2 stars Cephalic Carnage pretty much hit the ground running with their debut album.

Forty-four minutes divided on twenty-eight tracks means pretty short songs. This was the old style of doing grindcore. The godfathers of grindcore; Napalm Death, had two seconds long songs. Cephalic Carnage is thankfully not that extreme. Instead, they concentrate on the contents. Which in their case means ultra-brutal grindcore with some elements of jazz inbetween. All this is spiced up with some techno and soundbytes from various movies. The grindcore here is also bordering to technical death metal. The music is ultra heavy and very extreme. It is not for everyone.

Being their debut album, the music is not that bad. There are some good ideas littered around here. But this album is not as good as their newer albums. It is a good attempt, but just that. Cephalic Carnage has arrived. Beware.

2 stars
