Monster Decay
(Carnal Records)

AGGRESSIVE MUTILATOR are a duo from Sweden that's been going on since 2012, and during this time they have released a number of demos and a full-length album. Several of these demos have a short length, such as this one, with four tracks that, all together, do not reach the duration of nine minutes. They play very primitive Metal, and very primitively recorded as well. Even in a bedroom it must not be so very easy to record with such a rotten sound in the current day and age... but in fact you can still distinctly hear the guitar, the distorted bass, drums and vocals... and even make out some of the lyrics once in a while. Also, there is a certain personality to the songs; they don't sound all the same. In the opening one the vocals actually remind me a little bit of Gerrit of SACRED STEEL for some reason! Check it out! Then the title track, in my opinion the best in the demo, is faster and more brutal, an assault of Black / Thrash / Punk not unlike TOXIC HOLOCAUST and DARKTHRONE after turning Crust. Quite fucking good, if still a reverb feast rising from a gutter. The third track (called 'Leather Apron' and evoking images of some sadistic butcher) is much slower and more generic, and it all wraps up with a short total Punk Crust finale. I have a soft spot for stuff like this, even if this is a bit too low-end even for me. Still, I'm sure they actively put some effort into sounding like this, and having a hand-drawn logo etc. Thumbs up for the lads. Go look for more info on these rabid scavengers of the deepest underground at,
