NIBOOWIN: Breathing: LP

Satanic elevator music, perfectly inoffensive death metal. (Beautiful cover art though.) Oppressively gray and bleak, if that’s the kind of thing you’re into. I can’t say it’s sloppy, or ill-conceived, but also can’t act like I haven’t heard this entire record before in other forms. It’s uniform and confident, but the sonic equivalent of a summer action blockbuster. –Gwen Static (IFB, ifbrecords.com / Zegema Beach / Mosh Potatoes / React With Protest / Dingleberry)
