420 - _Reality_
by: Paul Schwarz (2 out of 5)
I am getting pretty sick of receiving demos which I can so easily, and justifiably, file under the heading "typical uninteresting American death metal". The music here embraces the Cannibal Corpse school of death metal most thoroughly. 420 stray from the CC path somewhat, but never attain any of the recent and worthwhile heights of Dying Fetus, Angel Corpse or Pessimist (to name but a few) and essentially seem content to repeat the tried and tested musical formulas of the past, which, let's be honest, most of us don't need to hear any more of. It's not that 420 are the only ones, or the worst ones, but someone has to get it in the neck for not trying hard enough, and today it's them. If you can tolerate unnecessary, sub-standard rehash, you might enjoy this. I would rather listen to my old records.
