BIOPSY – Fractals Of Derangement EP (CD)
Mumbai, India’s Biopsy bring to mind the good old days of guttural death metal, when Suffocation caused a stir with “Effigy Of The Forgotten”, it was the start of a new era in brutal death metal.
Biopsy, has their own style and sound, but some Suffocation influences do creep into their brutish death metal. However, Biopsy is more focused on delivering quality guttural death metal all the while maintaining their own style and sound. They may not be the most unique band on the earth, but their sheer wickedness and musical insanity is sick enough to cause a stir within the Asian death metal scene.
The five songs found here, range from ultra fast to groove driven damnation in hell, with the vocals being at the forefront, the music also is equally devastating. “Fractals Of Derangement” is surely a deranged-sounding ep in its own right, and makes for a torturous listening experience.
I do respect vocalist Shomeresh Shetty for making a great effort at belching out hideous, monster-like vocals, which is not easy to do, when you have to do it for several songs.
You just cannot go wrong with such gory styled lyrics in the form of: “Hemolytic Crisis”, “Anatomical Reconstruction” (song title reminds of early Aborted) and “Surgical Symmetry”.
Check these guys out and watch your life fade into the void as you listen to the tasteless offerings found on “Fractals Of Derangement”. [Transcending Obscurity] Sarjoo Devani
