WarpRider – It’s fast and ferocious and combined with the tremendously deep vocals, it kind of all blends together into a distorted mess. 1.5

Atleastimhousebroken – A couple points on the EP were pretty cool (especially the track Abrecan) and I really enjoyed when the sound went all “Satanic ritual” on me. However this 3 song EP is in need of some good editing as after so much evil fuzz things just kind of blur together. Band has potential to make some evil shit, but needs a lot of focus first. 2.0

Irmelinis –Including parts of meandering doom, carefully selected bits of sludge, disturbing atmosphere and relentless drums, this is leaving me with a filthy, silently chaotic and ultimately quite a boring feeling. 1.0

ChristopherMammal – If you want it hard and heavy, this black metal is gummed together with sludge, thickened with drone and embellished with extraneous noises from something electronic. It’s a short EP that succeeds as an instrument test but doesn’t make me want to rush out and curse any priests. 2.5

A Metal State of Mind Score – 1.8 out of 5

About ChristopherMammal

I've made it to Mammal. I still hope to be classified as Human one day. Meanwhile I have evolved enough to recognise different types of music as well as the shrieks of certain vervet monkeys who are known for their scurrilous behaviour in the proximity of unguarded bananas.
