Negative Creeps: Mutual Annihilation

Negative Creeps are a 5 piece band, formed in the early 90's, who hail from Greece and play a mixture of thrash and death metal. Mutual Annihilation is their second full length release for Black Lotus Records.

I listened to this CD numerous times, but not for reasons you'd maybe expect. This is one brutal listen and when I say that, yes the music is both heavy and brutal in its delivery and attack, not to mention the song titles and lyrics deal with some pretty extreme subject matter, but brutal primarily in its inability to deliver something remotely original. I had to dig a lot deeper than usual to find something of substance and merit. Let's start with perhaps the bands one strong point, vocalist Makis (no last names on the bands web page for any of the band members) has the perfect hardcore shouting voice for the style of material that the band plays, and he barks out his commands with all the fervor of a drill sergeant intent on busting your skull open if you don't drop down and give him twenty. Unfortunately this is where the compliments end. They have 2 seemingly capable guitarists in Panho and Tomek, yet they mysteriously cannot come up with anything skillful in their riffs, and the songs naturally end up suffering for this lack of originality. For example the same 2 notes which are repeated ad nauseum throughout the ridiculously titled "We Come For Your Ass" is probably one of the lowest points musically on the whole disc. The biggest problem though with Mutual Annihilation is that nothing sticks in the memory banks after the disc is done. If you are a fan of this style of music, you will probably want to pass on this one.
