Exhumator - _Condescentions From the Dark Side_
by: Nuno Almeida (4 out of 5)
This band has quite a history. Formed in 1989 in Minsk, Belarus (then still a USSR republic), they managed to release three albums. Because of their very poor distribution, Exhumator crumbled to pieces, with various members leaving the band. In 1994, they recorded the _Sacrificial Bleeding_ demo, but before they had the chance to release it, their vocalist Vadim Akimov died. They released the demo anyway in 1995 but didn't print the lyrics to the title track; I suppose in consideration to Vadim. I have this demo and although the music is good, brutal death metal that can be compared to Cannibal Corpse and Deicide, the sound quality is very bad. That ruined the power and strength that the music might have had. Later that year, the band decided to move to Belgium, where they recorded this three track demo last year. The style is basically the same, with a little more growled vocals. The production, however, is better. On this demo, they also recorded the track "Sacrificial Bleeding". Although I'm not really a big fan of brutal death, I liked the demos and hope the band gets up on their feet again now that they are in a new country.
