Exhumed - Anatomy Is Destiny
Who is a big CARCASS fan, such as me, and would like to hear another album by the UK legend should definitely check out the latest album of American EXHUMED. The whole CD seems to bear the signature of Jeff Walker and co. We get lots of blasts and also these great riffs that CARCASS had been known for can be found en masse… Also as the whole thing has been mightily fat produced by none other than Neil Kernon, who already had blessed QUEENSRYCHE, CANNIBAL CORPSE, JUDAS PRIEST or USURPER with a more than good sound.

Technically we see a perfect Death Metal album unleashed upon the pack and her and there we even get some Thrash tendencies, which adds even more intricacy to the whole thing. Divine bullets like "Consuming Impulse" or the hectic "The Matter Of Splatter" are just essential for friends of technical Death Metal. But these are not the only good songs on "Anatomy Is Destiny"! But for me the best and rest hardly gets any worse. CARCASS yes or no - EXHUMED definitely have their own note by now.

The only negative point for all gorehounds is the cover. Looks very harmless for EXHUMED, but that changes as soon as you have taken a look into the "tasty" booklet! So they basically stayed the same - and that is good! Despite the tuned down cover and the "commercial producer" the album is heavy as hell and pretty grinding! (Online September 20, 2003)
