- Process of elimination
To make it short, my fellow-creatures, I could simply
say we're in front of a real masterpiece, one of those where one cannot
find any flaws. But it's time to get rid of my laziness and respect
my audience, by giving further details about this Aussie 4-member outfit's
ten songs: first you are immediately run over by awesome Bay Area thrash
and death groovy riffing, embellished by shitloads of different fiery
vocals, and evil refrains, perfectly arranged and therefore easily memory-impressed.
Moreover, I repute that the Skolnick-oriented (!!!) guitar-solos are
very interesting, and the 2 axemen do make the difference, they are
Abortus' foundation; just verify the title-track's arpeggio before that
irresistible distorted part, deign to be compared to the mighty early
80's Metallica, or thrilling "Worm",
in which there're plain examples of the skinbeater's good taste. I'm
fucksure that in the following "Dollar Sign Smile"
are a few riffs Cannibal Corpse would appreciate very much, but more
widely speaking it's fundamental to stress out the high amount of guitar
twists, variations, superb arrangements making these 35 minutes a pure
concentrate of sonic ecstasy. Nothing is static here, just listen to
the short track "God Vision"'s cybervocals, and then
skip to "Sadist-fy", dynamic and with a vaguely early-Maidenesque
beginning (but the English guys won't ask for the royalties, cos
there's no plagiarism, it's just a way to give a faint idea of what
expects the people who haven't the record yet).
