Nuclear Blast, 2010
Geez, for all the hype and high praise this English death metal band receives I expected a lot more than this. Riffs are heavy and chunky with slow, sludge-like riffs over never-ending double-bass drums and blast beats. There’s definitely some influence from Obituary being brought to the fore at times. I simply don’t see anything that sets Annotations Of An Autopsy apart from a thousand other death metal hopefuls. The songs are executed well, but three songs in and each song sounds like the last. Call me underwhelmed and unimpressed.
Annotations Of An Autopsy will be appearing at The Rock in Maplewood on Monday, May 24 as support to Dying Fetus. Additional support will come from Arsis, Misery Index, and Conducting From The Grave.
