Dead Animal Assembly Plant - Album Review - Old Fashion Hellfire

Dead Animal Assembly Plant - Album Review - Old Fashion Hellfire

Dead Animal Assembly Plant I am so intrigued, that if I were a cat, I would probably be on that assembly line- dead from curiosity. The hook in the opening song and title track Old Fashion Hellfire was opposite of what my brain expected to hear. This was a much-needed relief, because like momma always used to say, too much of the same crap makes for a dull soup. Ask any modern pop artist in the world. This Portland-based 5-piece is a balls-deep industrial metal band of butchers. Compromised of Z Wager, The Professional, Guitar Demon, Buzzard, and The Prophet, this crew is prepared to slice and dice you like a warm dish of sweetbreads. The song Rise With Me has a beautiful marching and anthem-like opening riff at 0:21. It is a beautiful piece of bloody pig snout ready to be served to the masses. Its driving guitars, sonically glued together with the fat bass guitar, deliver a well-balanced performance, sharing the stage with some percussive and ambient synths as well as soulful drums. This is their single, and I am stoked to hear more. A little further down the assembly line comes a song titled Be The Decay. To my used and abused ear holes, Be The Decay has a similar tonality and mix as Rise With Me. This feeling leads me to believe that maybe the same human mixed these two songs. This of course was after one of the butchers told me that two humans had their filthy little engineering hands on it. The song Six Feet Lower gave me the throw back low and slow Marilyn Manson feeling- something out of the “Smells Like Children” record. Dead Animal Assembly Plant has now officially taken me back to my first rock and metal records in the early 90s. Definitely bonus points there. I love the effort that was put in to this record from a musical standpoint as well as the ability to take the listener on a journey aspect- well done in that regard. What I truly feel it lacks, and most importantly of all, is a great mix. I would like to see the time and effort that Dead Animal Assembly Plant put into this full length LP get put into an EP of some sort. Imagine the LP effort and energy put into 4 songs. I’d like to see the band really dig in to the process of recording; perhaps some more organic instrument experimentation. But I digress- every independent artist is recording on a budget so I won’t dig in too much. I completely, personally understand that struggle. When you buy “Old Fashion Hellfire, you aren’t just getting some songs written by a band you’ve never heard of. You are getting a new and intriguing experience. I would recommend this record to those that listen to Rammstein, Marilyn Manson, or a more industrial Rob Zombie. I hope to the dead animal gods that this band puts out this much creativity and energy in their live show. I wish I could go see these guys once a month. I would. Purchase the record “Old Fashion Hellfire
