1 stars An official live album with bootleg quality.

Not many pennies was spent on this recording. The result is a very annoying drum sound which dominates the sound. The bass is too much in the front of the mix too and the guitars are still hiding somewhere in Rotterdam. They are more or less not on the album in any case. Just some solo guitars now and then. Or is that a frustrated female cat calling out for a partner ? The vocals is deep growls and nothing more. There is not much of any interesting music on this album. I suspect even fans of this band would give this album a miss. The music, when audible behind the wall of drums and bass, is the usual semi- brutal fast death metal fare. Nor the music or the band has no identity. There is nothing here which can be branded progressive. Just a wall of generic death metal. This is not even a collector's item. Avoid !
