Germany’s Eternal Torture may be a relatively new group, but they already have two full-length albums under their belt, and still has most of their original line-up. Bassist Andreas Pape, drummer Alex Neuberger, and lead guitarist Matthias Trippelsdorf return alongside new rhythm guitarist Alex Artes and vocalist Andi Brecht, both brought into the fold in 2011, to bring their fans ten brutal new songs that make up Lacerate the Global Hate, their latest album being handled by Noiseheadrecords. This follows 2011’s Dissanity, which was issued through the lesser known Thunderblast Records, and didn’t even seem to be acknowledged much by the press. So, is this new recording something that will captivate the Deathcore audience, or is it just more of the same?

Lacerate the Global Hate is a bit of a unique recording. To put it simply, some of the material here sounds as though Hypocrisy took their modern sound and altered it to fit the Deathcore genre. “Hate Prevails” has some catchy Death Metal riffs throughout that will instantly grab you by the throat, but not with any sort of vice grip. The chorus features some melodic riffs that really enrich the song, giving a darker atmosphere that is a lot stronger and catchier, even feeling a bit oppressive. The bass guitar that hits after the first solo, however, is a bit wasted. While it’s well done, it just isn’t too impressive. “For the Masses” carries that dim environment as well, having a real catchy performance that is simply too short. The breakdowns last longer, and also has some additional Electronica effects that make them a little richer and more enjoyable than most on here.

“Wardrones” has some additional synths thrown in throughout that give it a less melodic Science Fiction vibe. The riffs are rather simple, but have some enthusiasm behind them, finding the blasting drum beats dealing out the most punishment when not catering to rather slow breakdowns and random builds of a steady drum beat on the snares and random guitar notes similar to what you might expect from Oceano just to name one. “Dresscoat Meat” kicks things off with some explosive music that sounds crisp and very digital, holding a nice subtle bite that the typical distortion on the mid-range shouting doesn’t quite compliment. The gutturals that hit prior to the breakdown, however, sound pretty menacing despite more typical effects being utilized to make them impossible to understand, and sometimes hard to take seriously. The song doesn’t really go anywhere, but when the breakdown ends you’re met with some catchy traditional Death Metal riffs that are impossible not bang your head to.

It isn’t that Lacerate the Global Hate is a bad album, but rather it’s just pretty boring. Eternal Torture present a copy-and-paste Deathcore foundation that nearly every band and their mother is currently performing, and just don’t do it well enough to keep the listener alert. Many songs go nowhere, the breakdowns often end up vast and empty, what catchy riffs exist are few and far between, and the vocals sometimes sound horrible thanks to the distortion, or even the amount of enthusiasm that causes a strain that turns them into what sounds like pure gibberish despite what the lyrics really are. But, aside a crisp production quality that works to give the music a decent bite, the band does get one thing absolutely right, and it’s the often oppressive melodic chorus that shows up once in a while. Honestly, if Eternal Torture could put more melody into their standard Deathcore riffs, they could really have something spectacular and unique going for them. But, in the end, Lacerate the Global Hate is a struggle to stay too attentive to, and ends up a very long thirty-seven minutes.
