HARDWARES

DEROGATORY

Above All Else

(FDA Rekotz)

Reviewed by : Greg Pratt
Rating : 7.5

California death metal cretins DEROGATORY have a cool vibe going on here, the tunes technical enough to keep things interesting, but also sloppy and energetic enough to have some spirit and soul to them. The over the top vocal performance on cuts like 'Cryopreservation' give it a wild, wild, Wild Rags vibe, underproduced in all the best ways, and the energy overtaking the need for precision or, on the vocal front, anything approaching sophisticated. This is pure early-'90s underground death metal, something that might have got one shot on R/C, but didn't quite sell enough so got lumped in with Turbo USA/JL America acts, even though they do everything right here. Sure, there's little to remember once it's over, and what personality they have is mainly charming in its primitivism, but, hey, when it comes to death metal, sometimes that's exactly what you're after. And parts of the groove-laden 'To Escape What Is Now' just might end up in your head at the end of the day, which is more than can be said for many death metal bands. Plus, cool cover art!
