Summertime Daisies - _Gathering of Vermin_
by: Alain M. Gaudrault (4 out of 5)
Don't be fooled by their name. This demo is hardly akin to a stroll in a field of wild flowers. This is brutal death, excellently delivered and well written. This is conceived with the mosh pit fans in mind, featuring plenty of nasty bits with which to skank about the floor, while also providing blast beats to cut loose and go ballistic. The production is average, and the instruments can all be heard, but I find the guitars a bit too thin for my taste. Suffocation fans take heed, as the Daisies take that genre and massage is just enough, adding a good dose of memorable riffs, to set them apart from the sea of clones. These guys really need to be seen live, as I've had the pleasure of doing twice, most recently on their opening slot for Deicide on March 25th. The demo is a worthwhile purchase, albeit short, and I quite look forward to more recorded material, particularly since this tape was produced over a year ago. Needless to say, I'll be reviewing any further material of theirs right here, so keep your eyes peeled in future issues. A band to be reckoned with indeed.
