One day I was deleting all the shit in my brutal death metal folder that was too boring to review. I eventually came upon Putridity. They're an Italian band that has so far released two full-length albums, their latest one being 2011's Degenerating Anthropophagical Euphoria. I expected it to suck, but I was pleased to discover that this album was motherfucking brutal.
Whereas most other Italian brutal death metal bands go the technical route, Putridity follows the bloody path of Brodequin. It's non-stop skull-crushing brutality. The drums are performed by Davide Billia. I recognize him from Xenomorphic Contamination. He goes by the nickname “Brutal Dave”. Quite an appropriate nickname, if you ask me. On this album, Davide channels Chad Walls by playing a relentless bombardment of raging blast beats that feature a pulverizing snare sound. He also plays a few mid-paced rhythms that feature jackhammer double bass. The bass is played by Alessandro Cravero. His performance is really prominent in the mix. He helps give the music a thick and meaty sound. He even performs a few short solos on occasion.
The vocals are performed by former Gorefuck and Corpsefucking Art member Paolo Chiti. He belts out these guttural growls that again remind me of the legendary Brodequin. He's an absolute beast. There are even times when he gurgles like a backed-up septic tank. This helps make the music sound even more brutal and vile. As for the guitars, they're performed by Andrea Aimone. He lets loose a raging torrent of dark shredding riffs as well as some diabolical chugs. He also throws in a bunch of crazy pinch harmonics that remind me of Cenotaph.
Although this album is incredibly short, it's incredibly brutal. Some people say this album is shit. I don't care what they think. I like it. If you're a fan of utter brutality in the vein of Brodequin, then be sure to listen to this album.
