Blessed In Sin - Par Le Sang Du Christ (Opus Luciferi)
This is the second album from one of the oldest BM bands in France. Hailing from 1993 they released 3 demos, the first album "Melancholia" and now their new one "Par Le Sang..". An album full of dark, strong and facinating songs. A lot of variation in the songs, fast parts that are interrupted but slow mystical spheres. Some lyrics are in French to...
CIAFF - The Southern Command Of Violence
Italy not only known from Pizza and Mobsters but now a point on the map for brutal maniacs CIAFF. A mixture of brutal death, hardcore and extreme hip hop. CIAFF delivers highly structured crossover songs that makes you jump, slam, sing along etc. Including a cover from Blur! Enrico (from the brutal core band Undertakers) is doing the vocals, Butch...
Zorn - Schwarz Metall
Not an original album title but it gives you an idea of what to expect. An ear assault with fast drumming, infernal vocals, venomous guitar leads, aggression in the vein of Beherit, Darkthrone and old Gogoroth. Zorn is a german band with german lyrics. Some members also have other projects running but Zorn is a serious band where they all can spew...
Gory Blister - Brand New Promo
Like the title says it is a brand new promo with three songs. After their MCD "Cognitive Sinergy" and their full length "Art Bleeds" this is a continuing progression of their medolic technical death attack. A little in the style of Death but not a copy! Not strange that they supported Death in their country Italy. These three songs show that Gory B...
Manipulated Slaves - The Legendary Black Jade
From the land of the rising sun comes Manipulated Slaves. Being around since 1994 they play aggressive melodic metal in the vein of the 80's. With guest vocals of Johan Liiva (ex Arch Enemy). This is their second album with 9 tracks of melodic extreme metal with great guitar leads, double bass pounding and clear vocals. If you like the 80's metal w...
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...
