Catacomb - We Shall Inherit
How is it still possible in 2002 to release a mini-CD, even self produced, with such an ugly presentation, looking like it's been done by a Moldavian graphic designer that would have been amputated of his two arms and forced to use a 1974 software?

That said, the six tracks present here on "We Shall Inherit" are not as ugly as the rest, even if it's far, very far, from causing any pleasure! Those guys from Toulon, who try to come back on the front of the scene after many years on stand-by, play obviously with their guts, which is a good thing. Sadly, what they propose us is way too common and unoriginal, sometimes even boring. Death Metal-tracks like these have been heard thousands of times already, which is quite annoying. And as the sound, the vocals, and the type of drumming are not so exciting either, things don't go the way they should.

After twelve years together, when you keep on writing tracks like that, then maybe you should begin to question yourself… because it's not with "We Shall Inherit" that CATACOMB will go far. (Online July 24, 2002)
