INTESTINE BAALISM picture
Intestine Baalism is a Japanese melodic death metal band that was formed in 1991 by Seiji Kakuzaki (Vocals / Guitars), Takeshi Ohkouchi (Drums) and other unknown local musicians as a thrash metal band. After Katsumasa Yoshida joined on bass in 1992, they switched to playing death metal. Intestine Baalism fuses traditional brutal death metal with melodic death metal in direct, often surprising juxtaposition. After the release of one demo, the label Repulse Records signed the band and released their debut album, An Anatomy of the Beast. Due to several unexpected troubles, the band was put on a hold for a long while. Two remaining members, Seiji and Katsumasa, continued to write music while they were seeking full-time members who were able to dedicate themselves by 100% to the band. In 2000, these were found and the second album was recorded. Banquet in the Darkness was not released until 2003 by read more...

Although Intestine Baalism were one of the first significant Death Metal bands from Japan, they sound more like something straight out of Sweden. Dismember and Entombed influence runs rampant in this unholy union of brilliant Melodeath leads and pummeling OSDM riffage. Combining the best of both worlds, the band ensures every track has some fantastic leads that make them memorable and discernable from each other, without ever sacrificing brutality or darkness.

The vast majority of this album is straight up Death Metal, and the lyrics check out. Occultic ramblings of sacrifice and violation paint a picture of a twisted and godforsaken underworld, and the music similarly oozes an evil urgency. Even the melodic aspects of this album are much further towards the “evil” end of the spectrum than Melodeath tends to be. It’s clear here that the band enjoyed and was influenced by OSDM more than anything, but their penchant for writing melodic, memorable leads just happened to be smacked right into the middle of it. Which is actually typical of Japanese-style music; which tend to be on the more melodic side, when not going into full blown Avant-Garde territory.

Everything the album sets out to do, it achieves and does well. Even the acoustic interlude is nicely done. Not a weak moment here, no songs that aren’t amazing.
