Appalachia's space rock powerhouse is back with another beautiful album dripping with southern-tinged darkness. Like a rabid wolf letting out its last howl before laying down to rot; this album is like a intravenous injection of black ink. It'll leave you simultaneously suffocated and revitalized. Putting this on is a lot like walking the line between life and death; only here you can really hear or understand what lies just ahead. Turn it up LOUD. This release is meant to shake your rafters clean.
tl;dr: This album is the sonic equivalent to losing your only child.
Insanely good Technical Death Metal from the days of yore (a bit of a theme on here as of late). Discovered these guys rather recently and I was blown away by the perfect production. The drums and riffs meld together into one seamless machine,only to swerve in and out of themselves like autonomous parts in a grand machine. Unique song writing combined with a penchant for successfully blending the sound of Morbid Angel, Pestilence and Black Metal (esque) vocals. One of the best things I've heard in a while.
DID I MENTION IT HAS A FUCKING XENOMORPH FROM THE AWESOME AvP COMIC BOOK SERIES ON THE COVER?
Classic Death Metal distilled into the perfect mix of technicality and riffcraft. High-flying guitar solos weave in and out of perfectly razor-sharp riffs. Buzzsaw guitars tear in and out of your ears while the occasional atmospheric keyboard line adds itself to the over all majesty. A quintessential release in every sense of the word.
While Monstrosity isn't original by any stretch of the human imagination, they are a force to be reckoned with in the world of Death Metal. Their potent concoction of Morbid Angel-styled riffs and powerful drums lead with a vocal attack by the monstrous death metal icon known simply as Corpsegrinder. Technicality is thankfully set aside when needed and songwriting takes a huge priority with this band. Expect face-rippingly fast songs with hooks and riffs galore. Blast this fuck'a 'till the neighbor's daughter has a miscarraige.
Just discovered this album a few nights ago through YouTube. I feel a bit late to the party but I have to say; this band combines everything I love about Death Metal into one sleek package. Impeccable musicianship, great dynamic vocals, songcrafting skill and some pretty nice lyrical themes. A brutal attack from start to finish; this album will tear you apart.
My Death/Doom band Anthropophagus has just put together our first semi-acceptable recording. Due to a shitty mic speaker the vocals are impossible to hear and due to poor positioning, the mix is very bass heavy. Other than that it's a somewhat decent interpretation of the first song off our upcoming EP. Enjoy
Cephalic Carnage's new release is possibly their most impressive. Combining the gargantuan Death Metal riffage of Immolation with the jazzcentric Math/Grind they're known for with the odd Doom/Sludge bit here and there; this band has created an unstoppable facecrusher that will zap your brain and smoke your bones. Pure fucking Sci-Fi evil.
