One thought on “Man Must Die: No Tolerance For Imperfection-2009.

  1. UKMetal, May 14th, 2013

    This is the first album I’ve brought from this truly remarkable band and it’s one I’m defiantly keeping in my collection. This band deserves more recognition because of it’s quality musicianship from each band member but also for the thought and hard work they put into this and probably other albums. The band focuses on not only the usual death, war and murder like ordinary death metal bands; but they also focus on social, environmental, political and personal issues that they feel strongly about. Take track three of this album “Kill it, Skin it, Wear it” where the meaning behind the song is about the bands personal view on people who wear animal fur or skin just for the sake of fashion. Also, take track 1 and the title of the album “No Tolerance for Imperfection” where the band say in the album guide “Everywhere you look today, whether it be on TV, a magazine or even a billboard that you pass on your way home from work, we are actually bombarded with advertisements and commercials telling us to look and act a certain way to achieve a more fulfilling life. It would seem that people today have no limits to what they will do to achieve what they perceive as perfection in appearance and social status!”

    On to the music itself and the album starts of with “No Tolerance for Imperfection” and with the guttural vocals of Joe McClynn before being joined with the guitars, bass and drums. The guitars have a pitch perfect sound from Alan McFarland which sets a heavy tone throughout the whole album with some very technical and blast beats from former drummer Matt Holland. Joe McClynn also does a little bit of screaming in this song and in other songs but his guttural vocals just match the album perfectly, especially with the ideology behind the album, an angry sought of vocals. You can’t hear the bass that much in the album from Danny McNab but I’m sure he would have to have been equally skilled to keep up with the constant technical guitar playing and also keeping that heavy tone throughout the album.

    The song that must be my favorite through out this album is track 2 “Gainsayer” especially the bit when it gets to the chorus as the guitars play in what I think is a very technical high pitched sound that really gets you going but throughout this song the guitars always seem to be playing some sought of technical solo and in other tracks such as “Kill it, Skin it, Wear it” where there is a nice sounding high pitched solo to start the song of and in chorus bits. “Gainsayer” ending is just as good as the guitars are doing their solo, the drums are doing this constant blast beat and double bass before ending with a good drum beats. The band at one point even reminded of a start of a Slayer track on track 4 “It Comes In Threes” just can’t put my finger on the song I was thinking about but it really had that high pitch guitar sound at one of the start of a Slayer album, even so the song was still incredible with again more high pitched sounding guitar solos with a rhythm to it at one point. The album even has an instrumental on track 8 called “What I Can’t Take Back” it has in some points distant guitar playing before getting louder and then fading out with some basic drum beats but also show what the band or members may have been through in the past few years.

    All in all this a truly amazing album that I can’t fault; the guitars are perfect and so is the guitar playing from Alan McFarland which is probably the sweetest you can get in death metal let alone technical death metal, the vocals are also perfect which matches the albums criteria and they have that explosive feel to it as well, the drums (again) can’t fault them awesome blast beats and all round playing and credit to the bassist who must (as I say) be equally as skilled as the guitarist to keep up. Even after listening to this album I just had to buy a t-shirt which I’m glad that I have. This band deserves way more recognition from us metal heads as I believe these are equally as good as the legendary Dying Fetus – defiantly the best technical death metal band in the UK at the minute!!! Can’t wait to get more of their albums.
