Oh come on you guys, can't you see how "Casper's Dictum" totally stole "Corporal Jigsore Quandary" in at least 5 levels? Yeah I know this is a rip-off band (aka tribute band/worship band) but this is just too fucking much, it's even worse than that KISS band with a really fat Gene Simmons and a sober Peter Criss...

People keep saying "uh dude! They have a really old fart playing the bass, that's cool or something"...why don't you quit already? I'm sure it's fun the first time you look a the band's picture, I know I farted while laughing when I saw grandpa gore, but after a while it gets boring and it only makes you think that guy is even older than your own parents, that he probably hated hippies and surely was a Herman's Hermits what's cool about being so old? Not a single thing, I mean he could be older than Paul McCartney, at least he still keeps his decency by playing great music and not being ridiculous just to scare his grandkids with album covers.

The music in this album is just...well...a Carcass clone! You'll find yourself swamped in 30 minutes of a half-decent Carcass wannabe album, ok they are good when they play, the execution is tight and they sound loud as only hell can be, just like millions of other bands out there; it's not worth it if they use their solid execution for a cloned songwriting right? It's just worthless...

Put on some Carcass or Repulsion, give me good worship bands like Disgorge (MEX) at least, not this shit, not Exhumed or Impaled, give me great goregrind, stuff that will make me want to puke in disgust because their music is too extreme for me, not bands that make me want to play with the cartoon tiger.

Their concept might be interesting for some, so if you really, REALLY need to hear this, download it and that's it, do not spend your money in this shit, try buying extreme stuff like maybe silly putty or one of those fridge magnets that glow in the dark, those things are at least cooler than this CD...this is like dry silly putty that won't even bounce or like fridge magnets without "kitchen"'s just an incipid copy of one of the best bands in metal history, nothing more and maybe a lot less.
