Deafness - _Oppressing the Silence_
(Independent, 1997)

I would sure like to find out what they put in the water over in Quebec because we could sure use some here in Toronto! Yet another cool band from Montreal, Deafness are well taught in the school of brutal death metal. I've always held the opinion that if you play this sort of music, that you do it the right way, a la good production and skilled musicianship. Well, Deafness have those qualities in spades, and most of the seven tracks here are worthy of repeated listens. My only complaint was that sometimes, the speed became monotonous, although admittedly those occurrences were rare. Taking influence from bands like Morbid Angel, Suffocation, and perhaps Incantation (in the vocal department), Deafness could have had a bright future. I say could, because I've recently heard that the band have broken up. Hopefully this'll turn out to be untrue, as I would have liked to hear a future recording. Those who like their death metal brutal should get in contact with the band and get a copy.
