Yet another vinyl split release from Power It Up. This time Germany's Depression has been paired with Spain's notorious splatter deathers Haemorrhage. What I've previously have heard from Depression haven't been that convincing, but this is different. We are still talking death metal with a good deal of grindcore mixed in. The music is more aggressive and in your face compared to the Depression split with Mesrine. It suits the trio well and makes it all more interesting. Kai also seem far more diverse in his musical expression than previously. The tri-vocal assault helps vary the music to a degree where it stays interesting.
I freely admit that I'm not very familiar with Haemorrhage's back-catalogue and I don't find this live recording too convincing. Of course a live recording is not the best place to start so I'll let the Spaniards get the benefit of the doubt. The songs on this split has previously been released on the Live in the Morgue CD so if you already have this release there's nothing new to find here. The unit works their way through a set consisting of own material as well as covers of Carcass, Regurgitate and Impetigo. There are a few ups and downs on this split release, but seen as a whole it's an alright LP that should appeal to fans of both bands.
