CORPORATION 187 Newcomers Of Sin
Anticulture Records (release: March 31st, 2008)
More than five years after Perfection In Pain, CORPORATION 187 comes back with Newcomers Of Sin, born in… pain ! Whereas they favoured fastness on the previous outlet, they have notably slowed down the tempo this time.
Although the first song, Provocking The Prophet, is reminiscent of Perfection In Pain's style, the rest of the album is quite different. Every track is much more technical but fortunately without falling into Metalcore, despite Filip Carlsson's yelling, but it's sometimes a borderline case ! There are permanent changes of rhythm, mellow passages on In The New Messiah, haunting melodies such as on the instrumental Procession or Stoner sounding guitars (Suffer As One) while the double bass drum hammers your brain most of the time. But don't worry, you still have a couple of fast songs (My Sickness and Teaching The Sick, Feeding The Dead) for your thirst of brutality.
CORPORATION 187 in 2008 ? A new way to overcome listeners now !...Laurent
