Necromanicide - _Hate Regime_
(Pony Canyon Music, 1998)
by: Alex Cantwell (6 out of 10)
This is my first exposure to Malaysian metal, and, from what I can tell, this CD is the product of many different styles of metal and hardcore from around the world falling upon the ears of five young men in Malaysia. Every song has a slightly different sound, the common thread through them being a modern thrash/metalcore kind of style. Whichever guitarist plays the leads seems to have quite a handle on soloing, which serves as a definite plus for the band. The riffs are interesting enough, and the production is great. The vocals are a strained shout, with the occasional low-end and high-end growl. The exception is the title track, which is sung by the spawn of Ernie, Kermit, and Cookie Monster, obviously the love child of the three (and a female donor?) resulting from a frisky night at Sesame Street. Think I'm joking? Try to listen to it and keep a straight face.
