Reincarnation - _Void_
(Repulse Records, 1998)
by: Adrian Bromley (5 out of 10)
What's with the production on this record? I could have recorded it better in my bathroom using a 4-track recorder. Anyway... the overall feel of this death metal / grinding blast beats-ridden 9-song outing is rather lackluster in my books. The riffs and blast beats are loosely tied together, leaving the vocals and rhythm section in shambles. While the band has captured a low, raw feel to their material (something that managed to be salvaged from poor production) it's not enough to keep this CD being a repeated play on my CD player. This is 'fast n' heavy' music for the sake of being that way. No real initiative to keep things in check. A loose cannon, that runs out of initiative and ideas after the first few songs. Basically, I've heard it all before -- and better.
