Artist: Himiko (@)
Title: Victims of Greed
Format: CD
Label: DTrash Records (@)
Rated: *****
Himiko's at it again, a new release of 13 tracks in the Digital Hardcore, Speedcore, Death Metal, Grindcore, Goregrind, Gabber, and Breakcore mode, and none of them over a minute in length. I get the impression that she's refined what she spewed forth on 'DethNoizzz', and may be taking it to the next level of nastiness. There is an often present squealing/whistling on this album that may not be surprising considering the revolting pig image on the CD cover. The album smacks of total excess, a point I'm sure Himiko is painfully trying to make. I'm not sure how much further she can go in this genre, as much of it is beginning to sound the same. Would have been nice if she threw in something completely different just for shit and giggles (something to make you say, "what the fuck???") but Himiko remains true to form throughout, perhaps too much to appeal to anyone except the fans she already has. If that was the intent, it works, but I think she's going to have to shift gears for the next one if she wants to gain more traction.
