Some musicians should continue to concentrate on their main bands and save the world from their side projects and their releases. Part of these funny folks also are Chris Reifert (ex AUTOPSY, ABSCESS) and Killjoy (a.o. NECROPHAGIA), who have shit out their third CD of their project THE RAVENOUS. Yes, you have read correctly: shit! That’s the only expression I could give this acoustical special refuse.
Simplest structures, here faster, there slower, unnerving from the beginning to the end. Additionally the “songs” are enriched with a lot of samples from some horror flicks. What sounds really good with MORTICIAN turns into a bad joke with THE RAVENOUS. Who needs it as uncommercial as possible, has come to the right address, all others: hands off!!!
