Ah... the true colors of Delirium shine through with their second demo, Amputation. Finally they've settled into their sound, similar to early Celtic Frost and Asphyx. The production is miles better, but for me, the most notable difference between the first and this second demo was the vocals. Sure, it's the same guy, but he's obviously done some work (or maybe it's just the better production), but either way, these vocals sound much more... disgusting. Old school to the core, and absolutely fitting with the style of music presented here. Very energetic and full of life... delirious almost? Hah.

Most traces of Thrash have pretty much been thrown out the door, and all that's left is sludgy, dreary, plodding doom with an occasional solo. A much more evil sound is also found on Amputation, mainly due to the vocals, and the breakdowns are full of mouth-watering riffs, menacing and morbid in their omnipresent sound. Scratch what I said in the review of the first demo... THIS is Delirium!
