Devourment - Conceived In Sewage
By Denise FalzonDallas, TX death metallers Devourment promise absolute brutality and they've consistently delivered with each release. Fourth LP, and Relapse debut, Conceived in Sewage continues this tradition with 33 minutes of slamming, brutal death metal mixed with grind elements. Fast and punishing throughout, the record starts off with the blood-soaked, hate-filled "Legalize Homicide" and the momentum is kept up with brutal blasts and catchy riffs reminiscent of Immolation and Cannibal Corpse, along with vocalist Mike Majewski's masterful, throat-shredding gurgles. The militaristic "March to Megiddo" provides a break, while a strong Suffocation-/Internal Bleeding-style groove is also dominant, particularly on the breakdown-heavy "Today We Die, Tomorrow We Kill." Highlight "Heaving Acid" utilizes an unorthodox song structure, yet still maintains Devourment's old-school intensity. Excellent production by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal) at his Mana Recording Studio in St. Petersburg, FL takes Conceived in Sewage to a higher level of eviscerating brutality.
