4.0 out of 5 stars Corpse Continue the Standard of Excellence!, 12 Mar. 2012
This review is from: Torture (Audio CD)
How twenty plus years into their career they only proceed to get MORE brutal is unbelievable. The inventiveness goes up a notch on this album (though don't expect to hear an acoustic track!) and the fact that Pat O'Brien and Rob Barrett contribute as much to this album as Alex Webster gives the album a more diverse feel. Possibly their most consistent album yet.

Demented Aggression is as good a track as any to kick off an album and we're thrown right into brutality and the ears are assaulted relentless til the end track! As Deep As the Knife Will Go is an instant classic and will no doubt be a setlist regular, possibly the best on the album. Scourge of Iron fools you with a thrash intro but is the obligatory slow showstopper, in keeping with Death Walking Terror/Evisceration Plague of the last two albums and possibly Pat's best solo maybe? However it probably comes too early on in the album.

There are a few nods to old school Corpse on this offering, Crucifier Avenged stood out as sounding similar to Butchered At Birth's Meat Hook Sodomy. Alex Webster fanatics like me will be pleased to hear the bass break on The Strangulation Chair is UNREAL and the bass outro to the relentlessly fast Rabid is awesome! Another standout moment is the hook to Followed Home then Killed (possibly second best track) is tripped out, unlike anything I've heard from Corpse yet.

No high screams from George here but the deep vocals are on form and packs the usual standard of relentless and unbelievable speed and brutality. The sheer musicianship on offer here is astounding, every band member gels together perfectly to make one of the most devastating collective band of musicians in metal today. Highly recommended!
