Miseo The Dead Will Predominate

MISEO “The Dead Will Predominate”

Blacksmith Records

This is another interesting debut release and now we move on the map to land of Germany. We have here a power trio, full of musical skills and making corrosive death metal riffs. We are not talking about childish wannabes. The band is commanded by the old Swedish style with some particular sprinkles of brutality. Actually, all tracks sound solid, rotten and with great guitar arrangements. Also, the work of drummer sounds really aggressive and full of resources. No matter if the song claims for energetic sections or mid-pace sections, this guy plays consistent and hard. My favorite track is “Death List” which belongs to a sinister side of the genre. Rhythm section is excellent and it has different layers, perfectly tied with drum bass. All in all, this is a great four tracks EP you will enjoy if you are familiar with the most ominous, obscured and brutal side of the genre. – Victor Varas

ARROGANZ “kaos.kult.kreation”

Blacksmith Records

If you ask me when I’m on my 5 min. of my pissed of metal warrior attitude, I’d say that this is another blackened metal band which steps on the death metal territory. This is a mix which unfortunately has been heard frequently these days, and not always is effective. But this German folks tried to reinterpretet the spirit of both genres, and delivered this monster, forged into obscurity, furious atmospheres and red blood. Actually, they have cool ideas on guitar department, as they have the willing of transmit shadowed lines beyond twisted melodies. A good example is “Beyond Slavery”, which is a violent piece of black metal and managed to the top of rawness. Another aspect to underline is vocal’s work. It’s a fucking bastard with thick roots into oldish death metal, and he definitely knows the business. My favorite is “Demand the Dark”, a vertiginous piece of metal which delivers a punkish stench on every compass. Vocalist work plays a good character in the chaos, and denotes a quite experienced throat with good arrangements. This is an interesting album coming from Germany. – Victor Varas



RITUAL KILLING (Germany) Review

Ritual Killing New tribe Review at Zombie Ritual Zine


Blacksmith Records

I really like when new bands manage to create distinct topics in a production, and made clear what they want musically speaking, from the start. In the case of these young motherfuckers, the roots are strong and denote a lot of cerebral work behind the rehearsal room. The music is compact, and sounds really good as they mixed violent thrash metal riffs with guttural vocals, and added interesting elements coming from different sources and exotic instruments, such as Timbales, Djembe and a Didgeridoo. The result is quite effective, and also, they have a huge musical knowledge to add a Latin-American fresh touch to the production. I liked the mix, but I most liked the metal side of this, like the solid guitar riffs on the first section of “Deadly Thinking” (a great mid pace song, forged in acid, deep feelings and old school sounds) or the excellent “Blood Cops”, which is a punkish song, performed with violence and rage. This is an interesting album coming from the new generation of German metal, and is fed by new and unorthodox elements. Recommended for thrash metal listeners, looking for new sides of the genre. – Victor Varas
