Reviews

EDUCATED SCUM - CORRUPT - SATANATH  
An instrumental that features mumbling sounds opens Corrupt. Is March Of The Discontented actually an instrumental? The song after it is thrashy hardcore. Stupid And Blind (Red Utopia Part I) is chaotic and seems to refer to seven decades of communism in the band's motherland. Cold Civil War shifts focus to wealth disparity. Musically, rough sounding hardcore is one good description. An interesting solo in this third song lifts the album. Downfall Of Morality tackles another social issue with thrashy riffs. Corruption, not for the first time, features a few verses in Russian. It is not too distinguishable from its predecessor. A Sepultura influence and grindcore sounds are detectable. No Way Out But Down (Extinction Mode) captures humanity's current state better than most with its title and 'A contagious infection called human ignorance' verse. Once again the added speed and solo add positives to Corrupt. Chameleon features more Eugene Tkachev screams and a few squeals too. The Birth Of Conflict/The Death Of Peace is by far the longest song at over six minutes. Plenty of thrashy riffs with a lot to say about humanity on this one but with an acoustic and slow end. Corrupt ends with Hidden Track I and Hidden Track II the first of which is a tongue in cheek 28 seconds and the second is blank until the last 30 seconds which is only (Russian) spoken words. This 30 minutes long full length is even shorter than it is listed! – Anna Tergel
