NABEG (Uk) All rights revoked CDr. 2017.
This is jazz grind experimental space rock/ Noisecore and it doesn’t suck.
I was impressed by the amount of Neptunian weed they should have smoke to come
up with it.
Imagine a mixture of jazzy rhythms, changes on rhythms, with grindcore
influences, and harsh noise & space experimental stuffs on the top.
The music is technical, very active and full of changes. At first hear it could
sound like a mess but it is not, things go on together quite well (If you think
about the intensity and some space/ absurd state of mind).
It sounds like if 70’s Krautrock musicians were raised listening to grindcore,
or if old CEPHALIC CARNAGE were on drugs (!) and got more experimental. Or
perhaps if RUINS (Jap) did put less emphasis on riffs and got more 70’s space
rock influences. (I’m not an expert, but perhaps FANTOMAS weren’t so far by
This is not easy to listen, but once you get into it, it can provide
interesting listening and some intensity. Fans of extreme experimental music
should check it out.
(Fra) Demo 2013. CDr. Self-brutallized.
I was beginning to
feel a lack of new bands in the French deep and brutal underground...
Did they all surrender to plastic production? Did they all turn
No. Hopefully for your brutallized hears, NAHBOM
is a new brutal and quite technical band lacerating the internal
meat with enough colors to keep your internal painting more alive
than frozen shades of grey.
Their music happens to remind me
of mid old DEEDS OF FLESH, NILE, early NECROPHAGIST, old YATTERING
(Maybe?) and a bit of CANNIBAL CORPSE ("The bleeding").
pleasant brutalizes in the fact everything isn't uber-technical
nor always fast, the tracks are quite structured with ups and lows
and you find traces of "melodies" (The last two tracks
are better under this angle)... Well, this could please those who
didn't get enough of DEEDS OF FLESH's "Mark of the legion"
or some NILE for example.
I appreciate the fact their production
is totally natural. Ok, the drums doesn't sound like a tic tic clock
and the guitars aren't as plasticized as the last expensive car,
but it brings some cool underground charm to the whole... (It sounds
a bit like a gig with a cleaner production).
The four songs don't
have exactly the same sound level, so this sounds a bit more like
This demo isn't perfect, and I could plug the infernal
criticizing brain torment to throw every imperfect points in your
poor reader's face, but aren't you bored with facial molestation?
So I will only say they have a quite cool sense of building quite
technical yet edible tracks, with some quite catchy riffs here and
Wish them a NAHBOMINABLE improvement.
SUICIDE (Ita) The old family is still alive Demo tape. 2010.
STAY PURE Recs.
Hu Ho, I didn't really expect to hear such
kind of thrash metal in the middle of thousands of "We play
fast, and only fast, and only fast" bands that all sound the
same in their raw alcoholic German worshippance... This Italian
philharmonic quintet choose a way that's much closer to the bay
area genre of the 80's, and hu ho it really sounds like it was areated
by a big thrashing ventilator: The giant ventilator that refreshes
your mind as if you mistakenly put your head in the reactor of an
airbus plane just before take-off.
So so, this sounds very much
like old EXODUS ("Fabulous disaster") meets old OVERKILL,
on many aspects: The riffs taking both the fast and mid-paced "moche"
side, the special vocals (You know this crushed rage that sometimes
seems to come from the "nose") and the also quite metallic
production... When I listen to this demo, I feel back listening
to the old OVERKILL "Wrecking your neck" double live album,
and I could also hear a bit of old METALLICA (Master/ And justice),
a bit of FAITH OR FEAR and eventually a bit of… Hum no, I won’t
bet my remaining ball on uncertain issues.
This sounds quite
efficient and refreshing, but there could also be negative points
for the regular bangers : For example the production might be a
little to powerful and modern for the most traditionalist ones,
and the vocals could displease some peoples, but these two elements
wouldn't bother those who really like old Bay area...
not a so big listener of all that is bay areated, I couldn't say
if this demo is so catchy and slumpowering, but at least it could
provide some nice listenings to fans of old EXODUS/ OVERKILL.
(Usa) Demo CDr'08.
15 years ago, a band called JACKYL had
a song entitled "She loves my cock". It worked quite well
to irritate the press, and spread their name, and even for me it
worked... Because this mighty demonic incantation, "She loves
my cock", still surfaces in my mind, eventhough I wasn't a
fan of this band's AC/DC influenced hard rock... Well, I basically
meant to be curious a band didn't call themselves NECROCOCK yet...
What are they waiting for? An inquisitory dick reminder? Ah Ah
NECROSQUATCH has nothing to do with cock, dick and things like that
(Unless they try to play squatch with your balls... Which would
be really painful Necro -squatch ahah)), but would rather play something
like a mixture between fast "Death/ black/ grind" and
heavier death metal... So it's quite "varied" in the extremes.
faster patterns would globally evolve between pure MARDUK style,
little more "melodic" Swedish death black and some rawer
stuffs like HATEWAVE, with little touches of grind. The heavier
parts are rather in the death metal fields while it could take from
mid old BOLT THROWER, old CANNIBAL CORPSE ("Tomb...")
or heavy CARCASS... When it's not mid placed black metal influenced
by BATHORY (But there should surely be better comparisons) or mid
placed Death black metal whatever...
At the beginning of the
playing, I imagined something very blastful because of the grinding
opener à la later ROTTEN SOUND and raw production which made them
sound like an EXHUMED on "Gore metal", but the following
shows less grind of the blast. (It's not really a raw production,
but something quite massive with overdriven bass, which makes it
more extreme than comfortable to listen to).
I'm globally not
too emotionally impressed, I feel a part of the riffs is just Ok
or everheard while the vocals aren't particularly right to the point
half of the time... According to some elements such as the opening
riff, I feel like they have ways for improvement... They could for
example rework some structures to make it more sadistically flowing,
and so avoid some listener-feeling of "hesitations", or
they could increase the intensity (With more grind?)... Ok, it could
be worse, there's no real painful listening problem, and you could
like it, and you could dig it during gigs while trying to break
your neck, and I could also insert my massive inquisitory cock of
bestial revenge right in your imploring asshole, but writing reviews
isn't basically about making friends. Getting critical for a dozen
minutes can be nice and also help the bands (If they don't believe
too strongly in their own perfection). To be more necro, take your

(Usa) Worship destruction Demo tape. 2013. HORROR REGIME Recs.
SCHOOL METAL FUKK
ALCOHOLIC NECRO PUNK
If evil lies in the
Heaven lies in the underwears.
This tape begins
in a way that is very influenced by early CELTIC FROST, mid-paced
old school metal, to then evolve in a more punk manner closer to
Canadian SLAUGHTER (The song "Incinerator", you know?),
then it becomes a bit too punk for my tastes... And then the last
track almost takes an old grindcore edge (There could be an old
grind emergency à la Repulsion or perhaps Atrocity (Us)).
not a bad tape, even quit cool under some old school angles. This
sounds quite raw, "uncontrolled", the content is probably
more punk than the usual old school/ thrashing stuffs I'm used to.
ago I heard one of the first demos this band released, and wasn't
too fond... With this newer release I find the music of NEKROFILTH
to be better and cooler.
(Usa) Zombie proof sessions Demo CDr. 2009.
There was a giant
bull penis in my mailbox, and it screamed "Hooray!!!"
when I opened the little door... I just wonder if the postman didn't
confuse my box for someone else's... Huh?
Isn't it a quite fitting
introduction for a band called NEKROFILTH? No it is not, but you
will have to live with it!
On this demo, the first track, and
partly the second one sound great... I hear something like early
grindcore à la ATROCITY (Usa) with punk riffs à la SLAUGHTER (Usa)
on "Strappado"... It's not bad in the genre and some riffs
have enough depths to kinda awake some interest. You wish the following
will be as nice and could catch some drunk horror vibe of drunk
terror... Unfortunately for my cybernetic hears, the other songs
tend to become more punk (And more ABSCESS alike) and it turns to
simpler riffs or "We don't care, we are drunk" alike stuffs...
Some riffs still keep this early grind vibe and some Slaughter alike
riffures, but it becomes too much of simple simplicity and we-are-puh-puh-punk-we-don't-give-a-fuh-fuh-
to interest me... I have never been a big fan of punk (Neither in
drublic), and If I don't hear something very good I won't be too
interested... Sometimes you could think about DEFECATION (The first
album), and I know some peoples would hear some REPULSION (While
I would disagree since ATROCITY is closer) or eventually very early
MORTICIAN (Huh? Yes, I mean some SLAUGHTER influenced stuffs), but
most is rather close to punk/ early Hardcore (There are covers of
Negative approach and Dayglo abortion, if you want names)
first tracks show they can come up with great sounding riffs, but
the approximately 9-10 other songs show they can also come up with
something less interesting...
I wish they could focus on the
depths and stronger orgasmic defibrillations to offer something
more haunting, but I have a doubt and a feeling NEKROFILTH would
remain a subproject to play punk stuffs... For underground local
punks and puke-mindeds only.
(Fra) Revenge and supremacy MCD. 2010. Self-released.
French band probably reads a lot about NILE in the reviews they
receive. So here's my niling quota: NILE, NILE, NILE, NILE, NILE,
NILE, NILE, NILE, NILE, NILE, NILE, NILE!!! Are you still thirsty?
You fucking drink-hole! Does it make you feel like an Egyptian goddess
fornicator? You fucking pervert! Anyway now the niling bandwidth
was fulfilled, we can begin the review in comfortable conditions.
I hear on this self-released mini CD doesn't sound THAT much like
NILE in my mummified opinion, ok the taste of Sanders' band can
be felt from here and there but it's not the major savor to flavor...
The brutal death of NEPHREN-KA is quite bound to the blast, with
some technical moments, some quite abrupt breaks, and you could
think about ORIGIN (Without the crazy sweeping), early DEEDS OF
FLESH (When they were blast maniacs, remember the "Trading
pieces" album?), but also some NILE (Who's that?), a bit of
KRISIUN's last records, a bit of MORBID ANGEL, maybe they also like
the brutal aspect of DEICIDE... And I feel like quoting French bands
from the past, so I will do it now: DEVILIUM, BYATIS (It's more
or less in the same brutal and blasting category, yet with some
Death metal roots that don't take everything from the USBD or core-blasturgy)
of their songs have the same brutal washing machine effect you could
find in other outfits like KRONOS for example (It's not my fave
particularity of brutal death metal, I prefer the feeling to be
more atmospheric, but at least it's better than no effect at all),
other songs have more of an "old school brutal death"
approach, which can please me more when it develops more atmospheres
or goes towards some feeling of intense brutalized damnation.
style is quite compressed, the playing and recording sounds professional,
but I miss something catchy or brain hammering... Maybe they didn't
fuck enough Egyptian godesses to be able to express a really strong
feeling of accomplishment and domination (Who knows?) and maybe
there's a little too much of blast/ double kicks sometimes (I said
"maybe", because adding a little poisonous cherry on the
brutal cake would perhaps be enough to reenergize the listening)
NEPHREN-KA isn't one of my six fave French band to evolve in the
"Death metal" world, but their recording isn't bad and
could satisfy the need of some brutal heads. I just wish the feeling
would be more burning sometimes... (It might be worth the neckache
to see them live, if they can have decent sound conditions...)
NEROCAPRA (Ita) Mefisto Promo CDr. 2013.
This promo contains only 3 songs from the "Mefisto manna" album and
the style of the songs is a bit different from one to another, but globally
what you have here is pretty old styled death metal with a recurring tendency
to use thrashing riffs and fast beats, with a quite raw production. Globally
this reminds me of old MERCILESS (Swe) or mid old PROTECTOR, with some old Swedish
death, and more insanity in the vocals.
The first song of this promo is the more insane in the structures and playing,
there are more riffs/ tempo changes or strange ideas than in the other tracks.
It occurs to taste like early ATROCITY (Ger/ When they were a Death metal
band), old THRONEUM (Vocals) or maybe early SADISTIK EXEKUTION ("The
magus"), with a thrashing death metal basis.
Then the second song is more classical, it begins in a more Swedish manner
(Mysterious theme), then comes back to thrashing death.
The third song is in the middle between the thrashing stuff and regular death
metal. It's not so far from the Swedish second wave of OSDM sometimes
Well this is decent stuff in the thrashing death style, I think the production
is a bit too raw for my tastes, but NEROCAPRA could please fans of the
thrashing style who aren't against some exuberance/ craziness.
NUKE (Usa) Delta city
Demo tape. 2015. DYSTOPIAN DOGS Recs.
Short review, quick death.
NUKE is an old school metal band from Detroit, Michigan, that aims to awake
old/ early satanic metal with some successes.
For a strange reason when I listened to this tape at first, I was too brief and
classified the content as "thrash metal/ punk" which was wrong AhAh.
Indeed the content is early 80's evil speed metal, but no this is NOT rock'n
roll in the Motorhead/ early Bathory style, our hears are surrounded by a
rather very angry form of heavy metal that almost tends to thrash metal. Think
about very early SLAYER (First album only), very early DESTRUCTION, some
evilness à la EXORCIST, some old LIVING DEATH ("Protected from
reality"), some old KING DIAMOND/ MERCYFUL FATE.
Wait, isn't there some ball kicking CARNIVORE inside? I bet I won't have to
shave my balls by saying so!
One song has a really heavy-metallish part with more melodies à la early IRON
MAIDEN, but the whole is a bit more kicking... Well, well, a heavy metal touch
is regularly present, but it's closer to early KING DIAMOND/ MERCYFUL FATE than
The vocals are quite fkn metal, between these angry vocals and more high-pitched
typically 80's screams. Perhaps the content is destined only to big metal
maniacs, I don't know.
This is a quite kicking and quite good tape in the "retro" metal
style, perhaps not from the most catchy/ killer bands I heard in the 80's
style, but still worth some hear-degradation for angry metal maniacs.
