I had to listen to this CD several times before the review, and I must say I have different emotions about it. This is a very melodic and aggressive form of death metal with some death-core and thrash elements, and deep touches of modernity in the entire album. I’m not really into this kind of metal music, but I admit that these Bulgarian musicians called my attention because of high quality.
Great! It’s another cool addition to this blog. Nothing less than a very well-conceived thrash/death metal band from Montenegro, a country I really don’t know much about its metal scene, but seems like they have deep knowledge in underground extreme music.
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.
INFANT DEATH “Violent Rites”
Apocalyptic Empire Records
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
NECROVEN “Primordial Subjugation”
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)
+MROME+ “Noetic Collision on the roof of hell”
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.
LETHAL SHÖCK “Evil Aggressor”
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.
TOXICA “Ahogados en contaminación”
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.
DEHUMANIZED “Beyond the Mind”
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.
INHUMAN “Conquerors of the New World”
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.
