Demonized - _Demonized_
(Osmose Productions, 2003)
by: Matthias Noll (4.5 out of 10)
Too many releases, too many bands doing exactly the same thing in a sub-standard fashion, too many labels releasing superfluous albums -- even if the guys in Demonized might be sincere and true metalheads, this is just another album that falls into this category. Why should anyone waste his money buying another second or third rate combination of Angelcorpse and Krisiun? I've heard this album five times and can't remember anything but the absence of triggers and myself being completely surprised that such extreme music can leave me totally unimpressed, lethargically sitting through it just for the sake of doing my duty before I can think about reviewing it. This is another extreme metal equivalent of music that usually gets played in elevators to provide some background noise until the ride is over in a couple of seconds. As dedicated to metal as the members of the band might be, it's painfully average stuff like this that truly kills the enjoyment of music and even makes me crave for a 100% crap release because at least there'd be something remarkable about it. I don't think that zero points is really the worst rating the CoC system allows; it's rather something between four and five.
