In For The Kill
November 2003
Released: 2003, Osmose
Rating: 3.0/5
Reviewer: Lord of the Wasteland

If bands like Hate Eternal are too slow for you and you scoff at the lack of gore in Cannibal Corpse’s lyrics, check out Inhume. On IN FOR THE KILL, the Dutch band cranks out 16 songs in 31 minutes and each one is similar to the next in speed and aggression. This is straight-up brutal death/grindcore. Inhumed isn’t exactly reinventing the wheel but they do throw in the odd guitar solo to break up the monotony. What always impresses me with music like this is how the drummer is able to keep up the frenetic pace. Granted the songs are short but to play these live for 30-45 minutes straight must be absolute torture! The vocals are double-tracked Deicide-style, with a low, guttural growl on one end and a piercing shriek on the other. Production is surprisingly strong for this genre however the vocals do suffer from being buried a bit too low in the mix. One thing that grabbed my attention immediately is the cool cover featuring what looks like a blood-drenched giant man/machine ripping through a sea of bodies.

As far as originality goes, Inhumed is going through the motions of what bands like Napalm Death and Carcass were doing in the late 80s and early 90s. The songs lack in variety and I defy anyone to tell the difference between them but if you want a hard-hitting grind album, pick up IN FOR THE KILL.
