Incubator - McGillroy the Housefly (1992)

   Incubator debuted as an ordinary death metal band with "Symphonies of Spiritual Cannibalism". It was stunning old school death music and lyrics that focused on insanity.
  On "McGillroy the Housefly" they tried to extend this preferred topic, to express the most absurd insane issues by the vocal style and musically too. To create something complex like that in music to be expressive and impressive the same time isn't easy for sure, but we can say that Incubator succeeded. The usual basic death metal riffs gave some ground to melodies and classical heavy metal themes too, which were necessary to create a contrast and to give possibilities for sharp and sudden changes. Like to illustrate unpredictable and exaggerated mood swings. These practics are going on parallely at the vocals too. The narrative style and hysterical screaming creates some confused and stressful impression, until brutally deep growling interrupts and pushes the chaos more forward. It's far more than simple attention seeking. The heaviness of the album shows up by paying attention on the lyrics too.
