Desolator review at Zombie Ritual Zine

DESOLATOR “Unearthly Monument”

Hellthrasher Productions

I think this is a perfect example of what Swedish death metal has reached after all that massive attack of clones of “Left hand Path” sound. Don’t misunderstand me, these motherfuckers based in Stockholm have high musical skills and they have released an excellent debut album full of darkness, bad blood and deadly guitar riffs. I really liked this ominous stench running in every drop of blood, and the band knows how to create poisonous miasmas through aggressive lines. Another aspect to underline is the excellent production which sounds totally organic and direct. Music sound aggressive, obscured and with some traces of thrash metal, so the result gives a quite necromantic perspective of death metal music, powerful and atrocious. If you ask me, this band has a great personality forged in black flames and necrotic roots. My favorite is the last track called “Antimortem Autopsy” which is an excellent piece of morbid death metal ala early Grave, early Unleashed, etc. Also I find some discrete elements rooted in Epic sounds and Doom miasmas, and all the shit give effective results on the music. For me this is another discovery of the year. – Victor Varas
