EXHUMATION – Bread Buttered On Both Sides ep (CD)
This female fronted melodic death metal band from St. Petersburg, Russia is just what the doctor with a twisted mindset ordered. Finally, a melodic death metal band that can play their instruments with 100% conviction, all the while dragging you deep into their chaotic abyss of tortured emotions. With a female singer/growler/screamer, Exhumation is sure to make you bang your head as hard as possible. The energy prevalent on “Bread Buttered On Both Sides” is very infectious, that you just want to raise your spike-laden fists in the air and show your dedication to a superior style of extreme metal.
There are four songs on this mini ep, clocking in at a good 20 minutes, but the way these guys play, it feels like a mere five minutes of music, it’s so well played. It is the band’s ability to play technical and catchy leads and riffs that complement their frontwoman Irina Bardina scratchy vocals. Exhumation is very good at holding your attention with superb songwriting, arrangements, and flawless execution of their music.
I enjoyed this ep a lot, but it is too short, and I cannot wait until they release a full length CD in the near future. Guys, please hurry up with the new material, because your talents speak volumes of such high quality heavy metal music.
