In 2011 Anatomy of I released Substratum, their debut album containing ten thrashy death metal tracks. The trio (Michael Dorrian, Dirk Verbeuren, and Steve Di Giorgio) pull off some heavy instrumentals and dirty growls all pushed along well by Dirk’s speedy drumming. Overall the songs are punchy and get the heart pumping, the only objection I have however, is that the recording features poor quality bass tracks.
Death metal fans should definitely try purchasing a physical copy of Substratum as it comes in a jakebox which just looks bad-ass! Also, as previously mentioned, the legendary Dirk Verbeuren drums on this record, so metal fans already know this will be a worthy acquisition.
