Dismember features crushing death metal punctuated by extended riffing and some really good guitar solos. This is a little heavier and darker than Dismember's last CD, but you'll hear enough melody and groove to temper the thundering barrage. Even though Dismember can get very brutal, they are adept at putting in interesting elements and arrangements into their songwriting.
Matti Karki is an excellent vocalist. His powerful growls have a lot of emotion, but he also changes up his delivery so everything doesn't sound the same. He's also reasonably understandable for a death metal vocalist. Dismember is another rock solid effort from an old school death metal band that rarely disappoints.
