MARTYRVORE
MARTYRVORE
Obliteration
(Deathrune Records)
40:51min

My first glance at this album's tracklist; with titles like 'Necroseptic Risen King', 'Iron Satan', and 'Nuclear Orgasm', had me rubbing my hands together with evil anticipation. Turns out, I was ready to turn on Top 40 radio by about song 6 (out of 19). Don't get me wrong, I dig BLACK WITCHERY, NECROHOLOCAUST, and even earlier REVENGE; but a band can't just keep every riff they come up with. "Obliteration" is half-hearted, monotonous, amateurish and bland. War Metal should induce arrhythmia, senseless vandalism, road rage, and spontaneous wearing of camouflage / dark glasses. The lack of good riffs on this album makes it seem like I've listened to a 6-CD boxed set rather than a 40 minute CD. As some may have noticed, the 'goatfago-gasmask' genre is teeming with guys who want to be at the top. If MARTYRVORE wants to stand among the elite, they need to spend more time crafting songs that will murder rather than anesthetize the listener.
