Horrified Reviews

Reviewer :  level 15   (80/100)
Date : 
이미 Carcass가 첫 Goregrind 앨범을 선사하기 전 Gore적이고 좀비적인 요소를 넣어 Gore틱한 Grindcore 밴드가 존재했었다. 시기가 엇 비슷하지만 결성일은 Repulsion이 빨랐고 두 밴드는 그렇게 동시대에 비슷하면서도 다른 음악을 들려줬다.

이 앨범에서 들려주는 음악은 Carcass보단 덜 Death Metal스러우면서 Grindcore적인 사운드 위에 약간의 Gore를 가미한 사운드다. 거의 Grindcore에 가깝지만 Grindcore 태동기 때 이미 Grindcore와 Goregrind를 동시에 선사한 밴드나 마찬가지로 업적만 해도 충분히 Grindcore 역사에 거론될 만한 밴드이다.

Horrified Comments

level 6   (90/100)
고어그라인드 명반
level 10   (90/100)
제법 들을만 하다
level 10   (95/100)
autopsy를 2배속한거같은 음악. 물론 좋다는 의미
level 9   (90/100)
Great work, somewhere on the verge between Death Metal and Grindcore. A monumental album regarding the genre of Grindcore.
level 17   (75/100)
úderné rýchle piesne, ktoré sú však príliš jednotvárne, hudba je na pomedzí death/grind/punk, spev je skôr thrash metalový
level   (80/100)
오리지날 자켓은 따로 있는데 .. 그라인드 코어의 전설적인 앨범이지만 조악한 음질덕에 음악을 제대로 캐취해서 듣기가 어려운 치명적인 단점을 가지고 있다.
level 16   (90/100)
꽤 개성넘치는 음악을 들려준다. 그라인드 쪽에선 중요한 앨범이다
level 11   (80/100)
그라인드 코어의 시초라고 하지만 앨범이 귀에 안맞는 건 어쩔 수 없다.
level 6   (90/100)
쓰레쉬 메탈 느낌이 강한 올드 스쿨 그라인드코어/고어그라인드다. 가사적으로만 고어그라인드지만 카르카스에도 큰 영향을 미친 걸로 알고 있다.
level   (95/100)
그라인드코어의 원조!
level 5   (85/100)
원조격 그라인드코어! 올드스쿨!
