GRAVEYARD GHOUL – “Slaughtered – Defiled – Dismembered”

GFY Productions

The German epitome of raw and rude death metal music is back with this new album. And they didn’t moved from initial style: this is a crude form of creepy death metal full of rancid guitars, cathartic moments and rawness.

Album Review ARKANA CODE Brutal Conflict

ARKANA CODE “Brutal Conflict”

Metal Scrap Records

This is a good death metal album with high octane arrangements and very complex structures. Coming from Italy, these guys released a demo in 2010 before this debut full length, but seems like they practiced hours and hours behind rehearsal room.

Album Review DOOMED Anna

Doomed cover artwork

DOOMED “Anna”

Solitude Productions

Finally I found a strong candidate for my list of best releases I reviewed in 2017, although this album is from 2016.  I can describe this like a step forward of death/doom metal genre, as this is forged in real obscured and oppressive atmospheres, but fueled by huge progressive elements and high octane sections, with music skills and good taste.

EUFOBIA

Wizard

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.

Album Review DEHUMANIZED Beyond the Mind

DEHUMANIZED “Beyond the Mind”

Comatose Music

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.
