Lowest Common Denominator (Discorporate Music)

By: Jeb Branin

The progenitors of last year's phenomenal album "Collapse Into Despair" are back with a new bastard offspring just in time to herald the end of the millennium and if the doomsayers of the world needed any further proof that the end is near they need look no further than this new CD from DICHOTIC. This is the musical equivalent to the apocalypse. DICHOTIC create absolutely gigantic riffs this time around that will leave everyone but the most diehard death metal connoisseurs curled up in a fetal position. Wall of sound? How about the Great Wall of China of Sound. This is what death metal was meant to sound like. Low gurgling vocals that occasionally break into screeches. Intricate and mesmerizing guitar and bass work that is as sharp as it is technically stellar. Furious drums that flail away without mercy or respite. And all of this in support of well written tunes that are tighter than a Republican at a benefit for the homeless. DICHOTIC is never going to be the biggest band to emerge from Canada but they are sure making a case for being the best.
