AMPUTATED – dissect molest ingest
(Sevared Records – 2014)
Have you ever met the wrong end of an avalanche? A moving mass of force and destruction going full speed at your direction, crushing and destroying everything in its path? Offering the same kind of comfort that an anvil flung at your face or a frontal collision with a moving train? Well, fortunately, I don’t know any of these feelings firsthand, but I imagine they are not so different from the sensations caused by some passages of “Dissect, Molest, Ingest!” A massive amount of weight, with guaranteed impact!
After a live album, AMPUTATED return with another dose of brutality, their third full length record in a career that now spans over 12 years and apparently continues to move forward with all the vigor! Get ready for ten tracks (11 if you count the intro ‘Body of Work’) dealing such issues as carnage, necrophilia, cannibalism, semen and abortion! I think this list covers more or less the discussed theme! Played at colliding speed, but focused on the enthusiastic groove, blasts and growl voices, any follower of this British band, or this gender they adopted, certainly will not be disappointed with this delivery! The fact that the band presents us a new formation here does not reflected in the final result, with everyone giving much evidence of their individual talent!
I do not intend to bore you with great masses of text, individualizing track by track, I just want to refer ‘Psychotropic Suicide’ and the title track ‘Molest Ingest Dissect’, that were holding me by the gonads at every turn, thanks to all of its savage delivery! ‘Toolbox abortionist’ is another good example of good violent entertainment, with high quality standards! Strong stuff!
