Purulent Infection is a one-man project, but unlike many other one-man bands there are no drum machines or other gadgets used on Exhuming the Putrescent and thanks to that the result is quite convincing. Exhuming the Putrescent may not sound super-tight all the time, but for a one-man band this is most impressive. It all starts a little weak with "Amniotic Spewage", but from thereon it only gets better and better. The music is brutal death metal in the vein of Gorgasm and Severe Torture, but it doesn't sound too much like one or the other. The songs are fairly varied and there's a good balance between the fast, the brutal and the groove. Kyle Christman even adds a lead or two along the way which put the icing on the cake.

The production is dirty and somewhat muddy, but nothing that affect the overall impression in a bad way. The sound suits the music, but without adding or withdrawing anything. Kyle tries nothing unheard on Exhuming the Putrescent and I wouldn't have expected it to be any different, but it's really of no concern as the outcome is forceful and appealing. If you like brutal death metal, then Exhuming the Putrescent is not a bad pick. There's nothing new under the sun, but that doesn't make it less good.
