Earlier today I listened to Nervecell's first album, 'Preaching Venom' (2009), and when I now relisten to 'Psychogenocide', I realize just how big strides this trio from Dubai (yes Dubai!) have made in the course of those two years. It's...I don't know, a bit like the difference from 'Schizophrenia' to 'Beneath the Remains'!
When we make a status in 2012 and look back upon the 2011, 'Psychogenocide' will be in the top ten of death metal albums. I'll bet you that. And this comes from a man who never bets! Everyone into Nile, Morbid Angel, Immolation and the like have to check this out, because it's just a bloody cool album.
You shouldn't buy it because it's the first death metal album ever to feature lyrics in both Arabic and English, and you shouldn't buy it simply because of the curiousity of the band originating from Dubai, no, you should buy it for the very simple reason that it slays.
