French Death Metal torpedo, Hysteria, hits hard with their third studio album recording, titled Flesh, Humiliation and Irreligious Deviance, playing a technical, show-no-mercy type of Death Metal that stays true to form. Ripping, blackened, razor-sharp and meaty riffs come from every possible direction on your neck, slitting your skin mercilessly until you have bled to death in all of your pathetic misery. Eh, I guess you get the point. Sylvain Ostengo, on vocals and guitar, sounds deceptively like Mr. Benton, sort of giving Hysteria an extra dose of credibility as a seriously taken and mean sounding French Death Metal force. Although Hysteria seem to be really home with some storming, all-pulverizing and fast-paced Death Metal, they also do know when to slow down a bit and start painting the horizon with more sinister and heavier atmospheres, so to speak. It's easy to see fans of Behemoth, Krisiun, Vital Remains, Deicide and the like, falling in love with this band, no doubt. 

Flesh, Humiliation and Irreligious Deviance was a pleasant surprise from this French Death Metal combo. I guess I should go back to their past and start digging the ground a bit more, just to see whether their two other albums – Haunted by Words of Gods (2006) and When Believers Preach Their Hangman's Dogma (2009) – hold as much true kickass value as their latest opus.
