EDITORS’ NOTES

Hard to believe that it's been over a decade since Denver eardrum destroyers Cephalic Carnage first hit the scene with their debut album Conforming To Abnormality. Now on album number six, they're still as rugged as ever, churning out their one-of-a-kind blend of technically tight, hyper-harsh grindcore-meets-death metal, served with a healthy dose of humor and sprinkled with completely unexpected musical change-ups, be it through subtle sound effects, jazzy strum breakdowns, or a surprise sax appearance. Though this is their first release without guitarist Zac Joe, they don't seem to miss him, and while it may not be quite as over-the-top as their much-loved Xenosapien, it will undoubtedly satisfy open-minded metalheads looking for some next-level mayhem. Standout tracks include "The Incorrigable Flame" and "Dimensional Modulation Transmography."

Supreme brutality...

Loved Xenosapien, though I needed to be in the mood for it, but this album has surpassed that, and definitely exceeded my expectations. Everything (metal) you could possibly want on here, some awesome and clean grindcore joints, and straight up death metal, but what's really tickling my fancy are the slower, heavier, doomier parts, which are very well done. Guest vocals sound great too. Definitely worth buying.

This Talent is going somewhere

By far my favorite album by Cephalic Carnage. I knew when I first heard these guys, they were definitely going somewhere with that kind of talent.
