Acrania hails all of the way from London, England and these guys conjure up as much brutality as they can for their new album ‘Totalitarian Dystopia’. A disgust blend of death metal, slam, guttural death and brutal death with some deathcore sprinkled on top. The result? A hectic style of music that is rather difficult to follow.
When you think of the UK, you probably get the stereotypical gentlemen who play terrible sports and dress to impress while eating crap no one here in America would like right? Well shove that image aside and think of acid spewing, gravity blasting, slam riffing neaderthal’s instead. Twitch of the Death Nerve (One hell of a band name) come at you with gruesome songs that will get your throat sore, your neck broken and you mind blown.
Arceye, death/thrash metal hailing from the UK (Not one single US band reviewed today!) and this one is a keeper of an album. “At First Light” is a whirlwind of guitar playing, aggressive vocals and damn fine drumming. This WILL appeal to most if not all metal heads. Mainly on the thrash side of things, this band pulls off amazingly fast drumming and guitar playing speeds as well as catchy and quality song writing. The composition of this album as a whole is genuinely magnificent.
Evile will be releasing this new epic Thrash album simply called “Skull” on May 27th!!!! Earache Records are advertising new merch and pre-order bundles on their website now and together they have released a trailer showcasing how the new album will sound. I enjoyed the hell out of “Five Serpent’s Teeth” and I have a feeling this will be contender for my end of the year “Best of” list. I mean just listen to this! This is heavy and fast!!!!!
Ah! The sweet refreshing sounds of doom! If I would have heard this 4 years ago, I probably would have fallen asleep 5 minutes into the first song. The more I grew up and the higher I got, I slowly got into doom and stoner metal without really realizing it. Moss is a band from the UK that packs a powerful punch. Time to light up some of the devils lettuce and trance out to ”Horrible Nights”
Road To Horizon released this little piece to show off that they are coming back in 2013. New tunes, new riffs and some pretty aggressive moments for this type of music. Clean singing that will swoon any pre-teen girl and screams that will call to boys of the same age. This EP just plays out to the younger generation and I know the next time I walk into a Hot Topic I’ll be hearing this over the PA.
With a name like Infant Annihilator, you’d think instantly of horrid gore filled brutal death metal. Well, that’s what this is you dip shit. However, what I like about these guys, a side of the awesome music, is the fact that they have fun and don’t take this shit too seriously. Their debut will be out in December. So check them out on Facebook and hit them up on Youtube. Tell em I sent you. Enjoy, Infant Annihilator.
