Biography

Formed in 1992 by guitarist and vocalist, Dan Martinez, and bassist, Matt Widener, Cretin was the Santa Cruz Mountains' answer to the wave of death metal and grind that was infesting the scene. They spent two years with a multitude of different drummers and ultimately put the band on hold to focus on other things. Cretin laid dormant while Widener joined gore metal band, Exhumed, in 1994 ... Read more in Amazon's Cretin Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Cretins unite!!!! August 8, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The product description that Amazon has above me is actually pretty spot-on. This cd is a kickin' blast of death metal/grind that flies by like a leafblower attached to your head. Non-stop pummeling is the name of the game here and these guys are quite ready to go toe-to-toe with some of the seasoned veterans of this genre. A nice twist is the odd lyrical content, spinning yarns about some psycho mofos and the evil deeds they perform. It all goes hand in hand with the insane artwork in the packaging making this a kind of concept album. In a good way. In a brutal, "freaky" way. This shoulda been the soundtrack for that old Troma film "Redneck Zombies".

4.0 out of 5 stars "Freakery," indeed October 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD
There are a lot of new grindcore bands that sound old-school, but when you stop and think about it, almost all of those bands (i.e. Aborted, Impaled, County Medical Examiners, etc.) are Carcass clones. Now, there's nothing wrong with showing homage to Carcass because they were a very important and influential grindcore band. But they were hardly the genre's originators. Thus, it is really refreshing when a band like Cretin storms onto the music scene. This Santa Cruz-based trio "defer to the masters": Repulsion and Napalm Death. In fact, their long-awaited debut, 2006's "Freakery" (which was delayed multiple times due to other musical projects and the bassist enlisting in the Marines) could be the long-lost follow up to "Horrified."

This is the kind of album that will ruin your appetite. The musicianship on display here is very tight, but not overly technical or complex. The drums are pounding and clattering at all times -- former Exhumed skinsman Col Jones drives the rhythms with an endless stream of frantic, hyper-kinetic, trigger-free blast beats and cymbal crashes. And frontman Dan Martinez's filth-caked, splatterhouse riffs blaze and steamroll full-speed ahead while he bellows truly disquisting lyrics from the bottom of his gut. Also of note, the production is a good suit for the music, because it is extremely raw, dirty, gritty, and abrasive (most black metal bands dream of having a sound like this!). Yes, Cretin are completely one-dimensional, but truth be told, that flaw is actually part of the band's fun and charm!

Cretin keep the gas pedal floored throughout this disc's thirty-minute running time. As a result, many of the tracks blend together, and almost none of them stick with the listener after they're done playing.

4.0 out of 5 stars An explosive ride that won't let up. November 8, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you like fast, heavy, and just plain unrelenting grindcore, than this album is for you! It's incredably fast, and it's just plain intense. It's actually kinda hard to sit through, because this damn thing has no melody at all, it's all just in your face screaming "I'm gonna disembowl you!" And If you don't watch out it will probably make your body collapse into itself just from the pure anger and power. Which is a good thing.
Alright this CD is short, clocking in at just about under 30 minutes, which is perfect considering the pounding you'll recieve in that short amount of time. You'll come out shaking, wondering "What the @#$% just happened?"
Well if you like brutality than this is your CD. Also it has some pretty halarious, although cringe inducing lyrics. So Enjoy!
