Balatonizer is the band around growler Mario M., bass player Rodan and Marco F. (guitars and drum programming). “Occlused In Ottusity” is their debut full length release (or is it a mini, with its total duration of 25 minutes?), named after their 2002-demo tape, and the 32 songs, with average duration of less than one minute (I figured it out without a calculator, can you imagine?), stand for some sort of maniacal, mad, extremely brutal, chaotic, hyper-kinetic and psycho(pa)t(h)ic Grindcore, interspersed with samples from Italian movies from the seventies, an energetic / inhuman drum computer and some more Death Metal-oriented influences (especially in the low tuned ‘turbo-injection’ bass riffs). This out-of-mind musick isn’t original or renewing, it doesn’t open a new dimension of revelational experience, but I’m sure this will be appreciated a lot by all those who are satisfied by the gore and the sickness of for example early Carcass, Exhumed, Rupture Christ or Gorerotted, but also for example Cannibal Corpse, Gorgasm, Suffocation or Cattle Decapitation, just to name a few. Oh yes, the CD also includes a video track of “Muscular Prevarication”.
