HERPES
HERPES
Doomsday
(Nihilistic Holocaust)
22:40min

This demo from the French formation HERPES shows us a copycat version of AUTOPSY. Some traces reminded me of PUNGENT STENCH during their "Been Caught Buttering" album but for the rest this is a mere clone of the "Mental Funeral" masters but without reaching the level. Midtempo muddy Death Metal with occasional Doom parts. The garage-like production helps to gain a familiar sleazy atmosphere but on the other hand could make this come across as a rehearsal tape. The 5 tracks 'Corrupted Flesh', 'Stench Of Death', 'Doomsday', 'Spinal Ashes' and 'Frozen Funeral' show that these guys have a long way to go. Apart from some nice parts and riffs it was not enough to convince or stick into my mind. It's not that bad, just totally unoriginal! Still in love with the rotten legacy of Chris Reifert and co.?
