Ah, good old fashioned death metal. It goes without saying that this style has been done to death (pun intended), but given some good riffs and musicianship it's normally fun. These days I think it's nice to say that with bands performing this style, it's becoming commonplace to mix death metal with another style, and while most paths for bog standard DM have been well trodden, the old adage "if it's not broken, don't fix it" springs to mind. Of course it needs to be played well, and fortunately New York's Mutant Supremacy does exactly that.
This is like I said, good old fashioned death metal, no gimmicks, nothing too gory, just good old face-ripping, headbanging fun. The production is nice and clear, with a mighty guitar tone that will cave your skull, the drums sound good too, the blasting sounds just right and really crushes, as does the double bass. The guitar work is standard for death metal, encompassing both sides of the coin, you have the slower groove-style riffs that could prove quite vicious in the live environment, and you have the wild untamed riffs common of acts such as Morbid Angel, Incantation, or Autopsy. Infinite Suffering really boasts it all as far as old school death metal goes, and I'm pleased to say that it's headbang city throughout. Death metal fans really can't go wrong here; this is the next best thing to borrowing the Nocturnus time machine and travelling back to 1991. Hell, this smokes a few of the supposed classics from the glory days. Recommended.
