Why do this?

Previously, the only other disc I had heard by Holland's Last Days of Humanity was their second full-length, _Hymns of Indigestible Suppuration_, and I pretty much had my fill after that. The album was a good mix of death metal churns and grind rhythms -- like a fat, slobbering version of Impetigo -- and, I think, holds up well today; it's the overwrought vocal effects lacing every note that challenges my patience on tracks that don't venture past two minutes in length.

Well, since then they've gotten a new vocalist; and he sounds like a gigantic fucking frog; and the music, once composed of actual riffs, now mirrors the toneless, indolent performance of the vocals. This is literally noise (the press sheet prefers "huge sound"!). Adding to this disaster is the fact that although ten tracks are listed, almost all of these (the longest one clocks in at an epic 1:40) contain samples, making this less like an MCD and more like a goddamn movie trailer.

This is trivial music for boring lives.

Note: Last Days of Humanity have officially broken up, but are preparing songs for a final full-length album.
