I've become somewhat addicted to Embalming Theatre's simplistic and disturbing goregrind ever since I first heard their music on the Hormones From the Dead EP so I was quite happy when I recently found the re-release of the 2003 debut Sweet Chainsaw Melodies among my mail.
Musically there's really not a lot, if any difference at all from their later day material like the aforementioned Hormones From the Dead EP and their latest The World is a Stage… For Murder!. The music is of course goregrind with all that include from hilarious and grotesque samples/lyrics to downtuned guitars and deep gurgling growls. The songs are short and direct. It definitely helps keeping the intensity and energy in the music.
If you don't already own this little germ then perhaps you ought to get it now. It's certainly as good as anything else Embalming Theatre have put out to date. Sure it may not be new or contain anything extra, but it's still a good album that does in no way sound outdated. The re-release of Sweet Chainsaw Melodies is a great way to kill time while we wait for what the Swiss come up with next.
