FINNISH DEATH METAL
7/10 – LUKE HAYHURST
From Violent Journey Records comes the second album from Finnish death metal band Corpset.
This one doesn’t take long to lead straight into the violence. Fast flowing riffs collide with a battering from the drum kit and deep growling vocals to produce an excellent display of death metal bombast right from the off as Corpset waste little time in getting on with the pummeling and pulverising. Sporting a fresh, crisp and modern style of death metal Corpset are catchy and belligerent and their superb song craft will keep your head banging long into the album!
“No Rest” lacks all elements of grace and subtlety and as well as no rest also proudly assumes an air of no tolerance, no compromise and no mercy. With a touch of melodic death/thrash influence worked into things you could liken Corpset to a heavier and more aggressive version of Swedish band The Haunted, a sound very much in keeping with their modern day approach! It lacks a little in variety but makes up for it with sheer aggression and a fair amount of technical prowess. Certainly an album that crank up loud when the mood takes you!
