Soilent Green Inevitable Collapse In The Presence Of Conviction
Although the jaw-dropping dynamics and sludgy groove of Sewn Mouth Secrets may never be effectively topped, Soilent Green’s latest sees them regaining the kinetic energy and viciousness that Confrontation was sorely missing. Front-man Ben Falgoust has stepped up his game, reincorporating the higher-pitched vocals from earlier albums and positively spitting venom throughout the release. Musically, the album recalls the technical fury of A Deleted Symphony For the Beaten Down, only more frantic and disorienting. At 41 minutes, the album is in and out like a crack-addled bank robber, robbing the listener blind and pistol-whipping them for good measure. One never quite knows where the next riff will take them, which may irritate some, but will no doubt be the selling point for others. Inevitable Collapse is unpredictable, undeniable and distinctly Soilent Green, and even a less than stellar offering from such a solid group still mops the floor with the competition. (Metal Blade)
