Pitbulls in the Nursery - _Impact_
by: Pedro Azevedo (3.5 out of 5)
Armed with the kind of name that will spark curiousity in some people as to their sound, Pitbulls in the Nursery aim for the throat with their first demo CD. However, _Impact_ doesn't quite make the kind of damage one might imagine from their name -- at least in the sense that the onslaught here is a lot less frantic. Pitbulls in the Nursery are essentially a groovy death metal band with a Chris Barnes doppelganger on vocals; rather than an all-out hyperblast death metal machine set to unleash bloody chaos. Their sound does have considerable "impact" though, with a production that emphasizes the low-end frequencies nicely and comes across as very adequate considering this is just a demo. PitN's approach is based on percussive riffs and rhythmic hooks rather than melodic leads, resulting in a very American-sounding concoction. Again as their name might suggest, the music is hardly very cerebral, but it does remain tight, reasonably involved and entertaining despite its lack of originality. Overall, apart from the unusual band name, _Impact_ is a very competent, albeit not extraordinary, death metal demo.
