I HAD to check out this band after seeing them list themselves as a "Space Death Metal" band, with a
hometown listing of "Fucking Space." As far as sound? Gorguts having buttsex with Blut Aus Nord. That spawn
child fucked an Immolation/Deathspell Omega mutant baby and then that new Gorguts-nord Immospell
Omega mutant fish frog laid an egg, which fell through a black hole in space and resulted in the album
presented in front of you.
Words can't describe how technically off the wall their brand of death metal is. Plus, they have the best album art I've seen in a long while and a cool sci-fi theme to boot. Gonna go watch Terminator 2 now!
So much creative metal this year, and Labyrinth Constellation is no exception. Basically, Artificial Brain have taken death metal, and infused it with a spacy atmosphere and lyrical approach. This album is perfectly technical without too much overlap, the atmosphere could be described by its cover, and the feeling is loose and free. The vocals are sometimes underwhelming or by the books, but they still work atop the impressive instrumentation. Simply, one of the best metal albums released this year. 4.2/5
Somewhere in between outfits such as Gorguts and/or Bolzer, Artificial Brain give their own take on how transcendental death metal should sound. Although they stand a few steps lower than the latest offerings of both aforementioned outfits, Artificial Brain do a pretty good job with their own material.
