CARDIAC ARREST
CARDIAC ARREST
Haven For The Insane
(Ibex Moon Records)
42:30min

Old school Death Metal is a tag that's used for a lot of releases these days. Many are able to fit the profile and do know how to convince but you still can (clearly) recognize some 21th century blood in them. With CARDIAC ARREST "Haven For The Insane" I felt it's like the other way around. This release sounds so convincingly old that it sounds fresh and would most likely be released at the same period when the first releases of MALEVOLENT CREATION, IMMOLATION, GOREAPHOBIA shook the scene. First of all the production is near perfect and resembled a bit of a rawer version of (the godly) "Mortal Repulsion"! Kai Kauffman's Polymorph Media Studio did a very great job here so more power to them. Former RELLIK vocalist Adam Scott is spitting his hatred upon you in blooddrenched grunts, while executing some very effective riffs together with Tom Knizner. Both supported by the rhythms of Dave "Amsterdamn" Holland (Dutch roots?) and drumming machine Jim ".50 cal" Deabenderfer. All four are responsible for some brutal music. Brutality on this disc is an emotional form of making music instead of a measure of speed or production. The 12 tunes range from deep groovy heaviness, to headbanging midspeed to blasting outbursts and a track like 'Extinction Endured' is one of the 2010's best Death Metal tunes from across the Atlantic I've heard so far. Although it's a bit too much the same at the end and will probably not end in the league of classics, it's a highly aggressive, intense and very cool release! Most likely responsible for a lot of neckinjuries and concussions. Don't miss this one, if you do, blame yourself! www.myspace.com/deathrot, www.officialabyssrecords.com, www.ibexmoonrecords.com
