3 stars Images of Despair is the debut full-length studio album by progressive thrash/ death metal act Coprofago. The band come from as exotic a place as Chile. The album was independently released in November 1999 but saw a re-issue in 2002 with additional bonus tracks.

The music on Images of Despair is highly technical and progressive thrash/ death metal. These guys are really good musicians. The vocals on the album is a mix of brutal growls and some really effective aggressive type vocals. The latter type is the most prominent on the album. The songs are technical and quite adventurous, with many different sections including a couple of jazzy ones. You´ll get both blast beats, fast thrashy riffing and some heavy mid-paced sections. Most songs contain all styles.

The production drags the album down a bit IMO. The music could have gained in strength had the production been a bit more powerful and clean. This is the kind of music that would have sounded great with a Colin Richardson or Andy Sneap production.

Mostly because of the production, Images of Despair isn´t a perfect album. But it´s still a very good album despite that minor flaw and considering that it´s a debut album Images of Despair is actually quite impressive and fully deserves a 3.5 star rating.

UMUR | 3/5 |
