Need a facelift? Or just feel like being punished with a different set of tools of torture a little bit? Fine then. Your prayers have been answered... at least sort of. Namely the Swedish grinding death mongers Vomitory, who have been around almost 20 years already and released 6 albums during their whole career, knows exactly how to terrorize, brutalize and sodomize - just like their latest album is called: TERRORIZE. BRUTALIZE. SODOMIZE.
Those of you who are already familiar with this Swedish Death Metal squad, should know what to expect from TERRORIZE. BRUTALIZE. SODOMIZE. Hateful, aggressive, grindy and brutal are naturally some of the most important, cliché-filled keywords to describe the overall outcome of Vomitory´s new 10-song effort, and that´s what Vomitory has always been all about ever since this band was started.
Musically Vomitory has more than just a thing or two in common with Napalm Death; one only needs to listen to some of Napalm Death´s last albums quite carelessly to notice some of the many similarities between two of these bands as far as both of their song structures are concerned. If you don´t hear this, then please check your ears in order to go on making any further arguments about this matter, ok? Then again, a song like “March into Oblivion” has undeniably its strong Bolt Thrower´ish vibe dominating the song - and I guess that´s not even a coincidence to spot all these influences out from Vomitory´s songs on this album. Sounds just way too familiar, doesn´t it?
After a few listens, all this is growing old pretty soon and getting a teeny-weeny bit tedious and repetitive. Or maybe it´s just me who´s started to sound a bit repetitive here? Anyway, I find neither anything particularly exciting to say about them, nor about this album for that matter, so... (!)
