Resickened
(Razorback Recordings)
51:15min

It's kinda weird that this band originally started out as the alternative playground for three members of a Black Metal act (WRAITHEN) in 1998... I mean, which "serious" Black Metal musician feels the urge to come up with music in the vein of AUTOPSY and IMPETIGO these days? That's definitely not a "true" attitude, hahaha... But anyway, "Resickened" is already the band's second full length, following 2002's "The Autophagous Orgy" and marks a big step forward for these sickos! While the debut still didn't really manage to impress me too much, "Resickened" completely changed my mind! This is very well executed, brutally performed and incredibly professionally recorded material that often recalls "Necroticism" era CARCASS (song structures and musicianship), with a Bill Steer like, harmonized vocal delivery and a bunch of very cool, old school SweDeath influences (CARNAGE, CREMATORY, GENERAL SURGERY, early CARBONIZED etc.). Even the coverartwork (another pretty sick drawing) was heavily improved this time and luckily doesn't have those annoying Manga / Anime similarities anymore. So, if the disc wouldn't come up with an annoying hidden "track" after approximately seven minutes of silence (just to reveal a bunch of noisy sound collections, probably backwards played stuff or something), I wouldn't have found anything negative to complain about here!
