Cephalic Carnage
Anomalies (Relapse Records)

By: Mike SOS

The musical acrobatics and vocal gymnastics of Colorado's Cephalic Carnage have been well documented throughout the band's 13-year history, but never have they been captured so succinctly than on ANOMALIES, the warped outfit's latest 12-track endeavor. Still grinding at lightning speed, and able to turn the intensity knob way beyond the levels of safety on tracks like "Litany of Failure" and "Wraith", this quintet have also found some solace in the art of the groove, as tracks like the death growling stoner stomp of "Piecemaker" sound like leftovers from Alabama Thunderpussy rather than a CC track. Nonetheless, the boys still pummel you with their blend of unique off-timed banter, as tracks like "Dying Will Be the Death of Me" and "Scientific Remote Viewing" feature all of the nuances that you've come to expect from this band, which translates into the listener expecting the unexpected and bracing themselves for a tumultuous ride with a band with no boundaries and no compromise in sight.
