What makes Cerebral Bore different from countless contemporary death metal groups is the ability to compose. From the first track to the end of the album, there is very little overlap.
The album adheres to a formula and maintains a signature melody that is recognizable enough for listeners to recognize, but fortunately does not borrow the melody from the previous song, because Cerebral Bore has a lot of talent in composing. Besides, the ability to coordinate guitar Paul McGuire and drummer Allan MacDonald is too perfect.
The dizzying chases seen in Spawn of Possession and Brain Drill and a little slam material of Devourment of both make listeners startled when listening to the debut work of a young but brave death metal group. Combining Kyle Rutherford’s remarkably jazzy bass with Simone’s unmistakable deep voice, Cerebral Bore was eligible for selection with any major record label, and Earache Records ultimately won. get this young talent, as they did with Wormrot two years ago.
The speed, stability throughout the Cerebral Bore is what catches the attention of the listener most, but if only speed is not enough. The most memorable moments in Maniacal Miscreaion are when the song decelerates and smoothly transitions from fast to slow, even with a groove color that makes listeners unable to help but sway to the music from time to time. The most prominent are the regular slams, strong double bass in The Bald Cadaver, Flesh Reflects the Madness. Cerebral Bore succeeds in incorporating a variety of techniques into its metal sound (with the only downside being the guitar solos) to give it a distinct charm and appeal.
Recorded and produced at Foel Studios (which has collaborated with Napalm Death, Godflesh, Electric Wizard, etc.), Maniacal Miscreation seems to have gone beyond what one would expect from a debut and out-of-pocket release of the members. pellets. It’s easy to understand why Earache recruited the group and re-released Maniacal Miscreation in April 2011. For fans who focus on extreme metal playing techniques, the album may lack guitar solos, but it’s still totally worth it. deserves to be on the list of the best death metal albums of 2011. Spending money owning a disc of Cerebral Bore, named after a weapon in the action game Turok, has absolutely no regrets.
