House By The Cemetery (Relapse)
by Scott Hefflon
Incoherent growling in that Cookie Monster belch style over fuzzed-beyond-tone guitars and bass set to a fucking drum machine on hyperspeed is not my thing. The sampled intros are from some great B-movie horror flix, but their covers of Celtic Frost and Napalm Death classics are, well, terrible. Vomit in a toilet bowl and smash your knuckles into something really hard, really fast – it sounds the same, and it’s equally painful.
