On a purely dedicational level, I hardly believe there is a group of people in Italy as dedicated to the American Brutal Death scene as the guys that play in Vomit the Soul, so much obsessed with Death Metal version 2.0 to the point of forming a stunning quality label for everything dealing with teh genre called Permeated. These guys had things clear in mind since the beginning, and it showed a bit in this earlier demo work, though there are really a few elements here that will survive the evolution of the band to this day. The reference to Cannibal Corpse start and end with the name of the notorious song with Glen Benton on backing vocals as there is really nothing else of that band in these tracks. Heavy riffs a la Massacre are the main dish in this supper, but some timid leaks a la Internal Bleeding/Dying Fetus also appear at times. The vocals are steadily deep and I thank Max for not adding the high screams that seem to be so cool nowadays. I am not overly enthusiastic over the final result however, as it lacks energy to maintain alive the interest all the time and also lacks of the all-crushing slam energy which seems to be the main goal here, the problem is simple to exploit from my point of view: for a slow riff to crush the fuck out of everything, one has to build up the atmosphere step by step and release it into a shoveling chug once the pressure is high enough. If you keep on chugging all the time, things get quite monotonous quickly. There is no real wave curve to analyze, just a flat line. This is my two cents on the argument however, as this is not exaclt my style. Thnks will improve with time anyway, as I’ll explain in the next review.
