Misanthropic (Nuclear Blast)
by Scott Hefflon
It’s not really that Dismember is bad, they just really aren’t anything to write anywhere about. Recorded at Sunlight Studios, the production is ripping, and all the manic shredding elements are there, as is the token melodic guitar contrast, but for reason, it’s just not especially engaging. Give me Entombed or Grave any day, but what the hell, at least Dismember is on the right darkly-lit path.
