"Kotfresser" is the debut release by German death metal act Impulsive Evisceration. It´s a 5 track 14:47 minutes long EP self-released in April 2011. Impulsive Evisceration is a one-man act consisting of J who handles vocals, guitars and programming. The band was founded in 2008 under the Frogkill monicker but changed name to Impulsive Evisceration before the release of "Kotfresser".
The music on the EP is brutal death metal with heavily processed and completely unintelligible growling vocals. The tracks are predominantly mid-paced and ultra brutal. One of the greatest features on the album is the unbelievably well produced guitar sound and the really edgy guitar riffs. The drum programming is pretty great too and before I discovered that the drums were programmed I actually thought it was a real drummer. Personally I find the vocals to be a bit one-dimensional and monotone and that´s unfortunately a slight issue on an otherwise great release. It´s probably an aquired taste though.
With it´s "over the top" nasty cover artwork and songtitles like "Spinal Cord Reconstruction" and "Trippin' On Meth" (which is also featured in a demo version) it´s not hard to imagine that this is a pretty extreme release. Really brutal death metal has a tendency to become one-dimensional fast and I can´t rule out the possibility that the same will be the case with Impulsive Evisceration over the course of a full-length release, but "Kotfresser" is definitely worth a listen and I found myself enjoying the EP quite a lot. A 3 - 3.5 (65%) rating is warranted.
