INTERNAL SUFFERING
INTERNAL SUFFERING
Choronzonic Force Domination
(Displeased Records)
33:19min

KILLER! I really anticipated the new album by this brutal horde from Colombia. After the strong predecessor "Chaotic Matrix" I expected nothing else than a killer. And hell yes! It is a killer! This four piece outfit is able to convince me now the first time for 100%. The excessive touring after their last album had for sure a big impact on their song writing abilities as INTERNAL SUFFERING sound much tighter and more mature than before. It's a pleasure to listen to those 9 total blasting and lethal tracks. The drumming is incredible fast and tight, it takes no prisoners like a tornado leaving a path of destruction. The riffs are precisely and razor sharp like a scalpel, executed on a high technical level. Though all tracks are played on ultrasonic speed the songs don't get boring because these Death Metal warriors slow down at the right moment. The result are some great memorable morbid midtempo riffs, having this dark old school Death Metal feeling. After you have recovered a while the band attacks again with merciless speed. It's hard to highlight one track as all nine are furious and on the same technical level but to have an example just take the title track 'Choronzonic Force Domination'. It incorporates everything I mentioned before. A big plus is the production done by HATE ETERNAL's mastermind Erik Rutan. "Chaotic Matrix" was a little bit too clinical and 'dry' for my taste but fortunately with this brilliant production the songs of INTERNAL SUFFERING get their right performance. Very powerful, aggressive yet technical guitars and thunderous drum walls - a ballanced overall sound (no instruments are 'too' dominant). There's an utter dark atmosphere throughout the album (especially in the slower parts)... as Death Metal was meant to be. Also the vocal department improved in my opinion and the deep growls fit perfectly to the massacre. To sum it up: "Choronzonic Force Domination" is a killer album which should please everyone into brutal Death Metal and maybe also old school maniacs who like their stuff fast paced. These guys are much better than a lot of (overrated) US bands and prove that they are the leading force of the South American ultra brutal squadrons. By the way... the cover art which was done by Studio Sho (Mortician, Deeds Of Flesh) turned out excellent and top this masterpiece off. The only negative aspect: after a bit more than 33 minutes the massacre is over... but I guess your neck will be happy about this as more banging could be dangerous. Death Metal forever!
