Kamikabe "Aberration of Man" CD Review

“Aberration of Man”
Unique Leader Records
Released: August 2012

Kamikabe call Pittsburgh PA their home. Right off the bat, as I watch the video for the track "The Rot" from "Aberration of Man", I have to see the Pittsburgh Penguin on the wall. Huge even. Being a Philadelphia Flyers fan, I have to take a step back.

OK, maybe they aren't Penguins fans. Maybe this video wasn't recorded in their practice space. I have to assume that or I won't be able to continue... But man, if they actually like Sidney Crosby... 

Deep breath. Sidney Crosby would cry if he heard such music... Sure he would.

I do have to hand it to these Pittsburgh death metal technicians, they are skilled at their craft. Kamikabe are adept at creating punishing and hyper, death metal. Bands that I enjoy the most in this genre have the ability to play so fast that it seems like they slow down time. A slow motion reaction to an extreme speed. I enjoy Black Dahlia Murder much the same way. 

OK, Penguins kidding aside, well, not really, but... "Aberration of Man" kicks. Put it on when you need to blast off!
