04. The Therapy

Murder Therapy plays brutal death metal and that they do very well. The band draws on a variety of genres for inspiration, but the music is mostly straight forward death metal mixed with a few contemporary ideas. Obviously the Italians don't bring anything new to the table, but Murder Therapy does prove on the tracks "Hidden in Lies" and "Carving Human Sculptures" that they can write some okay songs. The band has found a good balance between the fast and more slow in the music.

As a whole the Italians are good at varying the music and come up with some interesting riffs. The sound is beefy, but a little too dry and muddy now and then. To a degree it affects the experience of the music as a few of the details tend be a little blurry. If Murder Therapy is able to make their sound a bit clearer, but maintain the meaty feel in their music then they've come far. What the four piece show on this demo definitely promise well for what next to come.
