Genre: Brutal Slamming Death Metal
I'm being completely honest when I say that I think most brutal death metal is complete garbage; apparently ripping off Suffocation and Cryptopsy is harder than you think. Add in the whole "slamming" aspect and what you're left with is essentially deathcore.. which you know, generally stinks. That being said, Abominable Putridity is the exemplification of brutal slamming death metal and yet they are fucking awesome. They don't do anything particularly different from their contemporaries, they are simply just better. It's the perfect blend of old-school technicality, indomitable grooves and intelligible gurgles. Oh yes, there are plenty of gurgles - I mean IT IS Matti FUCKING Way - but his clever interplay with the monstrous chugs works amazingly well, creating tons of sickeningly memorable chops in the process. Usually albums like this tend to blend together, and though the tracks here definitely share some similarities, the variety grooves and moshing sections still gives each song its own distinctive feel. This is slamming brutal death metal for fans of the genre, and people who thought they could never appreciate music like this. Recommended.
