Origin - Netherlands
Style - Technical Death Metal

" This is P.I.s Debut album on the little known West Virginia Records "

" The best description for this album would be: Death metal in a hybrid style that includes crazy rhythms, such that incomplete rhythmic patterns provide a continuity through our anticipation of the final beat established through contrast of offbeats as necessary, and sounds as a result somewhere between Exhorder and Malevolent creation, with verse riffs that resemble later work from Death.....Did ya get all that? "

" This was the bands most straight forward album..Probably leaning in the Death camp the most. Fairly sterile sounding...Technical...Low emotion Death Metal played with style "

Fans of Death,Pestilence etc...Check it out......

Seal Your Fate!..........Get It!

" Sombre Gates is the second release from this Swedish outfit "

" Picture Dissection crossed with At The Gates with some Hypocrisy and a bit of The Crown thrown in for good measure (huh?...all that?). But that's what I got when I heard this record. Their debut was pure At The Gates worship...But on Sombre Gates..The band has delved into their own style and has brought out a mixture that serves the band well "

" Lord Belial-guitarist Thomas Backelin has even joined now..making this unit even stronger...While clocking in at almost an hour long..Might be a bit much...
The Cold Existence should be proud of this new album....For it is very good and quite promising for their future "

Fans of all the bands above should give this a try.........

Origin - Netherlands
Style - Thrash Metal

" Depression Tank marks the 20 year anniversary of Dead Head, a thrash band from Zwolle, The Netherlands that has been making thrash metal since its formation in 1989 "

" This fifth album does not suddenly introduce female vocals, keyboards, forced melodic downfalls or other misplaced ingredients into the sound of the band. Instead, it’s another raw, pure and energetic work of thrash. Dead Head plays good old thrash metal in the best Kreator, old Sadus and Slayer style, but have created from the beginning their own typical trademarks in their music. Very aggressive vocals, lots of melody and solo’s in their songs and also brilliant slower technical parts to give this kind of thrash the dynamic and power it needs to have"

Depressive Tank is no less than a murderous package of truly aggressive, adrenaline-pumped up and intense thrash metal !

For fans of Dew Scented, Kreator etc......Killer !

Origin - Sweden
Style - Death Metal

" Chronic Torment deliver their third album with brutal efficiency. Employing a crushing sound that walks the line between early Vader, early Pestilence and a dash of Morbid Angel, they stick out from their peers in that they don't produce the typical Dismember/Entombed worship "

" Killer old school riffs, grinding chords,creepy atmosphere (via subtle keys)...Classic Van Drunen sounding vokills..and a earthy..not over done production. These guys put out a crushing demo as Sacretomia back in 1992..now changed name..But still great death metal done the old way "

Hardworking bands putting out independent records themselves....deserve your attention...Go and buy a tee or CD from these guys !

" This quartet of bloodthirsty gremlins play a sort of bastardized thrash-death hybrid...But the old-school influence is overwhelming..And b- schlock horror movies is where its at lyrically. The vocals are monstrous and inteligible at the same time.
Guitar wise..the tracks are catchy and heavy as fuck "

This bastard of a record has been in the making for 10 some years..So its about time to unleash this gore-soaked beast on the world !......

12. Meus Altius Pater Noster

Origin - Russia
Style - Melodic Death / Doom Metal

" Here we have the debut album from Wine From Tears...."

" Melancholic Doomy Death metal is what this record is all about.....And superb it is !...Airy and dark with stellar guitars along with superb melodic harmonies and subtle keys...A terrific Low growl and top notch production "

" This album brings to mind 'Brave Murder Day' Katatonia along with Saturnus and a pinch of My Dying Bride. There are some Gothic elements..Such as the female voice (which is actually decent) and the spoken word parts (very Saturnus like) But not bad at all. "

" But if you long for the weeping melodies of Swallow The Sun or Slumber and the minimalism of Early Katatonia....Then this is the Lp for you !

Absolutely Recommended for fans of this style !

" Compilation of All of Obscurity's demo and unreleased material on one cd"

" Obscurity come from Sweden and had been founded back in 1985, inspired by bands like Venom, Slayer, Bathory and Possessed. Primal and almost punkish thrash riffs , obscure and angry, the music is fast as fuck but under produced "

Strictly cult stuff here........Fans of the bands listed above should check it out...But dont expect a mind blowing experience...

Origin - Germany
Style - Technical Death Metal

" Formed in 2000, Centaurus-A recorded a few demos before beginning the work on their debut in 2007, and though it took nearly two years to finalize'Side Effects Expected'.... the results were worth the wait "

" Side Effects Expected offers the listener ten tracks of technical death metal that at times reminds of Necrophagist and other high class technical acts like that. Yet these Germans know when to tone down a bit and let a groove take over all the display of high speed virtuoso guitar trickery.“The Praying Mantis” bursts into life with all out brutality. Extremely competent musicianship and fierce vocals are the order of the day...Catchy grooves underlay the violent aggression and soaring solos really break things up. Most of the tracks that follow do use the same formula...But you will hear several genre's across the board "

This is a monstrous debut and a band that cant be taken lightly in the future !

Fans of Necrophagist, Obscura, Etc.....Get On Board !

Intelligence Inverted !...........Huh?

10. When Life Surrenders

Origin - Germany
Style - Death Metal

" ‘Made Of Flesh’ is Fleshcrawl's seventh album, a very nice piece of European death metal that combines the early days of the genre with the highest production standards of the new millennium "

" You can definetly draw comparisons to Dismember, Grave, and maybe even a little Bolt Thrower. The music is mostly mid-paced, groove laden old-school death metal in the same vein as these bands. The vocals remind me of kind of a cross between Corpsegrinder and Glen Benton. Mostly low growls with a few occasional high screams here and there. The guitarists perform very solidly on the record, and have a good selection of riffs on each song. They even incorporate a hint of melody here and there. The drumming is tight, with the drummer offering a good variety of drumbeats across the album "

A good solid Death Metal record is what you get here.......

Why Not?.......Get It!

" Holy Cripes !.....I put this on and ....No campy intro....No keys or classical guitars....Just Walloping sounds of 'Altar Of Corruption'....Scathing,Tearing,Thrash riffs and black metal style raspy vokills wrapped in a crisp..Big Sounding production !.....33 minutes later and I am still looking for a break in this album...But There are none.."

" What you get to hear on ‘Homage To Martyrs’ is the perfect amalgamation of raw Black Metal and the thrashing mania of early Slayer. As raw, relentless and intense as it can get! Merciless sharp riffing and pure brutality from the darkest vaults of down under "

Beware of this record !......I shit you not.....It makes you want to break something..

Origin - USA
Style - Progressive Thrash/Death Metal

" Believer returns with their first full length in 16 years ! "

" With the opening track “Medwton” one huge seething mass of crushing jagged thrash riffs, scathing vocals and an injection of melodic solo work from guest guitarist Deron Miller (CKY/World Under Blood). This is only the beginning...."

" There are keyboards sprinkled through out..but very subtle...There are loads of catchy riffs in here and blistering solo's...And of course the progressive passages in every track "

This is quite the comeback in my opinion....Much more straight forward than I expected !...Thankfully gone are the female operatic vocals and such... Instead with Gabriel the band has managed to bring back that old-school thrash sound, but also mix in a large dose of technicality and originality while still sounding very current.....

Damn Straight !.......Get It!
They have it.......

" Hailing from Texas, Decrepitaph have released a mix of old school death and stomping old school grindcore...."

" Condemned Cathedral is a heavy and dirty slab of filthy death metal. The guitars grind and buzz away any polish that might even attempt to sneak their way into this recording. A muffled Sunlight Studios sound would be a fair comparison. Crushing and thick like molasses "

" There’s no “ingenuity” here, but who needs something fast and new when you’ve got the old formula down perfectly? Pick this up and crank it up ! You’ve now got a weapon of death metal in your hands that may lead to aching neck muscles "

Origin - United Kingdom
Style - Death Metal

" Cancer started out in Telford, Shropshire (Uk) way back in 1987...Released a great debut 'To the Gory End' and followed with 'Death Shall Rise' their second release "

" This album is particularly immense as it features a certain James Murphy on lead guitars (James re-located to the U.K for a short period after he left Death), so it features a fair bit of Spiritual Healing styled melodic technical guitar solos which fits right in over the Bolt Thrower-esque thrashy death riffage this album is so ridden with "

" If you're a huge fan of the earlier death metal bands, especially those that started out on the Roadrunner roster, you'll love this. It's an essential album to plug a gaping gap in the collection of those that proclaim a love of rhythmic, thrashy death metal...."

Tracks 1-4 here have live drumming and are much better than the rest of the tracks, However the ones with the drum machine are still very well done and great as well "

Style - Thrash Metal

" Formed in 2005, Pittsburgh quartet Mantic Ritual are the latest in a long line of fresh-faced, 20-something Thrash acts currently making the rounds "

" Their music?.........Kill em all !......Seriously...these guys sound like Metallica's greatest record....Right down to the vokills,solo's....Four Horsemen time changes...This has all of it..And a nice stout production to go along with 55 min of retro-Thrash worship "

" Originallity?......Nah.....Tight Playing...Yeah....Tight jeans and hightops...Yeah....Catchy Thrash anthems...Yeah......Fun to listen to...Yeah ! "

You can put this one down next to your Evile,Gama Bomb,Bonded By Blood records just fine...

Look..Its damn hard to make an original Thrash record in 2009...Its all been done before....At least Mantic Ritual is having fun playing the music they obviously worship.....Which is OK by me !

I would have liked to see a more retro looking artwork...But whatever.....

Riff-O-Rama !.........Go Ahead !

" This was their second album...And a strange concoction is was...Heavy Downtuned guitars and Harmonica?....Oboe?...Anyway...Their employment of strange styled instruments made for an interesting listen. This Lp is actually got some cool ideas and good playing...Just the production makes the whole entity suffer a bit..And could have been so much better with the proper Studio "

A bizarre record at the least....and a rare piece of Floridian Death Metal for sure.....

Big Bong Hits!........Get Em !

Autumnia - O´Funeralia (2009)

1. In Heavens... Among the Tombs
2. Blessing Your Illness
3. Falling Asleep With Entreaty
4. Breathe Your Mourning Into Me
5. By The Candles Obsequial

Origin - Ukraine
Style - Doom/Death Metal

" The Ukraine's Autumnia again delivers an impressive album for fans of melodic doom metal. The music is quite slow-paced, utterly melancholic and sorrowfilled "

" What you can expect is pure doom that is quite fresh and original. The riffs are heavy, but at times quite melodic with the occasional clean guitar picking often reminding me of Draconian. Vocally: Deep deep Growls and the occasional clean chorus..but not much "

I highly recommend this album to anyone who’s into melodic doom/death metal, filled with sorrowful and dark passion !
For fans of: Swallow The Sun,Draconian, etc...

Sorrow & Solitude !.......Get It!

Tracks 5 & 6 from 'Immolation' Demo (1988)
Tracks 7, 8 & 9 from 'Immolation' Demo (1989)
Track 10 'Infectious Blood' (later renamed 'Fall In Disease') was also recordedfrom the same '89 session but the band would just make it a three song tape.
Track 11 'Despondent Souls' recorded in January 1990 for the first "At Death'sDoor" compilation but never ended up on the compilation album due to the timingof that record's release.
88-89 Live ( Tracks 12-15)"Burial Ground", "Infectious Blood", & "Immolation"Recorded at "Streets", New Rochelle, NY Dec 3, 1988"Despondent Souls" & "Dawn of Possession"Recorded in Belle Vernon, PA June 17, 1989
Track 16 is extra long because it's actually 3 tracks in one. After "Dawn ofPossession" finishes, another track starts around 3:40 which is actually a livecover of Autopsy - Charred Remains from their 1988 demo "Critical Madness",followed by a live cover of Sepultura - Morbid Visions (starts at about 7:45).

" This collection of early works and pre-release versions of classics from the first album shows Immolation developing from old school death metal to a proto-technical level while simultaneously differentiating the band in concept and image. A glimpse into the mind of this developing musical force is like a cross-section of metal history as concepts develop from variants on known quantities to an evocative voice of will isolated in these individuals "

" Known in their early days as Rigor Mortis (no relation to the Texas band), the band moved from punkish songs with pop construction in verse and chorus directness, sounding in many ways similar to Slaughter (Canada) or Master, toward a nihilistic and raw death metal sound applied with a level of destructivity blanketing the listener in crushing riffs "

This compilation is a look into what would become one of the most well known bands in Death Metal History !

" Decameron, formerly known as Nekrofobic, clearly take influences from Swedish bands like Eucharist, At the Gates and Necrophobic.....This is their debut full length "

" Mixing Swedish melodic death metal with black metal overtones ala Dissection...Makes 'My Shadow' a very entertaining record. Plenty of time changes,changing vocal styles and blackened melodies with a streamlined production "

BenB was looking for this one.......
