Circle of Dead Children - _The Genocide Machine_
(Necropolis/Deathvomit, 2001)

You've got to be kidding me with this! There is an entire field packed -full- of brash sonic blast intensity a la Pig Destroyer, Discordance Axis, and Burnt by the Sun, but Circle of Dead Children rise like cream to the top. Showering their blast-beat effect with sounds suggestive of a Burial (_Enlightened With Pain_), this band can only be driven by depraved aggression to energize the listener in a way that only _The Genocide Machine_ can. Don't misunderstand me, CoDC crown songs with vastly heavy rhythms and violent powerful chops on occasion, but the majority of the remaining time is spent musically forging everything from chaos and nothing synchronously. For an example of that feat, I draw you attention to the longest track on _The Genocide Machine_, track eleven, entitled "Digestive Ceremony". This whole effort should be treated as a thesis, that is digested as a whole, entirely, for the kernels of unabridged forcefulness will do more for your energy level than a the thousand power bars! Worked within _The Genocide Machine_ is a thematic message of being apart of something destructively larger and ultimately committing to Earth's eventual supremacy. All that said, Circle of Dead Children is a phenomenal group. I strongly encourage you to discover them for yourselves.
