What is it about Canada? Is it the beauty and coldness that makes superb Underground Metal bands Slaughter, Kataklysm, Strapping Young Lad, and the great Cryptopsy so bone-chilling, apocalyptic, and ninhilistic? The later band I mentioned is one of the leading bands in Extreme Metal these days. "Blasphemy Made Flesh" is Cryptopsy's debut album and it did not fail in making me thrash, and play air drums. There are a few things that stands out; One being the sound production....dirty, sludgy, and raw. Very much like "Seven Churches"-era of Possessed. How can you go wrong there? Secondly Lord Worm's vocals are much more sicker(not the trendy way or saying "sic", but just absolutley disugusting and repulsive sounding!) on "Blasphemy..." then their sophmore crowning achievement "None So Vile". Third is Flo's drumming. This guy is insane, amazing...no words can descibe this 6-arm drummer, who I bet anybody is the little-known son of none more than Pete Sandoval of Morbid Angel....And the last is the guitar-sound...Very down-tuned and more bassy-sounding. For a few seconds here and their in the opening track "Defenestration", it almost sounds like Flea or Les Claypool at trying to attempt a Death Metal song. Best tracks are "Defenestration", "Abigor" and "Open Face Surgery". If you are a fan of bands such as Malevolent Creation, Suffocation, and even classic Possessed had your brain melting, then Cryptopsy will have you foaming at the mouth!
