Stinking Up The Night
12/8/2006 - Review by: Death Metal Shawn
DEATH BREATH - "Stinking Up The Night" - 2006 - Relapse Records
So-so opener "Death Breath" gives way to the headbanging frenzy of "Chopping Spree". The ultra-tight rhythm section and the head slamming guitar riffs do not let up for much of the album thereafter. Remember those chainsaw sounding guitars? They're baaack. Things do slow down for most of "Dragged Through The Mud". It is the compulsory slow song of the album, but still as ominous as a raven at midnight. The two songs that stand out the most to me are the aforementioned "Chopping Spree" and "Flabby Little Things From Beyond". Closing instrumental piece "Cthulhu Fhtagn!" is the perfect closer for this beast.
You could play "Stinking Up The Night" right alongside ENTOMBED's "Left Hand Path" and DISMEMBER's "Like An Everflowing Stream" and one would be very hard pressed to pick which one of these did NOT come out in the early 90's. It is THAT true and honest to that era. No frills, no gimmicks, nothing original or groundbreaking. This path needs no deviation. It sounds rehashed, but also fresh at the same time. That is not an easy thing to pull off. This album will slay whatever is left of you.
