In For The Kill
I feel like I am not the right person to review this, for the main reason I am not a fan of Grindcore in the first place, and INHUME just play a pure form of this genre. “In For The Kill” is the second full length of this Dutch six-piece, and you can’t say they are up for variety while listening to this 16 tracker. All the “songs” sound exactly the same, so in the end be prepared to experience a compact sonic barrage whose the efficiency I have serious doubts about. To play an extreme form of music is OK, but you have to keep a little space for variations, breaks and tempo or atmosphere changes to maintain your listeners on alert. This is a tactic INHUME chose to ignore while recording this, and this is too bad for both them and us. The main flaw of this record is the vocals, they are so outré that INHUME are constantly on the verge to become totally ridiculous. Come on, coupling the sound of an angry Daffy Duck with the distorted growl of a pig in agony (INHUME have two vocalists in their ranks) is fun during a very short time lapse and become annoying afterwards. I have no doubt INHUME will find their public despite this jaded review, especially if you consider the excellent sound quality of this record. It is just that they are a little too much for my personal taste. Recommended only for fans of straight ahead Grind. Contact: www.inhume.nl.
