Review Summary: pissed

Ok so this is basically the best death metal album ever made. I woke this morning pissed as hell and threw some death human on and yeah the riffs were good and what not but it didn’t make me angry. In fact it was lightening the load of my anger which I wanted to harness. Thank everything that is righteous I had Suffocation’s Effigy on my I-pod. I threw that sh*t on and and f yeah I was heaven from track one.

The guitars are pissed and the drummers are perfect, favoring a heavy and speedy tone. None of that slow I don’t know how to wack my skin stuff. The drums are brutal and that high velocity of a tempo gets your blood flowing. The guitars get techy now and then and kinda twist your brain into madness, inducing a type of mental meltdown similar to the effects of lsd. If you punched a brick wall you’d be pretty stupid but when this sh*ts in your ear who gives a f, you just keep pounding and pounding until you’ve forsaken everything you own. Yeah man feel it. The production is raw and filthy and nasty and it stinks from time to time. Sometimes you can feel the vocalist gutturals right in your face and now and then you can get a riff of breath stench as he doesn’t give a f but just keeps going. Maybe its your man snatch but who cares, this is metal bro.

Several tracks like Involuntary Slaughter contain some solid blistering solos that melt face and tech fist. Just as riffs finished killing another riffs comes in and kills some more with trems chug whips. Suffo are a legacy and will not be forgotten. They’re the perfect solution to madness, to the craving anger in your soul that needs to let out frustration because you forgot your lunch for work today. The bassist doesn’t care about anyone. His long blonde hair bangs with every riff but you wouldn’t know that unless you saw these guys live but no posers allowed, the mosh pit is deadly. But who care life is about thrash not death. Life is about death not thrash. Think hard laddy’s.

pissed, I forgot my lunch for work today. I'm broke so I have to spend money I don't have and on top of that I had a healthy lunched packed and now I'm gonna gain some unwanted calories from eating out and thus prolong my goal of a six pack, f life
