Slam. What does that term even mean in 2019? If you have never heard Devourment, then you do not know what slam is. After a rather lengthy wait (6 years to be exact) the mighty Devourment return with arguably the heaviest album that will come out this year. An absolute murder scene that track after track, continuously beats you to death.Read More
Dictionary.com defines Grief as this:
keen mental suffering or distress over affliction or loss; sharp sorrow; painful regret.
a cause or occasion of keen distress or sorrow.
Listen to this record as you read this review, and you tell me if Legends Shall Fall’s “Grief” fits that definition.
(hint: it does)
If you’re like me, this was a highly anticipated album met with mixed reviews. They promised it to be as heavy as Iowa. They said it would be much darker and more brutal than anything they have ever written. Have they accomplished that? Read more to find out.Read More
Thy Art Is Murder has been a staple in modern deathcore for the past decade. With songs like “Whore To a Chainsaw” “Reign of Darkness” and now “Human Target”, it’s easy to see why TAIM has been under a microscope. Check out this review and see what we think!Read More
Consecration are back with their brand new record “Fragilium”. They are also our first ever repeat review.
“If you walk into the fenlands at sunset, leaving the last house at your back, you will follow a road that slowly dwindles to a footpath as the sky darkens and the shadows lengthen. With a cutting wind always in your face, bringing tears to your eyes, you'll reach a place where the path finally peters out to nothing. There is no light but the stars and the horizon is as empty and distant as it was many cold miles ago. The only discernible features of this desolate landscape are the gnarled, stunted, wind sculpted trees that skulk like warped spiders, poised to attack when you turn your back. It's a place with no name but loneliness, where all the sorrows in the world gather to cry their laments to the endless sky; and the sound of their song is the sound of Consecration...”Read More
“ I: Voice” is the sum of 5 years of creativity and focused work. The music plays as a stream of consciousness - jumping often from one area of the metal spectrum to the next with recurring melodies and vibes throughout for the purpose of bringing about an overwhelming sense of nostalgia. Since Essence Of The Land & "Two Demons" came out, we worked to build upon and elaborate on our musical style and mission statement. From what started as an idea of modern death metal with hints at black metal evolved into a more progressive, unique, and “epic” ethos. Horrifying & beautiful, dynamic & aggressive, harmony found through dissonance, an ebb and flow through drama and resolution, a flirtation with memory, a call for collaboration, personality, and reality - immense emotional energy seamlessly woven within the death metal genre.”
“All of that experience and undiminished intent has been poured into the creation of new album - Parasitic Slavery. Released through that powerhouse of brutality, Comatose Music, on May 3rd this is no album for the weak. Recorded under the watchful eye of Jonny Pettersson (Those Who Bring The Torture, Wombbath, Rogga Johansson etc) Parasitic Slavery is one cataclysmic, explosive collection of incredible death metal. As good as Futile Creation was, Parasitic Slavery annihilates it with an imperious magnificence born of absolute self belief. This is the ultimate firestorm. This is the next level of death metal supremacy. This is Body Harvest - Parasitic Slavery!”Read More
