None so great!,
This review is from: None So Vile (Audio CD)
Cryptopsy's 2nd full-length album set a new benchmark for technical death metal, with a blaze of ferocious guitar riffage beaten into submission by the almost inhumanly fast drumming of Flo Mounier. Incredibly fast and technical, with a fantastic production featuring dirty guitar tones and high-pitch snare drums, this is pure heaven for anyone who is a fan of extreme death metal. The only slight quibble I have with this record is vocalist Lord Worm's appalling diction (half of the time you wonder whether he's actually mouthing the words or just wailing a wordless moan) but he makes up for that with some amusingly bizarre lyrics, even if you can't understand a word he sings. Great stuff.
