Vile hails from Florida (U.S.A.) and I don’t know if the guys took this moniker due to the release of Cannibal Corpse’s Vile album in 1998, but I think the band released their first album Stench of the Deceased at the same time. That was for the little story I call “introduction to a review”.
Depopulate is Vile’s second full length album and this album will definitely not revolutionize the world of brutal death metal. Depopulate is indeed an album in the sickest tradition of releases such as Cannibal Corpse’s entire discography or bands such as Malevolent Creation, Sickening Gore and Suffocation. Total sickened brutal gore death metal. Although being a fan of Cannibal Corpse myself, I am not really fond of that death metal genre. I'd rather listen to heavy and groovy death metal bands such as Grave, Asphyx and Fleshcrawl, even though I really like once in while headbanging on fast brutal Cannibal Corpse’s material. Vile’s second release didn’t raise more than a a considerated attention from me. In fact I found this album to be rather boring after the first couple of spins, failing to keep my interest on the subject, and that’s not a good point. Depopulate could be one of those album you are satisfied with listening to while doing other business, but it’s not the kind of album I would listen to while playing some computer games or while having friends over at home, but I could see myself listening to them while paying the f***ing monthly bills!!
As a matter of fact, although I consider this album to be a below average brutal death metal album, I strongly believe those of you who are totally into the genre might definitely appreciate it. After all, this is just my personal opinion and I never ask anyone to follow it. I just find it useful to practice my English skills.
