DEMENTOR
DEMENTOR
God Defamer
(Osmose Productions)
33:18min

Of course, DEMENTOR have invented nothing... but wait a minute, what a KILL this album really is! I already dug their previous effort ("Enslave The Weak") a lot because it resurrected the MORBID ANGEL of old quite a bit, while their pre-Osmose days left me in a blank state. This time, the sound has evolved a little (due certainly to line up changes, with only founding member René still present today within the DEMENTOR ranks) and the style is more straight forward than before, think of brutal Death Metal the American way, but with a touch of finesse and a crispier sound quality. These Slovakian butchers know how to play the Death and at no moment the band can be caught playing dull or mediocre. In fact the intensity throughout the whole disc reaches insane proportions: be prepared to an orgy of demented riffs, manic drumming and really hallucinated vocals. The production, this time courtesy of knobs master Andy Classen, is faultless (far better than on "Enslave The Weak"), the songs are kept short and to the point, and the artwork created by the Polish art god(s) Graal is sick and superb as usual. I think DEMENTOR have reached their peak with this one, I just hope they will maintain themselves at this level in the future. I can't say anything more about this offering. Quality is rare enough these days to be left ignored so buy the record and enjoy this gem without moderation. DEMENTOR are among the five best Death Metal bands in Europe. Did I make myself clear?
