Absurd Reality / Flagging Water
Review by JD on August 20, 2011.
I was not quite sure of what to expect when this band landed on my desk from this Hungarian Death Metal band Unfit Ass. In looking into the band, it seemed that they broke up sometime around late 1996 or early 1997, but thankfully they have issued this compilation of tow of their album.
This four piece outfit played old school Death Metal with injections of other metal like Grindcore and even some Black Metal as well. Combining harsh melodies with this attack of heaviness - these guys assault your senses with impunity. Far from being original, they still hold a little bit of an original angle that makes this album something more than the average Death Metal shit that is out there.
With fourteen tracks handed to us so we can have the pleasure of getting to know them, Unfit Ass. shows that they were a amazing young band that was full of fire and passion as it powers through the speakers. Songs like the riff explosion of 'Grey Souls' not to mention the impressive 'Hopeless' just solidify that this band can play, but also reminds us that they are not together...a good/bad sort of thing.
With the right guidance from a proper management firm that specializes in Extreme Metal along with getting the backing of a good label, Unfit Ass could have been there in the realm of fellow Death Metallers Carcass or even the mighty Obituary. I hope that the members are out and still making metal music and if they are not, it would be a waste... these guys did it right.
