Rotten to the core, drenched in fetid remains and stagnant blood, Contaminated comes shredding out of Melbourne to deliver Final Man. Final Man is Contaminated’s debut full length record that is filled to the bursting point with nine sickening, and utterly disgusting death metal tracks for your twisted pleasure. Contaminated seem to have set out to create a sound that is nothing but death; no bullshit, no filler, no fluff, what you get is pure, unfiltered and flesh consuming death metal in heaping portions. Contaminated rockets out of the gate with this record and keep rolling their brand of black, sludge filled and cadaver stuffed death metal until everyone and everything is lifeless.
Final Man seems to have been coated in a pure blackened hell fire and baptized in the parasite infested blood of many victims to create such a punishing, raw, unfiltered and completely head caving sound. Through this record you get subjected to much more than just a beating as Contaminated rains their brand of blistering death down upon you for nine straight songs. After listening you will be lucky to have you life completely in tact as Contaminated hits you with barrage after barrage of sickening, life threatening and throat slashing tunes.
Contaminated seem to possess what their death metal forefathers possess as far as approach and unrelenting sound goes. Final Man truly is devastating, blood letting and bulldozing as they don’t pull any punches and they surely don’t skip out on the brutality. Each song is a relentless blood thirsty death metal anthem that aims straight for the neck only to hack at it minutes into the listen and only to discard your body in a ditch somewhere. Final Man is unapologetic and ceaseless in its approach as it rumbles out of your speakers providing you with some of the murkiest and most deadly death metal that you can get your hands on.
Save for somewhat of an interlude titled Starved, Contaminated roll through song after song with ease. Each song melts into the next providing you with a completely new and different barrage of metallic fury that you haven’t heard before. Even though each song is just as punishing and blistering as the last, they all have a distinct and unmistakable sound. For this being their debut full length it sure doesn’t come off that way what so ever. Each song is well executed, produced and put together only to provide you with horrifying and blood curdling death metal tunes.
This gurgling mass of tangled flesh and bones is a force to be reckoned with to say the least and Contaminated is a band to be looking out for. Final Man is barbaric, savage, raw and punishing and really what more could you want from a death metal record? Overall, Final Man is a record that every death metal fan should have on their radar and if you don’t, you really should keep you eyes peeled as wide as they can be.
Final Man will be out through Blood Harvest Records July 7, 2017.
