      Disadvantages

      An interesting mix of cold, mechanical death metal and grind.

      So far as I am aware, the term 'Yattering' refers to a mischeivous and malevolent demon that may or may not be a hallucination of its long-suffering and tormented human quarry in horror writer Clive Barker's 1984 short story 'The Yattering and Jack'.

      Polish band Yattering do justice to their moniker through the psychologically-unhinged-sounding, jazzy and deliberately disjointed death metal in which they specialise. The Giger-esque cover art is suitably disturbing too, and in keeping with the album title 'Genocide', depicting a distorted and emaciated figure draped over a number of mutated offspring and wired up to some murky and indistinct bio-mechanical machinery, with what looks like a concentration-camp fence looming ominously in the background.

      There are numerous similarities to be found with fellow Poles Decapitated here, as like Decapitated, Yattering's music merges chugging and clinical-sounding riffs with periods of furious blasting, although Yattering's songs have much more of a bouncy, grind-like feel to them, constantly lurching forward and stopping dead across each bar, combining Decapitated's sound with the jazz-influenced song-structures of Insision and the dirty-sounding, perversely melodic, thrash-influenced riffing of early Deicide. There are some enjoyable but unspectacular Deicide-like unrestrained melodic solos throughout as well, whereas the coarse and emotionless growled vocals and pummelling and clattering drums are again reminiscient of Decapitated.

      Whilst nothing outstanding, 'Genocide' is an interesting and vaired listen with some great riffs, although it could have done without the unnecessary song intros/interludes consisting of silly taunts and general messing about that crop up throughout. This is a criticism of no great importance however, and 'Genocide' remains well worth look for fans of Deicide, Insision, Cryptopsy and Decapitated, especially as you can pick it up on amazon for around under a fiver delivered.
