Postmortem - _Repulsion_
(Pavement Music, 1999)
by: Adrian Bromley (7.5 out of 10)
Okay, boys and gals! Time for some German death metal action. Time for Postmortem. Turn up the speakers and grab a beer! The veteran German metallers return to the scene with their latest death metal noise slab. How is it? Not bad. It rocks, it shreds. It's got all the makings of a reliable metal assault, something that releases by few bands -- especially veteran acts -- have (Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax take note), nowadays. The thing that works here for Postmortem is the band's overall understanding that their music follows a certain pattern and style, a set mood that would most definitely be ruined had the band opted to bring various styles into the fold. Bottom line: this is a metal record as a metal record should be. Just listen to cuts like "Beyond the Bounds" or "Dreadful Sins" and you'll get what I am talking about. Explosive vocals caged within harrowing riffs and bottom heavy rhythm sections make _Repulsion_ desirable, not to be shunned. Shun all the other fucking metal acts that forgot what metal is. Give Postmortem a chance.
