Mike O’Hara of Splattered Entrails rips through his song “Tonguing Shears”. After that, watch and listen as Stealing Axion performs a couple of their songs. Two great bands, two different sounds. Plenty of headbanging to be had. Enjoy!
I Declare War’s “I, tormentor” is a crushing deathcore song featuring slower paced picking techniques and rhythm work. Tuning – G# D# G# C# F# A# D#
Enjoy new music from slam/death sensation: Splattered Entrails!
Splattered Entrails have already released an EP earlier this year but get ready to have your skull crushed again this Fall when “Depths of Obscurity” is released. Splattered Entrails is one of the best independent bands out there and I’m fucking going nuts here waiting for new material. They spoil us with these constant releases! Check this shit out!.
Here is a little music update and some music from Splattered Entrails. First up is the Gorguts cover which sounds really good. Check it out.
Next up is a new track I haven’t heard before and it’s slamming as always. The track “Before The Shadows” sounds very crisp and heavy. Production values are at an all time high on these new tracks. I can’t wait to hear the final product of the new album they are releasing by the end of the year. Check out the new track then read up about that album below.
Over the years this New York based gore-slam-guttural-genocidal-homicidal-maniacal band known as Splattered Entrails has ruled over my iPod. I’ve loved everything these guys (Well…the story behind that one is…) have put out. Led by Mike O’Hara and recently joined by Ian Stevenson, they play some of the best death grind slam albums ever. I mean this shit is brutal. This makes you want to drive your car into a school bus and hope for the worst. No but it’s good stuff, your mother will dig it. Play some for her at maximum volume. You’re welcome!
Like I said, this is not an official Splattered Entrails release but this song fucking kicks ass. I really like the leads on this track. Kind of gives the usual death metal/slam of his a bit of technicality. I think it sounds great! What do you think?! Even if it isn’t a Splattered track, Be sure to go check them out if you haven’t already. It’s some of the best slam/death/cyber grind out there!
1. Vanity of Perversion
2. Magnum Rivet
3. Onslaught of Warfare
4. Screams of Distant Terror
6. Incessant Torture
7. Subject Delta
Crushing slam groove starts this album off immediately and it’s back to what Splattered Entrails does best, make you fucking headbang. This 2012 EP is another blast-tastic death metal album that has even catchier riffs than the previous release. The tempo is slowed down a little bit in the guitar riff section, making the riffs that much heavier sounding. I mean that, these riffs sound like they weight 10,000 pounds. Drums sound great again with the exception of a couple of crash parts, it’s just annoying at times but only when I focus on it. Vocals are deep and will drag you down to hell. It seems to be the smaller guys now-a-days are belching out some impressive vocals anymore. You would think a giant was behind that microphone. The opening roar on the track “Screams of Distant Terror” is a prime example of the monstrous screams Mike can produce.
One thing I like is how crisp and clean Mike O’Hara’s picking hand is. The riffs sound really good and are not sloppy at all. Featuring layers, melodies and tapping – the song writing is a little more complex while still very structured and brutal. Some of the riffs are just dreadful and scary at times. There is a nod to Mike’s previous work, nasty guttural slam with some mean double bass behind it on “Incessant Torture”. Ending the album is another track featuring mean riffs and roars that would knock a bears nuts off and send him running. The 2012 EP from Splattered Entrails is a mean one. O’Hara keeps pumping out quality death metal and I think this EP is just the beginning of what to expect for later this year!
Pros: Groove, slam, death, brutality…this album has it all and delivers it with full force.
Cons: Not for the weak.
4.5 out of 5
Out of nowhere, the new EP from Splattered Entrails is upon us! Kicking the shit out of my speakers as I type this out. You can check out their Facebook page and listen to the new EP which is cleverly titled “2012 EP“. Once again, it’s another blast beat and riff fest that’s comparable to sky diving without a parachute. The impact of Splattered Entrails’ music is just soooooooo fuuuuuucking heavy.
I need to kick a wall down, brb…
If you want to hear a new death metal track from Splattered Entrails then click here and enjoy. The drums are dialed in even better and the song is just slammin. Featuring some layered guitar work and an opening/closing riff that will make you stab the shit out of someone.
Here it is….my overall top 10 of the year.
10. Chimaira – The Age of Hell – Songs that will make you drive a little faster…each song is great and you will definitely headbang and sing along. The work done on this is some of their best work since The Impossibility of Reason and it’s the last album that Matt and Rob will be apart of.
8. Splattered Entrails – Nauseate – Death slam grind that does one thing and one thing well, be as brutal as possible. Mike O’Hara makes some of the best slam grind on the internet. Truly speaker destroying and gut wrenching stuff.
6. Suicide Silence – The Black Crown – The most groovin’ album Suicide Silence has ever released! Some great riffs and awesome guest appearances too! The band is tighter than ever and the energy captured by the band is intense.
5. Hate Eternal – Phoenix Amongst The Ashes – True death metal that delivers. Running on all cylinders, the machine that is Hate Eternal punishes those who attempt to consume it whole. This album is dangerously fast and the riffs are fucking intense.
4. Amon Amarth – Surtur Rising – It’s Amon Amarth…of course it’s going to kick ass! Back with more great riffs, solo’s and amazing screams from Johan Hegg! Surtur Rising is just another chapter of the mighty Amon Amarth in their quest to conquer the world! Seeing this entire album performed live also was another highlight of the year. Great on the speakers and just as amazing live.
3. Beyond Creation – The Aura – A surprise tech-death band that I’ve never heard of, The Aura blows me away every single time I listen to it. If you need a band to scratch that Necrophagist itch, Beyond Creation will scratch it and then some. Very satisfying album. Some of the best guitar/bass playing and drumming I’ve heard all year.
2. Woods of Ypres – Woods IV: The Green Album – Blackened Doom that caught me off guard. I listened to this album hundreds of times this past year. It has a lot to offer since it’s a long album and it covers many more genres from an angle. The album is one emotional ride and tells a great story. Woods IV has inspired me to not only implement some of this style in my own guitar playing, but to start this blog and tell people of the lesser known bands that are incredibly good. Excellent writing and I just can’t help but sing along.
1. Last Chance To Reason – Level 2 – “We eat videogames and shit music.” Fuck yes they do. Level 2 is a groovin electric progressive technical metal album with harmonizing vocals, guitars and tons of poly-rhythmic playing all over the place. I love this album. It’s the best of both worlds, amazing metal combined with a layer of video game influence. The song writing is mind blowing and album as a whole is more than satisfying. Level 2 is just simply amazing, it’s definitely the best album I’ve heard this year. What a treat. From beginning to end it’s just a masterpiece.
Well it’s another Wednesday. Another day to kill your ears to some heavy music. Today has been a long day. I’ve been welding my ass off and prepping the shop for the winter. While welding I put on an album that had me working faster and headbanging WHILE WELDING. From the ultra talented young man known as Mike O’Hara, I present Splattered Entrails and the album Nauseate.
Nauseate will push your speakers limits and will deafen your ears. This album is done completely by Mike and it’s amazing how one single person can put together such a brutal album. Nauseate has very little flaws in terms of death metal. Blast beats, fast guitar riffs and amazing vocals…this shit rips. I highly suggest finding this album, listening to it and make everyone in traffic or at your employment terrified.
Also, enjoy some of Mike O’Hara’s other tunes as well. Not included on the album, but still incredibly delicious.
April 18th, 2011 (No name, just the date it was created…one of my personal favorites though)
I know it’s Thursday morning but I was too busy to post this yesterday.
My WRECK-ommendation for this week is Beyond Creation’s The Aura. The album is crushing and fans of technical death metal will fully appreciate this album. I love the presence of the bass guitar on the album as well. Beyond Creation is like Necrophagist after a bowl of Wheaties. Yup. Just listen to it…
Next up is Mike O’Hara from the band Splattered Entrails bringing you his wreck-ommendation for today.
I’ll recommend The Red Shore’s“Unconsecrated”. It’s a real brutal album, simply. Most death metal fans might be quick to judge, but give it a listen. It’s actually really fucking good.
Next up is my wonderful fiance, mother of my child and soul-mate, Jennifer Porter, whom has a wreck-ommedation as well.
Nine Inch Nails Pretty Hate Machine is and forever will remain a classic. Every song has it’s own special meaning to me. I can relate to every song in at least one point or another in my life, I think we all can. There is a power to the music of Nine Inch Nails, which soothes the soul. Whenever I’m going through some shit, NIN has an album for it. This one would be my “depression/heartbroken/rejection” album.
The maniacal one man misanthropic murder machine is back! Splattered Entrails has unleashed the furious and brutal “Nauseate” unto the masses. This album does exactly what it is intended to do, be as heavy as fuck. Mike O’Hara is the mastermind behind the machine and Nauseate does not disappoint by any means. Production, drum machine and over all quality has improved over the years and the vocals are still as demonic as ever. Hope you like low guitars, blast beats and double bass drumming with guttural vocals: because that’s exactly what you’re getting. These tracks are meant to punish you and your speakers. Songs like “Humans: Deprogrammed” and “Parasites” bring forth an unrelentless attack to your body, making those not ready for it nauseated.
Unorthodox guitar riffs bring forth intense speeds to brutal slam chords: Nauseate’s guitar work is fucking heavy. Drumming is mostly blast beats and double bass, with a few exceptions here and there to change it up. The intensity of the drums gives the songs a sense of anxiety and fear. The perfect blend of death metal to get the point across, human beings are scum and deserve to die. The music sets that tone dead on: it’s a horror film for your ears.
Pros: excellent production, guitar/vocals/drums sound great, really good guitar riffs in some areas, instrumental tracks are amazing
Cons: Intense music makes your shitty speakers unable to enjoy it fully, Too much cymbal sometimes (ie Buried in Cement)
