Arkhon Infaustus – Filth Catalyst

up_032904_arkhonLast years “Hell Injection” seemed more organic in the production area and Arkhon Infaustus’ possessed more of a twisted and perverse aura of memorability in regards to their songwriting. “Filth Catalyst” is the sadistic stepchild of Carcass (similar dueling vocal styles and a sinister detuned guitar tone), but the synthetically triggered drum sound gives this album a sterile presence when these energetic songs should have been supported by a meaner bottom end. The full on speed and the riffs that swirl within this hectic intensity simplifies and sucks the life out of a fair share of this album. The slower segments of music is where A.I. really dig in and show the world just how ugly they can be with monstrous bends and false harmonic dissonance. A few excellent ideas surface on this otherwise mediocre effort. – Marty
