Defiled, "Ugliness Revealed"

Japan's Defiled play music reminiscent of newer Cryptopsy. The songs speed by with jarring time changes, annoying high end guitars and nothing to keep the listener from being totally bewildered and lost in the chaos. Sure, some brutal death fans would consider Ugliness Revealed the next best thing to sex, but there's no accounting for taste (this goes for my judgement of the disc as well). To make things worse, the band has chosen to put "intros" between nearly every track on the album (that means there are eight of them in all). Not a single one is interesting, and to make things worse, they break up the disc's intensity, which may be the only thing Defiled has going for it aside from the band name and cover artwork.
