Carbonized Records have unleashed the debut EP ‘Fleshworks’ by Canadian Death/Grind quartet Bodyrot on a cassette only release.
A slow brooding guitar tone and a methodical drumming style leads into opening track ‘Body… Reclaimed’ before being replaced by rampaging riffs and brutal Old School Death Metal drumming. A duelling vocal style of ferocious deep growling and a rawer almost shrieked style compete for supremacy whilst the rest of the band hammer out uber-aggressive vulgarity with just a hint of groove.
This is only a very short four track demo but with the carnage wreaking mayhem of ‘To the Bog’ it is certainly quick to make its point. Moments of Death Metal rhythm are quick to appear but equally are shattered just as fast by raucous Grind Beastiality, and this back and forth style sets the tone for the whole demo whose seven minutes fly by in a haze of vitriolic haze and repugnant sounding riffs and growls.
