Germany's answer to Dismember is back. Like their Swedish counterpart, Fleshcrawl has never deviated much from their set path and with Structures of Death it's no different. The band do try a few new things now and then, but most of all it sounds like they are doing things on the routine. Structures of Death have its moments like "Into the Fire of Hell", but unfortunately it all quickly become a tiring experience. Despite of it being three years since the predecessor Made of Flesh the German haven't been able to create something the meets the standard of their past material.

Actually the band begins to sound more and more like a tired Dismember clone. Some of the answer why that is should be found in their trademark buzz-saw kind of sound. It doesn't benefit them anymore that their sound is so close to the Swedes, but also many of the riffs tend to appear more inspired by Dismember than previously. Not that there's anything wrong in this if you're a newcomer, but a trained band like Fleshcrawl should have a little more to offer than what they show on Structures of Death.
