Album Review

To the unenlightened, Cataract may come off like your average, ordinary-sounding metal band. But metal experts will be able to detect that the Swiss group borrows equally from several different metallic subgenres — thrash, doom, and hardcore metal — as evidenced throughout its 2008 self-titled release. However, the group's most notable influence appears to be the good ol' Southern boys in Pantera, as evidenced by the Dimebag-esque riffing and Anselmo-like hollering that comprise "The Separation of Life and Time," "Choke Down," and the mostly instrumental (except for a few well-placed tortured screams) "Tonight We Dine in Hell." Five full-lengths into their career, Cataract still stick largely to the same sonic game plan they've embraced all along — and there appear to be no sudden musical shifts in sight, as evidenced by this solid yet unsurprising release.

Thrash metal at its best. Great vocals. You just wanna get up and punt an infant. \nn/

Oh my god

This is one freaking insane albulm. Epic brutality in this awesome albulm. A Slayer like Thrash, but a few notches up on the brutality meter. Thrash metal at its balls-to-the-wall best.

Blahhh

Wow I only looked up this band name because my band was planning on using this name >:( damn
