Manchester’s (UK) ultimate brutal death metal band Ingested have returned with the release of their new album properly called “The Architect of Extinction” because this in fact is nothing but genocide. The band doesn’t reveal any new tricks but instead tap into their familiar sound that they’ve had since their debut album “Surpassing the Boundaries of Human Suffering”. Immediately the chugging and tremolo guitar work pummels in, the drumming is pure obliteration and vocally it’s profoundly brutal. Teetering on the edge of slamming brutal death metal and deathcore, Ingested seem to keep it generally on the slam side of things with their writing style. Fans of both styles will love this though.
Nothing beats some good ol bloody death metal when you’re in the mood for it. Want something new from someone you may have never heard of? I suggest Gorelust from Canada! This rotten slab of metal meat only comes with bloated riffs, maggot filled drum work, oozing bass tone and fowl vocal work. Brutal death metal suffers from a lot of bands whom replace quality riffing with slam riffs these days and it’s finally grand to hear a band whom want to shove as many god damn riffs down our throats as possible within 10 songs. These tracks are just heavy as hell. “We Are The Undead” delivers 10 counts of aggravated battery.
Parasitic Ejaculation…..that is a name you just don’t over look nor forget. I listened to their last album, Rationing the Sacred Human Remains, and rather enjoyed their over the top brutal death/slam. When I heard the boys in the band were back with a new album, I knew I had to listen to it and I enjoyed every single second of the slam and eggs greatness. 2014 really didn’t have any good slam albums but 2015 is kick started with this fine bit of heaviness; Echoes of Depravity is packed with slamming riffs, beast like bass tone and crushing drum work. Vocally, expect the heaviest guttural act since Defeated Sanity and Devourment.
I am proud & honored that Gore House Productions are letting Headbang or GTFO premiere the new lyric video for the Hideous Rebirth’s “Wretched Torture”! The track closes their new album “Completely Devoured” and it features a hilarious introduction but the music is heavy as hell. I hope you are ready to headbang because this song is crushing. If you enjoy the massive riffs and vocal hell of Troglodyte, early Cattle Decapitation and Disgorge then you’ll love Hideous Rebirth!
Decimation return with this diabolical death metal worship album called “Reign of Ungodly Creation” and it is indeed a take over by a few gentlemen who are ungodly. The creation they’ve come up with is pure death metal with some slight tech and chaotic atmosphere. On their Facebook page they list their influences and that right there perfectly explains how Decimation sound. Just fierce, rich with riffs and fire summoning drumming. Dance with the fury of Decimation.
Coprocephalic’s “The Oath of Relinquishment” is a highly produced but mildly entertaining death metal album. The guttural vocal work is poorly executed and the music itself is rather boring. The derivative nature and delivery of this album means that there is nothing gripping or longlasting at all about this album. If you want plain brutality and are too lazy to find something better, then I suppose this will work but shame on you. There is definitely better out there. 2 out of 5
If you need ultra brutal death metal with plenty of savage riffs, death growls and blast beats, then Omnihility is exactly what you are looking for. As soon as you press play the hectic wave of death metal fury just overwhelmingly powers forth and it just doesn’t let up the entire time. ‘Deathscapes of the Subconcious’ is the death metal that enthusiasts have been wanting for years.
Hailing from the death metal scene here in Kansas City is a sound of vile, putridity and excellent guitar riffs. Torn the Fuck Apart are part guttural slam and part technical death metal, sort of like a raunchy combination of Cannibal Corpse and Dying Fetus in a way. The result is a tasty morsel of gore filled disgusting death metal.
Combine ruthless grindcore with ground shaking brutal death metal and you have Inhuman Remnants. The band from down under even has a logo that wants to kill you. Gah! Inattentional Blindness gives us the same amount of highly technical brutality, guitar melodies and devastating vocal work as their brothers in the band Ingested, but Inhuman Remnants give us more groove with their riffs and really focus on melodic leads over these tasty riffs.
Artificial Brain – “Labyrinth Constellation”. Highly technical and chaotic death metal hell that is very similar to Gorguts in many ways. The anxiety attack of music played on this album is pure brutal bliss. Low vocals, muddy melodies and agonizing drum work gives us the album that Gorguts and Ulcerate gave us last year, yet with a slightly different artistic drive that makes this album unique and stand out from the others. Labyrinth Constellation is terrifying and simply enjoyable on all fronts and should appeal to anyone and everyone who enjoys death metal of this caliber. The low gutturals also gives this album sort of a brutal death feeling to it and it fits in perfectly with the brutality within the music. Beautiful destruction in audio form. 4.5 out of 5
