MetalBite Review by Adam M on 3/31/2011
Vicious Death Metal that has a strong Grind influence is performed by Disentomb. The songs have the chunky riffs and low register vocals that youíd expect from a band from this genre. They follow a similar trajectory to Suffocation, but have an even greater focus on the Grind aspect of their music. Every song here has a deep, low sound that vibrates throughout.

Thereís an attempt to mix up the blast beats to maintain the interest of the listener. However, one canít escape the feeling that the music sounds sort of generic at times, though not nearly as much as a band like Six Feet Under, for example. The drumming maintains a tight backbone for the band even though the remainder of the instruments sound a bit buried in the mix. An example of this is during the track 'Abhorrent Expansion' where the rhythm section is particularly solid. The band tries to bring a furious approach to the fore, but a reasonably short album length doesnít quite allow the songs to fully shine through. The music is enjoyable enough, but far from compelling. Those looking for a rough, pulverizing approach to Death Metal riffs will find appeal on this album, but those looking for an ingenious approach to Technical Death Metal may find "Sunken Chambers Of Nephilim" somewhat lacking overall.

Disentomb proves to be adequate, but far from anything special. The musicianship is one of the high points of the album and the production, while decent, is a low point. Thereís definitely an audience of Death Metal fans that will find the work here appealing, however. As long as your expectations arenít overly high, there could be something for even the most average of metal fans as well.
