Desecration – Cemetery Sickness album review

DESECRATION are back with their release of “Cemetery Sickness” – 11 tracks of gore-filled Death Metal. Now, let’s get this straight shall we? DESECRATION have already been targeted and even arrested over their infamous album cover “Gore and Perversion” for offensive content, so, if you don’t like offensive content, gore and graphic imagery then I think the correct term for this is to either man up or don’t bother with these Welsh Metallers.

Of course Death Metal isn’t for everybody and it’s pretty damn difficult to see who can ‘out-gore’ one another, whether is CANNIBAL CORPSE, ANNOTATIONS OF AN AUTOPSY  or WHORETOPSY, you’re going to be competing but with DESECRATION – every listener is a winner and listening to the guys who do it right.

Start to finish, “Cemetery Sickness” is thoroughly heavy, damn right messed up and bloody fantastic! “Recipes of Horror” “Cabletie Castrator” and “Cut Up and Fed to the Dogs” are three of the strongest tracks on the release, just like the others they show the pure fury of DESECRATION and nothing less.

If you’re one of those kids that always have the question “How can you listen to all that screaming noise?” popped at you, hand that person a copy of “Cemetery Sickness” and tell them it’s because you have a pair of fucking balls and you’re not afraid of something heavier than their mother.

DESECRATION
have consistently been strong and furious throughout their entire career, they haven’t lost their touch and with “Cemetery Sickness” you can obviously point out that they’re not going to lose it any time soon.

The album is full of goretastic, face-melting brutality and THIS is how you do a Death Metal album right! “Cemetery Sickness” is an outstanding release but as usual with Death Metal, not for the faint hearted or pansies.

Rating – 8/10
