Essentially a one-man death metal project hailing from my hometown, Horrified was largely handled by main man Dan Alderson, although he enlisted vocal talents from the more than capable Sam Butterfield for the release. What you get here on the Carcinogenic Feasting demo are three tracks of decidedly old school, putrid death metal. Thanks to the vocal performance and mixing this has a distinct Finnish vibe, which is always cool, although the riffs are straight out of the US school, with rollicking tremolo sections and chugging post thrash elements.

For this being largely DIY the production is well handled, keeping the sound in check with the old school acts this release worships. "Buried Among Putrid Flesh" comes across as the best example of the sound Horrified are aiming for here, boasting that old school stench and a collection of ripping riffs; this is the one you want to check out if interested. Overall a solid first release that should no doubt please fans of early Death, Gorguts, Autopsy or Pestilence. Promising to say the least!
