Review: Human Compost – From The Grave They Crawl

Review: Human Compost – From The Grave They Crawl

Canadian death metal act Human Compost releases their debut album From The Grave They Crawl and this album will be directed to those who like older styled death metal with huge chainsaw groove, blood sprayed vocals and horrific bass presence. Drums that pummel like a semi automatic weapon blasting your skull. This is the soundtrack to my death as I am resurrected in a putrid form of zombified terror and murder, rape and destroy everything in sight. Neat huh? It makes for a fantastic listen honestly.

Review: Cesspool of Corruption – Eradication of the Subservient

Review: Cesspool of Corruption – Eradication of the Subservient

Cesspool of Corruption is a 4 piece death metal unit out of Dallas, Texas. Upon first listen, these cats have some damn good writing skills and their tone and overall execution definitely grabbed onto me very quickly. I just HAD to keep listening to this debut album. Very gripping musicianship across all instruments, good production levels and an overall enjoyment of vocals over the music just makes Eradication of the Subservient a must listen. Sure, there are only 5 songs on this debut release but there is a lot of…

Review: Abominant – Napalm Reign

Review: Abominant – Napalm Reign

Abominant is a death metal act from Kentucky, who offer us multiple styles of death metal and traditional metal in one album. The band has been around since the early 90’s and you can tell just by listening to their style of metal they perform. Moments of traditional metal vocals surface at times and threw me off quite a bit as they seemingly didn’t fit the music or even the vocals that were used in the song just before it. Abominant will then turn their guitars from kill to melodic,…

Review: Blood Incantation – Starspawn

Review: Blood Incantation – Starspawn

I’ve noticed a trend lately. There are a lot of good bands coming out of the Colorado area, especially in Denver. Another thing I’ve noticed is Dark Descent Records is snatching up all of the good bands around the world. Like Blood Incantation’s debut album for instance. Starspawn is everything people have been loving for the past 2 decades within the death metal genre. Starspawn has an old school sound about it but then they sound like modern death acts such as Chthe’ilist and Adversary. A hectic blend of technicality, aggression,…

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…
