“Occlused In Ottusity” contains 32 songs with a total duration of 25 minutes. Furthermore, Balatonizer’s longest track here is only 1 minute and 29 seconds… I guess you have already understood that the band is into grindcore with really brutal vocals.
Even if am not that much into this style I like their music but I cannot enjoy it. Most tracks are near 40 seconds and it is tiring to go to another song right at the time you start to like the previous one. Balatonizer are a technical band too and this obvious even if songs are a little bit weird. I know there are many bands into this style that compose songs this way but I don’t like it and I don’t think there is a point in that. The production is very good and even if they use drum machine the sound in not annoying at all for your ears. They have also shot a video for their :Muscular Prevarication” song which is good. They just need to pay more attention to their artwork which seems funny to my eyes. The booklet contains a cartoon with some pigs, the devil and the members of the band…
Anyway, if you like bands like Napalm Death, Cannibal Corpse and Agathocles then give a try to Balatonizer.
