Scent Of Flesh have released two albums prior to the MCD Become Malignity. It's clear that the Finns are no newcomers. Their technical and semi-brutal death metal with some rather obvious references to Deicide may not hold any that hasn't already been tried, but the music is skilfully written and quite diverse. Particularly the vocals have a lot in common with Deicide, but the music also bears hints of inspiration from the Americans, but Scent Of Flesh is far more technical than the aforementioned, and the music is also a little more varied, but the similarities are there without question.

Moreover the band has stuffed in a bit of melody here and there. Another plus is that Scent Of Flesh has achieved a sound that is both crisp and clear. This adds positively to the overall impression. As I wrote before, it's very likely that Become Malignity doesn't contain anything unheard, but it's certainly better than most of what is being put out today. Fans of death metal a la Deicide shouldn't pass on this as it doesn't come much better than this.
