'Terrorize, Brutalize, Sodomize' does exactly what its name suggests (well, apart from sodomizing the listener, I don't think it'd shift many units if that were the case). Anyhow, I've followed Vomitory's career from 'Redemption' onwards, and this album stands as further evidence that they clearly know how to make a great death metal album (by packing it full of brutally fast songs, naturally).
Incorporating a whirlwind of blastbeats, riffs the size of continents, subsonic rumbling bass and a strong throat ripping vocal performance, I'd rate Vomitory as one of the most consistent Death metal acts to hail from Sweden at present. Seemingly trimming the fat from their last album into a more streamlined beast here, the album as a whole never outstays its welcome with a manageable 'single-sitting' runtime, with each individual song speeding from your subwoofers like venom-tipped bullets. The greatest thing about Vomitory is the fact that they manage to give each track its own identity, which is recognized within the first few listens, such is the immediacy of their simplistic-yet-effective songwriting abilities. They even manage to squeeze in a little melody here and there, with 'March into Oblivion' in particular having a nice Slayer-esque introduction, and great lead licks ebbing and flowing forth at its mid-way point.
This is one album that certainly has an old-school vibe to it, not to mention the balls and teeth to carry the intensity and ferocity through ten tracks. A nasty, yet satisfying death metal experience captured in plastic for your listening pleasure.
