Brutalities of Modern Domination

Rated 3.33/5 (66.67%) (6 Votes)

Gorezone play a stock brand of brutal death metal with hints of technical aspirations. The hyperspeed drumming makes them sound like The Berzerker at times, and sadly for Gorezone, the bands share a similar level of songwriting maturity as well. In tech death fashion, the riffs here are largely unmemorable. The songs have a sense of never going anywhere, at least anywhere very interesting. Gravity blasts lurk around every corner, riffs are possessed of little vitality and disappear from the mind of the listener almost as quickly as they surface. The album is generic, despite an attempt at being varied and dynamic, and worthy of being skipped, unless you have a thing for polished caveman brutality, as awkard on CD as in writing. Take Origin, extract most of the compositional talent, make the production, especially the bass drum, sound more "punchy," and you have Gorezone's latest album ready to ship. Parts of songs aren't bad, but any musical ideas with merit are ground into the dirt through repetition or lack of logical progression; where a song should be, there is instead a patched-together assortment of chugging riffs, grooving breakdowns, and lead guitar segments that fail to impress in most instances. If I ever get the desire to hear hyperblasting death metal that values brutality over engaging songwriting, I'll give Hate Eternal a call.

Germany's Gorezone do little to stand out in the field of brutal death metal. Instrumental competency does not save this release from its lack of focus.
