Norwegian melodic death metal clan Mindgrinder’s latest sample of sonic excess is an impressive album full of solid death metal fare. While much of the band’s nine tracks sound like the bastard concoction of Testament and Morbid Angel, RIOT DETONATOR’s thrash and burn mindframe grows a bit weary after a while. Despite the grinding instrumental interludes that lead into glorious guitar solos on tracks such as “Concept of Honesty” and the menacing death metal eminence both vocally and percussively throughout, Mindgrinder’s brutal assault is basically done by numbers.
