Dysentery – Fragments

dysentery fragments

In the New England states of the US, we may have some awfully cold weathers and short lived summers but boy do we have a great local metal scene! Massachusetts’ own, Dysentery, are back with their third full length release, Fragments (Comatose Music). Everything I could have hoped for from a brutal death metal band is on this album and then some. Deep guttural vocals, guitar/bass riffs that get a little fancy but keep it heavy, and of course some lovely slam sprinkled in. The album does a great job opening with instrumental track, ‘Onset,’ and coming full circle with the same riff in the closing instrumental track, ‘Oblivion’.

The one down side for me with Fragments was trying to decide what tracks were my favorite as most of the tracks seemed to blend together. I absolutely enjoyed what I heard but most songs sounded similar outside of the instrumental tracks and a select few other tracks. One such track was ‘Veiled Narcissism’ on the latter half of the album. This track had a memorable guitar riff to me and a monstrous squeal over a breakdown towards the end of the song. The very next track, ‘Within Descending Skies They Will Suffer’, may be my favorite on the whole album with a speedy guitar lick and easily the best build up on the whole album. Then the slam hits you right in the chest and then slowly evolves back into a second guitar riff that I caught myself whistling while typing this review up. I feel there were a good amount of tracks that just seemed to sound like each other and lacked a personality. On the other hand, the songs that did stand out to me were some of the best death metal tracks I have heard.

Fragments will reach deep down inside of you, find whatever evil side you possess within, and rip it out along with your intestines. I found the best times to listen to this album is when the day at the office was absolutely dreadful and all I wanted to do was play bumper cars on the way home. Instead, Fragments just turned me into a caveman as I pretended to club the life out of my steering wheel.

Coathanger Abortion – Observations of Humanity

1551507_10152704162931724_7758226545914039971_n

Coathanger Abortion, really? That’s a song title Cannibal Corpse would reject for being too stupid, but the five members of said outfit evidently felt it was just the kind of moniker to gain precious brutal scene points. Now if this was just a few kids eager to offend it would be understandable but these chumps have been around for fifteen years! What’s even more shocking is in that time they appear to have barely mastered their instruments, let alone learnt how to pen a half-decent death metal song, for sophomore release Observations of Humanity (Comatose) is one of the worst albums ever recorded.

Inexpertly combining the aggression and violent approach of Cannibal Corpse with the technicality and chunky riffs of Suffocation, yet with absolutely none of the ingenuity, skill and flair those two acts have exhibited for so long, Coathanger Abortion drag the listener through a tortuous fifty-three minute riff-salad of stolen ideas and clumsy execution that’ll have you wondering how something so utterly horrendous could ever be released by a label that wants to be taken seriously. The clear production only serves to highlight how inept proceedings are, with every out-of-time chord-change, sloppy piece of drumming or out of tune bass note standing out like naughty schoolchildren. Most contempt however is reserved for the appalling guttural vocals that sound like a parody of the Cookie Monster.

Many album reviews include hyperbolic statements along the lines of; “this record will give you bruises!” Observations of Humanity is no exception; however the bruises will be on your visage as a result of repeated facepalms, or from pulling a muscle as you frantically reach for the stop button. This is a record that makes the latest offering from Six Feet Under appear an enticing and cerebral prospect.

Hands down, the worst album to be released this year.
