Hard Drive Deadbeats: BRUTAL DEATH METAL

It's strange, I usually work for at least a day or two on a typical 'Genocide post; neurotically double-checking to make sure my diatribes and anecdotes are as witty as possible. These "deadbeat" entries, on the other hand, are fucking writing themselves! Wow, it's so much easier to just say "this sucks" as opposed to waxing on and on trying to convince the rest of the world how to spend 50 minutes with a personal favorite. Go figure. Anyway, the icing on the putrid cake today are Dick's Ablation and Morbopraxis. While I admittedly am a fan of the somewhat new (or at least newly defined) subgenre of "brutal" death metal, there's only so much pig grunting I can stand. Especially if it is recorded like shit. Dick's Ablation (from their split CD with comparable stinkers Funeral Rape) go through the motions with typical mania but it just seems really empty. Each song blends into another with barely a change in chord or tempo, an incessant "ree-ree-ree" gluing the whole obscene calamity together. For what it's worth, it's barely par. Just so many other bands doing it a lot better. To be perfectly honest, I don't really have that much of a problem with Morbopraxis's two-song effort. For a demo it's passable (the songs fade out in a weird way though) but it's just so positively generic I can't bring myself to continue to acknowledge its existence. Sorry dudes.
