Yattering - Live Extermination Review
Yattering's past albums have contained some of the most crazy music known in metal. Yattering's bizarre style of technical death metal seemed so complex that it would seem impossible to play perfectly live, but these crazy guys can pull it off, and "Live Extermination" is proof of that.
Yattering have always been known to play insane music, but hearing these tunes live is just nuts. Every band member stands out and puts on a delightful show. The guitar work is beyond great. Trying to comprehend the notes these guys can play along with the solos is almost impossible. The drumming performance is just as good as the guitar work. The drumming is played incredibly fast with these complicated time signatures. I was blown away of how technical these guys play on "Live Extermination!" The vocal work is okay. Svierszcz's growls are pretty hard to understand and a little faint, but is still okay.
The material played on "Live Extermination" is a nice treat for these fans. Yattering plays a healthy dose of songs from their first three albums along side some covers. The covers add some color to the album. The cover of Slayer's "Dittohead" is played perfectly from start to finish. The only thing that is somewhat irritating is the speed of "Dittohead." Yattering plays it so fast, it's very easy to get lost in the blaring guitars and the vocals. The cover of Brutal Truth's "Ill Neglect" is also pretty interesting. "Ill Neglect" is also played extremely fast and is pretty enjoyable.
Not only is this a good live album, it marked the end of an era. Soon after the release of "lll," Yattering unfortunately disbanded. "Live Extermination" is a great way to remember this insane band. If you enjoy technical death metal, this is the live album for you.
