PUTRID OFFAL “Premature Necropsy”
I rarely go for compilations in metal music, but this time I really liked this piece of rotten flesh. Coming from Nord-Pas-de-Calais, France this entity was founded in 1991 which is a quite respectable amount of years being active.
To be honest, this is my first encounter with the band, (although I think I saw the logo somewhere in an old fanzine) and I must say that I’m impressed with the high quality and putrid death metal forged in chaotic guitar riffs, corrosive structures and ominous vocal lines. This is death metal with class, and every single track has the old spirit of rottenness and underground stench. Also, everything is tied with consistent doses of brutality, although the band sounds balanced and rotten without false pretentions. This tasty compilation includes almost all the material since early 90’s, like demos, split releases, etc., and it really worth every cent. It’s an excellent option if you are into 90’s death metal bands from the north of Europe. – Victor Varas
