From Prague, Czech Republic, since 1998 delivering ravishing mixture of grind/death and sometimes quite experimental metal. Oleg “mrtvola” Kamenetski – vocals, Pavel “hjalli” Kuchař – guitar and bass, Tomáš “lesik” Mleziva – guitar and Jarda “mental” Haž – drums, throw in their sick-minded music blender elements from classic monsters such as Napalm Death till twisted turns of Korn and the result is quite impressive. “Nonsense” have grindings, have Korn like dark riffings and screams, but also jazzy cut-downs. It’s a killer track. And well, Alienation Mental have lot of surprises, they do not grinding from the beginning till the end, they knew to colour they music with exciting switches, inspired twists and turns, changing of tempos and approaches from grinding to slow cutting riffs, industrial colours and noise massacres, have some inspired riffs, wrote some good themes and actually have a few very good songs (“Nonsense”, “Indifference”,”Emotions of People 53 Seconds Before the End of the World”, “Follow the Perfecitizen”) not exclusively butchering.
3 out of 4 members – Oleg Kamenetski, Tomáš Mleziva and Jarda Haž – started a new band in January 2011: Perfecitizen (official site, Facebook ) which probably mean the end of the chapter called “Alienation Mental”, but for sure, these guys will delivering under the new moniker same exciting products, actually, how the over 10 minutes of “Follow the Perfecitizen” sounds, the future might be much more exciting.
