Best Brutal Death release I've ever heard. Composition-wise, there's nothing more to improve. Lord Worm's vocals are majestic. And it's as br00tal as it gets. Love it!

Now, I just wanted to elaborate this comment and add descriptions to the sheer awesomeness of this wonderful album. Now, After releasing their first album, Blasphemy Made Flesh, these Brutal Death Metal guys from Montreal, Canada cranked up the brutality, speed, intensity and insanity, making their sophomore release, None So Vile THE BEST Brutal Death release of all time. Now, I've heard a lot of Brutal Death records and from time to time they creep up the list of (what I think are) the greatest releases. Then I change my mind after listening to this album again. Mainly because this album has all the creativity and freshness an album can have.

Now on to the actual album review. The album clocks in at 32 minutes, which some may consider a short time. The first song, Crown of Horns(obviously a play-on-words) opens up with Flo's fast, intense drumming and Lord Worm's deathly scream. When I first heard this song, only by listening for 10 seconds I thought that the sheer shove-it-in-your-face brutality was utterly amazing and nothing alike what I had listened to. The song then quickly goes into the first verse: a nicely paced riff, the same crushing drums, with Lord Worm incomprehensibly barking like some sort of schizophrenic maniac. The song quickly turns into another phase, exhibiting different drum lines with ever changing riffages. The riffs these guys incessantly throw at the listeners are amazing; they are really, really creative with lots of unexpected progressions. Not only that, but the wide range of riffs they showcase is extreme. You'll probably hear more than 10 guitar riffs per song, all really distinctive and different with no regurgitations. Now, some of you may be familiar to your standard Brutal Death song flow, so you may think mid-song that the song structure is somewhat bland. Cryptopsy breaks that thought instantly by actively incorporating breakdowns. That's right, the ones you hear in (suffix)core subgenres. The usage of breakdowns is what spices up the songs more. In Crown of Horns specifically, around the 1:50 mark the song breaks down into a slower time signature, producing more of a heavy feeling compared to other parts of the song. You can't help but headbang to the breakdown parts as the songs proceed in a headbanging-friendly manner. I think that would be a killer live show experience. (My Favorite breakdown is from Benedictine Convulsions around 3:25. The deathgrowl by Lord Worm makes it so much better.) After this part, the song proceeds to a reprise and ends with stuff that were played before, mostly with a slight difference.

Let's talk more about creativity regarding progression of songs. The song Phobophile opens with a piano part, breaking the expected-of song opening that uses heavy drums and gritty vocals. Then the bassline comes up, building up the whole song to drop it down on top of the hill. The song proceeds using the bassline as the main riff. Then the song actually goes through a rollercoaster of tempos. It rises and falls, then halts at just the right moment, to progress to another major breakdown. Then the song climbs up another mound and then dramatically falls down. What I'm trying to shed light on is that they destroyed the standard(no brainer) groovy and slamming song structure, adding a lot more to the songs.

All in all, this album is really the embodiment, the epitome of what a perfect Brutal Death Metal work should be like. This is my number one BDM release of all time and probably will be till the end of time.

한떄, 리듬라인에 있어서는 데쓰메탈 전체를 통틀어서 이 밴드에 견줄만한 밴드가 없을 정도로 베이스 드럼 라인이 탄탄하고 강력했던 Cryptopsy 의 정규 앨범 none so vile 이다.
이 앨범을 플레이 하는 순간 전작의 흔적은 싹 지워진다. 흔히 말하는 테크니컬 데쓰의 단점인 지맘대로 아무렇게나 질러대는 리프와 대부분의 브루털 데쓰메탈의 단점인 '진정성' (굳이 덧붙이자면 초창기 데쓰의 느낌?)의 부족함을 메꾸며 탄생한 이 앨범은 테크니컬함 과 분위기의 heavy함을 모두 잘 소화해내고 있다.
테크니컬 데쓰가 무엇이냐, 더 나아가서 데쓰메탈이 무엇이냐를 잘 보여주는 앨범이라고 생각한다. 데쓰메탈에 조금이라도 관심이 있다면 꼭 들어봐야할 앨범

캐나다출신 테크니컬/브루탈 데쓰메틀 밴드 Cryptopsy 의 정규 2집 앨범이다. 본작은 데쓰메틀 뿐만 아니라 익스트림메틀이라는 장르에서 최고의 명반 중 하나로 인정받고 있는데, 데쓰메틀 초기의 과격함과 파괴적인 모습에서 더욱 발전하여 창조적인 리프와 변화무쌍한 전개로 데쓰메틀계에 한 획을 그은 앨범으로 평가되기도 한다. 각 악기 파트별로 보면, 기타는 쉴틈 없이 빠른 전개로 청자를 압도하는데 가끔씩 돋보이는 클래식적인 느낌의 리프가 인상적이고, 베이스는 기타와 더불어 속주가 주를 이루지만 종종 솔로플레잉이 청자를 즐겁게 한다. 드러밍은 기계가 치는 것처럼 빠르며 정확하고, 보컬은 저음그로울링 뿐만 아니라 내지르는 고음그로울링도 멋드러지게 구사한다. 이 모든 파트가 모여서 하나하나의 곡으로 완성된 결과물인 본작 None So Vile 은 데쓰메틀 팬이라면 그냥 즐길만한 음반이 아닌, 반드시 들어봐야만 하는 음반이라고 생각한다.

무슨 말이 더 필요한가

이런 지저분한 테크니컬 데스메탈은 별루
level   (90/100)
노래라기보다는 구토를 하는듯한 역겨운 보컬과 신선하고 세련된 리프들이 너무 좋다
level   (85/100)
드럼에 놀라고 가사가 있다는 사실에 더 놀랐다.
level   (100/100)
설명이 필요할까? 이거 들을 줄 모르면 브루탈은 듣지 마라.

깡통드럼 소리가 참으로 맛깔난다.. 이 앨범의 핵심은 깡깡거리는 깡통사운드에 있다!!
level   (85/100)
먼저 보컬에 충격을 받았고, 설마 가사가 있겠어하며 찾아봤는데 가사가 있다는것에 다시 충격을, 그리고 가사에 매칭시키며 들었을때 보컬이 저 가사를 외워서 부르고 있다는 느낌이 들어 더욱 충격을 받았다. 음악은 작살난다.
level   (80/100)
연주, 특히 드럼은 그야말로 작살난다. 하지만 보컬은 너무 듣기 힘들다.
level   (100/100)
갠적으로 카콥보다 얘네 곡이 더 임팩트 쎄다

쟁반에 머리잘린놈은 커버이미지로 사용되는것을 가문의 영광으로 알아라

그라인드 코어에 경계선에서 단순히 속도만 빠른게아니라 다 갈아버리면서 쫒아오는 느낌이다. 근데 보컬은 싫다

말할 필요가 있나 ?

엄지 두개 치켜세워줘도 모자란 브루탈 데스메탈의 교과서
level   (90/100)
공포스러운 브루탈.

확실히 때려부숴주곤 있으나 뭔가 텁텁하고 산만한 느낌이 든다

낄낄낄 역시 로드웜이야 자비없지
level   (95/100)
이 앨범을 안들어봤으면 데스메탈에 대해 이야기하지 말라!!유튜브에서 Flo의 Phobophile 드럼 리허설영상이 있는데.. 플레이도 플레이지만 어떻게 드럼라인을 저렇게 만들어냈는지 그저 놀라울 따름.
level   (90/100)
스네어 톤이 깨긴 하는데 나쁘지 않음
level   (95/100)
으와아.. 자비없이 달리고 조지고 부수고 난리도 아니다. 다만 여기서 느낀 의아한점은 가사가 있었냐는것? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
