The End of the World

I review a lot of demos. It's not out of the goodness of my heart, or for the benefit of struggling unsigned bands across the metal scene, but because demos are short and I am lazy. Morgue Supplier, and their especially short demo (three songs, woohoo!) The End of the World, are one of the better acts to come to my attention recently, and show that if they continue to release such quality material, their full length will probably fall into the hands of a more proficient, but far less crafty reviewer in the near future.
First off, Morgue Supplier don't sound like an unsigned band. The guitars are rendered as sharply as anything found on the new material Erik Rutan has been pumping out recently, and the drums are nestled snugly in the mix without sounding either too overpowering or synthetic. The riffing is ridiculously fast, and doesn't really pigeonhole the band stylistically. There are technical flourishes thrown about, but the real focus is on intensity, density, and speed. And that's pretty kick-ass, as most of the death metal we get around here is either a touch too technical and self absorbed (Anata, Gorod), or happily retro (name any Stockholm revivalist). Morgue Supplier fall satisfyingly into neither of those categories, and just sound like a bunch of death crazed and speed obsessed deviants that revel in taking each song to terminal velocity, crashing into a brick wall, passing out, throwing up everywhere, and starting over again.
Dynamic, this isn't. However, there are certainly those moments on The End of The World, where Morgue Supplier is playing really fast, and then the drummer will play a fill and they'll start playing retardedly fucking fast. So, y'know, there's that for those of you who like a little cream in your coffee. But, honestly, if you're into stuff like Fleshgrind, Internal Suffering, and other death metal acts who keep their shit snappy and brutal, then check this demo out.
