Anno Universum


This is a very techy Death Metal album very much in the Origin/Decrepit Birth mode, and while parts of it I like really well, I have a major problem with the vocals. The riffs on this thing are chunky, tight, and crunchy as hell, and when this band just rips into it I love the shit out of it. But the vocals on here are awful. Vocalist Kenneth Parker is of the ‘puking on the mike' school of vocal delivery, and there are so many effects and multitracks on his voice it's not even funny. It sounds like someone is shitting in my ear when he comes on and it ruins the entire album for me. This is a strong band with real chops, a lot of energy, and a one big glaring drawback that I hope gets fixed.
