From Iran there is a one-man army by the name of Pooyan Ahmadi who recently unleashed the debut Eloquent Atrocity from brutal death metal act Bloody Sadism. It’s not every day I find myself a promo from Iran so it was with excitement I buried myself in what would come to be a very likable experience.
OK lets get straight to the point, this is good stuff! I didn’t know what to expect coming into this one but it turns out to be a quite fun ride with some twists and turns to the Bloody Sadism which makes it standout somewhat. Sometimes it might sound a bit goofy but then again I think that’s one of the albums strong points to, almost giving me a grindcore feel to it. You just need to listen to the title track “Eloquent Atrocity” to understand what I’m talking about. The only thing I don’t understand one bit is the intro and outro, as far as those goes that was a total waste of five minutes. Could of just have ended it with the killer track “Lucid Dream” and end it on a high note. The mixing could also use a bit of work as I find it being inconsistent, but seeing it’s a debut album plus Pooyan doing everything alone I will let it slip. The drums are also a hit or miss. Either way it’s safe to say fans of brutal death metal will have a good time here and Eloquent Atrocity definitely tries hard to not fall into a generic brutal death metal category. Bloody Sadism needs a bit of work but I enjoy the effort put into this creation and I can see Pooyan only improving with time. A diamond in the rough that already shows promise and gets your head banging.
