More like an invasion from the tight-rolled, acid-washed jean dimension. My how far Crossover has come in the last couple decades. Not the usual Death/Gore/Grind fare we’ve come to expect from Razorback, this is total Cryptic Slaughter, Suicidal Tendencies, D.R.I. and S.O.D. worship. Don’t get me wrong, I love those bands, but this is 2006. Why would I reach for the 20-year late carbon copy when I can spin the actual vintage? Nowadays mixing Hardcore and Metal calls for an increase in heaviness and precision, two things Funerot abandon completely. They will bust out a Slayer riff now and then, but sometimes this even lapses into the sloppy, unfocused Punk vibes of shit bands like Black Flag and Murphy’s Law. The vocals probably hold this back more than anything. They are pure shit, no talent whatsoever. These guys are all probably cool, harmlessly paying a little homage, and I’ve got respect for the throwback types, but I don’t see their affectedly juvenile effort uprooting Heaven Shall Burn or Bleeding Through from my stereo anytime soon.
