Comatose Music (2012)
Seven words: Nile "Amongst the Catacombs of Nephren-Ka" could splendidly sum up this review in one sentence. Antropofagus does try to make things varied by alternating between slow and heavy and fast and technical death, but slow stuff is incredibly simple - exactly as on Nile's debut, and even vomiting vocals are similar.
With the exception of the first song which is fairly original, Antropofagus borrows licks and riffs from Nile in great measure, but occasionally Suffocation and All Shall Perish (crazy fills between riffs) also appear. However, the entire album screams Nile from their debut. Sure, it sounds good and the musicians are very skilled but why write the same album twice? Okay, not the same, as this album is very uneven and even simply boring toward the end.
I am quoting Tom Araya speaking of Sepultura's "Chaos A.D.": "Their latest production is quite not bad but I think they should stay away from what we're doing and write their own stuff". I don't think Karl Sanders will issue a similar statement on Antropofagus, but if he chose to make one, I would not blame him one bit.
