This morning I just felt compelled to listen to nothing but the sickest slam I could find. My home PC is fixed and for whatever reason, slam gets me in the mood to record and motivates me more than any other genre of music. The gutturals, the riffs and the sheer brutality of the lyrics just get me so pumped up. Here are some of the greats I’ve listened to today and I must share with you.
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

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.
