Balatonizer - Occlused In Ottusity (This Dark Reign Recordings/Devil Doll Records) - Back
Do you want to hear something that hits like a sledgehammer, has blistering riffs, and tons of blast beats to feast upon? The brutal death/grind of Balatonizer is what you want!! Various bands come to mind while the music pummels your head, including Cannibal Corpse, Immolation, Dying Fetus and maybe a little Mortician because of the drums. Surprisingly, the programmed drums aren’t to bad, and I’m not a fan of electronic drums in death metal oriented music. Everything combined creates a brutal and appealing disc. There is a music video for one of my favorite tracks on the CD as well, “Muscular Prevarication” as and extra. It’s a little weird, but it’s pretty good. Most songs are good as well, but as in most grind-oriented music, I wish the tracks were a little longer. A total of thirty-two tracks for only twenty-five minutes will leave you hungering for more. “Occlused In Ottusity” is quite good and should grab your attention like the cold, hard steal of a riffle in your face.
