4.0 out of 5 stars Quite excellent, 23 Mar. 2004
This review is from: Pierced from Within (Audio CD)
I bought this album inspired by the strenght of the reviews which it recieved. All of what I read was true, this is (relatively) highly complex music played with high class musicianship. The vocals, guitar bass and drums cannot be faulted. However, there is one problem which I found with this band which may or may not be peculiar to me. While some of the
songs are very fast and intense, they are only so for short periods (e.g.tracks 3 and 9) after which, the music lapses into chugging 'grindcore' for an interlude only then the regain the energy, by which time the listener has lost the 'groove'. Don't get me wrong, the songwriting is superb throughout but I can't help feeling that sometimes the ideas on this album are too concentrated and some of the finer points deserve to be elaborated on. It seems like an unusual complaint, but it could be said that there is too much good material compacted into this album! I would have preferred a little more depravity in the lyrics but this is quite an old album now and people were more innocent then and easily shocked. The music sounds very fresh however after ten years and is highly recommended.
