Hungarian quartet Ektomorf’s blatant lifting from Sepultura/ Soulfly is so obvious it’s distressing on the band’s latest offering INSTINCT. Utilizing the same low-end heaviness and vocal growls employed by Max Cavalera and company to death throughout the entire 12-track release doesn’t showcase the band to be much else besides a third-rate ripoff of an incendiary sound. While tracks like “Fuck You All” and “Show Your Fist” are rabble-rousing numbers guaranteed to rip heads off, they went down way better when you first heard them…on ROOTS or CHAOS AD. Emitting an admirable delivery with zero creativity, Ektomorf need to broaden their musical influence scope before they get written off as just another knockoff.
