Specialists/collaborators reviews

Hospital Carnage, the sixth full-length album from Spanish goregrind veterans Haemorrhage, sounds exactly as one might infer from looking at the cover art. Gore-themed lyrics matched with tortuous vocals and lightning-fast riffs characterize this entire release, and it feels more like a brutal punch in the balls than a truly in-depth musical experience. Haemorrhage have a knack for coming across as an extremely energetic and powerful act, even if their sound isn't anything particularly noteworthy. Fans of early Carcass and General Surgery should find plenty of enjoyment here, but those seeking a unique musical journey should look elsewhere.

Haemorrhage plays the style of deathgrind that was pioneered by Carcass, so expect plenty of fast grindcore sections mixed with mid-paced death metal portions. Although this isn't anything new, Hospital Carnage is generally convincing in its execution, and the manic vocals from Fernando Errazquin "Lugubrious" are quite a bit of fun to listen to. The rest of Haemorrhage are also clearly talented musicians, and the performances from the musicians here end up keeping things interesting throughout the full 35 minute duration. Hospital Carnage tends to lack in the department of memorable riffs, and although this album can be extremely fun while I'm experiencing it, I tend to find myself remembering very little once it's over.

Although Haemorrhage still have some work to do when it comes to writing memorable and unique compositions, Hospital Carnage is a generally impressive goregrind effort. The raw production, energetic performances, and comical lyrics make this a solid release, even if nothing particularly worthwhile. I'd say 2.5 stars are deserved here. Fans of Haemorrhage and goregrind in general will probably enjoy this one quite a bit - just don't expect anything too memorable or unique.
"Hospital Carnage" is the 6th full-length studio album by Spanish goregrind act Haemorrhage. The album will be released in May 2011 by Relapse Records. Haemorrhage is quite the cult act and has existed since the early nineties releasing both major and minor goregrind releases through the years.

It will probably come as no surprise that Haemorrhage kneel at the altar of early Carcass. In that respect they aren´t any different than other Carcass whorshippers like The County Medical Examiners and General Surgery. So you get both blasting grindcore and mid-paced death metal sections, deep juicy growls and higher pitched sneering aggressive type vocals too. And if you´re still in doubt, songtitles like "Intravenous Molestation Of Obstructionist Arteries (O-pus VI)", "Resuscitation Manoeuvres" and "Flesh-devouring Pandemia" will probably give you a clue to what this album is about.

Overall it´s so and so with the originality, so it´s up to the songwriting, the performance and the production to convince me. Fortunately all three elements are pretty good but I wouldn´t call the music outstanding or anything like that. I enjoy myself while the album lasts, but once it is finished I´m not able to remember much from "Hospital Carnage". The band are well playing and I especially enjoy the varied ( and at times comical) vocals on the album. A 3 star rating is deserved.
