From the first moment I laid eyes upon this CD I knew this wasnít my cup of tea, donít get me wrong, I think the cover art is great, nicely done and everything, but once you put this on your record player you come across with something that zillion bands have tried to accomplish, old school Death Metal.
Iíll keep this short and concise, you have the right elements done in a repetitive way, the fast drumming, the rapid riffing and the unintelligible low-grunted Death Metal vocals. I mean, whatís the point of not letting anybody know a single word you say?
Grufff grrrffstrrrrrrr bruuuurrrggggg urrrg trruuuggggg grrroooowwwwww, that defines quite graphically how the vocals sound in this album, ok, thereís some bands that use more brutal and grunted vocalsÖbut I found these particularly more annoying than, take for example, CANNIBAL CORPSE (which I sense as a main influence here).
The good thing about this is that not all the record is so brutal, it has some mellower parts and some really inspired moments, but the overall experience leaves you somewhat unsatisfied at the end.
Recommended for more brutal stuff fans and for those who like their coffee black and their lyrics indecipherable. (Online March 1, 2004)
