  Now I understand why so many people have Devourment tattoos!
Baz Anderson - 18.01.2010 at 23:45  
  Do they? I could think of many better bands to get tattoos of...

This is a good album though.

But it's the cover of the new album on my chest, not a fat guy with a small penis. Pics somewhere on this site

To really appreciate this specific version of this album, you gotta blast it loud using a good system. There's some sweet bass drops that you can't hear using crappy speakers due to the quiet sound production.

Rating: 8 The raw brutality and energy of this album make it a great death album. Not to mention the snare/"trash can" drums actually sound good here. Probably because they're not as vehemently amplified.

Rating: 9 This album is awesome, brutal as fuck !!

Rating: 8 I never knew "brutal as fuck" equaled good. Oh right, I forgot.

Yeah, it is quite a brutal and great album, very well executed in this case.

Rating: 9 As a brutal death metal /slam band .. the more brutal they are, the better they are..
just as the more melodic a melodic death metal band is the better.

its not that difficult really to comprehend.

Rating: 8 Well then, what a bleak and doomed genre this must be.

That's the most ridiculous analogy I've ever heard. You're basing your entire taste and perceptions of quality around pre-defined restrictions and constraints. What about all the amazing bands of the brutal death genre that employ melody effectively, or the aggressive, heavy fringe melodeath bands that break off from the norm? You've consigned all the middle ground bands to oblivion just because they don't fit with your draconian notions.

The only thing difficult to comprehend is how you came to this weird mindset. I don't mean that sarcastically either. I think you've created an odd, idealised idea of what's "metal" and what's not.

Rating: 3 It's not as though metal is on a plate right in front of you everywhere you go, bar perhaps a few Scandinavian countries. Finding it and understanding it often require some amount of research. Unless there's some bad influence going on here I'm not aware of.

Bad influence? That may appeal to his love of conspiracies (that he digests without doing his own research).

Although really, what bad influence could there be? Unless MS somehow inflates your ego?

Rating: 3 Well I meant in real life. Many people get into metal through a friend of something. He could have picked up some weird habits that way. The internet can generally be quite poor at shaping people and their way of thinking. The way people endlessly bitch about what's good, what's bad, what makes you a "nigel hipster" and shit like that. It could be a mini power trip to some. It's all speculation though.

I honestly dont understand what is weird about what i said ... if someone's into "brutal death metal' then he/she surely loves 'brutality' and the more brutl the band is the better it is to him/her .. same with melodic death metal or thrash or whatever, the more the band is 'capturing the genre's essence' the better the band is ...

so, wht i said was basic logic, and i didnt mean it in a plain generalization sense, for example: a 'general' metal listener who's into thrash for say, might like a brutal death metal band that employs melodies .. or thrashy chugging riffs .. while another 'general' metal listener who into black metal, might like a brutal death metal band that features frequent screams the way he likes.

BUT.. a die-hard brutal death metal fan would surely like bands that are true to the genre's elements, and the more 'brutal' the band is, the better they are for that kind of listener. imagine if you're a black metal fan for example and then there's a bm band that encorporates alot of death grunts in its vocals or maybe 2-minute long fast guitar solos in it, nd you hear everybody praising that band for being 'innovative' while you (as a true BM fan) you're not very fond of death grunts or fast solos, if you would u'd listen to death metal or thrash rather than BM... so, i think what i said isn't very weird... maybe u misinterpreted what i say, or assumed a plain generalization that i didnt mean.

cheers


EDIT: btw, thanks for the 'personality analysis' .. i'd gladly see any of you guys in your office as soon as you get your psychiatry degree.

Rating: 3 Perhaps so, but I personally don't enjoy bands more just because they fit overused genre tags like in this case "brutal death metal" and "melodic death metal" as if they're some kind of musical law which states that they must sound like their descriptors imply. I think it's better to try and take them out of their contexts and enjoy them as they are.

And to be honest the doom metal argument is still fresh in my mind.

And as I said it was speculation because I don't understand your way of thinking. Not a judgement on you personally.

Rating: 8 The thing about capturing a genre's essence is that a lot of the time it's real easy to get around it. Grindcore? Just strum a few downtuned chords or edit it afterwards on Audacity or something. Death metal isn't necessarily harder, you just may need to utilize some other techniques (pull-offs, hammer-ons, vibrato) or just strum more chords and variate a bit more.

And I really don't know how there are people who don't get bored of the same old generic essence after a while.

Also, doom metal argument was lulz.

I just found that out firsthand. I've had this album for a long time, but couldn't really get into it because the vocals drown everything else out on my speakers. But I listened to this album yesterday on a better system and it sounds really fucking cool. Now I see why this is considered by so many as the landmark brutal death metal album.

  Solid performance, awful song-writings.
