Lobotomy - _Holy Shit_
(No Fashion, 2000)
by: Aaron McKay (7 out of 10)
Yea, I do believe this one has been out awhile. The band is apparently a bit behind on their release schedule and the new one, I understand, is to hit the stores anytime soon as Lobotomy was aiming for a May/June 2001 date. Until then, we have the five song EP _Holy Shit_; a pleasurable ride through some of Stockholm, Sweden's finest death/thrash experience. I won't drag this out, since those of you Lobotomy fans probably have this nugget, but for those of you who are new to the affair, this five piece has something to offer. Vocals drudged from the bowels of detestation, sounding at times like Charlie Silva from Dreams of Damnation. This style, surrounded in a heavily choppy, manicured metal sound, becomes most alluring. Recorded at Sunlight Studios, Lobotomy's sound is nowhere near unique, but it captured this writer's attention amidst the piles of CDs left to review. The band says, "Don't believe the hype, believe in Lobotomy". You don't even need half your brain to take those words to heart.
