Mörbid Carnage are a new band out of Hungary standing amongst the thousands of thrash bands that continue to pop up worldwide. Instead of falling into the midst with nothing to separate them from everyone trying to recapture the feeling of the Bay Area in the 80s, Mörbid Carnage play a much heavier, even brutal style, sometime indiscernible from death metal. This is as maniacal and bestial as thrash gets, bringing to mind some of the angriest and nastiest sounds produced by Demolition Hammer. That said, Mörbid Carnage are for the most part uninteresting and monotonous. Each song on the seven song debut album Night Assassins bleeds into one another, sounding undistinguished. Then, before you know it, the album is over, waking the listener from his boredom.
There's no doubt that Mörbid Carnage's intention is to create thrash that bludgeons its listener's ears. While they do that, the music becomes frustratingly boring. While there are a few riffs sprinkled throughout the album that get the read rolling like good thrash should, for the most part they are simply constructed and meshed together. The band seems more intent on brutality than quality, which is their greatest fault, hindering their sound into dull but forceful onslaught. Their punch is ferocious, but it needs a little added swagger to stay fresh.
