Zombie Inc. – A Dreadful Decease

Horror Movies and Music. These are normally things people assume would go hand in hand, and sometimes, they go absolutely perfectly, like Alice Cooper, Rob Zombie and Murderdolls. Sometimes it can go very badly like much of the entire Horror Punk scene. Thankfully, Zombie Inc. fall into the former category and their brand of Horror Death Metal is a kick that a dying scene really needs right now.
With sound-bites from old horror flicks accompanying some old school death metal styling’s, this is one bizarre combo that is not to be missed. With songs such as We Must Eat! And Planet Zombie, we are left under no illusions where this music is going. Brutal American Death Metal accompanied by horror lyrics.
My only problem with this album is that it is mostly a gimmick, and that runs fast pretty quickly. There is very little variation so the music can become very stale very quickly unless you are a huge fan of Death Metal, then the gimmick lasts a little longer.
Overall this is a good album, which runs out of steam fast. If you’re a fan of death metal, pick this up as it is an amusing take on death metal, but if you only have a passing interest, you won’t get much from this. (7/10)
