Haemorrhage - _Loathesongs_
(Morbid, 2000)
by: Paul Schwarz (4 out of 10)
The pure simplicity of many of the minute long death grinders covered herein, and the fact that they differ little from their originals even in playing style, essentially leaves Haemorrhage's covers sounding flat and pointless. The songs are never as good, and never better, just very much the same as the originals. So why bother with them? Do you need a worse version of a good (or sometimes average...) grindcore/death tune? I doubt it. Elsewhere, the band attempt to cover Suicidal Tendencies (revealing that they lack considerably in knee-length socks and hardcore attitude) and UFO (to odd but uninteresting effect). Entombed and Carcass are the most well-known names from Haemorrhage's musical turf covered here and the more or less average tracks chosen are executed in a workmanlike manner, exemplifying their inherent pointlessness while displaying that Haemorrhage have none of the flair of their predecessors. All round, a well played waste of time and money, and it's an MCD.
