Since the band formed in 1990, they have issued plenty of split records, as well as two full length albums, without changing the style of music they want to play in any way. Haemorrhage is a very old school goregrind band, clearly taking a heavy influence from earlier Carcass albums. Anatomical Inferno marks the band’s third full length album, which doesn’t sound any different from their previous releases, really.

While Anatomical Inferno may be a very stereotypical album, having just about everything you love, as well as hate, in the whole goregrind field. However, the thing about this album is that the music is tight, and simply kicks ass. Take “Treasures Of Anatomy” for example. While the song features some rather generic grindcore riffs and vocals you would come to expect, such as a rhaspy vocal style and snarling gutteral vocal effect used over the rhaspy vocals, the music is simply fast paced, heavy, and yes, even catchy. This really helps by the band utilizing a background vocalist to help with the flow of the material.

Another thing to point out would be the variance in music. While you have songs that really abuse the blast beats, you also have songs like “Putritorium” that mix things up a bit with a sort of march feel to the song a little more then half way into the song thanks to the drum work, and some great grindcore breakdown-like moments that will make you want to mosh, grind, or punch babies, whatever the case may be. But, even with all of that said, there isn’t too much variety in the songs. After a few spins, the album will more then likely start to grow old, but tracks like “Putritorium” and “Dawn In The Rotting Paradise” will make you come back and listen to it many more times further down the line. But, then there are songs like “Witness Of Postmortem Violence” which, while a very heavy song, are just a bit too typical musically, and “Set The Morgue On Fire” which will turn you off of the album once more.

Anatomical Inferno is a solid goregrind release that will make fans of the old school days of metal happy. With not change in sight for this band’s musical performances, you can be sure that if you enjoyed prior Haemorrhage albums, you’re going to like this release. It’s a very solid album with many pulse pounding riffs, but plenty of tracks that sound like you heard them already a few tracks ago, or a few years ago on other goregrind releases.
