Vile – Depopulate – CD Review

From the fierce and the furious…. The masters of Grind/Brutal Death Metal VILE have risen from the abyss to spew forth more utter, sublime chaos. Their latest, “Depopulate” [Crash Inc./Unique Leader Records], is a molten cataclysm of harsh, brilliant primalism.

Vile's sound is a fiery spate of elements–raw, growled vocals, blinding rhythms, discordant guitar blasts highlighted by intricate solos, and crushing tempos. This Bay Area act shows glimmers of its scene influences. And for Vile, all of these characteristics add an extra jagged edginess to already fierce quality.

The best tracks include “Bitterness,” “Eat The Rude,” the shredding roar of “Butchered,” “Path To Incineration,” and the title-track. Vile has a nihilistic glory all its own.

Overall, Vile is amazing. This one is for the most brutal of Death Metal freaks. Stay savage. Farewell.

Keep the faith, and the AGGRESSION. Peace.
