Balatonizer churn out some fast, guttural death-grind with a bit of humor from Italy. These Spaghetti-heads play stuff very reminiscent of Mortician, with indecipherable, gurgled vocals, bass-heavy production and the use of a drum-machine. The CD booklet comes with some amazing comic art, and I was surprised to find out that guitarist/drum programmer Marco is actually an artist for Marvel Comics. The band has a strong creative side, writing some catchy riffs and hooks at times, although the Mortician influence does seem to be overwhelming.
