Initial Impressions: Disfigured: Amputated Gorewhore

I mentioned yesterday something about cartoonish violence in lyrical themes. Well Disfigured has them in spades. Just look at that cover art and the title of the album. There's also "Cadaver Meatballs", "Chainsaw Buttplug", and "Vehicular Vasectomy". None of which sounds like a very fun afternoon.

Musically, Disfigured is fairly basic brutal death with some slams thrown in for good measure. Think Pyrexia and Suffocation meets Devourment and you have a pretty good idea of what this sounds like. Just your average Texas-style death metal band really. The band does occasionally throw in some technical riff to keep things interesting.

The production is fairly impressive here. Everything sounds full and meaty, which with this style of metal is what you really want.

I like this album reasonably well. The sound bites can be a little annoying at times, particularly for "Drowning in Feces", but overall, it's a reasonably decent album. It is a quick and fun listen, even with the over-the-top violence.
