DESENSITISED
Thriving On Carnage
(Bleeding Hemorrhoid Records)
16:35min

I am sorry, but I think this will not be a positive review of Dutch Death / Grinders DESENSITISED's debut MCD "Thriving On Carnage". Although they were able to surprise me when listening to it for the first time, because Steve Vaasen's Hardcore-like vocals differ quite a lot from the common Brutal Death / Grind growling & gurgling, which nevertheless appears on this release as well. But except the unusual vocals and the riff in the last part of 'Cover Up', there is sadly nothing on "Thriving On Carnage" I like - most riffs sound uninspired and boring, it has not such a great Hardcore groove like for example MISERY INDEX and definitely lacks of brutality, which makes INCESTOUS, DISGORGE or "the Masters of Groove" DYING FETUS so intense. DESENSITISED simply are nothing very special and do not seem that energetic and talented. I do not want to discourage the band or make fun of them, because I really appreciate anyone who plays in a band and struggles to release a demo or a CD, I know how hard this is, but when I compare the debut releases of younger bands like SEVERE TORTURE or DISAVOWED I simply have to admit that they are much more brutal, creative and entertaining than DESENSITISED. Maybe this band still needs time and I hope they will use it to improve their musical abilities, as well as the songwriting, but they should not give up and remember that even the gods SUFFOCATION were once considered crap. If you like to give them a chance, send 10 EURO or 10 $ to the address below. Contact: DESENSITISED, Randenborgweg 119, 6118 GJ Nieuwstadt, The Netherlands.
