"Contaminated" (Open Grave; 2007)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

Atrocity's latest release is far from being a new recording, as this 10-track offering is merely an album full of alternate versions of previously released material -- which is why it sounds so raw, visceral, and balls-out heavy.

Unfettered by today's pristine methods, tracks like "Unseen Death" thrash about without the slick polish, making for a tasty crossover treat that sounds like Sepultura, DRI, and Napalm Death in a triple threat cage match.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
