Deathred - _Senses Paramount Flowing Into Darkness_
by: Dan Lake (2 out of 5)
Dude... like, not even demos sound like this anymore. Here we are, though: Uruguay's one-man Deathred, conceived and played exclusively by Alfredo San Martin. Seven tracks. Ten minutes. Not grind. It's more like thrash-informed death metal, played in a tin garbage can at the back of a (man) cave and recorded several seconds later when the only sounds left are a few lonely, degraded echoes. Each track gets its own title, but _Senses Paramount Flowing Into Darkness_ sounds more like a single uninterrupted session that got snipped later. I know we usually grade these things holistically, but let's try picking out the various facets and see how she averages out:

Drum programming/playing (not sure which): 3
Guitar chops: 3
Bass: None
Vocals: None
Sound quality: 1
Songwriting: 1
Song variation: is there any?

There is an argument that ignoring those deemed unworthy of attention makes more sense than heaping criticism on them and thus making them more noticeable, and this review exists with that suggestion firmly in mind. Nobody who plays with this much fervor should be ignored completely -- the desire to contribute is itself worthy of applause -- but nothing this shitty should get any more attention than absolutely necessary.
