Anmod - Monstrosity Per Defectum
The result is their debut record entitled Monstrosity Per Defectum, released through Dutch label Deity Down Records. The first word that comes up in my mind after listening to the twelve 2-3 minutes long lasting tracks on Monstrosity Per Defectum is ‘excessive’, and I mean that in a very positive way. During the first few tracks the band seems to have a little difficulty to keep on with their own speed, but later on they truly manage to do so and it therefore sounds really skilled.
Anmod’s style can be defined as a mix of death metal with grind elements. The drums on Monstrosity Per Defectum are the most outstanding, because they are mixed louder than the guitars and bass - especially the noisy snaredrum is very prominent during the blastbeats that occur a lot. Anmod’s variation in speed creates a kind of chaotic vibe that is really brutal but at the same time also pretty enervating. People who know for e.g. Ulcerate know what I mean.
All in all a very intense and aggressive sounding record that I surely will give some more playtime.
