Stop Releasing Albums In Late December
So according to sources, Irritate's Ten Stabs of Demented Violence was released on 24 December 2008, which took its chances of appearing on anybody's year-end list down to right around zero. Gotta wonder whether they did this on purpose because they hate you & wish you would die, or if they just didn't know how great their album is, or if (as the story indicated by the recording & mixing dates suggests) they were just eager to finally get the record released and get on with their lives. Anyway, it reminds me of Autopsy, which means "it sounds like one of the best metal bands of all time," and it's hitting absolutely all the right spots today. Mid-tempo & below death-doom-grindmash of stunning potency. The atmosphere, man. This is kinda exactly how it's done. What is it about Finland? Not all Finnish metal bands rule, but the ones that rule do so with gore-flecked, pitiless brutality.
