DESENSITISED / PEACH HER
DESENSITISED / PEACH HER
Bought Beauty / Gastrophobia

Hmmm, I will divide this review - as usual - into two dimensions. That is, a descriptive and a prescriptive element. DESENSITISED are from the Netherlands and play sort of old school, underground, down-tuned Death Metal with some Hardcore elements in the sound. The songs are rather mediocre, no interesting twists - just elemental speed-attacks and Thrash beath being smashed into your face. Every once in a while I feel reminded of acts like PUNGENT STENCH, MASTER etc. when it comes to structure and effects. The sound on the whole is very rough, a bit weak I think to be honest. The vocals are boring... not really extreme --- just mid-range again. Now for the prescriptive bit --- bands who want to be extreme should be extreme. This certainly isn't... go to a proper studio, think about your intentions still and do something more consequent. PEACH HER --- geeee, what an insipid and boring name. This woman-dissing, sexual-frustration-compensating, snob thing is sooooo yesterday. But the of this second band is better and actually more extreme than that of DESENSITISED. The guitars are down-tuned... or even 7-stringed?! I like the chord work on this output... some interesting cadences and lines. These guys seem to be inspired and influenced by INHUMATE, INHUME, HAEMORRHAGE and friends. Thus - gore-regurgitating, fast, primitve Grind, Death Metal... you name it. I don't like such bands' intros and intermezzi... they bore me to death. There are certain humoresque elements to DESENSITISED sound and that's alright. The groovy parts sound cool at times, but also very superfluous and ridiculous when the vocalist sound like a crappy hip-hopper. Not my kind of music as you will sense... www.grodhaisn.cjb.net/
