Thirtyone Dies - _Filthy Taste_
(Independent, 2003)
by: Pedro Azevedo (3.5 out of 10)
This disc spent longer than usual languishing in my review pile, and here's why: Thirtyone Dies have created a record that is neither terribly bad nor in any way terribly exciting. _Filthy Taste_ is one of those albums that can neither be totally shred to pieces nor reviewed with much enthusiasm; it is competently played, but deeply uninspired -- especially if you take into account the competition in today's extreme metal market. These Germans accurately describe their music as death/thrash with a hardcore influence, and the vocals alternate between a death metal growl and a screaming mode, accordingly. Unfortunately, while the hardcore influence is just annoying, none of this really gels into any worthwhile riffs or memorable hooks, and the whole thing would fail to impress me even as a demo given its lack of flair and inspiration.
