Project: Failing Flesh
A Beautiful Sickness (Candlelight Records)

By: Jeb Branin

I am definitely a fan of Eric Forrest's work with VOI VOD so I was curious to hear what he had come up with in PROJECT: FAILING FLESH. Not surprisingly A Beautiful Sickness is a solid effort. Imagine if you can (or dare) the staccato (and blistering) metal of bands like PANTERA or MESHUGGAH constructed over a framework of soaring and haunting goth all filtered through a death metal band. Now imagine, and this is harder, that the above description actually works. It doesn't come across as yet another foray into dark metal and although it often feels doom laden, it doesn't really sound like doom either. Rather, this comes across as a band that means business (and their business is to crush your cranium). As I understand it, this is a re-release of a self-financed release and if so, I'm even more impressed as the sound is very grandiose and rather looming. I think you are going to be pleasantly surprised.
