If you are on the look out for something that is nasty, gritty, filthy and down right deadly, Nasty Surgeons certainly can provide you with all of that and more. Exhumation Requiem is their debut album and what you get inside is ten disgusting songs that are played in the form of death metal mixed with grind. These songs are a good combination of the two genres as you get songs that are wholly chaotic yet they are refined all at the same time, it’s controlled chaos. From note one Nasty Surgeons does their best to peel your face back with their corrosive brand of grind infused death metal and at points it may feel exactly like that.
After a brief intro from the opening song, Nasty Surgeons gets straight into the flesh of the album without hesitation and they don’t look back. There are a few songs on this record with some intros but those hardly slow these heathens down as after those intros are completed it’s straight back to the blasphemous blasting. Each song is played at a mach ten pace and I don’t believe that the word “slow” is in Nasty Surgeons vocabulary. What you get through these ten songs is something that is wholly tumultuous and flesh tearing and if you think you can escape the cacophony of sickness you would be wrong.
The more and more you listen the more you get buried under carved cadavers, assorted innards and fetid entrails and after a listen or so you may feel as though you need to bathe. Grit and grime seeps through your speakers as soon as you press play and more than that you get pelted by buzzing riffs, rib cracking drumming, rumbling bass lines and vocals that are purely savage and blood thirsty. Each song is a sickening display of brutality and Nasty Surgeons doesn’t quit until everything around them has been shredded to bits.
Exhumation Requiem is one bulldozing track after another that tries its hardest to bury you six feet or less under the cold, dark earth. Each song is just as sickening and twisted as the last and you just can’t seem to help but to revel in all of it. This record is well executed and has a nasty production sound to it as well to create an overall disgusting and headbanging sound. Not only that, but this is a pretty easy record to get into and sink your teeth into and you can listen to this over and over again with ease.
Overall, Exhumation Requiem is a solid debut album that provides you with enough filth to last you a while and enough headbanging metal to keep you going until your head rolls off of your shoulders. At the end of the day, this is a good grind infused death metal record that is sure to please the ears of death metal and grind fans alike.
