Rated 5/5 (100%) (4 Votes)

Second disc from Costa Rican band Corpse Garden, who despite the grindish name are actually really into alchemy as a lyrical theme. I was expecting a Central American release to be more primitive, but actually this band is quite sharp and technical. It's easy for technical Death bands to get carried away, and that has happened here not so much with the songwriting, as in the extremely overproduced sound of the recording overall. The guitars are compressed down into a bludgeoning rhythmic sound, and the vocals are layered with effects so they sound like somebody belching down in a well. There are a lot of ?atmospheric' interludes on this, which mostly just consist of sound effects and they detract from the momentum of the disc, rather than adding to it. Overall this sounds too choppy, too fussy, and does not really create anything interesting.
