craziest Aussies are back with their 5th album after 2 years and nothing
has changed as yet.
"Inner Spiritual" is a classic metal intro followed
by "Homicidal Suicide", containing an obsessive refrain
and nice riffs. "Bleeding Insanity" and "Arkhon
the Grave Robber" are decidedly guitar-ruled, even if the bass
is more defined on this CD; both of these songs include great slowings
in the purest sign of doom, while "Mental Derailment"
and "Battered to Buggery" are enriched by bestial screams
and even barkings. The former is shot fast from beginning to end, the
latter best represents the Australian 4-piece's style, made out of thrash,
black and punk elements, abruptly interrupted by rapid bass scales.
"The Electric Chair" is just an intermezzo of noises
and vocals of the executioner and the retributed man. "Fukking
Death Mental" unfortunately repeats what was already done before,
while "Shit" is a bit better cos it includes a twin
guitar riff. "Outer Spiritual" closes in line with
the intro and there's also a hidden track made with vocals from a sort
of spitel small entity, like a Poltergeist.
One thing is being faithful to one's style through the years as a sign
of coherence, another is being so repetitive record after record and
even within the same record. That's the biggest limit Sadistik Exekution
still have to surmount, but I'm afraid if they go on like this, they'll
do it only with their 10th CD!
