Surrogoat
Landscapes of Condolence

A very professional release from the excellently named Surrogoat, as although this is only a demo we have a glossy eight page booklet and pro-printed CD. Clearly SrGt mean business, so let`s see how their music measures up.
Unfortunately, Surrogoat did themselves no favours by putting the worst song first. “Rottenminded Clerk” canters along happily but is utterly unremarkable in sound. Things pick up with song number two (“World War III”) which opens with a crushingly heavy metalcore riff; much better! Indeed, Surrogoat remind me how a metalcore band like Pantera or Machine Head would sound like playing old school death metal. The production is clean, precise and first rate, although the band definitely have a crusty aura to them. The bruising, mid-tempo sludgefests featured on “Landscapes of Condolence makes for perfect material for mosh pit fiends.
Surrogoat still have some work to do in refining their sound, but for a second demo “Landscapes of Condolence” sounds very nice indeed. A satisfyingly heavy 7/10.
