Note: I’m proud to announce this collaboration from journalist René Cruz, who is mastermind from Inquisidor 71 Blog. He helped us to review this Viennese album for Grand Sounds Promotion.

Ok, it’s my first contact with these Norwegian demons and I’m pretty excited due high quality of fast black-thrash metal I find here. All tracks share the same vibe of obscurity in fast guitar riffs, chaotic sections and cathartic vocals. Continue reading
Yep, I was right. Second vomit from this Spanish entity is even more obscure, more doomed, and more morbid (if there is a darker category for extreme music)
Wow! From time to time post man let these gems into zombie mail. This is nothing but an authentic metal album with roots in numerous places, but the central idea is very well developed, musically speaking.
Aaaaargh!! What a piece of destructive speed metal!! Formed by members of well-known bands in Chicago, like Kommandant, Stone Magnum, etc, this band denotes in debut album true worship to old glories of fast metal in 80’s.
I have different feelings about this album. For one side, these Argentinean guys are into the new wave of thrash metal highly influenced by old bands in America, like Nuclear Assault, Exodus, Anthrax, which I started to feel sick about.
Of course I remember this band from New York, as I read some interviews or something in many fanzines of late 90’s. It’s a gang that belongs to the old wave of brutal entities from that area, and created a really good debut album called “Prophecies Foretold” in 1998, but later they disappeared for years.
Awesome! Now, my neck is broken because I tried to headbang with this hyper-complex death metal from Costa Rica. All tracks are extremely crooked, with tons of guitar riffs, fast scales, and atypical musical arrangements.
This is how true legends come back to grab the red and bloody throne of death metal, these days. It’s a band founded in 1985 and I have to confess I didn’t heard about it until now.
Terror From Hell Records
Well, I’m fan of this cryptic and obscured Italian entity. They have already developed a unique sound, and every release has an own personality.
