Bestial Holocaust 'Into The Goat Vulva' review

BESTIAL HOLOCAUST
'Into The Goat Vulva'
(Metalhit.com)

I appreciate all review submissions and the fact that bands/labels do consider  Dead Void Dreams to be a good way getting publicity for their releases. Some things rub me the wrong way however, case in point: Metalhit have been advertising themselves as the biggest underground digital metal label or something to that effect, yet they don't find it necessary to send out properly done digital promos to reviewers. Theirs is the bare minimum, just a link to the album, no band bio, cover art or even song titles/tags included, I mean what the fuck? Any 14 year old kid does better than that on his illegal downloading blog - please, give it a thought. Thanks.

Now, with that out of my system, let's see what we've got here (except a cliché moniker and a hilariously confused album title), shall we? Fast, primitive, non-complicated blackened thrash that hails the glory days of Sarcofago, Sodom and Destruction among others - that's the name of the game for this Bolivian act. Unlike those greats their stuff, however, doesn't possess the lasting power and timelessness of 'I.N.R.I', 'Obsessed By Cruelty' or 'Infernal Overkill' ; 'Into The Goat Vulva', despite its attempt at pure menacing intensity seems to sound much longer than just 8 songs, in kinda bad way. Bestial Holocaust would find a good riff and proceed playing it at blistering speed but not developing things much from that point onwards and after awhile each song starts sounding the same, avoiding particular highlights, much less awesomeness. Nothing truly horrible but I can see this album more likely gathering dust/being deleted to trash folder than being on constant playing by those to whom the band is trying to appeal to. P.S. And don't get me started at the 'novelty' of having a female singer. Holy Moses, Detente etc.? [6]
