Video Review: Unmerciful – Ravenous Impulse

Video Review: Unmerciful – Ravenous Impulse

Topeka, Kansas…..not much happening around these parts. Sure they have their moments but for the most part it’s a drive by city. Unless of course UNMERCIFUL is playing a show that night, then you stop and watch them kill it because these guys definitely know how to create a bone crushing display of death metal mastery. “Ravenous Impulse” is a must listen. The album drops July 22nd on Unique Leader Records. Video review after the jump.

Review: Whitechapel – Mark of the Blade

Review: Whitechapel – Mark of the Blade

Love em or hate em, Whitechapel is back with another new record “Mark of the Blade“, keeping up with theme for their infatuation of the tool that cuts things. This album is their 6th studio full length and marks the 10 years that the band has been together. While many fans and metal horde would say that this band is the king of deathcore, the band itself has evolved over time furthering themselves from just the typical deathcore sound. We’ve seen this occur on several past albums (Whitechapel & Our…

Review: Mercurial – Of Mercury

Review: Mercurial – Of Mercury

Hailing from Sedalia, MO is a young band of musicians called Mercurial who have created something that is more than just death metal. These guys put out a sound that is very similar to Gorguts in many ways. From the song writing to the overall execution of the sound, these guys create a soundscape within this EP that is very menacing and ominous as well as catchy and enjoyable. Constant tempo changes combined with well written compositions, they blend fury with stable song writing.

Review: Deceptionist – Initializing Irreversible Process

Review: Deceptionist – Initializing Irreversible Process

Debut albums are incredibly important for many reasons. It’s a risk for any label to release a debut album. It’s important for the band to nail their sound and deliver a product that will blow the minds of those whom listen to it. It’s also the first time people will be hearing the band for the first time and this is the sound they will remember. Fortunately, Deceptionist’s debut album “Initializing Irreversable Process” is something that will benefit the band, label and more importantly the listener. These barbarians from Rome…

Review: Aborted – Retrogore

Review: Aborted – Retrogore

Aborted is a Belgium death metal band that just seems to get better and better the longer they go. After a period of uncertainty, they seemed to rocket back to amazing song writing with Global Flatline, an album that featured not only great riffs, screams and drumming but incorporated finely constructed guitar solos on top of the horrific compositions. The Necrotic Manifesto was another great album that featured more structure as well as catchy riffs that had me coming back again and again. This time with Retrogore, we get creativity,…

Review: Vibrion – Bacterya

Review: Vibrion – Bacterya

Old school death metal. Some people love it. Some people hate it. Here at Headbang or GTFO I welcome it with open arms. It’s usually the purest form of death metal ever, with limited production and massive amounts of talent pouring out, I usually hear some of the best musical beat downs when it comes to old school death metal bands. This one is another gem. Vibrion is a death metal band from Argentina and man do they bring the riffs and blast beats. This is just the rawest display…

Review: AHTME – The Demonization

Review: AHTME – The Demonization

Kansas City technical death metal horde formerly known as The Roman Holiday have decided to rename themselves as something even more goofy and re-released their 2013 effort on Unique Leader Records. These guys recently got signed and to be honest I didn’t even know they were still together, I once saw them play (I think at The Beaumont or Riot Room?) a long time ago but I never heard much from the camp. I never even heard of this album when they originally released it independently but luckily for them…
