Internal Bleeding - _Alien Breed (1991-2001)_
(Olympic, 2001)
by: Aaron McKay (8.5 out of 10)
In anticipation of their upcoming release, _Hateful_, due out this year, Internal Bleeding decided to remind us what it is like to beat about the head and chest with pummeling rhythm after pummeling rhythm. Infectious riffs plague this compilation enough to make Dying Fetus sit up and take notice. Crunchy and overwhelmingly fat, tight playing is an extraordinary large feather in Internal Bleeding's, er... skull cap. (?) All fourteen tracks on this release have elements of the riff-heavy "Murky Waters" mosh segment from Testament's _Demonic_ album, including the new song, "Alien Breed". Having only known IB since their second effort, _The Extinction of Benevolence_, I can hear consistency and progression all through _Alien Breed (1991 - 2001)_. In my estimation, with bands like Fleshgrind and Macabre, Olympic Records is the natural home for Internal Bleeding. If you were unfamiliar with this New York five-piece before, I'd probably get to know 'em a bit. Chances are you'll be hearing a lot about them really soon.
