Psychotogen - _Perverse and Unnatural Practices_
(Bring Out Your Dead, 2001)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
If the album's 42 second intro titled "Venom in the Voice" isn't enough to get you all riled up and thirsty for a brutal death metal assault, then you won't have any interest in Psychotogen. Luckily for the band, after the opening number I was ready to let the fists fly as I went into a death metal rampage. Tight, brutal and totally drenched into death metal vibes, the music of this Baltimore-based act flies out of the starting gate with deep vocal growls, shredding guitar riffs and a punishing drum blast that could cripple anyone getting too close. Technical on numerous levels, the playing here is pretty rock solid; occasionally the band will slow things down and hang for a few seconds before launching into another death metal onslaught. At just over 32 minutes, Psychotogen does the right thing by playing fast and furious (i.e. "In the Dust of Your Own Nothingness", "Tears at the Flesh" and "Chaingod") and getting the fuck out of there. They make no apologies for their brutality, they just keep moving onto the next set of victims.
