Strange Death/Thrash from Winnipeg.
Okay, Canada is really a country where people know how to make music, but there’s always a exception to the rule, and Psychotic Gardening is exactly that!
The CD Hymnosis has a good production and good intentions but as you may know hell is paved with them.
If I have to classify the sound it’s like a strange hybrid of death and doom that was wrongly made.
The music is lackluster, the compositions are short of creativity and the CD is boring as hell.
Songs like Defile, Garden Raiding and Searing Cital are endless and it’s really hard to sit through the whole opus because the band just keep on playing their strange compositions with riffs stolen from other bands but although it seems that they’re not trying to ape anyone, they are going from nothing to nowhere.
Open Casket tries to be more eh, progressive as to say. It has its moments but as the penultimate song it’s not enough to save the whole album. It has a strange solo and that’s that… no wait, it’s a DEATH cover totally unrecognizable. How could they DESTROY one song of my favorite bands EVER? Now it’s personal. Ugh!
Psychotic Gardening is a band that has the money and technology at their side but still they miss the whole point of making heavy metal music. Their vocalist filled the spot of vocalist of Broken Hope in an European incursion, so what? It sounds more like people kidding with their instruments and in a “metal band” than a serious and relevant work. I pass.
Hymnosis is going to be released on May 13th and it is going to be Self-Released.
