SYSTRAL: Black Smoker: CD

Jul 28, 2009

Now that’s what I’m talking about. Ugly as shit, Earache Records styled metal that reminds me of Entombed, Napalm Death, and Carcass. On top of ugly, the music is fierce. I love that cookie monster vocal shit. The lyrics are completely unintelligible. Can’t be offended if I don’t understand what the hell is being sung. But they sure do sound mean. The guitar riffs are heavy and the drums are bashed to the tenth degree. Even though I can’t listen to this style of music on a regular basis, I do grit my teeth and snarl every time I do pull this stuff out. Maybe I will grow my hair long again?
