Release Date: 2001 | Tracklist

Review Summary: It's pretty understandable, if some people said that all the crucial thing about 'slam brutal death' is how to make that such style as groove as hell without leaving the intensity side of brutality itself!

This Japan-based Vomit Remnants, basically is brutal death act. They play the style what most people consider as slam death. With a lot of influences from the such Internal Bleeding, Vomit Remnants has placed themselves as one among countless global brutal death bands that people should consider to check out. Their EP Indefensible Vehemence which's released in 2001 is worthy to mention, especially for people who love not only plenty unpredictable, sweet, or even bizarre breakdowns, but also heavy and super groovy chugging riffs.

Indefensible Vehemence begins with a kinda electro pop/rock instrumental, not too bad despite it's also not special piece! First passage of second track "Prodigy Of Solitude" really kicks ass; mid-faced riffs with awesome drumming. However, this such groovy yet energetic sound is not relentless within whole duration. Soon the listener will find first breakdown for about seconds. Then guess what, it will be heavy and nicely groove again. Next passages, again and again there will be more breakdowns, and so on! As whole, within 20s minutes of music, another four tracks are delivered and blended in such track "Prodigy Of Solitude" typical taste. All of it is quite good and enjoyable. The only real problem or weakness, probably it's unvaried songwriting composition - yes right; it's adequately repetitive! Anyway, because of Indefensible Vehemence is only about 20s minutes, so it's not a surprise if this mini-album is not a boring stuff at all!

In relation to Vomit Remnants musicianship, actually they are not such a technical brutal death act. Hmm..., but, hey wait, they play slam death, right? Therefore, people should realize that this type doesn't really care at all for being technical, complex, or whatsoever! All crucial thing is how to make brutal death as groove as hell without leaving the intensity side of brutality itself! Vocally, Vomit Remnants used both low guttural and mid-ranged growl - and sometimes screechy scream. There is no any problem at all in their vocals style; the vocalist does fit himself to such type of brutal death. Guitar play also deserves a bit more appreciation, with a low tuning preference, the guitarist provides thick-rhythms, rapid and at the same time catchy riffs in almost entire the album. The bass guitar actually is not so audible, it's overwhelmed by guitars and insanely intense of their double-pedal drumming. Also, the drummer has played at his best; powerful, ferocious, and technically his drumming deserves a well praise.

Conclusion, Indefensible Vehemence is great release. It's definitely solid run of slam death stuff. Japan scene is always able to deliver the goods and offers the finest products, especially extreme metal stuffs. And, Vomit Remnants is one among many other Japan's metal acts that deserves a listen.
