Who would ever think that Italy could produce Death/Metalcore bands? Well, that is where CRIPPLE BASTARDS come from and boy oh boy do they put a spin on the genre. "Fear In The Squats Of The Dead" is not only complex musically, but they throw in some shit that you wouldn't expect. It starts off rather mellow, yet complex then break into Death Metal with growling vokills then go off sounding like D.R.I. That right there is jacked up.
"When Immunities Fall" sounds more like Grindcore with a touch of old CANNIBAL CORPSE sound thrown in for good measure. The whole concept of Death Metal meshed with DRI style singing continues throughout the CD. Traditional Death Metal fans may be perplexed by this or might shy away from it, but those who want their Death Metal laced with Hardcore may find this rather amusing. (Online September 13, 2003)
