DISEMBOWEL (Gre): “Zero Turns to One” Cd 2001 s/p


This is a band that definitely surprised me out of the blue. Especially considering that it’s self-produced, the CD is a fucking real
blast in the skull, with an amazing package and a production you
hear only once every few years. Professionally they’re all amazing
players, and use their top notch skill to create real damn top
notch quality songs. The sound in this disc is so crisp, so clean
it could easily be a Floridian Death Metal band right out of the
Morrisounds, the way strings and drum pair thru hyperblasting
speeds remind me only DIABOLIC (fuck, listen to the MP3 and see
if I’m boasting too much), or the best MALEVOLENT CREATION. or
better yet MORBIFIX. The only things not entirely Hyperblasting
Death/Thrash are the vocals who give the music a modern, post
core touch, kinda KONKHRA, the SEPULTURA of a few years ago, for
instance, or dunno, put here the name of any latest Diehard release.
When one gets this impressed one can’t but wonder how long these
guys have been playing or why they have not a contract yet, this
stuff is unbelievably high level and I can’t stop to say, damn
professional. What strays a bit from my views is the modern, industrial-metal
like sound and some of those overused FEAR FACTORY sonorities,
especially evident in the fourth song, when the vocals get filtered…
it’s a very unperedictable pairing, drummer of almost robotic
precision like this and death metal grunts, with this compact,
tight sound the drumming seems much more like a drum-machine than
a human and when the music gets real techno/trance with synth
beats… it gets a bit aehm… out of my range. But I am not the
one whining over modernity or electronic music at all. If it’s
used to symbolize the dehumanization of our society and so on,
it does its job the right way in my opinion. This said, the band
IS Death and Tharsh Metal, but don’t think they’re just another
FEAR FACTORY clone. I can only wonder what they could have done
if they kept it 100% Death Metal…
