3 stars "Oslo We Rot" is a double 7" EP split release featuring tracks by four different Oslo, Norway based death metal acts. The split was released through Unborn Productions in April 2010. "Oslo We Rot" is limited to 500 copies. The title of the release is of course a pun on the the title of the legendary debut album "Slowly We Rot (1989)" by Florida based death metal act Obituary.

The split features material by Lobotomized, Obliteration, Execration and Diskord. The Execration track and one of the Diskord tracks were later featured in re-recorded versions on the "Odes of the Occult (2011)" album by Execration and the "Dystopics (2012)" album by Diskord respectively. The rest of the tracks on the split are, as far as Ive been able to find out, exclusive to this release.

"Oslo We Rot" is a relatively varied split although all four acts are rooted in old school Scandinavian death metal. Lobotomized is probably the act that sticks out the most as they employ a heavy dose of hardcore punk in their filthy take on old school death metal. They play an original track titled "Piss on My Grave" and two cover tracks. One Mentors cover and one Autopsy cover. The absolutely caustic vocal delivery is a great asset to their energetic and punked death metal style. The Obliteration track is sligthly more standard death metal. Both the Execration and the Diskord tracks are more technical in nature but without sacrificing filthy old school death metal darkness.

The sound production on most tracks are murky, dark and filthy, which suits the music on the split well. Overall "Oslo We Rot" is quite an entertaining release to my ears and especially Lobotomized and Diskord stand out as very convincing at what they do. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

UMUR | 3/5 |
