Putrescence - Sledgehammer Holocaust
At 2007’s Bloodshedfest in Dynamo, Eindhoven, I got acquainted with the Canadian deathgrind band Putrescence, which was a nice experience if I remember correctly. This year they bring us their fourth record entitled Sledgehammer Holocaust. Let’s see if the record lives up to their live performance.
Although it is clear to hear that Putrescence play some great deathgrind in the vein of bands like Impaled, Brutal Truth, Kalibas and Kill The Client, the production of Sledgehammer Holocaust is damn crappy. Now I know grindcore bands don’t have all the money in the world, yet it sort of feels redundant to put out a record like this in an already flooded scene when you have nothing special to offer.
It seems as if this is not a good record, but then you’re wrong. The songs are all pretty decent and are written in an old school death metal and grindcore way. As I noticed with their live performance, drummer Dark Lord Skullbong is a very talented player which comes forward on this disc pretty well. It’s just too bad the mixing of this album is far from powerful. Verdict: it’s better to go and see these guys live than to listen to this album.
