Mortician - _Zombie Apocalypse_
by: Adam Wasylyk (
The release of _Zombie Apocalypse_ has proved one thing to me: there are still yahoos out there who buy this shit and enable Mortician to stay on Relapse. Who the fuck is still interested in this band? I got some minute pleasure out of _Mortal Massacre_, but that was back in '94!! And with the releases of _House by the Cemetary_ and _Hacked up for Barbeque_, one tends to ask him or herself 'How can a band get away with making the same record over and over again?' On this _Zombie Apocalypse_ MCD there is hardly any distinction between tracks, the drum machine is fucking lame, the sound clips grow old... must I go on? It's surprising to me that two bands like Agoraphobic Nosebleed (reviewed this issue) and Mortician can share a love for intensity and all-out brutality, but the intelligence level be miles apart. Includes covers of Slaughter and Repulsion, but after hearing them you wouldn't know it. I've heard some people try to say that the haunting atmosphere that Mortician create is what makes this band so cool. But then again these people are of minimal intelligence anyway. I've wasted enough time writing about this.
