Desecration - _Inhuman_
(Copro, 2000)
by: Paul Schwarz (7 out of 10)
Desecration have moved up three points in my esteem in the year and a half since their posthumous _Murder in Mind_ album [CoC #32] and, though I don't see Desecration repeating such an exponential increase and scoring a 10 for their next album, one listen to _Inhuman_ will amply demonstrate why. Not only have Desecration tightened up their production, got a real drummer into the band to lay down some deadly precision percussion, and become a mite more sophisticated with their chosen riffs, they've even gone as far as including some classy little solos on a choice few tracks. However, whatever may be said about change or alteration, the main factor about Desecration is (and likely will always be) that they are essentially stalwarts. If you're looking for innovation, be it in the form of odd time signatures, flirtations with romanticism or even a bout of clean vocals or a truly melodic guitar passage, you'd best look elsewhere 'cause you won't find it here. What has changed about Desecration is that their stalwartism is now at least convincing. They bash out death metal in the traditional American style with all its trappings and trimmings, but they do it well, and that's definitely worth something.
