DISFIGURED

DISFIGURED
Amputated Gorewhore
(Comatose Music)
32:00min

Damn fine, refreshingly uncomplicated Death Metal DISFIGURED from Texas delivers on its second effort “Amputated Gorewhore” after releasing one album back in ’08 already. Musically, I’d say fellow Tex-Deathers PUTRILAGE or IMAGES OF VIOLENCE can be named as comparable acts since the compositional formula is pretty much the same: traditional, highly effective riffing, low and powerful growls, some occasional snarls, fierce drumming, compact and accessible song structures, perverse lyrics (e.g. 'Raping A Retard', 'Chainsaw Buttplug') and a nice amount of tempo variation. A special “horns up” goes out to bassist Adam Deleon since his great playing notably enhances this otherwise pretty conventional piece of brutality, which is nicely rooted in 90s US Death Metal (references to CANNIBAL CORPSE, BAPHOMET, MORTAL DECAY in particular) giving the album a certain sickened atmosphere none of these DISGORGE-clones ever will achieve. Rounded off by a clear, fat and crushing sound, zombie-tastic artwork by Jon Zig, “Amputated Gorewhore” is as satisfying as a pizza from your favourite delivery service. Tastes fucking great but will hardly ever win any gourmet prize. It’s an album that makes you happy, that you will like despite being not special as it will give you a highly enjoyable trip back to a time when Death Metal was constructed out of riffs and feeling instead of rhythm patterns. DISFIGURED refuses to be ruled by the slam and still offers you something to remember by implementing the good ol’ hookline and kick ass riff. Classic - and because of that: totally recommendable. www.comatosemusic.com
