UMUR
"Intention Surpassed" is the 2nd full-length studio album by US grindcore act Defecation. The album was released through Nuclear Blast Records in January 2003. Defecation was formed as a side-project by Righteous Pigs guitarist Mitch Harris (guitars, bass, vocals) and Napalm Death drummer Mick Harris (drums, vocals) in 1987. They released the "Purity Dilution" debut album in 1989. It was initially a one-off project, as Mitch Harris joined Napalm Death in late 1989, and both guys focused on that band (not for long though as Mick Harris soon left Napalm Death to form Scorn). However Mitch Harris opted to ressurect Defecation in the early years of the new millenium and recorded "Intention Surpassed".

While "Purity Dilution" was a team effort, "Intention Surpassed" is a one-man project where Mitch Harris handles all guitars, bass, drum programming, and vocals. Although there are 14 years between the debut album "Intention Surpassed", the music style is at it´s roots pretty much the same on the two releases. It´s Napalm Death influenced grindcore with some nods toward death metal. "Intention Surpassed" is a much sharper and less chaotic sounding release compared to "Purity Dilution" though and the programmed drums also provide the album with a more artificial and less organic sound than the case was on the debut album. The vocals are also a bit different as they are more aggressive and higher pitched than the growling vocals featured on the debut album.

"Intention Surpassed" is as such well produced but the programmed drums aren´t that suiting. They are fairly well programmed but in this case I´m sure a human drummer could have done the music more justice. The fact that the material on the 13 track, 39:04 minutes long album is a bit one-dimensional is not exactly a positive either, but it´s still overall a decent grindcore/death metal release deserving a 3 star (60%) rating.
