Prostitute Disfigurement – Embalmed Madness

prostitutedisfigurement_032This is a re-release of an album that originally came out in 2001 on Dismemberment records. This new version features five-demo tracks also recorded in 2001 as a bonus. Prostitute Disfigurement are a Dutch band that play death-grind in the vein of US acts such as Cannibal Corpse, Deeds Of Flesh or Mortician. The guitars are played well and there are some good riffs present here and I even picked out a nice little solo toward the end the track “Disemboweled”. The drums are all programmed, so I don’t have much to say about them apart from the fact that they are programmed. There are three different vocal styles used though the toilet bowl vocals are the overwhelmingly predominant style. The next most utilized style are the higher pitched rasps, but the best style would have to be the underused mid-ranged growls featured at the start of the song “On Her Guts I Cum”. Their sound would be more interesting with a better, more balanced mix of the vocal styles. To state the obvious, most of the lyrics deal with violence, especially toward women and the sound samples chosen for the album and demo tracks serve to further drive that theme home. I enjoyed the material found on “Embalmed Madness” more than the more recent material that I have heard from Prostitute Disfigurement, but it is still something that I don’t ever care to hear again now that this review is complete. – Lance Rogers
