No Friends Here
(Still Dead Productions)
After two demos this five-piece from the US releases their debut consisting of eight tracks of heavy contemporary American Death Metal. Overall, the songs are more of a groove oriented nature with lots of double bass drumming and powerful riffing – but not pure “slam – riffs” from the frognoise department. Variation comes in form of the occassional SUFFOCATION-type breakdown as well as several fast outbursts. While having some influences from modern Slam / Grind they don’t quite belong into that genre as the vocals are deep but understandable and MOLESTED SENSES actually come around with some powerful arrangements. Perhaps this is more similar to SKINLESS’s style but with less dominant basslines. Here and there I feel reminded to US Death Metal from the early nineties but that impression lasts only shortly before rhythmic elements take over again. I am not too familiar with this genre, all I can say is that MOLESTED SENSES are solid, perhaps even more – that’s up to you to decide. Contact: MOLESTED SENSES, P.O.
