Since the release of 'Stop The Bleeding' it seems Tournequet's lineup has been completed. Erick Mendez has joined Gary Lenaire on guitars and Victor Macius has grown his sideboards and picked up the bass. I loved Tournequet's first album once I'd got used to the extreme vocals. "Would I feel the same about P surgery?" I asked myself as the laser hit track one. No problem. Tournequet retain their position as Christendom's finest thrash team. And they ring some changes too. "Ifficium Defunctorium" is probably the first true doom tune to be performed by an all-Christian band and it makes my knees freeze and my liver quiver. The rest of the songs are more thrash orientated but each with a different feel, even to the extreme of rap (guests PID) on "Spireless". Another song to repeatedly listen to is "Broken Chromosones", the middle section is unbelievably emotional. A final bonus is the vocals on 'Psycho Surgery' are easier to listen to than album 1 so there's nothing to grate on your ears (Editor: You must be joking!). All in all an excellent thrash album cut by an excellent band.
