From neck-snapping opener "Castle of Skulls" to the the bludgeoning, nearly ponderous attack of stunning album finale "One Step Closer to the Grave" this is completely uncompromised thrash music "

" Owing a huge debt to Slayer and the "big 3" of German thrash, there's little time for melody...Just riff after riff....Some tracks may seem a bit long winded...In Older Metallica tradition...Even an instrumental that sounds right out of the late 80s...With twin guitars straight out ofthe Maiden camp "

All in All....A good record and one that should be checked out.....If you dont like it ?......Go Kill em all.

10. Mourning Path (Outro)

Origin - Germany
Style - Black/Thrash Metal

" The German cult band Desaster has been around since 1988 and this is their 5th full-length "

" "Angelwhore" is an album in good Desaster tradition - raw, diverse, heavy, ripping black/thrash metal in old school style! Killer riffs, pounding drums, lots of time changes, great production etc etc. Deeply rooted in the 80s with influences from bands like Venom, Kreator, Destruction, Possessed and Hellhammer "

" The vocals....of Sataniac are very raw and convincing and suit the band well.After an atmospheric intro all hell breaks loose - it grabs you by the throat and won't let you go for the rest of the 52 or so minutes! The level is constantly high and there are a lot of great parts and ideas in the songs, but my very favorite part must be that killer intro riff of "Conqueror's Supremacy" - awesome!! Or the dragging parts in "Nihilistic Overture", not bad either! The outro "Mourning Path" is again very epic, extremely well done "

If you like your metal still raw, fresh and aggressive, but with a good sound, then this is a must for you!!

" Ist full-length from Carbonized...featuring members of Therion,Entombed,Excruciate......Awesome Death/Grind here "

" Recorded:January 1991 (in three days)at Sunlight Studio !......Starting deliberately with one of the most basic riffs in the underground, this album struts into existence by blasting out a declaration of simple rigid conflict, then breaks it to divide its more boisterous complementary half into a series of high-speed riffs backed by a simple melody; this archetype repeats through exuberant rhythm riffs like those favored by the more aggressive moments of Discharge or Repulsion contrasted with striking melodies "

" Thick but sharp production more in the style of an American death metal band, or English grind act. People: This band sounded like no other at the time..An amalgam of many different genre's and played in a very original way "

" The follow-up to 2007's "Servants of the Unlight" was recorded at Necromorbus Studios (Watain, Setherial) and was mastered at Black Lounge Studios in late January. What you get here is 35 minutes of death metal attack. If you’re looking for a new sound... This isn’t what you need but if you’re looking for a good Death Metal record to keep you busy for the next week, you’ve come to the right place. Aggressive vocals, powerful drumming and skull crushing riffs have been put together to create a powerful record"

8. Graveyard Of Angels
9. Emit Despale (Remix)

Origin - Italy
Style - Death Metal

" This new record is the natural prosecution of Gory Blister project mixing old school aggression with the technical and progressive music into classic death metal. Moreover, from the initial comparison with masters Death, the band has acquired more and more personality, so that you will always experience originality both in riffs and lyrics....So says the record company "

" I think this 3rd record is solid...not groundbreaking death metal.....Technical?....Not that much. Some old-school leanings..That I wish they would have done more. Low-pitched and high screechy black metal vocals. A very good production coupled with some damn catchy riffs make this a good pick-up "

10. Looking to Nothing
11. Wholly Night

Origin - USA

Style - Technical Melodic Death Metal

" The minute this album kicks in gear with "The Face Of My Innocence" it’s just a whirlwind of sheer melodic chaos. The guitar playing is tight, the solos are good, and the vocals have this high pitch shrill that sound like what would happen if you genetically spliced together a Norwegian black metal lunatic and Jeff Walker "

" There are no filler songs. Every song here is jammed and crammed with so many changes and intricasies. However the music is also different than most out there so it is hard to provide comparisons. Caustic, abrasive and vitriolic yet still capturing a melancholy level of melody in their music Arsis has obviously spent a large amount of their time polishing, sharpening and perfecting every composition and it shows "

One of the best releases of 2004 period !

Go Ahead !........G.E.T. It !

4. Night Realm Apocalypse
5. Black Witching Millennium
6. One With Satan
7. DemonHellStorm
8. Kingdom Of The Damned
9. Prophecies Of Evils To Come
10. Revel In Death

Origin - USA

Style - Blackened Death Metal

" Sathanas emerges from the filthy vaults of Pennsylvania and offers 10 tracks of blackened satanic Black/Death Metal. Founded back in 1988 the band released numerous demos, EP's and full length albums "

" "Nightrealm Apocalypse" has a constant slower tempo with dirty old school riffs as well as this unique raw vocal style. But don't reduce Sathanas to just another retro-sounding act, because this band has simply more to offer than just stolen riffs or a wannabe dark image. Seems like these 3 guys have sold their soul to the devil and totally worship the horned dude with every single tune. The lyrics deal with blasphemic stuff and the general impression is rather dark and evil. The production is good for the genre..nothing too clean or bright...Just evil sounding atmosphere "

Fans of black, death and thrash must definitely give this album a listen !

Dawn - Slaughtersun (Crown of the Triarchy) (1998)

2. Falcula
3. To Achieve the Ancestral Powers
4. Ride the Wings of Pestilence
5. The Aphelion Deserts
6. Stalker's Blessing
7. Malediction Murder

Origin - Sweden
Style - Black/Death Metal

" 2nd and last full length from Dawn...(They have reformed... supposedly)"

" Sweden’s Dawn were formed Autumn/Winter Anno 1991. They recorded their first demo, Demo 1, in the Winter of 1992. That cold December spawned the first official Dawn demo entitled Apparition. At this point, Dawn had more of a straightforward Death Metal approach to their music, which is reflected in this first release. The Apparition Demo went on to sell over 200 copies and was re-released as a 7" EP, The Eternal Forest by the small label, Bellphegot Records. During the summer of 1993, Dawn entered Unisound Studios (Dan Swano) to record a promotional tape. The result, Promo ‘93, found its way to the Necropolis Records Hordes where the label signed Dawn immediately "

" Blastbeats, tremolo riffs, requisite apocalyptic lyrical themes. All of these elements drive the black/death genre, and in the right hands yield good results. Dawn is a first tier band in the genre, marrying blasting tempos with positively sinister tremolo melodies with the intention of pulverizing the listener and drawing them into a world of misanthropy and depression "

" The production is a wall of ambience and white noise, remarkable for its mixture of clarity and power. Unlike many other bands in the death/black genre (e.g. Dissection and Necrophobic) Dawn thrives on repetition. Each riff is repeated over and over, creating a trance-like listening experience. Songs are fairly long and usually built around three or four riffs. Surprisingly...This works and makes the tracks quite hypnotic in nature "

Simply Put....A Tremendous Effort !......A must for fans of the Black/Death Genre...

10. Condemned Truth
11. Whispers And Cries

Origin - Germany
Style - Death Metal

" This is Germany's Anasarca with their debut album "

" Describing Anasarca as a mixture of the grinding US and "melodical" European style" of death metal is pretty accurate, and over 'Godmachine's 40 odd minute expanse.... one is treated to doses of each. Low-powerchord, bass-heavy chuggings and their double bass backing in the Cannibal Corpse-style is melded with, for example, Centinex-esque melodic manipulations "

" Anasarca play highly disciplined death metal incorporating all the elements that make it so technically satisfying: melody, plenty of blast beats and triggered drumming, a versatile approach to rhythm and of course vocals straight from the school of the great growlers "

A solid Death Metal record here !

" One of the new crop of Death Metal bands from Finland playing in the style of old. This little Ep is crushing stuff indeed....Evil...Downtuned Death Metal with gruff vocals. Shitloads of time changes and a burly production "

04. Poison Fog
05. Drowning in Mud
06. Passiondale
07. No Survivors
08. Behind Enemy Lines
09. Fallen Empires
10. Artifacts of the Great War

Origin - Netherlands
Style - Blackened Death Metal

" 8th full length from these dutch warriors of Metal "

" 'Passiondale' sees God Dethroned delve into the historical battle of Passchendaele...A Epic battle that saw both sides lose nearly a million men in total "

" This band has endured some line-up changes for this record but has pulled through with flying colors ! Musically, Passiondale is heavy as all hell with a lot of melody, a touch of clean singing (very well done I might add) every once in awhile and though the growls are brutally heavy they are also very audible. There is also a lot of tremolo picking, which really gives it that whole Blackened feel to it. "

" People ....This is not your ordinary black/Death metal record all about anti-Religious beliefs.....This is a true historical account of a bloody battle......And the record is the same....Bloody....Fucking.....Great !

A catchy, brutal, interesting and well put together concept album with the savage intensity to match.....

7. Psychoplasm
8. Splatterthrash
9. Gutbucket Blues
10. Rise, Killbot, Rise!
11. Life of the Living Dead
12. Baron Samedi

Origin - USA

Style - Death/Thrash/Grind Metal

" What should one expect from SPLATTERTHRASH? Well, actually, the title defines it perfectly. It's a combination of blood splattering, gut stomping atmospheres intertwined with saw to the bone thrash. Don't let that fool you though, as Ghoul can change it up as quickly as blood spilling out of a gutted pig. While songs like "As Your Casket Closes" and "Gutbucket Blues" have more of a traditional thrash sound, songs like "Bury the Hatchet" and "Cult of the Hunter" often cross into death metal territory and while there is a good deal of treading the thrash and death metal line on this album, the band trade off between the two flawlessly. If you dig on thrash and death metal but want something a little extra, Ghoul provide it courtesy of the ghastly surfabilly/rockabilly instrumental "Psychoplasm".

" Ghoul will appeal to not only the fans of horror themed music (horror punk, horror rock, horror THRASH!) but to fans of straightforward thrash and death metal as well. The band is a great combination of imagery (check out some videos of these guys) and top-notch musicianship.

I highly suggest checking these guys out if you haven't already.

" Purtenance released one EP and then one full length before splitting up in 1992 "

" This release shows a lot of musical maturation form the Purtenance Avulsion (Earlier) days, but it still shows a lot of energy. They developed a style of mixing heavy sludgy doom sections with faster death thrash sections. Purtenance also managed to incorporate some melodic elements lacking from their early days. This release rips just as much as the Purtenance Avulsion demo and the mix of Doom/Thrash/Death gives it a unique character "

" The slow murky parts of this album are everything that I look for in death metal, dark brooding, and filthy....Almost bordering on doom metal "

" This shit is not for pussy's here.....One would call this a proper blastfest..The drums are all over the place, doing their best to pummel you into submission, but are at all times backed up by a vigorous and creative guitarist throwing riffs, harmonies and solos around as if his life depends on it..And dont forget the vocals spewing forth at high speed and low pitch "

" When listening to Brootal stuff like this...It reminds me how boring such bands as Hate Eternal are...Just a bunch of technical stuff..No cohesion....H.O.P. brings it in spades and writes good songs also...Not for everyone...But if you need fast,faster,super fucking fast music about 36 min or so...Look no further !

9. Retrieving My Carcass
10. Oracles

Origin - Italy
Style - Brutal Death Metal

" Fleshgod Apocalypse features members from bands like Hour Of Penance and Promaetheus Unbound. "Oracles", which is the band’s first full-length album is a high class technical album brimming with savage riffing and classical overtones"

" Amongst the furious neo-classical guitar work on par with bands such as Necrophagist are small interludes. These classical breaks in the album create a strange sense of anticipation for certain songs to kick in and start the brutal stuff all over again. Truly an inventive record in my opinion and one every Death Metal fan should at least check out...."

A Massacre !.......get It!

Origin - Sweden
Style - Death Metal

" In the world of music...Some bands take 5 years in between records...Rogga Johansson takes 3 months ! Here the 7Th full length already "

" Now anyone that knows Rogga's music...Knows what to expect..Crushing ..Simple old-school sounding Metal Of Death...Whether or not 55 minutes exceeds one's limits ?..Well..I still say I would rather hear 55 min of this record than 95% of all the other releases nowadays "

" Besides there are enough killer riffs contained here to bother the fucking neighbors !...That's for sure. I think I would condense some tracks together and make a more compressed outing next time around....But none the less..Another hammer of Death From Paganizer "

And any record with a song called "Bonesaw Bonanza" is a plus in my book !

Death Till The End !..........Get It!

Unanimated - In The Light Of Darkness (2009)

1. Ascend With The Stench Of Death
2. Retribution In Blood
3. The Endless Beyond
4. Diabolic Voices
5. In The Light Of Darkness
6. The Unconquered One
7. Enemy Of The Sun
8. Serpent's Curse
9. Death To Life
10. Strategia Luciferi

Origin - Sweden
Style - Melodic Black/Death Metal

" 2009 finally see's the return of the under appreciated Unanimated !........"

" 14 years ago came the release ' Ancient God Of Evil ' one of the best releases of its kind..In my opinion...And never recieved the notice it deserved. Here we are in 2009 and the gods make a return...And what a return it is ! "

" Spectacular Blackened Death metal in the Dissection vein...'In the Light of Darkness' sounds devastating, a crushing effort which offers both melodies and pure Swedish death metal...wrapped in a more modern production "

" I could write about every track...But I will tell you this "Death To Life" is one of the best Black/Death tracks I have heard in a while...A mid-paced effort that just reeks of evilness and a Necrophobic atmosphere to it. The vocals of Micke Jansson are properly scathing and fit well and the songs are well written...Very Impressive stuff indeed ! "

Unanimated prove once more that they're worth your time, and this album is a no-brainer for fans of Swedish black/death metal ala Dissection, Sacramentum, etc.

Through the Gates !........Get It!
Down Here........

" From the rotten early works of acts like Nihilist, Nivana 2000, Grave, to the "Classic" sounds of Sunlight studios bands like Entombed,Dismember to the modern return bands such as Repugnant,Katalysator....Their is something for every fan of the death metal scene....And if you are new to this stuff...You could do no worse than to get this to hear the ancient history of the art "

Fans: Their are a ton of rarities on these CDs.....7" vinyl,12" vinyl...And of course all of the demo's !......On one set of Cds....!......I am just a little pissed off tho......

Because I didnt do this years ago...But seriously this is “A killer compilation which you dont wanna live without, it may take some time before you see something as awesome as this!”

Or at least till I make the next one.......Someday.....

Sorry I had to split this into 3 links....But the Cds are quite long and this way someone can get one at a time if they choose....Trust Me...Get All three !

Alright Fuckers !..........Get This !
