Parricide - _A Future Of Suffering_
by: Adrian Bromley (3 out of 5)
Rhode Island's Parricide, a one-man project led by guitarist/vocalist Bob Cardente, is quite the heavy dose of sickness, anger, and brutality all packed into one on this EP. With only four songs, the message shoved down our throats happens at such a speed (from the get go of first track "Living In Fear") that we have little time to recover before we are force-fed the anger and intensity once again ("A Future of Suffering" and "Inhuman Condition"). While Cardente is in the process of using/searching for musicians to fill the open slots in the band, Cardente skillfully and successfully assembled this impressive onslaught of death/thrash metal all on his own, manning the vocals, guitar, bass, and drum machine, though he was helped with guitar duties by Ritual Sacrifice guitar shredder Bill Pincins. Influences and sounds similar to Metallica, Slayer, Death, Cannibal Corpse, and many others are present and that makes this music seem to flow with some ambience and creativity instead of displaying monotonous growls, screams, and standard riffs within the charges of rage and speed. A strong effort that with some slicker production and a solid and experienced line-up should be able to punch out walls and go for the jugular vein (something this band wouldn't think twice about) next time.
