Commit Suicide - _Human Larvae (Earthly Cleansing)_
(Willowtip, 2002)
by: Adrian Bromley (9 out of 10)
I have played Commit Suicide's album _Human Larvae (Earthly Cleansing)_ quite a lot lately. And it wasn't because it is just 28-plus minutes long and I can get more spins in a day than the average album. So why so many spins? Because it is so damn good! The new offering by this Pittsburgh death/grind quintet is truly a work of art, a blasting flow of reckless intensity on one end and a technical grinding assault at the other end of things. Heavy-set vocals come down on the listener with the might of a stream roller, while the ferocious guitars wail, the frightfully potent rhythm section shakes the foundations and the powerhouse drumming sends the music into a chaotic tizzy. Fast as lightning, I tell ya! Grinding numbers like "Ablation", "When Nothing Exists", "Hollow" and "Epiphany" will send shocks of enjoyment to fans of great new heavy hitters like Circle of Dead Children and Backstabbers Inc. and classic grind outfits like Napalm Death and Haemorrhage. Commit Suicide are way ahead of the pack with this latest offering and anyone who says otherwise after hearing this record needs to off themselves. Truly devastating stuff here!
