Morgue - _The Process to Define the Shape of Self-Loathing_
(Adipocere Records, 2003)
by: Xander Hoose (10 out of 10)
Damn. I was so fucking content with last year's December, Watchmaker and Minus releases, reinstating my confidence in the brutal death/grind scene, and wondering if it could get any better than that. Hell yes! Labeled 'deathcore', French outfit Morgue has managed to create a near-ultimate sonic onslaught that manages to approach a wall of pure noise yet still letting riffs and insane rhythms seep through. The most 'relaxed' parts of the album make Morgue sound like Cannibal Corpse, but everything else is so much more intense and over-the-top that you need a full fucking hour to recuperate from this stuff, wondering what the fuck just happened! Also, they deserve kudos for the aggro distorted vocals, reminding me a bit of December. The vocals on _TPtDtSoSL_ complement the music in the best way possible, giving the songs texture and filling the mid-frequency-range. I can't say much more about this album except that your not worthy of calling yourself 'metal' if you don't go out and buy it right now. Now I'm ready for Satan to take my soul...
