Deadborn
Mayhem Maniac Machine
May 2012
Released: 2012, Apostasy Records
Rating: 2.0/5
Reviewer: Infamousbutcher

Germany’s Deadborn is a technical death metal band that originated in 2001. Their first album “Stigma Eternal” was released in 2007 following their “Decades of Decapitation” EP. Their new release “Mayhem Maniac Machine”, is my first exposure to the band. The album has a very “been there, done that” type feel to it, nothing really stands out much. It sounds like good thrash guitars with death metal drumming and some ordinary death metal style vocals.



Things kick off with “Premises of Cryonics”, a fast song with blast beats and thrashy guitars. The “technical” label comes from the guitar work of Jo Morath and Kevin Olasz, which at times is complex with intricate solos and melodies that contrast the frequent hammering blast beats. Deadborn’s biggest weakness is vocalist Mario Petrovic, who sounds a bit like a watered down Brett Hoffman (of Malevolent Creation fame) minus his impressive range. Mario’s vocals just don’t have much depth, range or dynamics. This leads to the album feeling redundant. Song topics are futuristic with robotic themes. Best tracks are “Profanatic Reanimation”, “Bionic Abomination”, and “Second Order Cybernetics”. No problems with production, everything is well mixed and balanced.



This is a pretty generic modern death metal release. There is little here to demand repeat listens.
