Based on a lyrical concept of the theme "madness" DKDN is delivering a new demo. 4 Tracks in a death metal / thrash / heavy metal style. Brutal vocals, heavy metal style riffs with leads and thrashy drums. Tempo of the songs is in the uptempo region but it has breaks with accelerations. The melody has some catchy hooks and therefor it listens easil...

Dragonsfire - Burning For Metal

With the bandname, title, artwork and songtitles it is obvious for a blind person that this is heavy metal. This German bands uses every cliche in the heavy metal and come with a self financed EP. 5 Tracks in up tempo with clean vocals in a not trained voice, the vocals should be pure and powerful with this kind of metal. Guitarswise it follows the...

Estuary - The Craft Of Contradiction

In 2002 the band Estuary was formed in Cincinnati (USA) and soon recorded a three track demo. In 2003 the band was signed to Ibex Moon Records and the debut "To Exist & Endure" was released and now in 2007 their follow up is released. If you listen to the music and see the band pics the most outstanding element is that the vocalist is a female....

Haemorrhage - Apology For Pathology

Haemorrhage don't need no introduction as they are in the grindcore scene for more than 15 years. I always liked the band with the insane frontman Lugubrious. I met the band with the "Emetic Cult" album and sticked to them. Haemorrhage have the ability to make songs that are carved deep in your mind. Hammer songs that have surigcal precision with e...

Liquid Skull - Abscessive Autopsy

California, USA’s Liquid Skull has an EP out, self released, entitled ABSCESSIVE AUTOPSY, and is certainly a non-album in terms of production value or creative darkness. I will often forgive a band for low-fi recording if their angst is high or their textures are diverse. Liquid Skull has none of these positive attributes. I mean, the EP plays but...

Meat Shits - Give Hate A Chance

Seeing the cover in that comic style offensive drawing, it is funny because it also has been 25 years since John Lennon died. But look for yourself and see more funny things. Or do you find it offensive? Anyway, Meat Shits is a gore porn grind band that put 29 songs on this album. Most of them are short or are intros and mostly dealing with porn (t...

Parental Advisory - Zombie Legion (promo)

Parental Advisory comes from Austria and plays brutal death metal. After 2 demos they found the time right for a full length. Zombie Legion is recorded in 2004 but still not official released. You can't find the complete tracklist on their site!! Strange, huh? Their style is unrelentling, melodic and various. So enough variation in speed, rhythms,...

Rade Massaker - Satanic Zombie Hordes

Jan is a German guy who is doing all the shit by himself. This album is a collection of songs ranging from 2002 till unreleashed. A touch of Autopsy can be tasted. And ofcourse other bands too as you see his picture in the booklet. Primitve zombie death metal with deep vocals and filthy raw guitars in mid tempo based tracks. He should have done som...

Shodaboi - Milf

Very aggressive Hardcore that is the style of Shodaboi. Mixing elements of Death Metal they leave your quite heavy music. The vocal alternates among having torn and guttural, another attraction for the disk. In spite of they be only twenty-two minutes of music is enough to demonstrate the whole potential of Shodaboi. A good band to be heard.

Stickoxydal - Perverted Position Of Interior

Three guys from Belarus (some little country in Eastern Europe) are playing extreme goregrind inspired by Utopie and Gut. It is going from very fast to groovy mid tempo. Vocals are distorted and brutal. The songs are rather short and before you know the blast is over. But it is an album that you easily play again as it is gore and it is catchy, it...

Xenomorph - Necrophilia Mon Amour

Finally the new disc from Dutch death metal band Xenomorph. It almost took 5 years and that is too long guyz!! Anyway, here I have the promo and is it making rounds in my player. This album can be described as a hammer. Top death metal! Double bass drums, grunts with high screams, nailing guitarriffs (too little leads... but the one in track 7 is g...

Armistice - Roots Of Evil

Armistice comes from the south of Germany and is trying to held the flag high of Germans 80 thrash metal. On this second album you hear thrash metal that is played solid with not too raw vocals and the obliged guitarriffing and leads. The kind of thrash metal Armistice is playing is a bit out dated. Back in the 80s it would have been cool but nowad...

Beyond Terror Beyond Grace - Extinction|Salvation

Since the release of Beyond Terror Beyond Grace’s EP in 2005 and this new full length, EXTINCTION|SALVATION, the Aussie band has built its confidence and licked the blurry line between hardcore and metal even cleaner. ‘Tis hard to split those genres asunder in their work. Case in point, a powerful little track of just a minute and a half smack in t...

Calm Insanity - Calm Insanity

From Britian comes this band with their debut. Calm Insanity plays some aggressive metal with classical heavy metal influences but with the technological advances of today. Their sound is raw but not so original. The guitar have hear a like riffs, the vocals are ferocious and the drums pounds. Not bad but no top album. [embed]https://youtu.be/hG...
