Murder Therapy
Symmetry of Delirium
Style: Death metal
Release date: September 7th 2009

AAAAAAAAAAAAAEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHH, Murder Therapy is one of the most brutal Italian death metal bands I know. After the release of the 2008 EP 'The Therapy', they signed a deal with Deity Down to record their first full-length; the result is 'Symmetry of Delirium'.

I don't think the band should be disappointed with their first birth. The songs they wrote have all the things the general death fan likes; rather brutal technical death metal with growling and grunting vocals, fast blast beating parts and grooving riffs. Many influences can be heard in the songs, but that isn't harmful, no it works even positive. It feels a bit like coming home, but you can't really put a finger on it where you heard it before. It's very obvious what the lyrics are about, what else can you expect from a band that's called Murder Therapy?

Fans of bands like Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Immolation, Cephalic Carnage and Nile will find many things of their interest in the songs of Murder Therapy. A rather short and brutal record, but it's quality over quantity this time.
