Debut albums are so exciting. They are the first true full length release and promising tell of what the band’s sound is all about. Some debut albums are amazing (ex. Caladan Brood) and some are left in the bargain bin at your local used CD shop, but it’s always fun to jam a bands 1st album and find out if they are worth a shit or not. Abhorrent Deformity, a brutal death metal band who grabs a little bit from the deathcore genre as well, has Entity of Malevolence for their debut release and it’s a very good first release.
Guttural. Slamming. Brutal. Death. Nothing else is even truly needed to be said because Kraanium captures everything we love about brutal death metal. Gravity blasting over rolling double bass speeds, high tempo tremolo picking into slam riffs that are the epitome of terror, bass work that adds more ferocity to the guitar riffing and vocal work from a maniacal person who only wants to kill. This is Kraanium’s Chronicles of Perversion, one of the best death metal albums to be released this year.
If there is one thing German does right it’s their porn. Secondly, it’s their death metal. Intravenous Contamination’s Drowned in Human Fluids is a death metal offering of epic proportions. Deadly, heavy hitting, powerful and over the top in exciting gore splattering moments, this band’s sound and execution on this release is undeniably worthy of a listen. Hell yes, this is brutal death metal that you need in your life.
Suppuration is a brutal death metal trio from Colombia and their third full length album Devouring Your Prayers is one of the most crushing death metal albums to be released this year. Relentless pain, suffering and death bleeds out of these guys lyrically and musically. The crushing slam riffs are paired well with intense tremolo speeds and blasting. Drum sound is insane as the blasts and double bass just add more layers of catastrophe to the mix. The music is topped with a fine touch of aggressively amazing vocal work. Suppuration have gained a new fan and this album is one of the best out this year.
Brutal death metal bands have been coming out with some really gnarly records lately and you can add Prion’s Uncertain Process to that list of good albums released this year. Uncertain Process is brutality with some technical charm mixed in it. Similar to Gorguts’ unorthodox writing style but with more chunky gore filled riffs filled in between transitions and verses. This Argentinian trio brings a lot of music to the table and the end result is a satisfyingly brilliant brutal death metal buffet.
‘Party slam’ knuckleheads in Party Cannon finally release a full length album and it’s as rough and edgy as you would want it to be from this band. From the samples that cracked me up to the epic guitar slams, brutal death metal gutturals and powerful snare punch on every single track, Party Cannon’s Bong Hit Hospitalisation is filled with so much good content that I often asked myself: “Who knew brutal death metal could be so fun?!”
Mortal Torment’s new album Cleaver Redemption drops this fall and we’re lucky enough to show off the first sample of what these brutal death metal bastards can do. This song is fucking intense. Enjoy. Be on the look out for this album on Gore House Productions later this year!

This is it!?! Coathanger Abortion return after 6 long years with their new album Observations of Humanity and the first thing we’re greeted with is a Fight Club intro? Ugh. Alright I’ll get through this….and here we go. Mild brutal death metal with usual suspects in song writing, formula and execution. Songs of gore, murder and odd butchering and yet I am bored to death with what I am hearing. Tired production, horrid sound and boring composition makes this album not listenable in my book. There is so much out there and this isn’t one of them.
Abiotic have returned with their sophomore release on Metal Blade Records called Casuistry! A very fine tuned machine of technical death metal power. Using styles and techniques found in all aspects of death metal, Abiotic creates a sound that calls out to just about everyone. Musically, it’s one of the best technical death metal albums to be released this year. A massive step up from their debut album, Casuistry is a fantastic record.
Hailing from the majestic area known as Minnesota, Incinerate have returned with Eradicating Terrestrial Species, a death metal album with emphasis on decent riffing, precise drumming and wonderful production. The rich sounds come through and gives us a good technical aspect of the music that can be heard clearly. The bass guitar sounds incredibly good on my headphones and the crushing brutal sections of this album are a massive force of music.
