Melechesh - As Jerusalem Burns Al'Intisar
This is the first release from Melechesh originally released in 1996 but now released as a digipack with two bonus tracks and a CDROM track. When you know their second hymn Djinn you know what to expect only more primitive. Melechesh plays BM with influences from the old stories of Mesopotamia. Technical furious BM with a lot af variety in the song...
Jeel - As Morning Turns To Day
Maybe the name JEEL does not ring a bell but when you knwo that the started out as JegErEnLampe you now know where the name comes from. Having their debut "Dying Dreams" I kow what to expect only this album is more mature. Death Metal in an intense and raw energy, mostly mid tempo with 2 fast track (and my favs). Jeel is a band that can climb the s...
Morbid Savouring - Autopsy Lust
The first release of the Spanish label Motorsierra. And what of a release. This is 22 minutes of catchy old school gore grind. The began as a funny noiseband but developed as a gore grind band. The play in the vein of Impetigo, Regurgitate. That is the reason they appear on both tribute CDs of these two bands. The songs are interrupted with spoken...
Typhoid - Ruptured Self Control
Pure brutal sickness! Although this is a release from 1999 it still is very heavy and brutal. This is a release I still play a lot of the intense hammering and deep vocals. Great emphasis on the guitar sound. A must have for sure. I also got a 2001 promo containing 5 tracks and shwing what the band is doing now. Well I can tell you that things a...
Funebris - Triumph Of The Everlasting Fire
Here is the debut CD from the uncompromising BM band from Germany. After a few demos, which made a path in the underground, it is time to spread their aggression to a bigger audience. Nine tracks of raw, rough, satanic, war that are pounding and tormenting your black head. Forget keyboards and make yourself up for the bavarian war.
Nomed - Promotional Demo 2001
A new CD Demo from this French metal thrashers. Slightly different from the older material, more techical, variety. So I would say it is better. Fast songs opening the CD and have a restpoint with the third song “Metal Quest”. But after that they go ahead again. If you like the 8o thrash metal in a modern style you got to check them out.
Purulent - Garavito's Pedophilia Tales
A new piece of Colombian brutal death. Truely sick in the vein of Eternal Suffering, Brodequin and Putrilage. Ultra deep vocals and pounding beats. This time they made an ode to Luis Alfredo Garavito, a sick massmurderer from Colombia who liked to kill young boys and put their penis in their mouth. Sick person to fit the sick sound. The production...
Instinct - Day Dreams
A young band coming from Germany. They play a kind of rock metal. Catchy, rocking most of the times but the singer is annoying me from the beginning. The songs are well built (double bass at the ending of the opening track). A lot of variety in songs. They can learn a lot but this is no false start.
Mom's Favorite Dudes - Beschissen Ist Geprahlt
Arsch! The cover is not I want to see. Where are the female groupies? Well, it is the music that cunts. After see the cover you can see that FUN is written in capitals. And that is what it is. I want to see the band on stage! They call themsleves King of the Pogo. They don’t play punk (tooloud), metal (to soft). So difficult to put a label on it. T...
Vrykolakas - Vrykolakas 2000
First CD release of this brutal death metal band out Singapore. Most of the songs are in uptempo with some fast parts. The vocals are mixed a bit to far in front but you don't understand a word he sings, haha. But a nice deep grunt thou. Enough tempo changes in the songs, double bass, two vocals, nice guitarriffs. Although I miss the guitar leads a...
Deepred - Prophetic Luster
From Finland comes this five piece to attack us. Formed in 1999 they bring the early 90’s brutallity. Prophetic Luster is their second album and it is brutal! From second 1 the deep vocals, pounding drums and crushing riffs punish your ears for 31 minutes. Def a brutal death band with some thrash influences from the past. Recommended!
Gorguts - From Wisdom To Hate
What can I say to this band? Playing from the early nineties Gorguts is a well respective band that plays death metal with great innovations and memorable song structures. No second you are bored. A must have.
Fleshgrind - The Seeds of Abysmal Torment
Your flesh will surely grind with this release of the band from 1993. The second album is faster and more chaotic thean their debut “Destined for Defilement”. Brutality is a simple statement for this album. Maximum brutality should fit better. If you don’t listen to this one you should be ashamed!
The Traceelords - Sex, Money, Rock'n'Roll
The debut album from the German party band The Traceelords. The girl on the cover is def not the real Tracy but it is all about sex. On this CD you will hear 13 songs in heavy rock'n'roll way. Heavy ones like the opening song, F**cking grow up. Slowers with See you when I see you and My kinda girl. Including two great covers, one from Boney-M (!!)...
The Project Hate - When We Are Done, Your Flesh Will Be Ours
Second album by Kenth Philipson, the multi instrumentalist. It is not a project but with two vocalist, Jörgen Sandström (ex Entombed and Grave) and Mia Stahl, it is a real band feeling. Ten tracks of brutal gothic death. Great song structures with two different voices, tempo changes. An album with a great impact and a good production by Miesko Tala...
