NERVOUS IMPULSE - Enough for Dementia
LABEL: Self financed
REVIEWED BY: PSL
PROVIDED BY: Nervous Impulse
Often brutal death metal bands emulate Suffocation and grindcore bands Nasum or Brutal Truth to some degree, but I don't see that as a big problem as long as the music is good. Nervous Impulse is also inspired by the abovementioned bands amongst others, but it's not something that is too obvious.
On the bands MySpace page it says that the music is a mix of brutal American death metal and mongoloid European grindcore. That's not a bad way to put it I think. The song-writing is competent, but Nervous Impulse do use a lot of the habitual things from death metal and grindcore. Thanks to that the music is above all conventional, but it has both the personality and diversity for it to be exciting.
The vocals vary from the common death metal vocals to the frenetic type of shouting often used in grindcore. Éric Fiset mix this a bit with the low end vocal style of goregrind. This does add something extra to the feel of the music.
The production is just like it should be. Hugues Deslauriers have done a fine job. The sound is thick, but it's polished enough so nothing seems to vanish. Enough for Dementia is a strong effort. It's brutal from start to finish and fans of death metal, grindcore and extreme music in general should have no problem liking this.
