Country: France
Title: Anatomy
Label: Xenokorp
Year: 2017
Style: Death Grind

It was about time for the 2014 reformed French Death Grind legend Putrid Offal to offer something new after their highly acclaimed 2015 debut, and so far only, full-length album, Mature Necropsy, and here we have the Anatomy EP made of 4 new tracks and 2 live recorded as bonus with a total duration of about 16 minutes. If sinister, regurgitating, ultra-brutal traditional Death Grind is your thing, Putrid Offal is definitely your thing, too! An overwhelming discharge of brutality and calculated sonic assaults from start til finish, very energetic and at the same time very heavy, oppressive, offering a good volume of headbanging-inspiring guitar riffs supported by sick drumming (by the Dehuman drummer who's a current Putrid Offal member, too) and thundering bass lines, and all this highlighted by the sickening double vocal levels, a deep growling one and a ghoulish, Black Metal type one. Putrid Offal do not disapoint on this new EP, on the contrary, they prove to be in excellent shape, so it's the right time for us to ask for a new full-length album, we know they'll deliver the good stuff.
