ALCHEMIST - Organasm - CD - Relapse Records

review by: Roberto Martinelli

There's so much cool stuff going on in this album by this Australian band. I guess Organasm would be most simply classified as a metal record that has hardcore-like elements. Then again, that wouldn't really be explaining it well at all. The biggest ingredient is definitely metal, but there's this strong tribal element that goes along with Enslaved and 70s prog. Then mix in vocals that sometimes are phrased like Root at its best and are delivered with eagle shrieks that would impress Dani Filth.

Overall, Organasm is a pretty laid back album relative to its genre. It isn't necessarily impressive as far as its individual parts are concerned. But as a whole, this record is a very interesting, creative work that is pretty highly recommended.
