Review by Alex on May 3, 2021.
Canadian death metal band Disembodiment will have you drooling for what they have to offer on their upcoming debut EP Mutated Chaos. Sitting somewhere between death metal, death/doom and grindcore but leaning more towards the former, Mutated Chaos reiterates the wonders that can be achieved when you fuse the genres together. Then you take that paintbrush and dip it in a clear production that does not discard whatever rawness can be heard in the music and you get a nasty but neatly presented swamp of death metal.
Mutated Chaos is a promising record if anything, it has the footing of carefully assembled recordings. Freight train chugs, sporadic devolutions into death/doom and grinding riff driven outbursts tower over the listener for the total runtime. All the tracks here leave you feeling satisfied with my personal favorite being 'Mephitic Gunk of Putrefied Limbs' that I feel could have been a bit longer. And as a note, the song writing here is quite the earworm with stronger compositions exhibited on 'Sickening Abominations Terrorizing' and 'Below the Mind of Morbidity' that find the key element to piece together the variety thus creating a wholesome effect to the songs and eventually record.
'Ceaseless Discharge' will be enough to convince you to stay for the full show that you won't be disappointed by. Bands the likes of Cerebral Rot and Vastum will shimmy across the ledges of your musical lenses during your stay while you listen to the sonic wreckage unfolding. And by the time you get to the end you'll want more and that's a guarantee. Just hope Disembodiment can follow-up Mutated Chaos with something even better. Meanwhile this should be enough to keep you up until the next effort.
