AmmiT - _Mass Suicide / Steel Inferno_
(From Beyond Productions, 2004)
by: Xander Hoose (4 out of 10)
The amateurism of AmmiT's _Mass Suicide / Steel Inferno_'s inlay doesn't promise much good, so thankfully I am prepared when I press play. I haven't heard black metal this uninspired for quite some time. And it's not even bad in a funny way, like Goat; it's just... bad. The bio states AmmiT has been heavily inspired by Sodom, Venom and Bathory -- three bands that had a great impact on the scene by doing something new, something exciting. A few exceptions aside, originality is hardly found on this album. _Mass Suicide / Steel Inferno_ consists of three parts, the first one being the 2000 _Mass Suicide_ album, which is actually the best part of this CD. The 1998 _Steel Inferno_ part has a horrible production, exceptionally low-volume and even more uninteresting songs. The last part consists of three songs from their 2004 studio sessions; the sound quality has improved slightly on these songs, but the vocals are so damned horrible it's impossible to listen to this without feeling ashamed. Had this album been released more than a decade ago, there would have been a chance for AmmiT to sell some copies. But alas, we live in 2004 and albums like these don't live up to any standard.
