On a label named "Forever Underground", you can be sure that the bands won't sound anything like Nightwish. :) Reprobation is a brutal death metal band with lyrical content that's very much into gore - not that I could figure that out from the vocals, which are essentially incomprehensible and of the "I partied too much before recording the vocals and I started puking during recording and we didn't have enough studio time to re-record, so there" variety - in other words, very deep, guttural vocals, sometimes sounding like a bunch of disgusting burps. Not my thing, but there are some people out there who love this type of vocals, and I'm sure they'll be pleased by the vocal work on this album. :)

Musically this is mostly fast-paced brutal death, kind of a mix of influences from Incantation and Morbid Angel, while the slower parts give more of an Immolation feel. I didn't find anything that really caught my attention, however - it's well-played, but not outstanding, pretty much average to slightly above average stuff for the most part. There are a few occasional riffs that stand out a bit, but not long enough to really distinguish this from your usual death metal album. There's a couple of short spoken "sketches" between some of the songs, the one with the visit from a couple of Jehovah Witnesses is pretty funny.

If you're looking for something completely different, you'll have to look elsewhere. But if you're looking for a good death metal album that's high on gore and blasphemous content (just don't lose that booklet!), this is for you.
