Guest review by

Let us dig over a decade ago through the pile of bones and rotten flesh in order to find the remains of scattered brain and inhale the vile fumes of an all so punishing violent genre that is brutal death metal. Hidden deep beneath the surface of putrefied human bodies, dry blood and guts we will find a carcass whose lacerations are still gushing out blood, whose heart is still beating at a worrying pace and whose face holds the most sickening of expressions. However, what is most noticeable about this living figure and whatever humanity it might still have, is that in the palm of his left hand, lays a copy of Cryptopsy's debut album Blasphemy Made Flesh. Only now can we comprehend.

  Mutant Christ is an amazing song.

Rating: 8 A solid yet brutal debut from Cryptopsy. The vocals, although very incomprehensible almost sound inhuman on songs such as 'Defenestration', 'Abigor' and 'Graveyard (Cryptopsy)', and the instrumentation here is pretty top notch. The drum work really hits hard on every song and the bass is well-executed, keeping up with everything else. Some of the solos here are awesome too, especially on 'Open face surgery' and 'Mutant christ'.

  Doesn´t sound very "old school" and drums are too loud mix,but pretty good album.
