Full Length Review: Neurosurgery "Invitation To Die" (CDN Records) by Devin J. Meaney

Band: Neurosurgery
Location: Helinski
Country: Finland
Genre: Death metal
Full length: Invitation To Die
Format: Digital album
Label: CDN Records (Canada)
Release date: July 16, 2021
Hailing from Finland this band spits up this 2020 release with as much aggression and hostility as a starved coyote desperately looking for its next meal. 8 tracks of vicious death metal are brought together to make for an album that is more than worthy of a listen or four!
Vocally I am reminded of early GUT or Mucupurulent but musically this is much more technical. The guitars are tight and the percussion is immaculate. I snagged this album on cassette from CDN records and it was released directly from the label. The packaging and insert are professional grade and the cassette itself is a clear/blue with pro-level labeling.
I copped this in a mystery lot (I got 4 tapes for 25 dollars shipping included) and I can say that I am pleased overall with this. For just a few bucks “Invitation to Die” is a supreme blast of heaviness and it would make a great addition to the collections of cassette collectors worldwide. And hey…if you get this in other formats that is cool too! Even if you don’t wish to buy this try to find a stream online and give it a listen—and as always send the band some kind words and support! -Devin J. Meaney
