Desecrate the Faith
Disfigured Arrangement

 

If you enjoy ultra-brutal death metal, played with extra hot sauce from good ‘ole Houston, Texas, well than look no further than Desecrate the Faith.  I see the band being labeled in the deathcore territory.  That’s B.S.  I mean I do enjoy deathcore, but this is slam death metal and yes, there are differences.

Desecrate the Faith will not win you over in originality.  Just not happening anytime soon.  But this form of music is a guilty pleasure of mine, so I am a little forgiving, with brutal slam death metal.  If you like Devourment, Pathology or Uncleansed, you will salivate over this.  The blast beats have some Suffocation overtones, at times.  Think Human Waste/Effigy of the Forgotten era.  Production is fairly decent, double bass has a typewriter feel to it, that at times I was like, ok, enough already and overall the drums are a bit overpowering.  Guitars and bass should have been mixed a bit better.

“Bleeding Abominations” is a perfect example of what Desecrate the Faith does well.  Driving home some serious goddamn heavy slams that are catchy.  Especially towards the end and then guttural vocals vomiting out of a clogged toilet on top of that.  Makes me work harder at the gym, when cranking this up.  My ears begin to bleed, foam begins to dribble out of my mouth, brain starts to ooze out of head and before you know it I’m lying in a heaping pile of my own blood, pus and gastric juice!!

Desecrate the Faith throws in a little technical guitar riffing too, on the top of all the blasting and slam.  Hell I even caught a little Origin like gravity blasting in certain parts.  Really cool.  “Demented Dissection” having some decent little pinch harmonics going on too.  Again there is nothing here that you have not heard before, but Desecrate the Faith is consistent in that non of the tracks suck and they all flow well and are about as brutal as brutal gets.

The digipak has printed lyrics on the panels, and the album cover is gross and disturbing.  I really enjoy this album a lot and if you like no frills, ultra-brutal slam death metal look no further than Desecrate the Faith’s debut, Disfigured Arrangement.
