Crematorium: A world where only nightmares prevail
13/05/08 || Daemonomania
So here’s a little effort from Los Angeles’ finest (HA!) Crematorium, which they put out right in between an album no one ever heard and an album which sucked, namely “For all our sins.” Back in the good old days when it was ok to be open-minded about metal, this seemed kinda spiffy. “Look at this cool little band I found”, you think, “I bet no one has heard of them yet and I’ll be the first to know when they release a totally awesome full length and all my metalhead friends will be so jealous!”
About 1 million shitty free demos later, the average extreme metal consumer becomes quite jaded, and starts attaching the suffix “-core” to things that sound like Crematorium. Their arteries harden, as do their opinions and quite frequently their penises. But let’s return to those more flaccid times… ahhh, let the blood flow elsewhere in your body.
After this they released the aforementioned shit sandwich album, full of uneven deathcoreishness (they call themselves murdercore, which is about as retarded as spinning yer thumbs around and slapping your chest while drooling) and boring songwriting. They even fucked up some versions of the songs on this particular demo. So if you want to hear the initial wheezing farts before the big poop drops, pick it up! They cover “Whiplash” pretty well (blasphemy!), and “Cast the stone” is catchy in a stop-start way. I’ll say no more.
