Hot damn, it seems Today I'm only reviewing good shit! I haven't heard about this band before, so I'm surprised they are around since 2003 and have three studio albums underbelt before this fourth effort. I guess they targetted their niche and they're better known locally or in certain Death / Deathcore circles; with all this music lying around nowadays it's no wonder there are so many factions and small hermetic circles. Anyway, getting back to Home Invader, this is a blasting, totally brutal piece of Groovy Death Metal with occasional Deathcore and even Goregrind influences but only enough to make it even groovier and more dangerous. There are so many little things to discover here from short bass solos to guest appearances from members of Cerebral Bore, Walking the Cadaver or Dehumanized, piano/synth inserts (!?!), neckbreaking fast rhythms supported by (almost) breakdowns to keep things spicy, excellent graphic and down to earth lyrics, and plenty of catchy / memorable elements to make something stick to your mind after the audition. 9 tracks, a bit over half an hour of playing time, a very good release, I wasn't so impressed since the first time I've heard Czech Death Grind sensation Pigsty, and to some extent Moker actually remind me of Pigsty, I guess it's that same kind of groove! The album comes in jewel-case CD format with lyrics and well inspired artwork accompanying each track's lyrics.
