Review by UMUR
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars "Xenosapien" is the 5th full-length studio album by US experimental extreme metal act Cephalic Carnage. The album was released in May 2007 by Relapse Records.

The music on the album is experimental and technical death metal with deathcore/ metalcore and grindcore elements. Compared to the music style on the last album "Anomalies (2005)", the sound on "Xenosapien" is a little less eclectic or more focused if you will. Cephalic Carnage are still one crazy bunch though, and you´ll be exposed to more than one weird experimental part and style change on the album. The vocals are mostly delivered in various extreme metal vocal styles but there are clean vocals on the album too. Most notably in "G.lobal O.verhaul D.evice". The musicianship is really strong and besides some very technical drumming, you´ll hear breakneck speed dissonant fretboard runs and other challenging techniques. However weird and technical it gets, there´s always focus on memorability and a surprisingly melodic hook mentality on display too. Compared to the earlier releases by the band, "Xenosapien" is probably the most accessible album yet released by Cephalic Carnage. That doesn´t mean "Xenosapien" is an easy listen by any means though, so expect to be challenged.

The production is powerful and metallic sounding. A perfect sound for the music.

"Xenosapien" definitely marks the beginning of a new era for Cephalic Carnage with more focus on melody, memorability and accessibility. They may have lost just a slight bit of their original crazy sound in the process, but Cephalic Carnage still sound unmistakably like Cephalic Carnage. They have a unique and adventurous approach to writing music that you just don´t hear very often. At least not excecuted in such a convincing, professional and succesful way. A 4 star rating is warranted.

3 stars Each new Cephalic Carnage album, the band innovates themselves. With Xenosapien, Cephalic Carnage works directly into Technical Death Metal. As you can see, the lenght of the songs are longer than previous Cephalic Carnage. Sometimes the time and tempo changes are suddenly enough, from technical ... (read more)
