Bestial Invasion – “Trilogy: Prisoners of Miserable Fate”


Bestial Invasion’s “Trilogy: Prisoners of Miserable Fate” drapes itself in much squealing guitar and falsetto screams, but underneath all the high pitches and what have you, is there anything of substance? “Trilogy” has some quick fretwork and the singer displays an impressive range and attack  but these songs just don’t work for me. They are missing a cohesive identity, instead opting to go all over the map. It feels like they took the Burroughs approach and wrote some songs, cut those songs into pieces, tossed the pieces around (insert heroin at any point it feels suitable) and then busted out the scotch tape and set to work rebuilding. The main thrust of these songs tells me that it’s a thrash album, but then you have these little interludes of audio clips and ambient noise that seem out of place and stop whatever might have been building dead in its tracks. I’m all for experimentation and just being weird  but this just doesn’t tickle me the right ways.  ”Caligula: Salacious Age” is probably the best thing this EP has going for it as it presents the most cohesive feeling song, but when the choices are so thin that isn’t much of an endorsement.
