The second release of The Berzerker is the most intense, fast and brutal ever. It really blows the selftitled out of the water.
The first song I heard from this album was the brutal No One Wins, in a mp3 file, along with The Principles And Practices Of The Embalming. Two brutal and extremely fast tracks that worth to get this album.
The Berzerker are four anonymous guys only recognized by their instruments: "The Singer", "The Bassist", "The Guitarist" and of course "The Drummer". Yes,The Berzerker used a drum machine only in their selftitled. Yes, it's the true, many people can't believe it, but the 909 kickdrums are played by a guy that can reach over 1143 beats per minute(aproximately 20 beats per second; The Berzerker's drummer play the drums, and then, the sound of the drums is distorted in an industrial-sound frenzy.
The singer is a growls' master and is helped with screeching vocals (I don't know if it's the guitarist or the bassist who sing these vocals...), and the bass and the guitar are the pure sound of a chain-machinegun.
Contrary at the people say, this band from Melbourne make Brutal-Industrial-Death metal, and not Grindcore as bands like Carcass or Cattle Decapitation. The sound is totally different, man.
My favorites would be Death Reveals,No One Wins, The Principals And Practices Of The Embalming and the cover of Carcass' classic Corporal Jigsore Quandary,(that some people said it's bad, and it damage the original version), man, you have your opinion and ME the mine, and I'll only agree that I prefer to hear this version cuz it's louder and more brutal a million times than the original.
In conclusion if you want to hear the most brutal and fast drums in the world in songs as Death Reveals and No One Wins, then pick up this wonder of extreme metal. If you want it, you can buy now this CD with the selftitled, but be sure that it's better this than the selftitled.
