Romantic Evening Sex All Themes. Check out tracks like "Decrepit Coma" and "Shrieks from the Hearse", you'll think that Piggy himself gave the band some riffs to use. King Fowley, the band's frontman, gives one hell of a drum performance on here. I have read that he doesn't like this album because it was played "too fast", but as a fan, I can safely say that this album has a unique charm due to the fact it's just a bunch of young death metal freaks playing at the edge of their ability, it's just ridiculous!
King's blast beats are quick, and he utilizes punk beats a lot too, which compliment the thrashy riffs perfectly. His vocal performance is unique to this album, he never really did his low style vocals after this. So many of these tracks are classics, and you'll get riffs stuck in your head pretty easy.
Not to mention, the lyrics are pretty catchy at times too, you'll find yourself singing along to songs like "Haunted Cerebellum" with it's gang vocals at the end. Little things in every song will jump out at you, making it an addicting listen. The production on this record is acceptable. It's not as heavy as say, Incantation, but seeing as these guys rely more on thrashy riffs and speed, it works just fine.
It definitely sounds like an early 90's death metal album, but don't expect a Scott Burns kind of mix. Anyone who is into death metal needs to hear this record. Full of great riffs, speed, and a really intense performance, you can't help but want to hear it again and again. You can get this album along with the "13 Frightened Souls" EP on one disc, which I highly recommend.
And you know what? The production is a perfect combination of rawness and clarity, and the two intertwine together and create one of the most fitting production jobs I have ever heard. This means that not only would it be out of place, but it would also hinder the overall brutality factor, ultimately doing nothing but hurt the recording rather than help.
Every instrument has a prominent, defined place in the mix, allowing nothing to be overpowering or too hidden beneath the filth. Not only does he sound like an utterly deranged demon who has watched one too many b-horror films, but he also does this with a range spanning from gruff barks, to bellowing growls, to deathly rasps, all of which are executed and meshed together perfectly, creating a truly maniacal and disorienting atmosphere that few others could.
He is also a pretty damn good drummer who knows a thing or two about rhythmic dynamics, as well as adding variety to what could potentially be a rather restricting field of drumming. He makes great use of his toms, but not in a flashy sense. Instead he uses them to fill empty spaces with just all out heaviness, leaving no breathing room for anything else, and I mean that in the best way possible.
The set itself is also pretty nice sounding, and it was miked well, with a full, rich-sounding ride cymbal, crashes that sound like he threw a silverware drawer down a flight of metal stairs, a deep, textural snare, booming toms and a deadened, thudding bass drum that actually sounds like a real bass drum. The guitar work on here is phenomenal. Not in a technicality sense, but in just a really god damn well written way, each riff containing so much power and heaviness that added technical extras would just diminish its power.
This of course opens a wide range up to lots of possibilities while still keeping order and not sounding allover the place, despite the number of ideas being thrown around.
The solos are also great, and alternate between bizarrely melodic tremolo picking and flat-out whammy-bashing atonal bursts of feedback that everyone was so good at back then.
Not only is the riffing excellent, but the guitar tones and the bass tone are just perfect. The guitars have a grimy yet fuzzy sound, and obviously have been soaked heavily in something stagnant and rancid for several years without ever changing strings. However, this is not death metal as you may imagine for , as I said, most of this material was written between and You have been warned. Deceased is a really brutal and extreme death metal band. Their debut album is really awesome.
At first I didn't really like it, I only liked Futuristic Doom. Then I listened to it more and I found the other tracks to be great as well.
Mark Adams and Mike Smith do some really awesome riffs and solos. The intro on Experimenting With Failure sounds really excellent. I'm extremely impressed by the solo of Futuristic Doom. It sounds really perfect to me. King Fowley's vocals are really awesome on this album. He knows how to really growl. Enlightened In Eternity by Spirit Adrift. On their fourth and best record, the heavy metal duo raise exultant riffs in celebration of perseverance and strength.
