Vomiting Corpses - Coma: The Spheres of Innocence (1995)

   Even though Vomiting Corpses was probably one of the oldest German death metal bands, their first and last full-lenght album came out only when the scene almost faded away already.
   German death metal bands were always interesting as they always tried some alternative ways to show something new, or how they approached the genre a bit differently. This experimenting ambition resulted that most of them sounded somehow weird and genuine compared to the bands of the big scenes. Except that, probably the actual trends had some influence on the band too while they created "Coma: The Spheres of Innocence". On the side of the basic old school style they involved some melodies and technical themes, so the album is like a pile of contrasts. Sometimes it might sound very raw because not all of their unexpected changes were made sophisticated, so it's not an easy album for sure. But the good side is that it's worthy to listen plenty of times, and it will be always able to show something new, some details that might avoided the attention of the listener previously. The fact that there are plenty of details like that to find, is telling about the musical wealthiness and the various influences of the band. An interesting and weird mix of old school and modern styled musickness!
