Origin - United Kingdom (Scotland)
Style - Technical Death Metal

" 3rd full length from these Scottish Bruisers "

" If you like your Death metal fast and furious — and oh-so-precise — then Man Must Die is the band for you. And on their 2009 release... No Tolerance for Imperfection..You will get tons of blastbeats, Low (decipherable) growling, galloping rhythms, and rapid riffing are all on display. The songs may blur into each other...And this kind of Brutal Death Metal is not for everyone..."

" The 11-track assault of punishing, modern death metal is strikingly fast and sick, and drives home the point that Man Must Die clearly wields their instruments as weapons of destruction. Tracks like "Gainsayer", "Kill It. Skin It. Wear It."(Dig that title), and "It Comes In Threes" prove that Man Must Die live up to the albums title and have delivered one of the year's best Tech,Brutal Death Metal records.....Now Tread carefully !

Megaslaughter - Calls from the Beyond (1991)

1. Blood Runs Free
2. Raise The Dead
3. False Paradise
4. Shreds Left Behind
5. Death Remains
6. Into The Decay
7. Calls From The Beyond
8. Bloodshed

Origin - Sweden
Style - Death/Thrash Metal

" Megaslaughter formed in 1987, was initially known as Dinloyd. Their first demo as Megaslaughter, 'Death Remains' surfaced in 1989 and garnered the band a deal with French label Thrash Records. After one album Megaslaughter split in 1992, with vocalist Emil Lilic resurfacing in 1997 fronting Murder Corporation, a project band assembled by members of Deranged that released the 'Blood Revolution 2050' album. In 1998 both Emil Ilic and Kenneth Arnestedh were to be found in Concrete Mass. Former Megaslaughter bass player Alex Räfling and guitarist Emil Ilic would both be found with the high profile 2003 Metal venture Jaggernaut "

" The music found on this album is dark, mostly mid-paced death metal with the occasional thrash influences. However these guys were not in the typical Dismember,Entombed vein. I would say a more Americanized influence from Death and other bands of that time "

" This was released on vinyl by the obscure Thrash Records...And is a tough one to come up with....

Those who worship the early stuff from Sweden....This is a must !

I have a couple of copys !......Want one?

9. Servants
10. Axegressor

Origin - Finland
Style - Thrash Metal

" Debut from the (Turku) Finland crew "

" Already with a cool Ep in 2007...Axegressor let loose their first full-length..Fans of Testament,Kreator,Stone..(remember them?) will have no problem getting into this...This probably leans more towards the bay area sound than anything "

" Riff oriented tracks that have changes and tempo changes to keep it from sounding sterile. Vocally...A sorts shout..yell at the same time...It works ok. The production is strong and the drumming solid..Not flashy "

" Overall, this is a solid little album that would be recommended for anyone who enjoys old thrash metal. It is nothing new, but is a solid release....

Thrash All Night!.......Yes !

10. Awoken At Gunpoint

Origin - Denmark
Style - Death Metal

" Formed from the ashes of Usipian...And also featuring members of Panzerchrist and Corpus Mortale (notably Martin Rosendahl also of Iniquity and Exmortem fame), the bloodlines and experience of The Cleansing are unquestionable, and it shows on their volatile debut album - a perfect mix of typically chunky Danish brutality and modern polished, death metal savagery "

" Brutal, aggressive and catchy are keywords when it comes to this record..The Copenhagen based quintet combine intense and unique melodies with both old school and modern death metal elements. Inspired by bands such as Morbid Angel, Hate Eternal and Immolation along with their Danish heritage to create one hell of an debut album "

" The Cleansing refuse to follow in the blastfest of so much modern Death Meal...Instead laying down slow-to mid-paced riffing and cool solo's...All the while the deep bellow of Martin (who did all the vocals for the LP) deliver an beastly sort of undertone "

The Danes are good at making the songs interesting by including many different facets in the music....And with a heavy production from Jacob Hansen makes for a fine album to rumble your walls !

A Slow Death Factory !..........Get It!

" This band boasts some fine seasoned veterans from the Swedish scene....Members were or are in Verminous,Immersed In Blood,Evildoer to name a few. These guys play a hybrid style...Modern Swedish Death meets Bay area Thrash w/Growled vocals. Nothing too amazing here..Just a solid outing and some cool riffs in here "

" The guys are working on new material..And hope to get back in the studio some time this year...Lets hope so...We can all use a little more carnage..!

Their Swedish !......What do you expect?

" Sacrifice is back to show the world how its done...Reportedly recorded with no studio trickery,triggers.....Just honest and true organic Thrash Metal "

" This shit is serious...Aint no party rock album...Fast and Heavy riffing with the vocals that tear your head off and and a killing attitude to boot. There are some awesome riff fests in here such as 'Give Me Justice' or the tight title track or the epic 'Desolation Alive' that has some really tasteful lead playing, great riffs and drumming "

All in all...A great comeback album !.....Its like they never left...

Forever Enslaved!..........Go Ahead !

2. Down With The Sun
3. Where The Last Wave Broke
4. The Harrowing Years
5. Against The Stream
6. Lay Of The Autumn
7. Into The Woods
8. Weighed Down With Sorrow

Origin - Finland
Style - Melodic Death Metal

" Fourth studio album from Finnish melodic death metallers.. a pinch of Melancholic/Doom, some thrashing, a whole lot of timeless melodies and progressive twists and there you have it: ingredients of a perfect marriage of Scandinavian death metal with traditional Finnish tunes "

" No doubt this album is catchy...Alot of clean vocals in the choruses...Backed by the terrific growling of Niilo Sevänen. There is definitely a more progressive feeling to this record...with subtle use of keys to set the mood...Then the melodies take over..And I mean Folk sounding,Darkness, Mourning, Loss, Pain...You know all of that melancholic shit "

I haven't had alot of Melodic stuff on here in some time....There just isn't alot of quality sounding music out there...most is outdated and cheesy.

Rest assured all you M.D.M. fans out there...This is what you are looking for...
Classy music from a great band and really good Live too !
Fans of Dan Swano's solo record 'Moontower' will dig this...

10. Carnal Revelations
11. Incineration

Origin - Sweden
Style - Death Metal

" Three years after the debut full-length and a mini-album in between, Sweden's My Own Grave comes back strong with a darker, denser and merciless form of Death Metal with their second effort "Necrology"

" This is a nasty slab of supreme machine-gun riffs, intensely paced songwriting and with a sound so sinister, "Necrology" will arguably be one of the elite releases in 2009; chained with the abhorrent sound of old Swedish Death Metal and merging with the face-melting brutality of US Death Metal! "

" Featuring a crushing production by master Dan Swano at his unisound studios...This album shreds on every track and does not let up...No fucking ballads here !.....Just ball crushing Death Metal played the Swedish Way...Up-Tempo and catchy with plenty of heavy riffing "

Highly Recommended !

" The two new tracks are classic...Already....And Ive only had this for a couple of days, The cover is another original in my book, and the live tracks are quality recorded material "

This shit KILLS !

1. Alive and Rotting
2. Souls of Possession

4. Ultimately Beheaded

Origin - Finland
Style - Death Metal

" CD-R limited to 100 hand numbered copies.....Good Luck finding this one...But if you do...Get It!

3. The Malicious Paradise
4. Necrophagious Shadows
5. Apothesis of Morbidity
6. Nocturnal Funeral
7. Altar Flame
8. Evilized
9. Where the Serpents Ever Dwell / Outro - Sumerian Cry (Part II)
10. The Sign of the Pentagram

Origin - Sweden
Style - Black/Death Metal

" One of the original Swedish Death metal bands, The first version of Tiamat was formed in 1988 by mastermind Johan Edlund. Initially called Treblinka, the teen aged Edlund soon realized the commercial limitations of that name and re-christened the band Tiamat "

" Tiamat's first album, Sumerian Cry, features raw Black/Death metal...Now some say Black?...Listen carefully and you hear plenty of nuances of the early Black scene..Bathory,Samael,Mayhem. However it was recorded at Sunlight and has that buzzsaw guitar sound we all came to love "

" The cryptic synthesizer of the instrumental title track soon gives way to the band's brutal buzzsaw guitars and vocalist Hellslaughter's (Johan Edlund's) gruff screaming and growls. Still, Tiamat focuses on solid riffs and varying tempos instead of all-out speed (except on "Evilized" and "The Malicious Paradise" -- these are pretty much all speed), obtaining especially interesting results on "Apothesis of Morbidity" and "Sumerian Cry (Part 2)."

This is an early form of Death Metal..That's for sure..And after what Tiamat morphed into later..I personally will take this any day of the week !

This is Cult !

Aldragon gets it....

4. Absolute Power
5. Revolution
6. Rebirth
7. Lust
8. Forged In Blood
9. Every Word Unheard
10. Who I Really Am

Origin - USA
Style - Thrash Metal

" The resurgence of Bay Area Thrash-influenced metal continues with the debut release, ‘The Onslaught’, by Wisconsin-based Lazarus A.D..Which was originally put out independently by the band...Then re-issued and remastered by James Murphy and put out by Metal Blade records "

" Taking their influence from early thrash metal pioneers the guys in Lazarus A.D. have re-invigorated the genre by breathing fresh air into a scene. This CD contains every thing one would expect from a solid thrash metal record; each song is built around a solid core of riffs and includes tons of speed and breakneck solos. Throw in some abrasive vocals and rapid fire drumming and 'Onslaught' is on the mark "

" Even though Lazarus A.D. have not come up with anything original, they were able to revive a style that everybody thought was long gone and make it work in the most efficient manner. Lazarus A.D. have a lot of potential...And I think in the near future can grow into a style of their own...."

2. Wolf Brigade
3. Upon Us All
4. Traitors
5. Northern Savage
6. Extinction
7. Infected
8. Convicted
9. Aye! Liberty!

Origin - Finland
Style - Death Metal

" Here's an interesting band from Savonlinna,Finland...Who have taken their time and put out 4 demos,a Debut full length in 2007(A fine record I might add)..in the first decade of existence "

" Here in 2009 they unleash 'Traitors' an amalgam of many styles an yet sounding very original. A.U. have incorporated almost all styles of extreme music in one melting pot of a unique record. 'Traitors' is a very busy album, with drums, vocals and guitars firing in from all angles..Sounding at times like early Extol then blasting into the intelligently injected melody of Anata. "

" This record has everything from chunky, bizarre time signatures to prog rhythms to impressive note flurries all intertwined with intricate melodies. However the key is to keep all this from sounding in cohesive or dis-jointed...This isn't math metal here...But it does take some time to get all the different nuances and flavors of this entire Lp "

In the end fans of Theory In Practice,Anata, Decapitated would all enjoy this along with most people in between. There is much more to offer than straight D.M for anyone that chooses to read between the lines !

The band is giving this away for free on their website also....Very Cool shit indeed !

7. Scabs of Trust
8. Ivory Tower
9. To Hell
10. Category of the Dead
11. Melting the Mountain
12. Afterburner

Origin - USA
Style - Thrash Metal

" When I heard Havok's first E.p. 'Pwn 'em all'..I knew these youngsters had some serious potential...But now on their debut full-length..They have took it to another impressive level ! "

" First of all: It cracks me up when I hear people talk shit about the current Thrash Revival..And how these bands are just re-hashing the classic stuff from the 80s..And how Slayer and Exodus are legends and their is no Thrash anymore "

" If you ask me all music and genres are cyclical...They just come around every 20-30 years for a new generation of bands putting out their version of the music and paying homage to the early originators. I am old and yes I was there in the start..But I still dig this new shit and a new Testament album if it kicks ass "

" Holy cripes...I need to get off the painkillers..I'm fucking angry or something"
Havok from Denver ,Colorado are one of the leading contenders in 2009 to me. This album has all you want in a strong Thrash album...Riffs...Riffs...Riffs and a highly energetic attitude to go along with it. The vocals reek of Chuck Billy...But who cares..They fit well and lyrically these guys have some different shit to say...Anyway..What I'm saying is ...This LP is very good and should go along way to getting this band around the world for a few spins before its over !....Damn..I wish I was along for the ride..Just like the old days !

Destruction,Mayhem,Killing !......Ahh..Whatever !

Demo was done under the name 'Treachery'...The band since changed names to 'Architorture'

Origin - Finland
Style - Thrash Metal

" Born in 2005...Treachery..Now Architorture has been playing ripping Thrash Metal in and around (Vantaa) Finland "

" These guys sound like a deadly mixture of Slayer meets Kreator...Pietu sounds like a young Mille clone if you ask me....That cool raspy scream/yell sounds so perfect in music like this "

" Of the 4 tracks..3 are short blasts of intense Thrash madness...Then there is the epic 'Blood God'...8 minutes of Hypnosia sounding Thrash...Replete with time changes and destruktive solos...Truly awesome !

Tell me again why these kinds of bands aren't signed?....Hopefully someone does..

Fans of Hypnosia,Kreator etc. you cant go wrong here....

sorry I dont have the cover....oh well..

1. Dying to Testify
2. Krüsher
3. Eternal Bloodshed
4. Completing the Prophecy
5. On the Brink of Doomsday

Origin - Sweden
Style - Thrash Metal

" On this site I try to bring you a vast repertoire of different Metal music...And like always... I search high and low for new bands and unheard gems. So it seems lately I am back in the Thrash mode (wasn't that a name of an Artillery song?)...anyway..Here I bring you a young band out of Karlstad,Sweden and this just kicks ass ! "

" Inferior deliver blasting thrash, as it was meant to be. Tight, fast, aggressive and well performed. Really dig on the time changes in the tracks and the ripping solos. The production is great for this style of music. Just listen to the opening track ‘Dying To Testify’ which is a real punch in the face with its intensity and speed. Kristian Karlsson on vocals sounds just as pissed off as Slayers Tom Araya at his best moment "

" Fast...Angry....Catchy....Aggressive Thrash Metal just the way I like it !...This brings me back to a day when I would discover new bands and play it for all my friends on an old Kenwood tube amp and some 4 foot high JBL speakers...Oh shit..That's right..I still do....Again..These guys deserve your attention...Track it down and buy it !

And one more thing: I will even let them slide for the spelling error on the cover...Seems more underground anyway..

Thrash is the law !.......Believe it!

Fast, short, aggressive thrashers bordering on death is what these guys offer; an obscure, but Classic Release !

9. Perfect Enema
10. Pitchblack
11. All For Extinction

Origin - Sweden
Style - Thrash Metal

" The Swedes Subcyde has been around as a band since 1997, and why this is their first full length album, I can only be guessing about, because they sure have something to offer in the aggressive end of the thrash scene "

" Musical comparisons to early Testament, Machine Head, Sepultura and even Pantera can easily be made, and I think it overall holds the level of the mentioned bands. So this is more old school type of thrash, but also with a groovy edge on the riffing part. That doesn’t mean that it’s worn out or gets boring stylistically..."

" A very professional recording,powerful production....But why the dark artwork?
It just doesn't match up with the album....Pentagram,Horned Monster..Cool...Just make it so we can make it out better......Anyway...This is a top notch record...Check it out !

Assorted Heap - Mindwaves (1992)

2. Holy ground
3. What I confess
4. Nice to beat you
5. Mindwaves
6. Dealing with dilemma
7. Cardial sin
8. Hardcore incorrigible
9. Artificial intelligence

Origin - Germany
Style - Thrash Metal

" Assorted Heap was a German thrash metal band that existed in the early 90s. They were signed to the label 1MF (1 More Flop Records) and supposedly their best selling band. In 1991 they opened up for Paradise Lost. After two albums and the disappearance of their label they broke up "

" With their second album Assorted Heap created something of a minor masterpiece. While ' The Experience Of Horror'(Debut) was a bit simple and rough around the edges, Mindwaves shows some great progress in the band's style. Better produced than the debut, Mindwaves sports a thick and heavy sound "

" Musically the development between the two releases is quite evident almost immediately - while the songs still remain fast and heavy stompers, they have more hooks and memorable riffs than ever. This album was one of the last great Thrash Albums during a time when Death Metal reigned supreme..And Thrash mostly died off "

With its marvellous dark atmosphere, Mindwaves is nothing short of outstanding !

09. Inner Revolution
10. Truthless B.C.
11. Obliteration (Unlimited

Origin - Brazil

Style -Thrash Metal

" 2nd album from one of Brazil's best kept secrets.....This second onslaught is a re-vamped version of the debut "One Step Behind Anger". Though "Image Of Disorder" is a tad bit thicker, harsher and darker, definitely more polished and very possible even a bit more consistent than its predecessor "

" After a intro sets the mood..'Poison Head' comes bursting out of the speakers..A true riff-tastic piece. “Bitter Dominance” showcases the extreme end of the band’s sound as buzzing guitars and blastbeats flavor their thrash with the choicest death metal, an ingredient that’s heard elsewhere on the album. Now some of you may be turned away by the monotone bark of the vocals...They get the job done..nothing more...nothing less "

" I would call this modern Thrash with Death Metal leanings....Think The Haunted,Dew Scented etc...

2. Random Decay
3. Repulsive Death
4. Plagued Birth
5. Severe Psychopathology
6. Personality Conflict
7. Eroded Thoughts

Origin - USA
Style - Death Metal

" One and only album from (Plainfield/Joliet/Chicago, Illinois) Deathsters Morgue "

" Morgue issued this album in 1993 on Grind Core records and then proceeded to disappear...On this record Morgue played Death Metal in the Technical U.S. Metal vein...Taking influences from Pestilence,Cianide,Death Etc. "

" The guitar riffs are very thrashy and technical in the early 90s tradition. Excellent lead work and rhythms punctuate the entire album. The middle section of 'Plagued Birth' is just killer. The vocalist is exceptionally brutal with a hoarse raspy Martin Van Drunen sounding growl. 'Severe Psychopathology' and 'Plagued Birth' are two of the stand out tracks, although all 7 are excellent. "

Highly Reccommended for fans of Pestilence,early Gorguts,Oppressor,Death Etc.....

Go Ahead !.........Get It!

" This is their latest..And is no different than what you would expect...Highly atmospheric Death Metal with varying tempos and some cool grinding in places. Vocally: Extra deep growls that are placed well in the mix...The production is grimy..But clear..With that bit of demo sound in it "

Slugathor is a fine representative from the Finnish scene...Experienced and well done albums from musicians that know what they want.....
