MOTD - Cerebral Deformity: Decent Technical

Mp3 Of The Day

Band/Artist: Cerebral Deformity
Song: The Tomb
Album: Surgical Genocide (I assume)
Style: Technical Death Metal (instrumental)
country/location: Sometime in the last two or three years
release: Nampa, Idaho

Now this is a band that with the right materials and production could be quite good. Coming from a part of Idaho near Boise, Cerebral Deformity is a technical death metal band (one man project?) that takes influence from Beneath The Massacre, Necrophagist and other bands of that ilk. The guitar work here is blisteringly fast, hugely technical, and surprisingly melodic. There are parts that are just blasts of riffing, with others being slower melodic passages. The guitarist is quite skillful in his playing and he's not bad at the idea of composition. Each passage seem to flow into each other, which is kinda difficult to do well in this kind of music. With that said, there's not much here that stands out particularly. The production is what you might expect from a basement project, thin sounding but not quite raw enough to be kvlt. The drums come from a very poor sounding drum machine, which you can barely hear anyways. I have a feeling a lot of people will ignore this band and I can't say I blame you hehe. Cerebral Deformity has talent and skill, they just need some work. I bet someone is going to comment on the band logo...
