a sure fire win from the start...
is a name which is well known throughout the UK and the rest of the world in terms of brutal death metal. The band first came to light with the Up to Our Nuts in Guts
split album with Leptotrichia
in 2004 and since then have gained massive popularity with their two full length studio albums. However the latest installment and second release from the band Wading Through Rancid Offal
is where I delve today, the album was released in 2009 through the ever popular Severed Records.
I had high hopes for this album being a big fan of Gargling with Infected Semen
, and I can certainly say it more than lived up to the hype, what with the mix of black comedy style song titles such as Projectile Beer Vomit
and perfect sampled intros the album was a sure fire win from the start. But in all honesty the album musically is a haven, the guitar riffs in particular are something that I find overwhelming in this masterpiece, a lot of riffs in death metal get lost due to the heaviness and speed but Amputated
have found a perfect balance where every note can be picked out which makes for an ever more catchy album. One riff that startles me every time is the opening riff to Psycho
-Doctrinal Lobotamization the use of all instruments in this sequence come together perfectly and for any brutal death metal fan this is a delight for the ears.
have really pulled out all the stops on this one proving brutal death metal as a genre to be taken more seriously, and creating a modern classic for the genre, if you haven’t heard Amputated
then check them out and pick up Wading Through Rancid Offal
a perfect album from start to finish and one that is bound to turn anyone into a slam freak.
