Vomiting Corpses – Coma: The Spheres of Innocence (Review)

Vomiting CorpsesVomiting Corpses were from Germany and played Death Metal.

This is a reissue of their 1995 album and their 1994 demo Cold Blood.

This is brutal and heavy; blast beats and crushing riffs paired with deep growls that menace and bully.

Apart from these guttural growls the band also throw in the odd surprise, with ethereal female vocals and someone who sounds exactly like the singer of Obituary both making appearances.

The songs, especially the demo ones, are rough and raw, but perfectly listenable and bristling with aggression. Even so, it’s a very satisfying listen with the music connecting on a primal level.

Vomiting Corpses clearly weren’t interested in just copying the bigger Death Metal names in the early 90’s; they had their own ideas about what Death Metal should sound like and who can argue with their vision when presented in such a good way?

There’s a clear sound progression between the demo and the album, although both are recognisable as the same band.

An enjoyable listen.
