SLATER (GER) Playcorpse CD'01 SELFRELEASED
thing I've noticed here is the very professional sound for an autoproduction!
would remind me a lot of VADER and also some CANNIBAL CORPSE at
the time of "Vile" and "Gallery of Suicide"
could be named, by moments they've got some more complex stuffs
in the vein of DEVILYN. But well, while it remains on a more than
decent brutal level, nothing really turned me on... On more time
the black mark of averageness has taken it place! We're fucking
damned! Unfortunately no killer riff or really outstanding stuffs
occurred here... It's the kind of CD that can be cool for the big
Brutal death fan, but more is needed to Crush the weak and explode
the falacious anal conceptions of a moronic pregnant! Elements
of MORBID ANGEL/ ANGEL CORPSE could be found in some complex sounding
two guitars harmonies riffs. They've got somekind of a small
funny touch in the vein of SANITYS DAWN's "Mangled in the
meat grinder" CD.
Sometimes the tracks are a bit disorganized
(maybe I should start drinking vodka before reviewing?). The cover
isn't good. It's
brutal sounding and well produced, but in my ears the final
kick is fucking lacking! Express your inner warguts and it'll be
good!! More war from the inner guts of hell is needed to offer
some ultimate music that crushed everythings and doesn't cease to
exist once the band has split! When will the malediction of Averageness
cease to curse the Underground?
SLATER (Ger) Metzgore CD'04 CUDGEL.
Here's the second
album of this German band that seems to have a decent following
in Germany... and I don't understand why since JACK SLATER still
don't do much for me. What you can hear is brutal death grind with
lots of riffs and a good technical level... but apart from the technical
and professional points of view there's nothing special here at
all! Sounds like old ABORTED meets CANNIBAL CORPSE, some DYING FETUS,
SINISTER, and some SINISTER for example... Nothing really original,
nothing to kick the ass of a metal head who is in the brutal side
of metal for a bunch of years. Some guys will find JACK SLATER cool,
some will enjoy this album, but in my opinion it lacks of soul,
guts and genius! I expect KILLER riffs from a band who released
a second album on a quite big underground label!
ROT (Usa) Dead and buried CD'01 SEASONS OF MIST.
previous CD of JUNGLE ROT, entitled "Slaughter of the weak"
was quite cool, old school death with nice heaviness and grooves.
this new one doesn't turn me on for a pence, it's slower, heavier,
the grooves are less present and the death metal beats doesn't beat
at all. They have lost the fresh and catchy parts of their first
CD. They even sound like SIX FEET UNDER by moments!
be an Ok/ quite cool one for those who like their Death metal slow,
slow, groovy (a very little) and heavy. Pro heavy sound.
JUNGLE ROT should urge them to be more energized and intense as
the boomerang they brutally sent to slaughter the weak will probably
come back right in their face!
(??) When heroes will rise CD'02 NO COLOURS.
an answer to BATHORY's "Blood fire death", JUVENES is
in fact very much influenced by the cult Swedish Black metal band,
but I wouldn't call them an "answer"!
In fact, this
band is very much influenced by old BATHORY for an old ripping like
thrashing side and for some harsh sounding vocals.
are also in the old Quorthon's vein, a riff reminded me of INCUBUS's
They also achieved to find a drums sound that was similar
to some bonus tracks on the JUBILEUM Volume 1 and Volume 2 comp
Some tracks are heavier, a bit atmospheric (with synths),
and more influenced by "Hammerheart". But these tracks
sound a bit hesitating to me.
This album influenced by all BATHORY's
epochs didn't offer something I found memorable, but it may be cool
for those who have used (to the point of unearability) their old
BATHORY's vynils and can't find anything to satisfy their old need
for blackened aggression.
