Holocausto Canibal - _Sublime Massacre Corporeo_
(So Die Music, 2002)
by: Pedro Azevedo (7 out of 10)
Portugal's self-proclaimed most extreme band return with their second full-length of "sick and twisted hyper speed brutality for all the family". Holocausto Canibal make sure their intents are clearly stated in advance through the album's gore-drenched front cover, and indeed the entire release is consistent in its darkly humourous and gory stance. _Sublime Massacre Corporeo_ opens with an orchestral(!) intro, followed by the sound of someone basically puking his guts out. The ensuing music, as you may already have guessed, features plenty of blastbeats, death growls, downtuned guitar riffs, frequent changes of pace and, of course, a multitude of introductory samples. The dirty, cavernous production provides a suitable vehicle for the onslaught in terms of both the decent punch it packs and its decidedly non-mainstream approach. The brutal death metal on offer is of very competent quality; the band is sufficiently tight and the songwriting relatively varied, even if it doesn't stray far from the tried and tested formulas of the genre (except for one particular track which seems to have been recorded in reverse). A few irrelevant humourous remixes close the album, but considering this is a 45 minute disc they hardly cause any harm. Overall, it's that old verdict again: fans of the genre, check this out; everyone else, stay away.
