"Demo 2002" (Self-produced)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton

Judging by the four songs on their 2002 demo, Lambotomy revel in stretching the musical envelope until it's stretched so thin you can almost see through it. The songs on this CD run the gamut from nearly nu-metal to hardcore and everything in-between and that's just in four songs. Sometimes, in fact, it's just in one song. If you like any form of heavy metal, you're going to find something to like in Lambotomy's bag of tricks.

If there's one thread that continues through every track, it's one of anger and aggression. Lambotomy make that clear constantly and consistently. Then again, with a song title like "I Wonder How Long It Would Take Your Body to Decompose If I Cut You Up and Put You in a Suitcase and Buried You in My Backyard ("Love Song #1)," the band isn't leaving a lot to the imagination.

If there's any surprise on this CD, it's track #4, which starts out like a sappy ballad, flares into a Slayer-like rage for a second, and then slows again. It's a song that will keep you on your toes, which is probably exactly where Lambotomy wants you to be.

"Everything Feeds" (Self-produced)

Reviewed by Snidermann

 

Based in Jackson, MS, Lambotomy not only has a very cool name, they also rock dead-on solid.  Their CD, "Everything Feeds," is cool, dark twisted hardcore metal with extremely candid and focused lyrics.  Lambotomy has been around for awhile, mostly touring all over the South, and it's a pity they haven't exploded nationally. They are songwriters and musicians whose razor blade sound deserves the recognition of a major label.

Based on "Everything Feeds," these guys must be dynamite live! Metal needs more bands like Lambotomy. 

LAMBOTOMY is: Justin McKinney - vocals; Chris Brown - bass; Bryan Chase - guitar; Dallas Spence - Drums.

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.
