HUMAN MINCER
HUMAN MINCER
Embryonized
(Xtreem Music)
30:13min

What cheek! This is really annoying! Xtreem Music arose from the ashes of Repulse Records and obviously Dave Rotten is afraid of bootleggers. Could the same thing happen to Xtreem Music he experienced with Repulse? Consequently, they sent out promos with only 3 songs in full length. The remaining 6 songs are just edit versions. Long ones, but still... On one hand Dave demands in depth reviews and on the other hand we get something like this. Everybody afraid of mp3 bootlegging should send promos to me, I'm just too stupid and lazy for mp3. Shall I talk about HUMAN MINCER a little as well? Well, allright, then. Each and every band seems to be jumping on today's band waggon. There are so many CDs and demos around sounding like DISGORGE, DEEDS OF FLESH or SUFFOCATION presently that it really gets boring. Something Dave himself criticized not too long ago when we had that controversy about AVULSED. I'm puzzled. HUMAN MINCER belong to the frog noise department. Doesn't scare me anymore. Instead, there is some kind of monotony coming up although the band quite successfully tries to vary their style. 'Cerebral Torture' starts quite fast, then comes up with an even faster blast passage (in German I'd call it a rabbit fuck) which turns into some rolling double bass groove. On 'Death By Infestation' the groovy part is much heavier. Cool bass part, by the way, and the blast riff is making me dizzy. Similar recipe for 'Repugnant Desire'. At this point my attention usually is fading until the next one, namely the title track starts hammering me into the seat. Here DISGORGE (US) are clearly shining through. Doomy and sinister atmosphere. Then the edit version is over leaving me standing with dropped pants. I was just getting into it! And of course from then on this happens all the time! 'Son Of Decay' directly reminds me of 'She Lay Gutted' itself, you know, where the screams are coming through. To sum it up: just when I was about to rediscover my faible for frog noise, the label's policy prevented me from that. Still I would say that HUMAN MINCER delivered some good stuff in case you can't wait for new DISGORGE, MALIGNANCY, DISAVOWED, BEHEADED, DESPONDENCY... material. These Spanyards produce good stuff for addicts. www.humanmincer.com
