Review


And here I just got rid of the compilation album a month or so ago. It seems label problems lie at the root of the time it has taken for DM to get a new album out. They have now relocated to Coroner Records for their new full-length, and it is exactly what I expected. The band has apparently made a good move by getting rid of the atrocious "Speed" Strid, though his vocals are still all over this album like roaches on a candy bar. This is a pummeling workout of highly modern melodeath-styled metal. I had expected this band to go metalcore on us, but they have not. Alas, as that would spare me having to review this.

Disarmonia Mundi are tight, aggressive, and very good at what they do; I just don't like them at all, as they represent pretty much everything I detest in wrongheaded metal bands: pointless aggression rather than conviction or a point of view, heaviness in place of songwriting, and sickening levels of overproduction until the whole thing sounds like something shit out of a computer's asshole. This is metal that strives every moment to prove to you how Modern, Relevant, and Extreeeeeme it is, while missing the point of the exercise entirely. Music that says nothing at all except "Here I am, look at me!", the equivalent of a mongoloid child yammering for attention. Dreadful.
