Rotting Away Is Better Than Being Gay (Demo Track)
Dissector (Demo Track)
The band in question, PROSTITUTE DISFIGUREMENT, has been reviewed by me once before. That time it was “Left In Grisly Fashion” who got its judgement. It ended up with a nice seven out of and it could have gotten a half point higher if I had the day of my life. “Embalmed Madness” won’t get the same treatment as I find it to be a bad album. The worst part of it is the vocals; this is boring with a capital b. The second worst part of it is the sound of the drums, triggering gone wild. The guitars don’t sound too bad if you can hear them under the united noise of the vocalist and drummer.
On “Left In Grisly Fashion” the vocalist, Niels, has at least found his own style, a style that could be defined as pig on amphetamine, or something like that. On “Embalmed Madness” he just sounds like an ordinary bath tub growler. The sound quality is also higher on their newest release than this one, much higher. “Embalmed Madness” has what I would call an unbalanced mix, letting the vocals of Niels the bath tub dominate. I would like to add that I don’t think “Embalmed Madness” would have been saved with the issues I’m mentioning being taken care of, the songs themselves aren’t that good anyway, though they do show that the guitarists are capable technically speaking.
Some of the songs have a good impact at start but close to none of them are able to do more than just that, so close that on the whole record there is only one song that does it all right. It is the only song where the vocals actually add something to the music, instead of muting out the guitars. This song is called “Choking On Defecation”. If you have this one on a compilation don’t bother buying “Embalmed Madness”, go for “Left In Grisly Fashion” instead. (Online December 30, 2005)
