EMETH
EMETH
Aethyr
(Xtreem Music)
43:27min

The return of GORGUTS recently had many Tech Death geeks jumping for joy. Some, like myself, however weren't so thrilled. To the minority of us (I assume), this new GORGUTS showed the band 'up-their-own-ass' with technicality. The songs meandered at great lengths without hooks, catchy rhythms, or any trace of bloodcurdling speed (LeMay since expressing disdain for the blastbeat). Thankfully, we have disharmonic Tech Death bands like EMETH to pick up where older GORGUTS left off. The material on "Aethyr" is consistently high tempo (a plus for me), with frankly staggering tightness for such abrupt rhythm changes and byzantine structures. Also of note is this record being much less processed and digital than most others in the genre. Kudos on skipping the 'typewriter' drum sound of obsessively corrected midi-percussion. Due to its schizophrenic arrangements and attention-deficit construction, I couldn't listen to "Aethyr" every day. However, if you're in the mood for complex stuff after one too many coffees, this album comes highly recommended. More at: www.facebook.com/pages/emeth/67507937997, www.xtreemmusic.com
