Excisions of Exorcisms

Rated 3.82/5 (76.36%) (11 Votes)

Some fast-paced Florida-style old school Death Metal here, which is pretty much what one can expect from Diabolic. At just over half an hour this is "short and sweet", though the outro is completely useless, sounding like the "hey! Did you guys hear this?" kind of sound that you hear in some horror movies – disposable. Overall the album is fast-paced and heavy and busy as fuck, enough to fill your eardrums for a week. Pretty much standard fast USDM with no surprises, though not all that tightly played, which I found makes this more interesting, less clinical than what we're used to hear. "False Belief" is quite different from the rest of the album, pretty slow-paced compared to the speedy onslaught and a well-placed change of pace that gives the listener a little breather before going full speed again. The vocals are an abrasive-sounding growl that's a nice change for the more guttural style normally associated with the genre. It's not the most original stuff out there, but you still get your ass kicked for 30+ minutes.
