"Outcast Vs. Moker" (Shiver Records; 2006)

Reviewed by Snidermann

I can understand why record labels release split releases (two bands on a single CD). It's cheaper and it gives bands of the same genre the chance to promote one another. 

This release is, obviously, a split CD between Outcast (with a "c" not a "k," thank God) and a band called Moker. Each band does three songs here. 

As I listened to "Outcast Vs. Moker" I was thinking what a great listening experience it was. I thought my ears were going to fucking bleed. This split CD is hard, in-your-face, on-your-ass, growling, heavy, death metal. 

Thanks to our East Coast Editor, Christopher J. Kelter, many of us at Rough Edge have a new appreciation for music that's a lot heaver than we are used to. And let me tell you, this shit is heavy and doesn't let up until the final chord fades away. 

This shit is for real. Nothing is hidden. What you hear is what you get and, in my book, what I got was a couple of off the hook, fantastic heavy metal bands. I don't usually give a four chainsaw rating to a split CD but this one certainly deserves it.

The tracklisting of "Outcast Vs. Moker" is as follows:

Outcast - "Phoenix" 
Outcast - "Silence Screams"
Outcast - "Human Apocalypse"
Moker - "Rip the Flesh"
Moker - "Mr. Torture"
Moker - "Bleed on Me"

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.
