Anmod - Monstrosity Per Defectum
Soon after writing a review about the Brazilian act Ophiolatry, I had to review yet another brutal trio from that country. Anmod was formed out of the ashes of Fornication, a five piece that released two albums and also did a three-month lasting tour through Europe in 2004. After that tour, three of its members decided to start a new band that would sound a lot heavier than the works of their previous band.

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.
