Carcariass - _Killing Process_
(Adipocere Records, 2002)
by: Pedro Azevedo (
How someone can actually choose to keep a name such as Carcariass when
a certain band with a similar name is such a legend in the metal world
is beyond me, but in any case the third album by this French band is
worth looking into. There is some rather technical melodic death metal
going on here, with four out of the nine tracks on offer remaining
instrumental. The album opens with a solo bass line, and soon enough
the first Death-like dissonant riff with an odd time signature comes
along, as does the first guitar solo. Even though there is a lot of
emphasis on the technical side of things, the music still remains
listenable -- not exactly a barrel of metallic fun or an onslaught of
raw energy, but still enjoyable in its own way. The production is
clear and gives every instrument some room. While not exactly brimming
with intensity and nowhere near an album like Death's _The Sound of
Perseverance_, _Killing Process_ is still a commendable effort that
should be of interest for fans of technical death metal.
