DISGORGE - PARALLELS OF INFINITE TORTURE - CRASH MUSIC
Parallels Of Infinite Torture is not for anyone looking for any degree of variety. This ten song release is as straightforward as they come these days, with almost 44 minutes of classic brutal death metal not unlike Incantation and Suffocation and complete with some of the same vocals heard on many of the genre’s biggest and best bands. The production is also similar to many of the same releases in that sometimes it seems that the drums and vocals are recorded at different levels where they tend to drown the guitars and bass. Titles like Revealed In Obscurity, Descending Upon Convulsive Devourment and Ominous Signs Of Ungodly Ruin are not a misrepresentation either as this is very much a true '90s-style death metal release. - Anna Tergel
