Altar of Disembowelment

Rated 3.63/5 (72.5%) (8 Votes)

Avulsed get me every time. Somehow I always forget that they're not the unlistenable garbage that some of their album titles may lead you to believe. I've been listening to this EP for a while now and can't get tired of it. This is well in line with their previous material – diverse, heavy, tight Death Metal with listenable guttural vocals. Brutal when need be, Avulsed know exactly when to slow down and even get a little melodic. Some passages are 80s-style machine-gunning Thrash that take me back to the good old days – it never lasts long, but it's certainly noticeable. The last song is a cover of Black Sabbath's "Neon Nights." You read that right. It's a little weird hearing it with a Death Metal sauce but damn, it does kick some ass. This one's a keeper.
