Anasarca
Godmachine (Repulse Records)

By: Jeb Branin

Featuring former members of VOMITING CORPSES and VAE SOLIS this is the debut full length from ANASARCA. The music is a welding of European melodic death metal and the infamous Florida sound. Dual vocal tracks and thick riffs that vacillate between punishing and complex give the music some identity and a sense of complexity. Speed is used effectively and without compromise. A dark and sinister feel is present throughout the album even in the few and far between moments of reservation. Judging from the album's cover art I am assuming that the lyrics deal with issues of religion, specifically focusing on an anti Christian approach, certainly cliche but in many ways reflective of the scene from which they stem. Well executed death metal (all puns intended) is always going to appeal to me and this is no exception. A very solid release from a band that obviously has a great deal of potential much of which they have realized on this album.
