"Carnal Repercussions" (Rotten Records; 2008)

Reviewed by Christopher J. Kelter

File Salt the Wound’s “Carnal Repercussions” under the deathcore/metalcore heading. Death and thrash riffing create the sturdy backbone of “Carnal Repercussions” while catchy breakdowns give the disc needed listenability. “Carnal Repercussions” isn’t groundbreaking at all, but it is done quite well. Fans of the deathcore/metalcore genre will find much to appreciate here.

Salt the Wound adds a dose of *humor* with their songs. What else can be said for song titles like “Peas and Carrots” and “I Swear the Visine is for my Allergies” amidst the death metal carnage.

“Carnal Repercussions” is for fans of Job For a Cowboy, The Black Dahlia Murder, All Shall Perish, and other deathcore heavyweights.

“Carnal Repercussions” was produced by Cole Martinez and mastered by James Murphy. The disc sounds great – and quite impressive at times. Martinez and Murphy should get their due credit.

Salt the Wound’s “Carnal Repercussions” was recorded by Kevin Schaefer on vocals, Jake Scott and Vince Stropki on guitars, Brian Martinez on bass, and Brandon Tabor on 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.
