Incinerator - Rotten Flesh Macabre

INCINERATOR - Rotten Flesh Macabre (PUTRID CULT - CD 2017)
Oh look at thatwhat a cool sounding piece of rotten death metal! Incinerator sounds like some of these old US brutal death metal bands, such as classic Cannibal Corpse on their Barnes - era albums, Baphomet on their cult "Dead Shall Inherit" LP, like Suffocation on "Effigy of the Forgotten", Monstrosity on "Imperial Doom" and so on and forthThe resemblance to these old records is so strong that if someone played me "Rotten Flesh Macabre", without saying what band it is and when this CD was recorded, my guess would be that it's something from the early 90's! This is how perfectly this brutal death metal, the production on "Rotten Flesh Macabre" especially, has been re-created.  
And who knows, maybe they did take "Eaten Back to Life" to the studio and asked the producer "we want to sound like Cannibal Corpse!" Haha! And cool, because the effect is really good! Sure, there's nothing revolutionary, nothing what you would call "exceptional" about these songs… but it's a solid piece of brutal death metal filth, which is always nice to listen to. It sounds slightly archaic, maybe also a little bit too infantile and sloppy sometimes, when speaking of the arrangements and all these "cannibal corpse'ishideas that Incinerator has used here (even the growls are so much like Chris Barnes haha). It's also slightly too one dimensional, but that's not a major problem, because "Rotten Flesh Macabre" contains only five songs. So, it's a good listen and I'm sure I will be coming back to this CD once in a while. I also have their previous demo "Death Descends" in my collection and I'm sure I will want to have their upcoming split with Profanity Angel as well. 
Standout track: "Devastated Graves" 
Verdict: 70/100
