We all have a side to us where sometimes we just crave aggressiveness and unrelenting brutality in our music. These are the times when brutal death metal bands come in handy. In today’s scene, the listener is spoilt for choice as the sheer number of brutal death bands have only grown in number over the past years. The latest addition to the barrage of albums of this variety is ‘Observations of Humanity’ by the long standing band Coathanger Abortion from Tennessee, USA. It is a tough task to make an album that stands out in a very competitive market. Unfortunately in this case, the band’s recently released second full length only goes to show that the band still has a long way to go.
