Guest review by
The long awaited album from the groundbreaking grindcore band Cephalic Carnage is finally here and let me tell you, it really kicks some ass! This album, like it's predecessor "Lucid Interval," is a true masterpiece, but in a much different way. Once again Cephalic Carnage have by some sort of strange magical concoction created a record that manages to combine Grindcore and Progressive Metal. From beginning to end Anomalies takes you on a musical journey through the powerful (and vast) repertoire of this band. Each song distinguishes itself from the rest of the album as memorable and unique, while managing to maintain an incredible solidarity as a unit. There are not many bands that can do that this well, but Anomalies is truly quite the accomplishment. However, the music is very deep and really takes a couple of listens to sink in.

This album is average at best for me. I say this because virtually none of the songs are memorable, even if some of them (as on the longer tracks) do have spectacular moments that etch away from the Death/Grindcore traditions. It's the album that introduced me to Cephalic Carnage, but I don't think I'll be listening to it again.
