(Swe) Rakapitalism Lp’04. PUTRID FILTH CONSPIRACY.
the barriers of pain and face the ass-kicking energy! Fucking shit!!
ILLDAD is a quite impressive Crustcore D-beat band that rose
above the amount of average Crustcore stuffs I downloaded to kick
my ass from my mourning Death metal chapel of ghouls! Pure fucking
simple Crustcore riding on the ass kicking way of the good old D-Beat,
with touches of raw simple Hardcore and a good dose of emotional
distress riffs that could remind of ANANDA or HIS HERO IS GONE (??).
I don't like all these newschool kind of core bands, because they're
all abusively wanking on technicality, crap breaking complexity,
abusive inefficient discordances and gay grooves... but ILLDAD has
enough punch to please me! They're at the right frontier between
good old Crust and more modern riffings, but always following a
cool "right in your face" enough way!
is powerful/ The bas guitar is corroded and rrroooaaarrring, the
guitars are powerful and chaotic enough (kinda like some DISFEAR
but with more vitriol!), and the vocalist screams it with plain
pain the disgusted, distressed and aggressive way! It fucking sounds
like DISFEAR who would be really angry and nervous... boost the
half power of DISFEAR and you got an idea of ILLDAD! Uh! I feel
like these guys are more energetic but write less catchy tracks
Do not misunderstand my words, this isn't a
revelation or a totally ass kicking band, after a while it becomes
quite repetitive since they're very much D-beat based, and there
are nor real hits of crusting anthems, but it's full of power and
beating drums! So the fans of raw Crustcore should put an hear on
this! Hell yeah!
(Dan) Cast into fields of evil pleasures CD'03 WORLD CHAOS
asked the label for a Death/ Thrashing promo, and I receive the
melodic black crap! This isn't clever! ILLNATH were voluntary sent
into my mailbox to make me deeply shit and laugh! Ah Ah! Satan is
very clever and he knows I'm a never-ending fan of this pussy melodic
Black metal that sounds like old CRADLE OF SHIT and old HECATE ENTHRONED!
The castrated vocals are still so sexy, the riffs are so melodic
and happy, the keyboards are still so useless! Come on! We're in
the forest happily dancing with some evil trolls!
IMMOLATION (USA) "CLOSE
TO A WORLD BELOW" CD’01 METAL BLADE RECORDS
'Here in After'
is one of my favorite death metal cd's but I must say Im not crazy
with what Immo has been doing since 'failures for gods'. It just
lacks catchiness, emotion and coherence in my opinion. This new
album while being better than 'Failures...' still fails at topping
Immo's debut disc on metal blade. Why the hell they added blast
beats is beyond me. It just doesnt fit the riffs they have which
by the way sound fucking UNINSPIRED at times on this cd! They also
seem content with the production Paul Orofino gave 'em but I personally
hate it. Apart from the title track and a few riffs on some of the
other songs, this cd bored me to death. If you liked 'failures...'
go get it, then again if not, avoid it.
Unholy cult LP'02 ltd 666
Incredible how this band manages to puch its own boundaries
album after album. Yeah, it took a long time between their first
cultissime act "Dawn of possession" and their second album "Here in after",
but since their come back with the really obscure and hateful "Failures for
gods", IMMOLATION seems to finally provide the fans´ears regularly with
nothing but pure UNHOLY CULT DEATH METAL, the way it must be
played. "Close to a world below" had already shown the band in a really
good form with its direct songs, even if some were quite long, and had shown
to the metal community that IMMOLATION is one of the best Death Metal bands
And now, thanks to Paul Orofino, one more time, these dudes
deliver something like their best effort since "Dawn of possession". It
seemed to be impossible that they could compose something as cult as their
aforementionned albums, but they did it and with such a majesty that bands
like MORBID ANGEL should take some lessons from IMMOLATION, in order to
propose something more fresh...
IMMOLATION has created such a moody and
deeply emotionnal depressive Death Metal in its pure meaning. Here you will
find tunes that are morbid as hell, and that will make you suffocate in
your poor carcass. The riffs can only be heard in IMMOLATION´s music. Such
an identity is rare nowadays, and as they benefit of the best sound they
ever had, believe me that you can do nothing but kneel down before the
perfection of this cult piece of vinyl. The music is complex but remains
efficient without sounding boring or cliché at all. Moreover it´s like a
live feeling emerging from these morbid tunes, and it gives you lust to
watch IMMOLATION on stage.
I rather stop here because the positive adjectives
like: cult, majestuous, perfect, incredible, pure, ultimate... aren´t good
enough to describe the feeling delivered by these real death metal
(Usa) Choice cuts CD'01 NECROPOLIS.
daddy noticed there was no IMPALED stuffs reviewed on this website,
and the cheesy and juicy wide opened cunt wasn't enough to satisfy
the need of this old bastard, during a fucked up crappy night. So
the old necropervert took off one hand from his total crass balls,
split the juicy waiting cunt, and introduced this IMPALED CD in
the mighty orifice of gore metal perversion!
Ah! This CD is
composed of various unreleased or older IMPALED tracks that come
from demos or quite rare releases. But the big daddy isn't so close
to IMPALED, so don't expect much musical comparisons or other slip
bashing masturbating themes. No. The music of IMPALED is some kind
of Death grind meets Grindcore and Death metal, with EXHUMED and
some CARCASS similarities, but it remains cleaner, not so disjoncted.
I noticed this for those of you little crappy bastards who spend
more time in their church, ass-licking and cock-warming their priest
than listening to metal! This is pure blasphemy!
This CD includes
some covers of CARCASS ("Carneous cacoffiny") and IMPETIGO
("I work for the street cleaner") as well as various stuffs
from Demo'98, 7 Eps and else. (So the sound is Demo like for the
3/4 of it). I guess it's pro and nicely done enough to be at least
Ok for many adepts of the ass-juice distillery.
I'm not a big
fan of IMPALED since it lacks the disjoncted craziness of old CARCASS,
but fans of the 2 aforementioned bands may find in IMPALED (not
especially this CD!!) a nice addition in their fukked up cacoffiny
SAVAGERY (Usa) Imperial Savagery CD. 2014. PROUDLY DEFIANT Recs.
new evil Death metal band counts three musicians that once played
in CORPSEVOMIT (The Us one), this might ring a bell in the cavern-heads
of some underground beholders.
Globally, their music reminds
me the most of ANGEL CORPSE, with blasting moments closer to the
first CEMETERY URN CD (It might be due in part to the quite "abrasive"
production), with breaks and a couple of riffs from mid old MORBID
ANGEL, and something from the first HATE ETERNAL recordings perhaps
(I feel some of the songs Rutan wrote on "Domination"
aren't so far from here, the quite technical and a bit dissonant
This reminds me of ANGEL CORPSE: For the music, I would
say this is closer to the "Exterminate" album; For
the production I would say this is close to the first impression
I got when a tape copy of "The inexorable" was inserted
in my tape-player (This comparison isn't totally valid compared
to what you might know, since the tape I received was a 3rd generation
copy or something, but you could have an idea of how it would sound
in a "rawer" manner...)
This is satanic, fast death
metal with a tendency to evolve around the lines of (ooold) brutal
death (Yet without any groove, mosh, or even "jump" traces...).
For example, you could happen to think about some old SUFFOCATION
recordings (90's), mostly because of the quite brutal drumming (Fast
and slower). (The vocals could happen to sound like a less guttural
Frank Mullen... But I'm not totally convinced with this comparison).
I might add a quite rawer way of riffing sometimes brings the content
closer to some kinds of brutal black metal, but this isn't particularly
a major element.
After a quite rasp, sometimes almost abrasive
first approach, the satanic death metal of IMPERIAL SAVAGERY unveils
interesting moments and quite good riffs that occur to be more complex
than the average, and procure a quite kicking listening during moments
of infernal brutality.
I couldn't say catchy riffs crucified
my brain or awaken the cumbeast, but this is a quite burning and
quite solid sounding album. Fans of ANGEL CORPSE, DIABOLIC, old
MORBID ANGEL and the likes might find here a quite solid album to
challenge their dorsal articulations with.
SODOMY (Fra) Demolished CD'04. DIAMOND Prod.
If I decently
revisit the perverse vomit of the elder gods, the first and previous
album of IMPERIAL SODOMY didn't turn me on that much, because even
if it was brutal as a cold fuck, it was too monotonous and lacked
or real burning riffs!
Since then the band has changed many musicians,
and the current songs of IMPERIAL SODOMY sound more appealing in
my blasted putrid mind: the music remains brutal as a 3 way quartered
deep bleeding bitch, but it's a bit more varied. These tracks could
sound like a nauseous mixture of BRODEQUIN, early DEEDS OF FLESH,
old CANNIBAL CORPSE, few old KRISIUN and some other Us Brutal Death
bands who like it quite technical.
Even if the drummer is an
hyper-fast blasting maniac and a total double bass-drums rumble
militia, and the other musicians have a good finger shredding level,
I remain midly convinced by most of their songs. It sounds all brutal
and brutal and brutal... But some shocking riffs and haunting perverse
melodies of inhuman torment lack to engulf me in embalmed madness!
More feeling damnit! My fave track is "I hate humans"
because it deflagrates more intensity than the other ones! (There's
a bit of early DEICIDE/ Black metal and total blast intensity in
If you like brainless decapitated brutality and enjoy
when she comes out in chunks, you might you might dig your tomb
of skulls with the empress sodomizers, but if you're rather into
something catchy and deadly emotional, I guess there won't be much
for your perverse needs of killer Death metal!

has evolved a lot since their "Zygoticcal..." CD, and
some guys who listened to them before may not recognize them! They
sound now more professional.
While in their previous releases
they sounded more raw and obscure in a Black/ Death vein like ABHORER
with some SARCOFAGO touches, they sound now like a mix of Norvegian
Black metal, IMMORTAL's "Blizzard Beast" and "At
the heart of winter" CDs without the frozen touch, old school
raw Black Death à la BESTIAL WARLUST with some old school
Metal influences ranging from Death metal to Thrash and Heavy Metal
for some riffings. Their vocals are now more high pitched.
haven't found so much more of their tremolos that sounded cool and
catchy.. but the quality is better.
As a whole, this ain't bad,
more aggressive than what they did before, and it can be cool for
Underground extreme metal maniacs!
(Swe) The killer CD'02 HAMMERHEART.
Open air second hand
markets are cool since you can find some nice stuffs for a very
low price! For exemple I found this IMPIOUS CD for the affordable
price of one euro!
The style of the band evolves between Death
and Thrash metal as they could remind of mid old SODOM, THE CROWN,
TESTAMENT, THE HAUNTED, mid old METALLICA ("And justice for
all"/ "Masters of puppets" era) and eventually a
bit of OVERKILL. I've mixed feelings about this one, on a spiked
hand you get some nice tracks and cool ideas, on the other hand
you are fed with some average, ever heard or not so convincing ideas.
track "Burn the cross" stands out from the whole CD. Nice
death thrashing metal miwing THE CROWN, CARCASS (Necroticism/ Heartwork
era) and some old VADER. This is a nice track with an efficient
song structure and good stuffs on the drum section, notice this
is one of the only tracks in here that includes blasts. Good production.
It's cooler than a bunch of stuffs released nowadays.
the review, I'll say it'll be an entertaining. interesting CD during
a few tracks. There are some nice or quite good stuffs in here,
but the interest doesn't last more than 40% of the CD.
(Bel) Epileptic CD'04 GOODLIFE/ SOULREAPER Recs.
by far the best IN QUEST release I had the opportunity to hear!
is a modern mix of several kinds of extreme metal mixed altogether
in varied tracks to almost pathologically punch you in the face!
While the main lines of the music bound in brutal powercore, Death
metal and thrash metal, elements of heavy metal and melodic death
can be found. So IN QUEST reminds me of the latest CARCASS' works
(Necroticism/ Heartwork) both for the controlled death metal riffing
and heavy metal or more lyrical parts. There are strong influences
of the older MESHUGGAH's works for the heavy powercore riffs and
crippled calculated guitars while old FEAR FACTORY and PANTERA's
3 gutfull Cds (Cowboys, Vulgar, Far Beyond) are noticeable influences.
I regret they don't play more blasting parts with riffs à la
CARCASS (Necroticism) such as on the 2nd track... that would diversify
and bring more punch to this album that happens to stagnate on the
powercore and Fear factory alike riffs.
Some Gothenburp melodic
death can be found, but it's not abusive. A more modern metal touch
may remind you of SCARVE or Devin Townsend's "Ocean machine"
while the use of wide background samples sounds like FEAR FACTORY
in their "Demanufacture" era. Of course there are other
influences, but this review is meant to be readable, so try few
Mp3s if these lines turned on your curiosity.
is powerful and very good. The band is very professional and knows
how to play their varied style in the right way. By moments, this
album is almost killer! IN QUEST is a band I'd advice to those who
enjoy modern extreme metal in its entirety and who remain quite
open-minded! This album is really not bad.
(Usa) Ownward to golgotha CD'92 RELAPSE.
Actually a pillar
of the underground Death metal, and an almost mythic band of the
2nd Death metal wave, INCANTATION was striking very hard with this
first album! It was almost instrumental only as the vocals were
rather used as a (good) mood element.
Very well structured, this
first album that's as cavernous as possible crushes as nobody else.
Even SUFFOCATION didn't ose to do so with the guns of Tampa's scene.
The MORBID ANGEL shadow sometimes flys around here ("Golgotha")
the ultra fast south American parts to the darker mood of European
Death metal and its sometimes very slow tempos, INCANTATION is one
of these rare bands that makes the proofs of a real personality
at its very beginnings. The lack of clarity of the sound won't change
anything, it kills from the beginning to the end! Nobody since
AUTOPSY didn't succeed in playing so slow while being so intense,
and nobody will succeed in it later, in anyway without sounding
so Death metal. Because here's the strong power of "Onward
to golgotha": to mix an excellent music with a mood that wouldn't
have been enough to make a good release. It smells Death as fuck,
the marl of the evil one is here, it breathes the cemetery. Death
metal was speaking about zombies and demons... but this time they
are around you while you listen to this CD!
(USA) Blasphemy CD'02 CANDLELIGHT.
I know some guys who consider
INCANTATION as some pilars of the Uderground and think their music
is pure and excellent blasphemy, but I wouldn't be so positive.
old school Death metal w/ blast parts and with some Brtual Death
influences for Heavy riffs includes some quite interesting ideas
from time to time, but I also think some riffs are classical for
this old school style (the band sounds totally the way they did
around 94). Even if the two bands doesn't procure the same feeling,
I can't avoid thinking about CANNIBAL CORPSE's "Gallery of
suicide" LP while listening to some heavy riffs on this blasphemous
The sound maybe lacks of a given raw touch that made INCANTATION
albums more obscure and Underground. Anyway, I think some guys
who are into the blasting blasphemous obscurity will seriously brutalize
some priests on these sulphuric tunes.

old DEICIDE (1st LP) influences at the level of vocals that will
make you think about what made Glen Benton's vocal choruses memorable.
fucking drummer doesn't stop blasting with his double bass drums,
it sounds fucking inhuman!
At the level of the music, we could
speak about a rather well played Brutal Death Grind à la
DEEDS OF FLESH with some heavy riffs à la SUFFOCATION, tremolo
riffs à la DEICIDE and a few dominating sounding guitar pukes
à la "Altars of madness". There's nothing exceptionnal
around the riffing, but there are some nice or quite catchy Brutal
As a whole, this Brutal death album that includes short
tracks isn't fucking thrilling, but it's rather well constructed
and produced. I guess it can please the fans of the 2 first DEEDS
OF FLESH releases.
(Swe) Thrash attack MCD'00 SOUND RIOT.
Horns up high you

Those who have seen the link with

Old school fucking thrash speed metal is what these spiked to the
core bastards agress on this MCD, and yeah, it's well done and the
bunch of catchy riffs are there! Not your "old school"
riff stealing band!
The feasting aggression of guitar chords
is efficient and ass kicking while it reminds me of ONSLAUGHT, DARKNESS,
KREATOR (old) and ASSASSIN!
Very cool band with quite good tracks,
many accelerations on thrash metal urge, and a good powerful yet
clear sound. My fave track in here is "Storm of the thrashers"!
Yeah, cool chorus! Thrash attack! That smells like some bloody
cool burning vinyl will be released! INCINERATOR is a very cool
band the maniacs of the old school Thrash speed metal need to know!
(Usa) The blood shall flow + Count the dead re-release CD'01 MERCENARY
Some labels seem to awake and take good initiatives!
Bloody cunt of hell! I recently received some soft Nu metal, Rock
and other stuffs that has nothing to do here! Some labels should
stop drinking beer when they do their promo!
But let’s come
back to worthy of attention discussions. This re-release directly
emerging from the deepest pits of abominated abysmal desolations
is welcome, right from the burning guts of sufferance! It includes
both the first CD if the band, "The blood shall flow"
and the fucking "Count the dead demo"!
with "The blood shall flow". It was a nice CD released
in 98, but it was less inspired, morbidly repugnant, and gruesomely
rejoicing than the aforementioned demo. Quite cool Death grind around
the lines of INCANTATION, old MORBID ANGEL, with some very old Death
metal influences. But there were some very cool parts, and "Bodily
disembowelment" is a good crushing Death/ Grind track the way
I like it! Fast track with good riffs and cool drums' breaks! Nice
The tremendous "Count the dead" Demo is here
released in pure emanations of sulfurous agony and malevolent fumes
from hell! Excellent decision! That was in my opinion the most sulfurous
piece of obscure Death metal iniquity INFAMY procreated! Totally
old school, mid placed Death metal morbidity with an impious raw
feeling. It goes along the war lines of old UNLEASHED, old CARNAGE
(a bit), old GRAVE, old MORBID ANGEL (demos) and old IMMOLATION.
Of corpse the malicious Death metal hymn "Count the dead"
is here! Some vocals really seem to be more than simple words! A
deep occult meaning of the forgotten ancients seem to lie behind
these coffin's texts! A very cool rerelease! But be careful you
little putrid reader, INFAMY may please only the most burning heads
of the Death metallers who love it raw, sulfurous, obscure and old
school! You've been warned!

While their first
demos had a rawer approach, I have the feeling INFANTICIDE evolves
in a way reminding of the last NAPALM DEATH albums, with a bit more
catchiness, and some kind of the same will to have a big production
that tastes like a well rounded tasty big bottom. And this fat appealing
ass doesn't make it more aggressive or shredding sounding, no, it
gives a taste of something that could crush your nose (If you didn't
care about where you put this crooked piece of disturbing curiosity).
of this MCD is grindcore, with the blast, crusty punk stuffs, few
heavier moments... Some vocals almost sound like Power violence.

bit to fast by moments, so some efficiency is lost.
are cool, some aren't so cooling, all in all I feel as it's average
coz the band could be more extreme and crushing!
Big fans of
cool underground grind might eat this up, without much need of warming
beer, but to reach the next scale of grinding power INFANTICIDE
needs to make it more extreme and intense! And I think they're able
to do so... So... So!!?
(Swe) Infernal MCD'99 HELLSPAWN.
Here's a project with "Ex
"warriors" of DARK FUNERAL, "warriors" of IN
AETERNUM and DEFLESHED..."
Well, this is you basic Black
metal with raw riffs, hyper fast drums, high pitched screams...
but nothing new or special I didn't hear in any DARK FUNERAL release!
These 4 tracks reminds me a lot of the first DARK FUNERAL CD, it's
blasting and owns punching Death metal beats... It has the taste
of good opportunities and music business, a label wouldn't have
released it if the guys weren't Black metal "superstars"!
I found no passion behind this CD. It sounds like fastly composed
projects à la WAR... Who needs another CD of this kind? If you want
an album if the style, check a DARK FUNERAL release as they've got
enough CDs to satisfy your needs!
CONJURATION (Mex) Auto de fe 7 Ep. 2010. BLOOD HARVEST Recs.
style of these Mexican Death metallers didn't change a lot compared
to their first demo "Tremendous plague" which was quite
good and morbid.
The first side of this Ep begins with "Auto
de fe", an introduction that aims to develop some kind of ritual/
occult mood. It more or less reminds me the introduction of an old
BULLDOZER album, even if it's more down-tuned... I don’t know.
we can hear the first song, "Demonic possession," that
begins fast and kicking à la very old MORBID ANGEL meets ABHORER
("Zygotical Sabbatory Anabapt" CD), to then evolve in
old school death à la old DEATH/ MORGOTH (With a little touch of
Peruvian MORTEM ("Demon tales")), to then come back to
the initial blasting pattern. This sounds quite ugly and kicking,
the part in the middle (In the more old school vein) is quite good,
and there's something a bit more thrashing (Some guitar crunch)
than in the regular old school death metal. This is a quite good
and kicking song!
side contains "Zatanazombie", a cover of the old Mexican
band SHUB NIGGURATH. This sounds ok, quite cool if you wish, somewhere
in the middle between (fast) traditional south American death and
old school European death, but since I don't know the original song
I'm not able to say much... I think I would have preferred another
song à la "Demonic possession" to explore deeper the guts
of INFERNAL CONJURATION!
isn't bad, but it's a bit short and I felt more embalmed by their
first demo! (Maybe they were a bit rushed before recording... A
couple more rehearsals could have helped to reach the right frequency
of coffin vibration?). This is a quite cool, but morbidly imperfect
Ep, that shall please mostly the bigger morbid Death metal fans!
I'm waiting for the next INFERNAL CONJURATION recording to judge
of their sulfurous improvements in morbid abilities. UP THE CADAVERS!
INFERNAL DAMNATION (Usa)
Into the crevice of obliteration Tape album. 2015. SUBGENRE Recs.
Mysterious things happen under your bed.
Music cassettes are somewhat magnetically attracted, under your bed.
And it remains hidden and forgotten there for months, under your bed.
I'm starting to believe some microscopic metal concerts happen here at night
while I'm sleeping, under the bed...
The fact this demo tape remaint out of sight for a good couple of months
doesn't mean it contains bad music, it was probably taken away by the imaginary
"black metal" cat, and I was also quite busy to handle everything...
INFERNAL DAMNATION isn't a new band, they released a couple of demos and Eps
before, but this is the first recording of theirs to reach my toxically
Even if the name of the band could let you imagine the style has something to
do with black metal, this is in fact a quite seldom influence, but I have to
say the "infernal" word fits quite well since there is something
quite infernal and burning in the inside.
This is quite old styled death metal/ thrash metal that sounds quite kicking.
The influences of the band generally flirt with the end 80's and early 90's, so
I used to think about old PROTECTOR (When they were migrating towards more DM
music), old KREATOR (Pleasure to kill/ Terrible certainty), some DEMOLITION
HAMMER, some early DEICIDE (The first album, for some faster/ angrier moments
that raise the anticlerical flag up), a bit of old DEATH (Some
"Leprozy" or even "Human" even if the style isn't prog
influenced, sometimes there are little "melodic" touches or nice
little bass parts), and a couple of more chaotic leads à la early POSSESSED.
There are quite a lot of rhythm/ riff changes during songs, perhaps a little
too much sometimes, but it doesn't really matter.
I enjoy the burning atmosphere and the very end 80's or 90's metal moods, this
tape can sound quite nervous by moments and I believe INFERNAL DAMNATION could
be a great band to check out live. Now I can't say there's something new or
really personal here, but the whole is packaged well enough and comes with
enough of energy to somewhat compensate.
Fans of the style could dig it.
REVULSION (Jap) Devastate under hallucination CD'07. GOREGIASTIC
homodernitophobicism the best solution? Give me a minute of gut-torsion
epylepticism. INFERNAL REVULSION plays typically US Brutal death,
but it's not so modern as it would rather remind what was procreated
10 years ago by bands such as REPUDILATION (Grooves & blasts),
UNCREATION, or even before by SUFFOCATION/ PYREXIA and a bit of
BANISHED. It equally shares the gore between the blasts, the heavy
grooves and moments of normal speed. The vocals sound equally gore
and dripping in blood. 10 years ago, it would have a good place
in my Brutal playlists, but something like real craziness, riffs
from hell or surprising catchiness lacks to hook me in 2007. To
sum it up, INFERNAL REVULSION is a quite cool band that might please
cool fans of the style who like to drown in their Brutal death,
but it's not one of the best bands in the style...
TORMENT (Den) Man's true nature CD'95 DIE HARD.
a cover! I immediately bought the CD when I saw the artwork! Pure
bestiality! And the logo was looking very Brutal and complex also!
The music sounded totally insane! Complex as fuck extremely Brutal
Death with so much tempos and riffs' changes everywhere! In the
style of CANNIBAL CORPSE ("Tomb of the mutilated") but
with ways more riffs everywhere! Sounded fucking technical also!
This bastard had hyper guttural low grunts perversion, I didn't
hear o Brutal vocals at this time!
I remember I had big laughs
when I read their lyrics for the first time! I won't say more, it
dealt with extremely Brutal sex and things like that, check a few
tracks' titles: "Motherfuck", "No longer a virgin",
"On the hunt for fresh flesh" or "When daddy comes
home"... Well, this isn't the kind of lyrics I enjoy anymore
(far from this!) Total butchery Brutal death metal! Hyper technical
leads! And new grooves in the Brutal style that were so Brutal it
didn't groove anymore! It was fucking influenced by PYREXIA, SUFFOCATION,
DEICIDE ("Legion")! I remember we had bestial knives dances
with some friends, because this CD was so Brutal... Ah Ah!
is a good amount of catchy BRUTAL riffs here! And it was ways more
Brutal and efficient than their 2nd CD "Birthrate zero"
that wasn't extreme! Only Ok Death/ Grind with more melodies, and
rockin' influences (if I remember well, only the first track was
catchy). In here, the mix of guttural vox, Brutal and heavy riffs,
Heavy bass guitar and gut puking drums built a fucking Brutal maelstrom
of sound! some tracks you're knocked out and the tracks become
quite repetitive... But that was very extreme and it's still worth
the listening for Brutal death maniacs! No problem!
WAR (Pol) Infernal war Tape Lp’04. DEATH INDUSTRY Prod.
as fuck blasting black metal à la MARDUK ("Heaven shall burn")
and WAR. Raw riffs, screamed vocals, tight and fast as a spiked
as fukk and hungry as hell shark of a drummer. This fucking blasts!!
But after a few tracks the evil toxic serenade turns into a quite
repetitive hellmas gift. INFERNAL WAR's black metal is always into
this kind of fast stuff, with few slower moments and death metal
rhythms. Another problem lies in he fact the riffs doesn't deal
with brutal memorabilia, ass shredding epileptic melodies and rhythmic
guitars of church devastating hellish violent storms. In short words:
it lacks an intense feeling.
The music sounds almost pro for
most of it, with some nice ideas of structures from here and there,
but with a tendency to repeat the same kind of fast riffs too many
times (In my not so black metallic hears). At least the band isn't
boring when you're in for a skull blasting evil session.
INFERNAL WAR sounds better than the average black metal I heard,
and I guess fans of the MARDUK album quoted before might find an
aggressive interest in here! While Satan keeps laughing...
(Fra) Life CD'04 GRIND YOUR SOUL.
So here's the 4th INHUMATE
I remember ordering their 2nd Demo "Grind your soul"
and their first two albums back at the time. It wasn't too bad for
its time, even if some cheezyness could be found! For those who
know the band, on this new album there aren't much changes compared
to their previous release. This is still somekind of Death grind
meets Grindcore with few Hardcore, Grindgore and Brutal death touches.
grunts of the vocalist is what has evolved the most: he's almost
into putrid goregrind by moments!
I have the same opinion towards
this release and the previous one: some riffs and parts are cool,
but some are also too easily findable or average/ very average.
INHUMATE doesn't play totally old school grind to the contrary of
what I could read on some extreme 'methane' webzines: there are
a bunch of tremolo death metal riffs mixed with some grindcore guitars,
hardcorish slowdowns and other styles, so don't strictly compare
them to early NAPALM DEATH, S.O.B, REPULSION (the spirit and style
aren't really the same) that would be a good beginning.
production is good, even if it's a bit too clear, but that's not
INHUMATE's music could be compared to a mix of old
and new NAPALM DEATH, MASTIC SCUM, old CANNIBAL CORPSE, LOCK UP,
few CBT, AHUMADO GRANUJO and other more underground bands in the
extreme metal/ Grindcore kinds of music.
So this album has its
moments, I didn't find much special nor much memorable, but it might
turn on guys who like a kind of Grinding music which isn't too complicated.
Try it and make your mind.
(Hol) Decomposing from inside CD’00 BONES BRIGADE.
be fucking Brutal and efficient live! I see the total chaos in the
moshpit! Total explosions of uncontrolled brutality!
total unrelentless Brutal Grindcore à la REGURGITATE meets DEAD
INFECTION ("Chapter of accident". Totally intense! Rotten
energy of the gore and bizarre cerebral landscapes à la old CARCASS.
Super energized blasts à la TERRORIZER!
Big sound making them
sound not only aggressive but also Brutal, Inhuman and heavy as
a fucking 40 kilograms punch in your face!
Heavy Grindcore that
deeply lacerates the arse of so many high flying "evil"
black-metallists! Primal Grindcore! There are no weak arrangements,
useless melodies for flying bullshits here! Only pure Grindcore
insanity from the beginning to the end! Some riffs are as catchy
as a fucking airplane crash! Ah!
Not new stuff but still worth
the listening! Quite repetitive after half the inside decomposing,
but which grinder gives a fuck when it's really intense and destructive?
Fucking efficient! I hope the next album that will
emerge from the schizophrenic pulp through Osmose will be as emotionally
(Hol) Decomposing from inside CD'00 BONES BRIGADE
This band crushes! Full of strength
and energy Grinding death from the land of weed: holland! The stuff here's really
brutal and aggressive, even if it's quite easily played. (It's not
necessary to be complex to be brutal!). Brutal Grindcore in the
vein of the old Godz: NAPALM DEATH, TERRORIZER and few Gore metal
metal masters such as CARCASS! This will fucking explode your bones
and suck your blood to the dry rot!
Powerfull abrasive sound! Good
Brutal drummer who blasts, blasts, punches, kicksn and blasts again!
are very small BLOOD influences for bizarre crust and slow death
parts but old NAPALM seems to be the thing here. Even if some
friends say the vocals aren't as powerfull as on their 2 previous
demos, and this isn't very original, I think this is a strong band that deserves full attention!
Since this CD release, I'm still checking it from time to time so
it's a good point! Perfect for brutallers!
(Hol) In for the kill CD'03 OSMOSE.
you thought your hard times of suffering and oppression were over?
Face the metal: you're already DEAD!!!
A new INHUME CD is welcome
since not much really Brutal stuffs are released these months, and
you'd need another kick in your face to awake you from your futile
and drastically unreal dreams! The cruel kick of reality!
And the task wasn't so easy for INHUME to offer some new Brutal
tracks: their previous CD was still intense as fuck and Brutal as
an ugly cavernman!
What I hear on this new CD is still in the
same exploding veins: Brutal Grindcore with some touches of Crustcore
and Death metal! It's still not original; but Fuck you! It shreds!
The production is still raw and powerful, the growls and screams
are still here to make you choke on your crap, the drummer is still
efficient (and Brutal) and the riffs are still primal! There are
maybe few more slower parts on this one!
So, it's a Brutal CD
in the ungodly vein of the cavernous "Decomposing from inside"!
I like it as it is, I didn't really need another one like "D.F.I"
, I haven’t listened to “In for the kill” more than 3 times,
but time will tell which one I prefer! Cavern. Kromag. Fukked up!
Kiss of the maggots CD'02.
This is the kind of average band
that fastly gets boring yer metallic ears. Very average ever heard
thousands times before simple and common as fuck riffs a 4 months
guitarist could perform and compose every 5 minutes. Somekind of
old SIX FEET UNDER without the balls (the original ain't got the
balls, so ya can imagine what INKOHERENT offers!).
some kind of hardcore vocals and some of the riffs are simply happy!
The band has released a CD. AH! AH! AH! They need at least 4 or
5 years of hard work to be able to release a decent CD. Avoid

hearing Black metal for the fans of darkened jewels like "Pure
With INQUISITION, Black metal recovers a bit
of its deads and buried meaning! The best moments of this album
are obscure, aggressive, depressed, grim, with some real feeling,
even though INQUISITION isn't original at all.
You'll find blasting
moments à la IMMORTAL (2nd Lp), fast and blasting, but not of the
most brutal kind: it's obscure and inside! You'll hear quite numerous
depressed and simple arpeggios à la IMMORTAL, it's cool and obscure
even if it doesn't always sound the best. You'll view old images
linked to "De mysteriis dom sathanas" during some riffs
à la mid old MAYHEM. You'll think about mid old BATHORY during mid
placed and slow moments of simple and quite depressed black metal.
But INQUISITION isn't always dark and mourned as fuck since some
riffs are more enlightened and open wide the gates of sorrowful
hopes in their compositions. I'm not much impressed by the vocals
that were meant to sound grim, but rather seem like spoken lyrics
with no real highlights in frozen dementia. But it sounds ok.
riffs are well felt, some tracks are nicely constructed, while on
the other hand I feel some riffs and breaks as wastes of intensity.
That's maybe coz I'm not a big black metal fan... I also think some
tracks are quite repetitive.
All in all, what we have here is
a quite interesting album with both good ideas/ good tracks and
apparently less inspired and ever-heard guitars. Finally I'd advice
big fans of old IMMORTAL, old MAYHEM, old DARKTHRONE, early BATHORY
and Black metal the Norwegian way to put an hear on this 2nd INQUISITION
album since it's largely over the top of the mediocre average Black
metal releases! (But it probably won't seem so in the obliterated
hears of those who aren't into obscurity but embrace the life styles
of evil Halloween trolls!). Anyway: support INQUISITION! c/o Inquisition,

ASSHOLES (Ita)/ GRUNTER SCREAMS (Ita) Split CD’04.
nice one for Grind freaks! The INSANE ASSHOLES are still in the
Grind crust fields of extreme music! Blasting à la old NAPALM DEATH,
crusty à la DISRUPT, death metallikly punching and grinding à la
PIG DESTROYER meets TERRORIZER, with few more inCOREified touches
to make your carcass move! The crust that makes your carcass move!
These assholes still play this pile bloody core in a cool way: cool
tracks with enough breaks and some riffs compressed in the right
way to be able to grind the putrid core! This is nothing new or
excellent, but surely a cool band for fans of the style, and worth
seeing live with a couple of beers!
less interest. GRUNTER SCREAMS plays somekind of Crust, I'm not
a fan of this style and only the most punishing bands of this kind
have their place in my collection! In this case, I'd rather say
G.S plays Crust punk that crustcore, since it's less powerful and
more punkish; it sounds rather like DOOM than the energized Crustcore
of DISRUPT for example! They also have some Hardcore and other inCOREified
things. It might be a cool band for Underground fans of the style:
they have correct tiffs and a cool production, but it lacks the
fucking power that makes your body move! An average band.
WARFARE (Usa)/ CARCASS GRINDER (Jap) Split Ep'07. Psychotherapy
INSECT WARFARE: Not bad and quite intense Grindcore!
It seems like accelerated early NAPALM DEATH. Their blasts sounds
a bit too fast in my hears, I have a preference for the blasting
to be quite old school and far from some "ultra blasts",
but in this putrid case INSECT WARFARE has something more to offer
than useless blablablablastings meant to cover weaknesses, there's
some intensity and a quite crusty punk-as-fuck state of emergency
in the riffs! Most probably a great band for grind fanatics.
I have never «particularly» been into this band, and the songs I
can hear don’t change my mind... Grind/ fastcore whatever-you-call-it-as-you-wish
that sounds decently fast and screaming, but the riffs do nothing
particular... I need vibrations of crusty doomed fate and ultra
aggressive grinding urges, but C.G don't provide me with these emotional
affects... They're cult? Maybe, but I listen to music :-P
(Swe) The dead live on Tape Ep/ MCD’01 IMMORTAL SOULS.
pro tape/ MCD consists of the 2nd recording of INSISION that dates
back to 1999 (the original "The dead lives on" MCD released
on HEATHENDOOM) plus two bonus tracks from the "Revelation
of the sadogod" Demo'01: "Trapped within" and the
DEATH cover "Zombie ritual".
Even if the style of
the band wasn't so technical in these days, it was well-done old
school Death with strong reminiscences of old DEICIDE and old CANNIBAL
CORPSE. It could also make think about ALTAR (Hol) or a bit of very
old HYPOCRISY (when they were still playing Death metal).
had the two vocals chorus of old DEICIDE, some heavy 3 measures
riffs Benton's cast used, some blasts and a bunch of old school
Death metal punching beats. I don't find this older recording as
catchy and strongly punishing as their last releases, but it wasn't

for a first pro release!

reviewed their two previous demos in my forthcoming paper issues,
and I had a very positive opinion about their brutal underground
I can only tell you this first full length is somekind
of an achivement and retrospective of some past years of good underground
and Brutal composition. Deeply emotional Brutal death metal with
a dark aura and a technical edge.
Old school Cannibal Corpse
influences, catchy riffs of death (both melodic tremolos and aggressive
technicity's manifestations), American Brutal death influences everywhere
(avoiding the too much heard clichés!), new school Morbid
Angel's heaviness and obscurity, technical riffs à la NECROPHAGIST,
alive and varied drum playing between old CRYPTOPSY, DEVOURMENT
(a bit) with some explosive blasting parts... all this mixed in
a thrilling excellence!
Great powerfull sound!
It will kick
your ass as it kicked out mine!
One of the best albums Earache
has released for years!
BLEEDING (Usa) Invocation of evil MCD WILD RAGS.
always seen some American Brutal death bands quoting Internal bleeding
in their fave bands list, along with SUFFOCATION, CANNIBAL CORPSE,
DEICIDE, PYREXIA... So one day I checked it on a tape trading list,
waited for a few weeks... and I was just disappointed since I expected
a new killer Brutal Death revelation!
It's an american styled
Brutal death band with a strong groovy sounding touch but nothing
more. It was very influenced by old SUFFOCATION/ old PYREXIA but
none of their riffs own a fucking soul! And I must say I feel their
groovy like riffs sound fucking calculated and lack of any real
I can find some cool ideas or real quality in the
drum playing only! The riffs are just too common and articulated
in a so usual way. And I know a good amount of guys share this opinion.
Where does their "success" comes from?
has got another of their releases that's really better, thanks to
tell me it's title!
For me it's just average riffs pasted the
ones behind the others, without any highlight, crushing "eyes'
see red" riffs nor apocalyptic revelation.
It's a tape I
haven't listened to for years...
BLEEDING (Usa) Driven to conquer CD'99 PAVEMENT.
first meeting with INTERNAL BLEEDING's music wasn't very cool since
I got one of their older releases, and I wasn't pleased at all!
It was too common and cliché to please my Brutal tastes, and I wondered
why so many guys quote them as an influence!
But thanks to this
album I have a kinda better opinion about the band! What you have
here is American Brutal death metal in a not too abusive style;
with blasts, grooves, quite cool riffs and not too much technicality!
riffs-filled tracks are quite nicely constructed: it nicely flows
like beer! The rhythms of guitars and drums are varied enough to
offer a rhythmically diverse yet homogenous package. Similarities
to old PYREXIA, SUFFOCATION can be felt!! Few nice and quite interesting
ideas are thrown from here and there (the classical guitar on the
first track...) to refresh your filthy Brutal head! The band sounds
professional and they have a good powerful production... but I'm
not talking about a sterile professionalism!
This album offers
nothing new; but it is done with enough variety, know-how and a
cool sense of Groovy Brutal death to offer a bunch of pleasant listening
to those who still enjoy the American style after so many packs
ONLY BEER IS REAL!
(Usa) The book of lambs CD’01 HAMMERHEART.
Most of you repugnant
readers must know this album, but it's intense! So it deserves a
review of Death! Fucking fumes of hell! After his departure from
MORBID ANGEL (for gigs only) and HATE ETERNAL, Jared Anderson has
the possibility to concretize this personal project of intense technical
Brutal death metal! And what we have here is more convincing then
the 2nd HATE ETERNAL or latest SINISTER recordings. Obscure and
satanic melodies that leads the rats à la MORBID ANGEL. Fumes of
sulfurous Death emerging from an intense technical Death/Grind à
la PROFANITY! Hell compressed technical Brutal Death metal chaotic
explosiveness revisiting the obscure crypts of the cult "Amongst
the catacombs of Nephren-ka" 'NILE). Hyper technical chaos
evoking the war Death abomination of old NATRON and old SINISTER!
Few chaotic Death metal discordances à la IMMOLATION. One of the
two drummers that played in here was a part of MALEVOLENT CREATION
and ANGEL CORPSE. He has a good style full of double kicks, destructive
beats and nice rumbles of war! The dead lives in fumes and agony!
It's technical, but not demonstrative since the energy and intensity
are here! There are no approximations nor dust breathing shit riffs,
and the production is powerful, Brutal and clear! This is an intense
technical Death/ Grind CD I can advice to fans of quality Brutal
BIZARRE (CZE) / MALIGANCY (USA) Split CD'02 SHINDY.
BIZARRE: The first thing I noticed is the powerfull sound.
sound better than on their promo tape that was released around 98.
Most of the vocals are well placed classical growls but there are
also some gory pitch touches. This is the kind of very technical
band that can bore you if you're not into technical as fuck stuffs,
and it's my case. I don't see the point of playing as fast as possible...
Anyway, for the musical influences, I could
of course quote CANNIBAL CORPSE ("Vile") for the technicity,
but also some FALLEN CHRIST for the complexity in the riffs (but
without the blasphemous sulphurous aspect), some DEMENTOR for the
hyperfast blasting moments, a bit of NATRON (1st CD) for the complex
side of the music and some DISGUST (FRA) for the high pitched guitar
screams and for some heavier moments. There's a quite melodic
riff à la MORBID ANGEL but most of the stuff is Brutal death
metal. BRUTAL TRUTH's 2 first CDs could be named
here and a riff made me think about TERRORIZER's most Death metallic
The musicians of INTERVALLE
BIZARRE have got a good technical
edge, but some catchy riffs and other hooking parts are needed
if they want to please more than the masturbating technical guitar
fanatics, or the dumb fans of Soulless Brutal metal! It doesn't
suck and I could listen to a bit of their stuffs, but this cruelly
lack of real riffs to please me!
cover side reminds me of BRUTALITY's "Screams of anguish"
CD cover and that's fucking cool! The band is more in the "In your
face" side, even if it sounds blur...
Their ultra low and
underground vocals plus some complexity would make me think about
mid old INCANTATION. There's a bit of MORTICIAN for a few heavy
parts but it's way more complex.
There's a bit of DEVOURMENT. But some TON
("Blind follower" Demo) could be spelled for the heaviest
sides that includes a small groovy touch. But stop these comparisons!
I'm not a DEVOURMENT fan, and their stuff sounds quite unappealing
for several reasons: it's too blurry and chaotic like... I mean
it seems like they want to be as Brutal and complex as possible,
but at the end only create somekind of Raw Brutal noise! A raw brutal
noise that doesn't convince. It overdrives my Hi Fi speakers
and it looses in hearability (even if it remains tightly played).
plays complex brutal death, but some memorable riffs or catchy parts
are lacking! Ok it can be considered as a pro band and this and
this and that, but taking in consideration nothing in their music
seems new or more intense than the average Brutality, taking in
fact I haven't listened to their music since months and doesn't
especially want to, one can wonder if this trully deserve a Pro
CD pressing. Ok I can play it on my Hi-fi, Ok can can bear with
their music, but is it enough? As always, some Brutallizing maniacs may enjoy this band
for a few years.
STRANGULATION (Usa) Pathological brutalistic fermentation CD'06.
It's fucking lame to endure these useless pieces
of shit of colleagues, vomiting their bullshit and disgested semen
to fulfill your brain with utter crap! Stupidity enthroned? Pure
crap worship? No fucking way! Ignore, control, brutalize!
STRANGULATION plays typically US Brutal Death. It's not the most
extreme or modern, as the playing isn't over the top of the gory
cake, but it has quite technical moments and... I might say so,
due to the production and quite old styled influences, they might
be seen as a semi old school, yet technical, brutal death band,
taking influences from old CANNIBAL CORPSE ("The bleeding"
and "Tomb of..."), old DEEDS OF FLESH, early SOILS OF
FATE, old DYING FETUS and a shitload of US Brutallizers (You want
names? Order a "will" and browse the web, you fucking
mollusk!). There are touches of things that do not exactly sound
like BxDx but rather old Death and old techno death...There's nothing
triggered, and it doesn't sound surgically tight, but a bit more
alive...This point might please the anti plastic-metal mafias!
what you drink isn't necessarily what you'll regurgitate (Even if
semen never appears magically), and even if INTESTINAL STRANGULATION
isn't really catchy/ haunting or efficient as an unforgettable defloration,
this CD sounds quite skilled, solid, quite well done, and has chances
to please big fans of US Brutal Death.
INTO COFFIN (Ger) Into a
pyramid of doom CD. 2016. TERROR FROM HELL Recs.
Even in the most obscure and
conservative genres, the blending of elements can create a quite interesting
With this quite new German band we are talking about Death doom, and the way
"death" and "doom" are imbricated is quite unusual.
To sum it up roughly, let's say the music is composed of very slow riffs in the
doom (Or doom death) genre, frequently followed by sudden accelerations on
obscure or war-themed Death metal. These sudden accelerations on tempos create
a quite interesting impact.
The slower riffs are generally very slow, it sounds more like a suspended
animation than a crushing monolithic monument.
The faster parts are close to the obscure style of INCANTATION/ ENCABULOS, it's
composed of fast blasting moments and mid-paced ones with double kicks.
The riffing takes a simpler approach than usual Incantation-followers which
makes it closer to black metal. On the last songs, the doom takes more importance,
the tempos get globally slower and the atmosphere tends to be more occult.
Personally I would have preferred the slow parts to be more crushing,
monolithic, but perhaps it's a matter of morbid tastes. I would also have
preferred things to me a bit more "technical" or
"dynamic"... It sometimes seems the band is contemplating the void
(Understand "The abyss"), while I'm quite focused on other matters
these days :-).
Even if the music of INTO COFFIN didn't really hang me from the inside, the
approach is quite interesting and there are quite good atmospheres. It could be
interesting to hear how the band will develop this approach in the future.
THE GORE (GRE) Pain must be amplified CD'01 METAL AGE.
a Brutal death/ grind band with all the common usual stuffs. I've had
the feeling of ever hearing all before in the CANNIBAL CORPSE,
KRABATHOR, BOLT THROWER and INHUMATE albums all the riffs they offer
to the listener. Plus the guitar sound is a too much buzzy buzz
sounding, it lacks in real power! The vocals doesn't sound bad.
Even if the whole is correctly played, if it's quite tight (as
always), if the tracks are correctly built (as in most of the cases...)
this is very common and I'm waiting for
something more from a band that releases professional albums on
a quite big underground label! An average band with everheard riffs
to say the best!
(Cee) Menses exorcism Tape Lp'03.
This is somekind of mixture
between grind, punk, black metal and death... Even if half of the
riffs sound ok, and if there seems to be some superficial enthusiasm,
there are quite crappy sounding punky brewster riffs that do nothing
else than wasting the decent riffs! And what about the blasting
drums that sound like a pecking chicken? It sounds fucking flat!
(Tac Tac Tac... Codac!)
Some simple as fuck powerchorded riffs
sound blatantly flat and uninspired... And what about some screaming
vocals that reminds me how sodomized chiken sound irritating? It
seems from the visual "vaginal tampons exorcism" and the
whole musical mix the band isn't serious and chose the "fuck
off we do what we want" way... Ok, but that do not excuse the
important presence of gayness, quite funny (too pooositive) riffs
and flat chicken blasts! And anyway, since they don't give a fuck,
I'm also free to not give a flying fucker as well: THIS BAND FUCKING
SUCKS! Extreme music isn't for chicken. Screaming "Cot Cot
Codac" or "Soooooooooooodomize meeeeeee" with a tiny
chiky vox, and playing the "Tac Tac Tac Codac" bla bla
blasts on the dru-drums isn't extreme, neither mu-musically interesti-ting,
or chi-chick app-appealing.
Do not support chiken grind or be
fucked by your local perverse farmer Ahr Ahr.
Average and not
'serious' enough... At least for those who like their music played
with the guts!
My opinion might have been influenced by the fact I live in the
same suburb than GRONIBARD and feel exhausted with this stupid "grindcore"
for nudist posers, the "Oh comm'on, let's be fuuunnn!!! We're
jumping pandas on an evil christmas tree!!" funny grïndcore
friendsheep, and all the nu metal fans turning into these kinds
of crap to seems "breeeewtal"... But that's the way I
currently feel ISACACARUM to be.

This all white-packaged album begins quite well with
a fast riff that owns the grim blackened spirit! As I spelled before
in some cold worlds, their Black metal is also mid placed and includes
some more variations, under this cold influence of the most nauseabond
sin I vision the remembrances of very old EMPEROR on their first
full-length LP (but without the worked on melodies and keyboards).
