Conceived In Sewage”


Devourment - Conceived in Sewage

Brutal Death Metal or Goregrind? Call it what you like but Devourment are sick mutha fuckas. Who else can conjure the image of a being impregnated in shit? Fucked By Rats? It appears they have a real positive take on the reproductive process. Does the music hold up to the brutality? Shit yes. These are solid heavy grinds. Guitars and vocals united in constant rhythms with drums that beat into your skull. Originally when I heard this album months back my favorite song was Fifty Ton War Machine. Now I think it is Heaving Acid. Personally I don’t need a singer to have range if they don’t need it. What is the point to show off it doesn’t fit. If you look at the cover of the album, the music conveys that level of sick depravity. While I still feel like the songs could use a little something extra Devourment delivers the goods. These Texan’s have continued to evolve since Unleashing The Carnivore.

“Molesting the Decapitated”
1999, United Guttural

Devourment - Molesting the Decapitated

“Molesting the Decapitated” can only be described as a rancorous barrage of furiously crushing morbidity. The photo on the front of the CD is enough to portray the aftermath of a fiery onslaught of ill-blooded rage coupled with the perverted precision of a neurosurgeon. This release is chock full of blasting riffs and insane time signatures with a plentiful boast of pounding breaks quite possibly rivaling that of Suffocation’s legendary and unarguably genre-inspiring release “Effigy of the Forgotten”(a task I, personally, thought could never be accomplished). The vocals are a human anomaly all their own. Vocalist Ruben “Gore Gurgle” Rosas belches the lowest, sickest, most emetic vocals I have ever heard in my many years as a metal fan. The smoothness of the riffing along with the fast and frenzied drumming on this album is incredible. In its entirety, “Molesting the Decapitated” is, in my humble opinion, the most devastating death metal release of 1999, period. Everything about this CD is perfect. “Do you still feel like killing people? Yes.”
