MetalBite Review by Adam on 10/16/2004
Optimistic would be the best way to describe my state of mind as I began to spin Fleshcrawl's latest album Made of Flesh. I was almost certain that I was about to hear some exciting top rate death metal. Slowly, however, my optimism turned to tolerance and ultimately to boredom as Made of Flesh is just another one of your average run of the mill death metal releases.

Fleshcrawl's main problem lies within their songwriting. There just isn't anything that inspiring or entertaining about these songs at all. I can easily see myself headbanging to this at a show, but as far as giving Made of Flesh repeated listens, their music doesn't have that kind of staying power. As competent musicians as Fleshcrawl may be, it simply does not make up for the fact that this album is a bore.

I am hesitant to recommend Made of Flesh as it will probably only appeal to die hard death metal fans despite Fleshcrawl's attempt to add some melody to their sound. This is just too uninspired and tedious for my tastes, but if you like your death metal simple and unpolished, then this album is for you. Otherwise, I would stay away from this one.
