Flesh Autopsy – Promo CD 2012

The Indonesians have taken a real liking to Reverb Nation. I don't know why. All I know is that it's great because I can stream the albums right from the site instead of having to download them. Without further ado, here is Flesh Autopsy's Promo CD 2012, which contains just two songs, “Impresifatalis” and “Aggression Hecatomb of Pastor”.

Unlike most other Indonesian brutal death metal bands, the production on this promo is pretty high quality. All the instruments can be heard well and the guitars don't have this muddy texture. Not only is the production pristine, but so is their musicianship. The drums specialize in fast, mechanized blast beats like many bands in the technical death metal genre, and they make sure to throw in lots of fills to keep the music from getting tedious. The vocals aren't as deep as other brutal death metal bands, but they fit the frantic feel of the music quite well.

I think I said the same thing about Hatestroke, but I'll say it again: there must be something in the water in Indonesia, because the guitars here are absolutely killer. It's a perfect fusion of melody, brutality, and technical mastery. I swear, some of the licks remind me of Necrophagist and Spawn of Possession. I also hear some similarities to their compatriots, Orestes. The solos noodle with beauty and grace, and I think there might be some Swedish influence there as well. They're also from Bandung, the citadel of slam, so they make sure to honor their city by including a few sick slams in between the torrents of technical shredding.

My only problem is that this CD is too short. Then again, this is a promo, so that's to be expected. Other than that, this is an amazing display of Indonesian death metal supremacy. I hope they release a full-length soon.
