Nebrionic - _Psycho One Hundred_
(Displeased Records, 1996)
by: Adrian Bromley (6 out of 10)
Four-piece Nebrionic (known years ago as Nembrionic Hammerdeath) have always felt to be 'with the program' in regards to playing music that seems fitting for the moment. Not bandwagoners to the music scene, rather students learning of the styles whisked in and out of the multiple genres of metal music, trying to grab hold of styles and thus incorporate them into their music. _Psycho One Hundred_, the second offering for Displeased Records, is once again a stepping stone as the band evolves with its multiple styles and songwriting (very dark may I add). Calling it death metal would serve no justice as you would have to add grindcore and speed metal to the name as well; let's call it multi-faceted metal. The album itself may be versatile (numbers like "Strength Through Power", "Death to the Harmless" and "In Ebony") but in the longrun there is no real congruency with the styles and at some points in the record seems to be rather loosely pieced together. Maybe too many styles put in one basket was not a good idea? Hmmmm... something to think about. While _POH_ may not stir ravage mosh pits and fists of fury, some material off the record can do some damage.
