(Swe) Kaamos CD’02 CANDLELIGHT.
KAAMOS strikes back with
its firstbdeathraging album, and no deception in sight. Arg! They
did it!!!! This album is simply as godly as a classic like SADISTIC
This time, the production
is really incredible, thanks to mister Messiah Marcollin himself
(if you don´t know this name, then check the whole CANDLEMASS
re releases and kneel down before the man!). No really technical
tunes, nor sweet melodies, but though one can easily feel that theses
guys are swedish and nothing else. They play again "Khem",
and "Curse of aeons" from their previous demo, and then
these songs keep on crushing like a bulldozer. They put also some
intros like on the song "Doom of man" (which reminds me
the ambient you can find in Lovecraft´s litterature, with
the references to the mad arab!!! Killer tune, full of intense mid
paced riffing!). KAAMOS is the incarnation of a hateful chaos, KAAMOS
breeds an intense feeling of thundering insanity that can be found
in IMMOLATION´s or AUTOPSY´s death metal. Even if the
tunes are absolutely in the same vein than the ones on the demo,
it is so godly that you don´t care about any evolution or
not. You just feel the purity of a band who exactly knows how a
good death metal has to be played in order to possess your mind.
As for PENTACLE, SADISTIC INTENT or REPUGNANT, KAAMOS knows how
to produce it´s own identity and how to stay heavily linked
to the good old times, but without any trace of copy. A death metal
that comes directly from the guts. Excellent work, and I would dare
to say that it is already a classic.
(Fra) Synthetically revived CD'02 DIAMOND Prod.
It's a pleasure
to receive this kind of promos as it really pleases me and I don't
often get into what I got for reviews! It was all the more fucking
welcome since I received it the new year's day and we had some good
moshing and headbanging moments on this CD that's one of the first
Brutal listenings of 2003! Ah ah!
As a whole their style can
be defined as a good mix between MORBID ANGEL and SUFFOCATION, Brutal
Their stuff is technical but not too much, with
parts ranging from the blast beats to the more mid placed or heavier
moments of American Brutal Death. There are also some old school
Death metal punching drum beats! A few old BOLT THROWER ("Warmaster")
mid placed parts with double bass drums may be quoted while some
attracting riffs reminded me some victorious KRISIUN's stuffs on
"Apocalyptic revelations"!! It awakes in me the memories
of past Death Metal glories! Some little melodic Death touches
à la DEATH/ ATHEIST are included in a nice way and bring
a few variations. They own a few MORGOTH "Cursed" like
'sick of existence' feel on some riffs that are more discordant
(such as the opening riff of "Trihedron"). It's well arranged
with no bullshit included.
Good technical leads à la MORBID
ANGEL that sounds hallucinating and full of guts! There's a KRISIUN
feel in some vocals even if the whole are more DEICIDE/ MORBID ANGEL
influenced! The only things I would reproach here are: a few
melodies sound too much like some old MAYHEM, EQUINOX (1st CD) for
exemple, the snare drum isn't very hearable in the blast parts,
I like less the 3rd and 4th tracks and it may sound a bit long after
the 3/4 of the album if you aren't a lot in Brutal Death metal...
but it's rather minor negative points according to the whole quality
of the release! It's a good Brutal Death album with some good
tracks and a good powerfull production! This is rare to get this
kind of strong release from France! Fans of SUFFOCATION and MORBID
ANGEL: check this album as you won't regret it!
KAIJU (Usa) Unwilling
Sacrifices MCD. 2010. Slaney Recs.
Semen, you never know, it might flood you.
Dying in a giant sea of putrid semen.
Eaten alive by voracious spermatozoids.
This band might have fit on Razorback recs, or not.
They play horror movie influenced Death metal, ranging from mid-paced to slow
I smell traces of semen and blood remaining from the old corpses of
NECROPHAGIA, HELLHAMMER, OBITUARY ("End complete"), or perhaps
JUDECCA, with a little of DEATH ("Leprosy") or ASPHYX.
There's some heaviness, and some nice low vocals, but the composing leaves to
be desired, and some riffs... This is no brain-shaking, maximum relax death
metal, maybe so relaxed that the riffs turn out to be too common...
Six years ago or more, this MCD might have been a quite cool little jar of
semen for your putrid girlfriend to "swallow", and it contains an
atmosphere, but there's so many average death metal released recently that I
have to say no, and refuse the auditory penetration.
I heard a previous release of theirs and kept a better remembrance, so hopefully
for KAIJU this was only a single case of mistargeted morbid ejaculation.
K. plays a mix of Melodic Black metal and Heavy
metal that could remind bands like BAL SAGOTH or other formations
playing a style I don't know a lot. Their use of athmospheric synths
reminds me of old EMPEROR while some Heavy metal riffs sound a bit
like MERCYFUL FATE's "9" LP or KING DIAMOND's "The
eye" for exemple, but it's far from reaching the same inspiration
at every levels.
Some melodic keyboards could remind of DIMMU
BURGER'98 and there are some mid old PARADISE LOST touches on the
In my opinion, it's just another average band, I think
those who bought this CD at the time may have forgotten it on a
full of dusk pile of common CDs...
(Swe) Karnarium Ep'04. NUCLEAR ABOMINATIONS.
Spirits of the
deep waters, no real need to summon thee, coz the strange and wet
things that occur inside won't be awaken this time! No.
KARNARIUM sounds better than on their demo I could listen to few
years ago, there's nothing glorious or morbidly shocking. Only quite
decent old school Death metal with very early DEATH/ AUTOPSY influences,
and some old INCANTATION or blackened death touches thrown from
here and there.
This might be a cool band to see live, but apart
from a nice mood and cool influences there's nothing special or
I could call "Good".
The production sounds old (it
lacks of power and clarity, but it's not really raw). With more
rehearshards they might improve coz they doesn't have a bad technical
level... but unfortunately hardworking doesn't help concerning inspiration.
it's just another average old school Death band; nothing to praise
or hallucinate one, unless you're damn fucking drunk or stay as
a strong local supporter.
"THE PROPHECY" CD’00 NUCLEAR BLAST
liked this band too much but I definitely have to say this cd has
its moments. there are some very intense, BRUTAL passages to be
found, and they sometimes throw in some pretty cool emotional riffs
('gateway to extinction'). The vocals range from raw hardcorish
'grunts' to harsh shriekings. There are some bland riffs to be found
here and there plus they have some gay swedish sounding melodies
I dont really like. Its nothing phenomenal, just a cool cd you'll
listen to once in awhile. (yet this is way better than 'temple of
knowledge' in my opinion)

This is an express crusty corpse before cleaning my collection.
This band/ Sub project plays something like old school crustcore...
these words convey various meanings, so I will roughly describe the content:
Mostly dbeat, fast punk hardcore, to be more powerful than usual punk, and also

(Swe) Horned holocaust CD'04. INVICTUS Prods.
To be free
from any label's promotional listing is the best way to keep running
your zine in almost total freedom and overall not being bored by
face-smashing promotional mailbombings! But it happens some underground
labels send you something without even knowing your zine name or
what you do. This time it's ugly Black metal in its rotten and crass-enjewelled
form that took incarnation under this CD of "KILL"! What
you hear is simple and raw crude Black metal that could remind of
old DARKTHRONE and MAYHEM ("De mysteriis"). Some mid placed
riffs sound like some old HORNA, for this kind of mule-running mid-placed
and quite joking cynicism, if you see what I mean. Some blasts (with
bassdrum and snare at the same time) sound quite crappy and weak
in my hears. Some blasting accelerations sound cool. Even if some
DARKTHRONE influences can obviously be found, I didn't find in KILL's
music some kinda hypnotizing or 'head-broken-reversed-logic' some
strange DARKTHRONE tracks have. Some fast moments could remind of
MAYHEM (Old), but I didn't detect the epic the epic depressiveness
this cult Norwegian band once had. It's influenced and sounds similar,
but not as emorguetional. All in all this album sounds as an ok
or decent one, but even if an obscure mood is there I didn't detect
really catchy or intensively fuse-blowing guitars to make of it
a classic album worth entering my spikes collection! So it
might be a quite good album for the raw and crude Black metal fans
who need a lot of albums in this kind of simple and cold darkened
metal, but I'm not a Black metal fan and it isn't enough to take
my head away from my supportive souterraine teleportation and other
kinds of obscure acid breathing souterraine suportations! With the
few passing of time I have, I can say it's a decent album with both
its mistakes, real weaknesses, and quite good points... I'm not
far from thinking it's a common album compared to the current average
of Black metal releases.
THE THRILL (Fra) Pit MCD’93 SEMETERY.
It's always good
to find some older releases of some bands you really enjoy! Even
more when the older items are rare!
This MCD that's more on
the depressive rock side of KILL THE THRILL has what's needed to
please the fans of depressive and full of distress musics! Welcome
in the infinite void of torment, when the guitars scream as lamenting
souls in brutal despair. Isolationist dark rock with intense depressive
Even if this MCD isn't totally tortured, it has more
chaos and discordances than the last 2 KILL THE THRILL albums I
know. It's also simpler. Depressed and low in the vein of THE SWANS.
Crushed in the vein of early GODFLESH. It has some early punk rock/
dark goth à la KILLING JOKE or JOY DIVISION. Chaotic guitar noises.
style of his MCD might have grown old a bit, but the music in itself
is still so emotional and depressively engulfing! Once the CD is
on, nothing else has any importance. KILL THE THRILL remains a very
recommended band! Buy or die!
THE THRILL (Fra) Low CD'97 NOISE PRODUCT.
2nd hand CD I paid the low price of 3 Euros! I'm so happy about
it because the Indus metal of KILL THE THRILL is so good, I feel
like I'm going to marry that bastard 2nd hand CD seller! Ah Ah!
knew only the last album of the band, "203 barriers",
and I must say I'm not disappointed by what I hear on this one!
The album begins with the same track that appeared on the BRUTALE
GENERATION compilation CD I heard years ago!
Their music is still
an Indus metal that includes vast emotions that engulf you as an
enormous 10 meters high wave, this is still so deeply pessimistic
and realistic I can't avoid to engulf in the most tragically and
intense parts of my existence! I see a man screaming on the very
top of a so high mountain, screaming and choking on the meaning
and deep functioning of everything on this earth!
still includes some GODFLESH influences in the state of mind, emotions
and riffs, but I feel like it's not as destructed and discordant
as the band of Justin Broadrick. It has some very overdriven guitars,
but it's also full of beauty! On this album, there are less "moody"
samples introduced in and in between the riffs as it may sound more
"pure". Some parts still remind me of the "Ocean
machine" CD recorded by Devin Townsend for its freshness and
vast emotions! Notice there are some nice intros made of samples
between almost every track! This is very good to see a band that's
totally honest with himself when composing its music! And it's rare!
This album full of deep meaning, repetitive cold drum beats,
Excellent sorrowful and depressive riffs, realistic and pessimistic
vocals, is a s good as "203 barriers": Excellent!
THE THRILL is a band I can't advice enough to all those who enjoy
depressive, industrial and sorrowful musics! This is totally fucking
KILL THE THRILL (FRA)
203 Barriers CD’01 SEASON OF MIST
Their was one of their songs
on the BRUTALE GENERATION french underground comp CD! And they're
still in the same darkened depressive/ Indus metal style that makes
the whole world plung 20 meters lower when you play their CD! The
style of KILL THE THRILL is quite hard to describe, since there's
not only some Indus elements in here, but also some rock and few
other elements. But you can be sure that the main high-lines are
fucking obscure! The stylr isn't as corroded as GODFLESH or old
PITCH SHIFTER, I may say it isn't as Brutal... but this isn't the
most important since the obscure feeling is here! Both cold, dehumanized,
fresh and emotionally engulfing! It reminds me of Devin Townsend's
OCEN MACHINE album for the atmospheric/ sky flying side as well!
Great powerfull atmospheres that can be compared to enormous waves
of guitars that crush you under walls of eroded distortions! This
is depressive, melancholic and sad, but also well done and not completely
destructed, so it's still possible to get into it quite easily (contrary
to some other isolasionist musics).
also have found some very little DEPECHE MODE and N.I.N influences
for a few samples, some U2 for vocals... enough said! This album
is a very good one (not to say excellent) in this depressive style
fewer and fewer bands know how to do it good! All the more KILL
THE THRILL is quite unknown! If you're a depressive-head or simply
a darkened music anjoyer, check one of their great albums, you won't
(Pol) Unholy graveyard CD'08. TIME BEFORE TIME Recs.
reader: Suck my Swedish cock! It was kept unwashed and putrid for
years, and was recently tattooed with "Stockholm", so
it will certainly be necro enough for your opportunist needs! Suck
my Swedish cock!!!
But since there are better things in life
than looking after the acts of mindless jet-set sensationalists
of the month, I will let you suck my evil cock, and invoke the minds
of other (real) readers in Poland, to listen to the Death metal
Once the doors of the mental grave are opened, it's
immediately easier to taste the vibrations of the corpse and decrypt
the lines of Kingdom's testimony of death, an evil parchment being
influenced by the second MORBID ANGEL epoch (When they downtuned
more and turned heavily virile), with some ANGEL CORPSE (Second
album), mindless DEICIDE, dark touches of IMMOLATION (But less complex),
brutal death tendencies and few black metal influences or old Death
Those who know my previous releases might hear
similarities with (The morbid angel influenced) HELLSPAWN, AMETHYSTE
(R.I.P), or eventually a bit of CARMINA in the mid placed patterns...
The brutal death tendencies are mostly due to the drum-playing:
He occurs to often blast with kicks and snare at the same time which
makes it quite strongly US sounding by moments, or you find some
Cannibal corpse alike beats... But as far and deep as my mighty
goat penis penetrated the putrid flesh of this album, the spirit
of the band seems to be locked in the dark and hateful... So I guess
my tastes would got towards a more "traditional" drumming,
to underline and empower the evil aspect.
To sum it up, "Unholy
graveyard" is a quite solid album that contains some nice vibes,
it was brutal to explore, but I wasn't impressed to the point of
being possessed by an eternally catchy riff nor forced to cut my
cock and worship ancient tropical deities.
KINGDOM might turn
into something more powerful in the future, if they perfect this
and that imperfection, but for now I can only say it's something
cool and quite brutal the dark way. I might have been a bit more
positive If it was a demo record, but it's an album: Different category,

KOLDBORN is a quite punishing death metal band I
discovered few months ago, it's now time to pay them a little review
since this first full-length isn't bad!
KOLDBORN plays a Death
metal situated right at the middle between a Brutal death grind
à la HATE ETERNAL/ SUFFOCATION (Less technical in this case), and
old school Swedish Death à la DISMEMBER/ GRAVE (mid old), a Deathrock
à la ENTOMBED/ GRAVE and a melodic Death that doesn't sound too
The first thing to attract your attention
are the punishing blasting parts that sounds like the most MORBID
ANGEL influenced riffs of HATE ETERNAL. Hopefully this isn't endlessly
blasting Death metal since some Swedish punching Death metal can
remind of DISMEMBER ("Indecent and obscene") while groovier
breaks and riffs can sound like SUFFOCATION when it doesn't tend
to some kind of Deathrock that could remind of ENTOMBED (rather
"Wolverine blues") or GRAVE ("Soulless"). As
said before, there are melodic death riffs that has sometimes some
Thrash can could remind of AT THE GATES's last works or early THE
CROWN, but don't be afraid : it's not abusively melodic as it keeps
enough energy, and the tracks are rather efficiently built.
understood the tracks are quite varied in the kind of riffs and
rhythms it offers, even if it keeps a Death metal highline.
drummer sometimes blasts à la old HYPOCRISY (Snare and kicks at
the same time). Notice a slower and middle placed track has female
vocals, it doesn't sound bad and it remains heavy.
I wonder if
this album will turn into a memorable brevage of death once in front
or infinity and confronting to the whole death metal culture and
Finally this is a totally professional album
that benefits of a strong, almost Sunlight like old school Death
metal production. Even if KOLDBORN doesn't turn me fucking crazy,
they offer enough rage, energy, know-how and diversity to please
quite exigent Death metal fans! Keep a darkened eye on them? Well,
at least check out their site and Mp3s, you can be sure you'll find
it at least Ok!
THE EXTERMINATOR (Spa) War of the Voivodes CD. 2010. Xtreem
Promos... Are promos the last help for desperate or
ultra lazy reviewers? Does a reviewer really need to receive free
albums if he can't find anything he really wants to talk about?
Anyway I received this record as a promo, so feel free to spit on
my face as you will on any other lazy webzine!
The name of this
band might sound a bit funny for some, while others might remember
it's a song from the second album of VOÏVOD, a time when the band
had more to do with "burning hate" metal than technical
The style of this Spanish band could be considered
as in the same kind of global hard-hitting old metal category, but
the genre is closer to something like early thrash black metal meets
regular black metal and old school thrash ... To be clearer, I sometimes
think about the fast moments of the second and third albums of BATHORY
(Even if it's obviously not the same level of semen ejecting quality),
the most thrashy moments of early DESASTER (Ger), something like
IMPALED NAZARENE ("Suomi finland perkele") minus the crust
approach, a bit of early SODOM and some regular black metal from
1998 (Minus the blasts: A little of MARDUK, a little of WAR, some
old MAYHEM and other things like that)...
In fact a part of the
music just sounds like quite regular black metal for me, so this
might in part explain why I don't get much of a cadaveric erection!
of the music is fast, with the same kind of thrashing rhythm that
could rapidly become boring, I would have preferred more changes
and some blasts and something else... Maybe someone will find it
"extreme" but after a while I'm getting more than a little
disinterested... Ok, sometimes there are more thrash'n roll touches,
and a little more drumming dynamics, but maybe it's just a detail
in the whole picture...
I'm not (And don't wish to become) an
expert of black thrash metal, so don't expect much description or
effort to write a super cool review...
In my opinion this is
just an average album, it lacks of intensity and of something memorable...
But at least it's listenable and sounds quite kicking, so some (drunk)
peoples will like it and praise the testicular virtues of KORGULL
THE EJACULATOR! But I need more, More and MORE! As real semen needs
a contagious evil seed to reach the target of global souls' hypnosis!
(Hol) Serial suicide CD'04 BIZARRE LEPROUS.
Once the cadaver
enters the morgue, there's no enigma but a pile of dead flesh awaiting
its intense crematory session. Once the KOTS CD is in my CD player,
there's no enigma but a big pile of pure shit! This CD definitely
sucks!! Low garbage cyber goregrind programmed on a low quality
mod track (music software) with simplicist riffs, boring rhythms
and expectable structures. Only boring cybershit with low sound
and zero imagination. This isn't even worse being release on CDr,
so why does Bizarre Leprous got out this consumer mocking shit on
a CD? While many are the bored teenagers who do best SMES 'copies'
with their computers? Avoid at all costs! (Possible next step: avoid
B.L.P who needs to release less shit!)
(Cze) Lies CD'95 MORBID.
Between the demo and "Lies",
Krabathor has release 2 albums and a 7’’. But even if I'm
very fond of 2nd zone Death metal, at this time I had really more
urgent releases to listen to, and to tell you everythings if I had
the choice between Brad, Alice in chains, STP or Krabathor, the
choice would be clear. It's more than uncertain I put my hands one
day on these two albums that are anyway unfindable.
is now oriented to a really more Brutal death (one could sometimes
think about Morbid Angel and the first riffs of the album sounds
like Immortal), but it's also more melodic, without lossing the
Thrash side (the strong Metallica color on the melodies of "Unnecessarity"
or on the beginning of "Believe", some parts are almost
like Loudblast) et it defends itself quite well.
It's not guaranteed
you'll listen to this more than 3 times, but "Lies" can
be worth the listening, mostly for the excellent intrumental track
"Believe" that's very melodic and well done.
(Cze) Mortal memories MCD'97 MORBID.
After two tours with
Impaled Nazarene and Cannibal Corpse, Krabathor decides to beat
the flesh till it's still burning as they release this mini CD composed
of two new tracks as well as tree work backs of some older ones.
And who could blame them for that since "Mortal memories"
is the best Krabathor release I've had the opportunity to listen
to? The sound is here, the energy is here, and this Death metal
that strongly tends to Kreator ("Riot of violence" epoch),
even if it brings nothing new, makes it's little effect. And the
first version of "Orthodox", THE hit of Krabathor is here,
even if it's unfortunately inferior to the one that was on the album
and that it's still disfigured by this cheezy lead. Despite that,
it's the Krabathor release to own.
KRABATHOR (CZE) "UNFORTUNATELY

Even if I am definitely not a
Krabathor fan, what the fuck happened to them??! They werent too
great but they really didnt suck as much as they now do!! The production
is utter crap, the riffs and arrangements are amateurish, the drum
patterns are a fucking joke!!! The only thing barely okay in here
is the lead guitar work. Im afraid Krabathor is 'unfortunately dead'

Unfortunately, the spiked underwears are totally
rusted and produce some sounds being as pleasant as an old rotten
I never understood the status KRATORNAS might have in some
very underground subspheres of the "Cult worship". It
sounds chaotic and fast... with a little chaotic/ war atmosphere...
but what's next? Where are the catchy riffs? The powerful feeling?
the case of this vynil, that might be even worse: the guy behind
the project decided to re-record some earliest songs dating back
to before KRATORNAS. (+ a Nunslaughter cover... one more...). It
sounds like bad played thrash with blasts and an unwanted chaotic
playing. It's not tight!! It's really hard to keep listening to
this, unless you enclose and ignore your tastes and musical experiences
in a safely closed hermetic iron box.
I guess the guy might believe
in this, since he sent a promo CDr from fucking Philippines to France...
Some doggydog webzines would have felt an urge of enjewelled compassion
stressing their already selfless words... Sorry but my tastes and

(Usa) the church MCD'00 CICATRIX.
So called "Chaotic
extreme black metal" from the US! Ah Ah! This is pure crappy
black metal noise which shows the inexisting musical habilities
of these 'musicians'! It doesn't stop blasting, but produces only
a garbage of noise as the musicians can't held their guitars nor
drumkit and as no real riff seems to be here! How is it possible
to play music when each 'musician' plays as fast as possible without
taking care of the others? You can only get pure crap! P.U.R.E C.R.A.P!!
Even ANAL CUNT sounds like good musicians compared to this... And
some 'true black metallers' totally worship this band! But you have
to know these so called "True ones" were totally into
commercial techno one year and a half ago! Ah Ah! Ah!

Back and even more
powerfull than on "Black force Domain", back from the
most obscure craters of the Black moon, these brasilian warriors of

a very good Death grind album that's totally extreme! Intense! Brutal
strength in its purest form! Almost blasting from the beginning
to the end, this isn't boring!! How is it possible? It is because
KRISIUN played this CD with the GUTS! The strengthfull harsh vocals, the neverending grind parts, the
ultimate tremolo riffs and the destructive solos will fucking
crush your skull as you will hallucinate the anger and years long
frustrations of the whole poor Brazilian generations!! From
the poorest countries and 3rd world desasters will come the Storm

and convenient Europeans and Americans from their foolish unrealistic
dreams of existence! Fukk you all and Get this exploding nasal crater

in front of your eyes! Those of enjoy pure musical devastation will
adore "Apocalyptic revelation" as it is the best and most
inspired KRISIUN release! AAARGH!
(Fra) Titan's awakening CD'02 WARPATH.
What we've here is
a French Brutal death band that's in the underground since a good
amount of years.
I can feel they have a good metal knowledge
as their music includes various influences, but I found nothing
personal nor expressive here! It's just Brutal death metal thought
with their heads and calculated to sound as a pro Brutal death band.
I didn't find a single touch of creativity here, and I don't
say it to be rude, I've carefully listened to this CD several times
and I just find it sterile!
Some years ago (1998) I was quite
enthusiastic with this kind of French bands as the scene in France
was very weak, but the situation has greatly improved!
I don't respect them for is their posers attitude during gigs: they
really do too much mimics in comparison to the expression they put
into their music! And I heard from several trustfull peoples they
used oil to show their muscles! Ah!
(Bel) 750cc export fear CD'07. ROTTEN TO THE CORE Recs.
minded, flower pot violence! Grrrrooooaaargh!
This band is quite
unusual, even though this word isn't green enough... But at least
it's not what you expect when you read "Grindcore" written
in some distro-list.
The style is not so grrrraggressive and
blast ridden, half of the gardening it sounds like old MUCUPURULENT
(1st album, of pot!) and old IMMURED on matters of music, while
the vocals are rather screamed. The convenience of the pollen execration
could remind of SUPPOSITORY, while grassy touches of early CARCASS
and HAEMORRHAGE ("Grume") could be felt. There's also
a bit of death, black and other stuffs... Some almost "heavy
grind" riffs are kinda cool and slurping when you just rubbed
your nectar brushwood all around some fat-rounded bitches, while
a part of the riffism do not do much and would rather slow down
the gardening instincts of embalming... Soap, I can't say KRUAGRE
especially impressed me, it was only nice to find some "heavy
grind" touches of the obese à la old MUCUPURULENT... But it
might kinda turn on big fans of the style... For now it's only average
stuff to smoke, hope they'll purify their green stuff to increase
the percentage of THC! FLOWER POT VIOLENCE FOREVER!!
(Hol)/ SPINEBENDER Split Ep'99 BEYOND Recs.
I was so happy to find this split Ep in a french
distro! I heard some KRUSH stuffs during some smoke and drunk parties
and the KRUSH stuffs were going on very well! KRUSH plays good
Crust/ Punk! With good arrangements, nice riffs, punching energy,
screamy vocals! (but not too much and not always... some punk vox
are also here!) ! Perfect for fans of DISRUPT! I've got
the feeling those who enjoy old school Thrash death may dig the
KRUSH Crust as well! Nice lyrics such as the ones of "Without
a tear", "The need for greed" or "The effort
remains zero". They own the Crust riffs that sound full of
disgust for this life of shit and tear the guts! Some riffs kill
in the Crust style! One of my top 5 killing krust bands!
On the other
side of this split Ep comes SPINEBENDER. Their style is Crust/ Punk/
Grind with screamy vocals. But I find nothing special in their riffs,
it's just notes that makes some noise but makes me feel nothing.
Sounds Ok but they're far behind the efficiency of KRUSH!
good split Ep!
(Hol)/ DISTROY (Hol) Split Ep'02 ROADKILL Recs.
is a bloody night full of energy and nice punching beats with these
2 new KRUSH split Eps I ordered! A bash of good energy in my head
that's full of Death and grindcore! (No purulent speech for this
The KRUSH tracks begin with a Grind riff and the first
track is in the Grind/ Crust style in its whole! Some remindable
riffs would be detekted and these tracks are a bit more grindy!
Follows well done Crust punk, nice riffs, nice beats, this is
a good track in the style, but I prefer their split Ep with SPINEBENDER
that's fucking killer in the Krust style!They remind me a bit of
old EXTREME NOISE TERROR's demo days on this one!
you get a Japanese Crust punk band called DISTROY. Well this sounds
Ok but it's also too "light" for me: they sound rather
like punk than real Crust (that's just heavier and more powerful!).
Notice there's some leads. Their music doesn't suck, but I don't
like their stuff that much.
another good Ep!
OF AZAZEL (Usa) Osculus infernum CD'03 ARCTIC Music.
review only stuffs you only enjoy (or at least stuffs you can gladly
review) is a big utopia, but I'm not so far from this thanks to
meticulously selected MP3s!
This time I received a promo of
KULT OF AZAZEL that plays fast Black metal of the 3rd wave (Sweden/
Norway). This is rather fast, and quite raw, as it could remind
of MARDUK or ALLEGIANCE (less melodic). Some other bands such
as WAR, MAYHEM (mid old, a little bit), NECROMICON (a little bit,
but less melodic) could also be mentioned as a comparison. This
seems to be a serious band, there are no funny melodic riffs nor
wimpy melodies. The whole is tight, well produced, some riffs are
Ok. But I'm not a Black metal fan, and I've found nothing special
nor any part that quote my attention. After a few tracks, I've got
the feeling it becomes quite repetitive.
And average CD that
remains Ok and that may be pleasant for the big Black metal fans
who want more than the bands mentioned before.
(Australia) Finger food fetish for the morbidly anormal CD’04 RAZORBACK.
