First of all I want to confess that brutal styles of Metal aren't exactly my cup of tea, I can hear them but only for a while, (this includes Brutal Death Metal/Grindcore and True Black Metal) so, I want to do a fair review, even though I don't really like this stuff.
PERVERSITY are hailing from Slovakia and this is their first full-length album. The moment that the first minutes of the opener song "Hallucinatory Mutilation" started to pierce my ears, I knew that PERVERSITY and I wouldn't be the best of friends…
Pierce my ears? No, is not what you're thinking, I can stand brutal music, but I prefer other styles, so, why this pierced my ears? Because the production is awful! The drums sound like a tin can and the bass player is wandering in another universe, playing a totally different song than the rest of the band, not to mention that the bass guitar is way much in the front of the mix, giving the music a chaotic sound.
I only found one song that caught my attention, "Carnivorous Visions" that starts with a playful but dark keyboard sound, that reminded me of Tim Burton Movies. I want more of this!!!
So, I didn't like this at all and of course that's my opinion, many people that like brutal stuff may like this, but you're warned: the production sucks. (Online November 24, 2003)
