Thy Flesh Consumed

Thy Flesh Consumed are a brutal death metal / grindcore five-piece from Halifax, Canada, whose goal seems to be to out-brutal the competition on their fourth album "Unrepentant", a brutal piece of composition equivalent to such terms as "blast beat hell" and "murderous delivery". See how I used the word brutal three times in a single sentence? Well, there's a reason for that, as you'll come to see.

Fans of Morbid Angel and Nasum should find Thy Felsh Consumed enjoyable, or so I am told by the promo sheet anyway, but generally if you know someone into guttural growls, scraping shrieks and plenty of serpentine-style death metal riffing, then "Unrepentant" should be on your list of late Christmas presents to purchase for that person. Anyone finished their xmas shopping yet?

The music ranges between your typical death metal expression and more chaotic deathgrind passages, and the lyrics deal with anti-religion, warfare and socio-political issues, though it's unlikely you'll be paying attention to these issues without a lyrics sheet. Their vocals are simply too growly for that. While there isn't anything technically wrong with "Unrepentant", it's difficult to praise the release because honestly, it could've been released by any of the common denominator bands in the deathgrind / death metal genre. As such, die-hard fans of the genre will find Thy Flesh Consumed an entirely decent, if completely unsurprising and by-the-books outfit.
