VICTIMS OF CONTAGION - LAMENTATIONS OF THE FLESH BOUND - SATANATH  
Three guitarists and other guest guitarists play on this debut full-length that is only six songs, but 38 minutes, long. As with the album title The Promethean Flame is a very apt title for a band with longer than average songs. The listener may suspect some progressive element within Lamentations OF The Flesh Bound. The song features a short piano intro and it is followed by Chris Edison's screams and growls and music somewhat reminiscent of Sadist's style. Mid-paced metal interspersed with brief faster sections and solos. Of Species Departed features Faceless' Michael Keene on lead guitar. The song has varying elements but they do not fragment the song too much. The solos are a highlight as too are when the song picks up the pace. The Human Severance feels a bit more like a standard death metal song. Corporeal Punishment features Philippe Tougas (First Fragment, Funebrarum, etc.) on lead guitars. It is a faster song with a faster solo and the highlight of Lamentations Of The Flesh Bound. Sisyphus (The Virtue Of Suicide) is almost a counter point to the song before it. In terms of pace at least, it is heavy and sometimes slow. Autophagous Horizons is a 12-minutes long closer and it has time to move around in a long instrumental section and showcase technical and even progressive slower and faster sounds while retaining a 90s death metal sound aided. All aided by Edison's traditional death metal vocal style it is an interesting song that avoids the pitfalls of long for the sake of cramming everything in songs. – Anna Tergel
