KORPSE

TERRORIZER REVIEW - May 1996

KORPSE 'Revirgin' CANDLELIGHT. 5/5.

"KORPSE, the Aberdonian trio once described as a bastard hybrid of VOIVOD and AUTOPSY, are the best Metal band in the UK. That's my view, and this killer second album consolidates it. It goes like this: there's a huge, heavy sound, underpinned with Fluff's snarling, distorted bass, rolling along like a juggernaut. There's the AUTOPSY. But there's tricks at every turn, touches of unexpected compexity. There's the VOIVOD. What you don't hear is either of those bands being ripped off: KORPSE have their own sound. It's original.

They have balls, class and groove. Sure, they do SABBATH riffs, like a lot of bands. But if you're going to do this one to the max, you need groove. Cool riffs and muscular agile drumming. KORPSE have both in spades. The music is well written and played with absoloute conviction and authority. The sound is layered: the music is embellished with touches of class throughout, sounds and variations which make each track an exotic tattoo. It's this sort of maturity which allows them to take on an instumental like '19 Dyce' and carry it off, which distinguishes songs like 'Mirror Distance' or the title track from what's going on south of the border. Special nod to Taff's drumming: his playing is exeptional and gets better the more you listen.

Not everyone will embrace this band. The vocals are Death Metal, but DM fans sometimes get put off by the lack of gore-sodden imagery, and it's true that Fluff's smart aggressive lyrics seem to be more Hardcore than Metal. But if any part of you really appreciates music, CHECK IT OUT. Standout tracks? All of 'em. These stoners are on a roll."
