"Whore Of Violence" is simply a good solid piece of Brutal Death Metal, nothing more and nothing less, and as with most French bands that I have heard they seem content with praising their influences in their music while remaining a little too timid to try and shine in their own right.
CARNAL LUST's "Whore Of Violence" will please anyone who is into Swedish styled Death Metal with a bit more crunch. This album is packed full of nice guitar riffs and good solid percussion work as well as a nice dual vocal styling (the higher of which is actually pretty damn good).
Those who enjoy the more technical side of Death Metal won't find anything interesting here as there is absolutely no lead guitar to speak of but those who just want a few good riffs to nod your head to for 40 minutes can be assured that this release will satisfy your urges.
This release contains enough promise to make one assume that if the band inject a little of their character into their music they will develop into an impressive Death Metal force, but as it is this is a very unoriginal release but worthy for die-hard fans of the genre. (Online June 5, 2003)
