International death metal bulldozers Bone Gnawer released their mini CD Canale Di Carneficina a couple of months ago. Canale Di Carneficina features old songs, as well as songs that were not used on the new album. There are four songs total which come to a fifteen minute onslaught of pure and pulp filled death metal. There’s noting quite like looking a cannibal in the face, and Bone Gnawer provides that experience for you. They provide you with brutalizing and powerful death metal; death metal that shocks your system and hacks away at you as though you are a lamb to their slaughter.
For the entire four track trek through a maze of corpses and burning flesh you are at the mercy of Bone Gnawer. The more that you try to fight the more fun it is for them. Once the smell of blood hits their nostrils, there is no escaping the eviscerating wrath.
There isn’t much that you can do to save yourself from this blood thirsty band as killing and maiming is the only thing that they know how to do. Even at only four songs, Canale Di Carneficina makes you feel as though you’ve had your limbs chopped and hacked off and the blood drained from your body.
Canale Di Carneficina is a death metal sight to behold. The entire mini CD is powerful, and not only that but you get a good amount of groove and with that groove each song snakes and creeps its way into your brain latching on and draining the life from you.
There really isn’t a filter on Bone Gnawer and there will never be. They are a force to be reckoned with, and that force likes to pack as much gore and viscera into each song as possible. Bone Gnawer isn’t a murderer stalking their prey, they are a brute that takes you and strips your flesh from bone and dumps your body in a ravine just for fun.
Throughout the listen, your body goes through a number of torture techniques. Each riff leaves a cavernous hole in the side of your head as the drums blast their way through your sternum. Beneath the ripping riffs and the skull pounding drums lies a bass that tears flesh and drains marrow. Forcing its way into the music much like a battering ram that was set ablaze are the vocals that are volcanic and larynx shredding.
Canale Di Carneficina is devastation and raw power in every sense of the word. The slaughtering death metal power that Bone Gnawer possesses is immense and once the lobotomies commence, there is no stopping the brute force that is Bone Gnawer.
