Septycal Gorge's second full-length "Erase The Insignificant" is pretty much exactly what you would expect from a modern Italian brutal death metal band. It's ultra-brutal, ultra-technical & not very high on originality. In fact, it's pretty much an exact replica of the faster early Suffocation material. Having said that, this is not necessarily a bad thing in a genre where brutality & technique is far more important than innovation. The production could've done with a bit of work. The kick drum is seriously over-clicky & the snare sounds like an upside-down ice-cream container. The guitars come off a little muddy too but overall you can hear all of the riffs which is pretty amazing given the incredible technicality of the arrangements. There are no guitar solos on show here. Just pounding, slamming death metal of the most extreme nature. The vocals are super-deep & remind me of "Tomb Of The Mutilated"-era Chris Barnes (Cannibal Corpse). Not a bad effort but could do with some more originality & a bit better production next time.
