Human Fate/Part One/Doweet Records/2014 CD Re-Issue Review

  Human  Fate  are  a  band  from  France  that plays  a  mixture  of  world  music,  experimental  and   extreme  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2009  album  "Part  One"  which  was  re-issued  by  Doweet  Records  in  the  year  of  2014.

  Folk  instruments  and  ethnic  sounds  start  off  the  album  along  with  some  multi-cultured  female  vocals  a  few  seconds  later  and  after  the  intro  death  metal  vocals  find  their  way  into  the  music  and  the  music  starts  mixing  the  ethnic  sounds  with  a  more  melodic  and  extreme  groove  metal  sound  along  with  some  spoken  word  parts.

  Acoustic  guitars  find  their  way  into  the  music  constantly  during  the  album  and  also  mix  in  with  the  heavy  parts  on  a  regular  basis  along  with  a  good  amount  of  female  vocals  being  mixed  in  with  the  death  metal  growls  and  screams  and  you  can  hear  a  good  amount  of  new  age,  middle  eastern  and  hindi  folk  music  elements  throughout  all  of  the  tracks  while  the  main  focus  is  on  a  death/groove  metal  sound.

  On  some  of  the  later  tracks  melodic  male  vocals  and  hardcore  style  screams  are  added into  certain  sections  of  the  recording  as  well  as  the  music  adding  in  more  metalcore  influences  into  their  musical  style  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  on  the  album  have  a  very  heavy  powerful  sound  to  them  and  as  the  album  progresses  blast  beats  are  added  into  certain  sections  of  the  recording.

  Human  Fate  takes  the  heaviness  of  death  metal,  groove  and  metalcore  and  mixes  it  in  with  progressive,  folk,  ethnic  and  world  music  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own,  the  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  life,  death  and  mankind.

  In  my  opinion  Human  Fate  are  a  very  great  sounding  mixture  of  world  music,  experimental  and  extreme  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Unify  Mankind"  "Seed  Of  Creation"  and  "Pariah".  8  out  of  10.

Aposento/Self Titled/Xtreem Music/2014 CD Review


  Aposento  are  a  band  from  Spain  that  plays  a  very  old  school  form  of  death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  titled  2014  album  which  was  released  by  Xtreem  Music.

  A  very heavy  and  skull  crushing  sound  starts  off  the  album  along  with  some  death  metal  growls  a  few  seconds  later  and  the  band  also  uses  some  melody  and  early  90's  style  technical  playing  long  before  it  was  considered  a  genre  which  leads  up  to  fast  parts  and  blast  beats  becoming  a  part  of  the  music.

  All  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  dominant  sound  in  all  of  the  tracks  that  are  presented  on  the  album  and  the  lead  guitars  are  very  old  school  sounding  death  metal  solos  and  on  some  of  the  later  songs  high  pitched  screams  start  mixing  in  with  the  deep  growls  along  with  a  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  the  band  seems  to  be  heavily  influenced  by  the  early  Florida  death  metal  bands  with  some  of  the  tracks    sounding  like  some  of  the  more  famous  bands  of  that  scene  and  era.  and  the  blast  beats  they  utilize  have  a  very  brutal  sounding  feeling  to  them  at  times.

  Aposento  go  back  to  the  early  90's  Florida  death  metal  sound  with  their  music  ignoring  all  modern  trends  and  bringing  in  a  more  raw  and  simple  approach  to  this  genre,  the  production  sounds  very  old  school  yet  professional  at  the  same  time  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  Spanish  and  cover  darkness,  gore,  occult  and  ufo  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Aposento  are  a  very  great  sounding  old  school death  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Aliens  -  Seres  del  Mas  Alla"  "La  Valla"  and  "Alma  Condenada".  8  out  of  10.

  Insense  are  a  band  from  Norway  that  plays  a  mixture  of  death  metal,  thrash,  groove,  and  hardcore  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2014  album  "De:  Evolution"  which  was  released  as  a  joint  effort  between  Mas-Kina  Recordings  and  Indie  Recordings.

  A  very  dark  and  heavy  groove  metal  sound  starts  off  the  album  along  with  some  aggressive  screams  which  have  a  death  metal  edge  to  them  as  well  as  mixing  in  growls  and  melodic  vocals  and  after  the  intro  the  music  continues  in  this  tradition  but  having  a  more  structured  and  organized  sound.

  After  awhile  the  music  starts  mixing  in  more  alternative,  emo  and  mainstream  rock  sounds  along  with  a  mixture  of  both  clean  and  heavy  parts  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  the  band  also  utilizes  a  great  amount  of  melody  in  their  sound  as  well  as  having  a  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  while  only  having  a  small  amount  of  blast  beats  being  utilized.

  As  the  album  progresses  hardcore  style  breakdowns  start  becoming  a  huge  part  of  the  bands  musical  sound  and  they  also  bring  in  a  brief  use  of  pianos  on  one  of  the  tracks  and  on  some  of  the  later  songs  a  small  amount  of  melodic  guitar  solos  are  utilized  at  times  along  with  some  elements  of  djent  being  added  into  their  musical  sound.

  Insense  have  a  musical  sound  that  has  the  heaviness  of  death,  thrash,  groove  metal  and  hardcore  while  also  having  the  melody  and  mainstream  feeling  of  emo  and  alternative  and  while  this  is  not  something  I  listen  to  on  a  regular  basis  I  still  feel  the  songs  are  very  well  executed,  the  production  sounds  very  professional  while  th e lyrics  are  divided  into  4  different  concepts  and  cover  dark  and  real  life  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Insense  are  a very  decent  sounding  mixture  of  alternative,  death  metal,  thrash,  groove  and  hardcore  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Meandering"  "What  Life"  "Sick  Is  the  Will"  and  "Some  Holy  Thing".  7/2  out  of  10.

Monumentomb Interview

 

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band? 

Sure. We formed just under a year ago and we’re all based in Kent in the garden of England (So to speak). Myself, Alex and Lee all met at separate occasions in a pub and were all looking to form a band that’s playing a style that’s not even been done before by other bands from the area. Gaius joined later after the EP was recorded and we met in my local Metal pub previous months beforehand.

2.Recently you have released a new ep, can you tell us a little bit more about your musical sound and what are some of the things that you have been able to bring out with your newer band that you wear not able to do with the groups that you where a part of in the past?

The primary focal point for us is the Old-School late 80’s and early 90’s Death Metal. Essentially taking all the foundations of that time period and replicating the sound with a modern touch, like the production on the recording was all created via modern hardware. With Monumentomb there is far more scope and options in terms of the style, riffs and structures, whereas in previous bands I’ve played for there were limitations when it came to trying to adopt a different approach. All the ideas from over the years I couldn’t use are being vented now, the autonomy now is totally ideal. 

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

To state the obvious: Death! Also taking inspiration from topics of Necromancy, The Monk by Matthew Lewis, The Necronomicon, Lovecraft and his associated grimoires. A lot of cult horror movies from the 80’s play a huge part in inspiring the atmosphere that the lyrics attempt to portray. 

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Monumentomb'?

The name itself was the name of an album by a terrific band called Nominon from Sweden. The name always stood-out for me and encapsulated the essence of what I wanted. A monumental name that ties in with the morbid themes. After asking Nominon, they kindly gave me permission to use it.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?

We’ve only played 4 shows in total this year, we started playing live in March 2014. In light of that, 2 particular shows in Sheerness and Gillingham in Kent have been the best so far. The reasons for this are that the crowd responses were killer, very encouraging to see that kind of energy on stage. Our live shows are always kept as aggressive, furious and as active as possible. We always prefer to keep mobile and engage the crowd. 

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

Yes, we do. We’re playing a headlining one in Kent on Friday 13th June (auspicious!) and one in October with Gravecrusher which is our first London date of the year. As for touring, it’s something we want to pursue for sure but don’t have anything confirmed yet. 

7.Currently you are unsigned are you looking for a label or have received any interest?

We are currently dealing with a label at the moment, but at this stage it’s all waiting to be set-in-stone and establishing a release date. I can say that it will be out on CD only at the moment, and the booklet inlay design is almost nearing completion. It will all be announced as soon as possible!

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of old school death metal?

It’s been all extremely positive so far, from all over the globe such as USA, Peru, Chile, Brazil, Mexico, Germany, Spain and the rest of Europe, Thailand and India to name a few. We have had a decent amount of people getting in touch outside of the UK, it’s always great to see that, especially as we’re hoping to play overseas in future. A few of these guys have said that we’ve managed to capture a sound which is very close to Bolt Thrower’s, which wasn’t entirely intentional!

9.When can we expect a full length album and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

New material is still being written at the moment. Within the next year is the ideal goal to have a full-length released for us. As for where we’re heading musically, sticking to our main roots and influences always gears the musical direction, we also draw influences/inspiration from recent releases as well. 

10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

To name a few there is early Death, Morbid Angel, Carcass and Entombed, Autopsy, Unleashed, Dismember, Repugnant, Grave, Nominon, Bolt Thrower and Asphyx. I’m currently listening to the recently released Dead Congregation, mind-blowing is an understatement for it! From another aspect there's a lot of neo-classical and 80's virtuoso in the mix too like Malmsteen, Jason Becker, Steve Vai up to some recent shredders as well.

11.How would you describe your views on Satanism and Occultism?

I have friends that practice Luciferianism, and others that gear towards the more Crowley perception of Satanism. Luciferianism as opposed to Satanism, for me, makes a lot more sense. My reason for this is that Luciferianism is a belief structure that contains theistic denominations. It’s also influenced by various personal experiences. Some say it’s not a religion, but a lifestyle or code to follow. Occultism in itself has always intrigued me, as necromancy and black art rituals are frequently referred to in the lyrical content.

12.What are some of your non musical interests?

Reading into Scandinavian and Indo European history/WWI recently, museums, as I said about the lyrics I tend to watch movies. I like to maintain personal balance with an active social life with sight-seeing, country walks, and of course seeing mates down the pub etc. 

13.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Many thanks for getting in touch and hails from the tomb!

  Dark  sound  effects  start  off  the  album  before  going  into  a  very  heavy  direction  along  with  blast  beats  and  a  mixture  of  screams  and  growls  as  well  as  bringing  in  a  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  they  also  add  morbid  sounding  melodies  into their  musical  sound  at  times  and  the  band  only  uses  a  small  amount  of  guitar  solos  and  leads.

  The  music  that  is  present  on  this  album  is  a  reflection  of  how  death  metal  sounded  during  that  time  and  you  can  tell  the  band  was  heavily  influenced  by  the  other  bands  that  where  in  this  genre  around  the  early  90's  and  they  also  add  in  back  up  shouts  and  spoken  word  parts  on  some  of  the  songs  which  was  rarely  used  back  then.

  As  the  album  progresses  clean  singing  is  added  briefly  on  one  of  the  tracks  which  which  considered  rare  and  original  for  a  death  meta l band  in  1995,  the  second  side  of  the  album  is  an  old  demo  from  the  early  90's  and  the  tracks  are  in  the  same  direction as  the  album  but  with  a  more  rawer  sound  and  the  music  also  has  a  more  dirty  style  of  death  metal  to  them  and  some  of  the  songs  utilize  a  small  amount  of  synths  which  also  gives  their  music  a  very  dark  and  evil  atmosphere  and  they  also  bring  in  a  small  amount  of  female  vocals  on  one  of  their  songs.

  In  my  opinion  Vomiting  Corpses  where  a  very  great  sounding  death  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should c heck  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Kingdom  Of  The  Blind"  "Ice-Age  Of  the  Common  Sense"  "Screaming  Spirits"  and  "Exhausted  Will  TO  Live".  8  out  of  10.  

Day Of Doom Interview




1.Can you give us an update on what is going on with the band these days? (Rich)We have been playing alot of shows and we have been getting ready for our release "The Gates of Hell" to be released June 6th on Lavadome productions  http://www.lavadome.org/

2.You have a new album coming out in June, can you tell us a little bit more about the musical direction of the new recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past? (Rich) With The Gates we wanted to just push our self and also bring out the other style's of Metal we love.Our past releases "Night of Horror and Slaves to Insanity" had the there own feel mostly brutal death metal but Gate's has more of a progressive feel to it, longer songs and twisted guitar solo's. (Doug) We come from a time long forgotten, We are they who howled at the midnight moon during the 80's and 90's schooled on old world death metal and into a new error of brutality armed with the chaos of modern barbarity. To me this new release is a tutorial for the luridly obscene and unbinds the boundries from all our other releases.
3.In the beginning the band was instrumental but know has vocals and lyrics, what was the decision behind adding these into your musical sound? (Rich) We have been asked this a few times and the truth is we always had the idea of putting vocal's into the music but we put some stuff on Myspace and a few people just thought we we're an instrumetal band but that was never the case. We do have versions of those demos with vocals and we do love instrumentals and have one on The Gates of Hell Then we'll be doing another sick one on our next release.
4.Can you tell us a little bit more about the lyrical topics the band explores with the newer music and also do the band members have any interest in Occultism? (Doug) In a way, we are a cult in a sense that this music is a way to vent our anger at religion amongst other things in general. Religion is angry, saturated with fear and lies intended to nourish the simple minded closed. I suppose our lyrics are intended not for you to pick sides but to open peoples minds to the grand underworld of our Death Metal Cult. Follow us...
5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Day Of Doom'? (Rich) Many people think the name came from a Superman comic but the truth is the name came from the character Thusa Doom from the movie Conan the Barbarian. In the movie Thusa Doom said "Purging is at last at hand. Day of Doom is here. All that is evil, all their allies; your parents, your leaders, those who would call themselves your judges; those who have lied and corrupted the Earth, they shall all be cleansed".At that moment the name of the band was spawned.
6.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance? (Rich) One show that stand's out was playing with Deicide at Gramercy Theater. The turn out was great and we crushed it that night and another show that stands out was playing with the mighty Suffocation at Webster Hall the place went ape shit as for our stage performance we feel we give off a vibe that is pure evil and power and the fan's have been feeding off of that vibe for sure. It's no holds barred when we hit the stage.
(Doug) Webster Hall yes! A kick ass show and we fall into our natural zones on stage as if our alter egos have broken thier demonic silence and have unleashed thier rage upon this dying world in the form of relentless drums and doom, maniacal guitars and the diabolic lower register of ear ripping bass.
7.Do you have any touring or show plans once the new album is released? (Rich) We do have a local show May 31st and are planing a CD release party (T.B.A) but no touring plan's at the moment but we would love to bring Day of Doom to the masses.
8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of brutal death metal? (Rich) It has been great. Many have said that the music has a old school feel with a new fresh outlook as well, so far we are very happy with the responce world wide. (Doug) We're looking forward to more positive feedback for this new release and I can personally guarantee that it will rip your face off so badly that you'll have to put it on over and over again just to get it back!
9.Are any of the band members involved with any other musical projects these days? (Rich) No day of doom is our full time and only band we all play in and we feel that's the best way to go so all our focus can be put into bringing the best into Day of Doom.
10.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future? (Rich) We will always test the limits musically and never let it get stale. For the next release we plan on writing what could be looked at as the Death Metal version of Rush's 2112. (Doug)  Expect a psychological whirlwind of esoteric tones and mind altering madness that will take you on a journey through the remnants of what is left of hell after we are through with it and unto earth thy doom explodes!
11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays? (Rich) Being from Long Island, Suffocation has always been an influence on us but we have always made it a point to not be carbon copy of them. Some other band's we love are Gorguts, Ripping corpse, Human Remains, Damonacy, Lethargy, Death, Morbid Angel, Slayer, Iron maiden, Rush, Dream Theater and Kiss as for what we're listening to today Nero Di Marte, Pyrrhon, Animals As Leaders but hands down the new Gorguts and Suffocation has not left the cd player.
12.What are some of your non musical interests? (Rich) We are very into art, Our guitar player Doug has his horror comic called Insane Tales From The Dead. If your into sick horror comics, you should check out his work for sure! (Doug) Terror yarns of decay and madness await you!www.insanetalesfromthedead.com Order issue number one now or be doomed!
13.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts? (Rich) We would like to say thanks to everyone who checked us out live or took the time to check out our music, it means alot to us and trust that if you love crushing brutal metal get your self over to the Lavadome website  http://store.lavadome.org/  and order a copy of The Gates of Hell and you will not be disappointed Stay evil DAY OF DOOM IS NEAR.

  A  very  melodic  and  technical  sound  starts  off  the  ep  before  going  into  a  heavier  direction  and  adding  in  a  mixture  of  growls  and  screams  along  with  some  powerful  sounding  bass  lines  and  on  the  following  track  the  music  starts  going  into  a  faster  direction  along  with  some  brutal  sounding  blast  beats.

   The  band  has  a  good  balance  with  their  music  taking  some  very  technical  and  skillful  playing  and  mixing  it  with  brutal  death  metal  and  I  can  also  hear  elements  of  old  school  thrash  metal  of  the  technical  variety  in  their  musical  sound  and  the  last  track  is  a  cover  of  Death's  "See  Through  Dreams"..

  Locusta  have  a  very  interesting  sound  with  their  music  being  a  brutal  form  of  death  metal  that  is  also  very  technical,  melodic  and  old  school  sounding  at  the  same  time,  the  production  sound s very  professional  for  being  a  self  released  recording  and  the  lyrics  cover  dark  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Locusta  are  a  very  great  sounding  technical  death  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should c heck  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "The  Cull"  and  "See  Through  Dreams".  8  out  of  10.

  Acoustic  guitars  along  with  melodic  guitar  leads  start  off  the  album  with  the  music  going  into  a  heavier  direction  a  few  seconds  alter  as  well  as  adding  in  a  good  amount  of  melody  before  speeding  up  and  adding  in  brutal  blast  beats  and  death  metal  growls  and  they  also  utilize  a  great  amount  of  thrash  influences.

  The  guitar  leads  are  in  a  very  melodic  and  technical  sounding  direction  and  they  also  add  in  high  pitched  screams  into  certain  sections  of  the  recording  and  on  some  of  the  alter  tracks  acoustic  guitars  make  their  return  which  then  take  the  music  into  a  more  atmospheric  and  progressive  death  metal  direction.

  On  some  of t he  alter  tracks  angry  shouts  are  added  into  the  music  along  with  small  amounts  of  demonic  voices  and  avant  garde  synths  are  added  in  briefly  on  one  track  and  the band  also  has  a  sound  that  is  close  to  black  metal  for  a  few  seconds  and  the  album  gets  more  diverse  and  epic  as  time  goes  on  by  while  also  always  remaining  very  heavy  and  melodic  all  at  the  same  time.

  Konkeror  create  a  very  diverse  dearth  metal  album  that  combine s the  brutal  and  progressive  sides  of  the  genre  together  as  well  as  adding  in  a  good  amount  of  melody  and  old  school  influences  while  also  still  sounding  very  modern,  the  production  is  very  professional  sounding  and  the  lyrics  cover  Occultism,  Philosophy,  Mythology,  Religion  and  Space.

  In  my  opinion  Konkeror  are  a  very  great  sounding  progressive  death  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should c heck  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "I,  Monolithic"  "Incantations"  "The  Pillars  of  Creation"  and  "Cenotaph"  which  is  a  Bolt  thrower  cover.  8/5  out  of  10.

  A  very  old  school  thrash  sound  starts  off  the  album before  adding  in  blast  beats  and  a  mixture  of  screams  which  are  in  the  more  thrash  vein  and  growls  which  bring  out  the  death  metal  along  with  some  melody  which  they  also  mix  into  the  guitar  solos  and  leads  which  also  enhance  the  old  school  metal  feeling  of  the  record.

  All  of  the  musical  instruments  on  the  ep  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  the  music  is  very  old  school  sounding  going  back  to  a  time  where  death  metal  had  a  more  thrash  orientated  feeling  86-88  era  to  it  while  the  growls   on  the  album  are  where  the  true  death  metal  elements  really  start  to  kick  in  and  on  one  of  the  tracks  there  is  a  brief  use  of  spoken  word  aprts  beign  utilized  and  the  last  track  is  very  long  and  epic  in  length.

  War  Messiah  are  another  young  band  playing  a  very  old  school  style  taking  80's  thrash  and  the  beginning  era  of  death  metal  and  combining  them  together  along  with  a  good  amount  of  melody,  the  production  has  an  old  school  feeling  while  also  being  modern  at  the  same  time  while  the  lyrics  cover  anti  religion,  war,  suicide  and  graveyard  themes.

  The  sound s of  hell  start  off  the  album  before  going  into  a  brutal  and  fast  death  metal  sound  along  with  a  mixture  of  growls,  screams  and  blast  beats  as  well  as  bringing  in  solos  and  leads  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  the  band  also  has  clean  and  acoustic  playing  in  their  sound  at  times  which  also  brings  a  very  progressive  sounding  feeling  to  the  recording.

  The  horror  movie  samples  the  band  uses  makes  the  music  have  a  more  evil  edge  to  it  as  well  as  making  the  brutal  death  metal  sound  this  band  creates  have  a  dark  atmosphere  and  the  band  also  bring  in  small  amounts  of  melody  into  certain  sections  of  the  recording  along  with  a  light  thrash  influence  which  is  more  closer  to  the  first  wave  death  metal  style.

  As  the  album  progresses  the  band  finds their  sound  mixing  in  the  early  brutal  death  metal  sound  with  the  more  modern  one  while  also  staying  away  from  anything  ultra  technical  and  bringing  back  a  more  back  to  basics  approach  to  brutal  death  metal  and  their  instrumentals  are  the  best  i  have  hear  since  Morbid  Angle's  early  work  wit h this  band  also  seeming  to  have  an  influence  on  the  band.

  Day  Of  Doom  bring  back  a  brutal  death  metal  sound  that  has  no  elements  of  anything  core  or  too  technical  while  they  still  have  a  small  amount  of  that  and  also  brings  back  an  evil  atmosphere  which  most  brutal  bands  of  this  genre  ignore,  the  production  is  very  professional  sounding  while the lyrics  cover  dark,  horror  and  occult  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Day  Of  Doom  are  a  very  great  sounding  brutal  death  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should c heck  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "The  Gates  Of  Hell"  "An  Evil  Demoncy  (The  Last  Days  of  Sodom"  "Circle  of  Eternal  Aftermath"  and  "Through  Horrible  Despair".  8/5  out  of  10.  



  

Monumentomb/Ritual Exhumanation/2014 EP Review

  A  ritualistic  sounding  intro   before  dark  and  melodic  sound  starts  off  the  ep  as  well  speeding  up  a  bit  and  adding  in  blast  beats  and  more  raw  aggression  which  leads  up  to  growls  and  a  more  mid  80's  style  of  death  metal  which  also  has  a  thrash  feeling  at  times  and  the  band  also  brings  in  a  great  amount  of  melody  into  their  music.

  The  guitar  solos  and  leads  enhance  the  melodic  feeling  of  the  recording  along  with  a  small  amount  of  high  pitched  screams  and  a  lot  of  the  tracks  have  a  Swedish  death  metal  feeling  to  them  along  with  a  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  the  rawness of  the  early  Florida  bands  and  the  band  never  add  in  any  influences  from  the  metal  genres  of  the  last  20  years  into  their  music  except  for  maybe  the  melodic  vocals  they  utilize  briefly.

  Monumentomb  are  another  younger  band  going  back  to  the  roots  of  true  death  metal  and  adding  in  their  own  melodic  take  on t he  genre  and  while  the  songs  are  not  very  original  they  are  still  played  in  the  true  ways  of  death  metal,  the  production  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  old  school  sound  and  the  lyrics  cover  darkness,  evil  and  death.

  In  my  opinion  Monumentomb  are  a  very  great  sounding   old  school  death  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "In  The  Crypt  Devoured"  and  "Ritual  Exhumanation".  8  out  of 10.

Morbid Flesh Interview

.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording of the new ep?

Well, the reception and the reviews of the EP have been good everywhere. We’re really satisfied with it, despite it took a long time to get released.

2.Recently you have released it more about the musical direction of the new recording and alos hos does it differ from your previous full length and demo?

Our line up has changed since the recording of the Reborn in Death LP, so of course the sound has changed as well. I think we now have a kind of Heavy Metal melodic vibe in the doomy riffs, and more compact and aggressive riffs for the faster parts. Gusi, the previous drummer, is now on the guitar, along with me, and Michel is the current drummer. Vali is still the vocalist and Makeda on bass. The sound may have changed, but the path and the objectives are still the same: raw Death Metal the way it should be.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?

The same as always, you know: death, putrefaction, tombs, horror films…

4.The band was originally known as Undertaker, what was the decision behind the name change and also the meaning and inspiration behind the name'Morbid Flesh'?

I wasn’t in the band when the name changed, but as far as I know they played in a more melodic way, and they wanted to have a rawer sound and a different aim when UNDERTAKER became MORBID FLESH.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and also how would you describe your stage performance?

We haven’t played much with the current line-up. Our last gig was with INSULTERS and CRUZ a couple of weeks ago and it worked well considering we hadn’t played in a long time. We don’t use fireworks or things like that on stage, so I think we play like a regular Death Metal band.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?

We’re looking forward to play live more as long as the gig lineup is interesting. We’re talking about some things in the near future but, since we haven’t really specified anything, we can’t tell.

7.The new ep come out on Unholy Prophecies, can you tell us a little bit more about this label?

Walter is doing a great job with Unholy Prophecies, even though the label is still beginning. We met him through his relationship with INSULTERS, and he has shown a genuine interest in our new songs. I think that for us, in the levels we’re working, our new stuff can’t be promoted better.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of death metal?

For now the feedback is being great. The opinions about our work are being pretty similar, so I think we’ve achieved a specific sound.

9.What is going on with the other musical projects these days that some of the band members are involved?

Makeda plays the bass in INSULTERS (crude and fueled Metal of Death). Michel is the drummer in TORT (Doom-Sludge), they have recently recorded a full length that is going to kick asses. Vali sings in CRUZ (Death Metal with punkish vibe), they’re going to release their first work soon, and Gusi plays drums in INSULTERS and GRAVEYARD (ancient Death Metal). Also, Gusi’s AGONISED has finally released its demo through Black Mass Records.

10.When can we expect another full length album and also what musical  direction do you see the band heading into during the future?

We’re working on new songs, but we don’t have a specific idea on what we are going to do in the near future. Probably we won’t record a new full length by now, but it’s too early to say something. We’re boosting the doomy and melodic parts, and the faster ones as well, so contrast and feelings are going to be higher.

11.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

The influences for MORBID FLESH haven’t changed much. You know, the classic Metal bands and albums, from Europa and America mainly, that can be related with Death Metal in any way. I’ve been listening a lot to the last MORBUS CHRON album, Sweven, and also ANTAEUS, THORNS, THIN LIZZY and first RAINBOW.

12.What are some of your non musical interests?

We all have our own lives, hobbies, jobs and studies, nothing out of the ordinary, if you ask me.

13.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Remember to listen to Iron Maiden every day and stay tuned for news related to MORBID FLESH.

Horrid/Sacrilegious Fornication/Dunkelheit Produktionen/2014 CD Review


  Horrid  are  a  band  from  Italy  which  also  has  a  history  that  goes  back  to  89  that  plays  a  very  occult  and  old  school  form  of  death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2014  album  "Sacrilegious  Fornication"  which  will  be  released  by  Dunkelheit  Produktionen.

  Horror  movie  sounds  start  off  the  album  along  with  spoken  word  ritualistic  parts  which  also  leads  up  to  a  very  dark,  melodic  and  old  school  death  metal  sound  in  the  primitive  Swedish  tradition  as  well  as  some  growls  and  blast  beats  and  the music  also  starts  to  get  faster  and  more  aggressive  as  well  as  having  a  very  evil  atmosphere.

  The  music  on  this  album  is  heavily  rooted  in  the  Swedish  sound  of  the  early  90's  while  also  having  some  of  the  more  raw  element s of  the  early  American  death  metal  bands  as  well  as  having  some  evil  sounding  melodies  and  a  very  dark  lyrical  content  that  is  closer  to  black  than  death  metal.

  The  songs  go  back  to  the  evil,  rawer  and  darker  nature  of  old  school  death  metal  but  with  a  more  modern  sound  and  production  and  they  also  bring  in  a  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  to  keep  all  of  the  songs  to  sound  very  interesting,  diverse  and  blasphemous  and  at  times the  growls  sound  very  guttural  and  demonic  in  certain  sections  of  the  recording  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  and  growls  dominate  the  recording.

  Horrid  have  a  very  evil  sound  to their  music  that  can  only  be  done  by  veterans  and  the  music  is  very  true  to  what  death  metal  was  meant  to  sound  like,  the  production  is  very  professional  sounding  and  the  lyrics  cover  Satanism,  Occultism,  Necromancy  and  Blasphemous  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Horrid  are  a  very  great  sounding  old  school,  occult  death  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should c heck  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Necromancy"  "Blood  On  Satan's  Claw"  and  "Goddess  of  Heretical  Perversity".  8/9  out  of  10.

       

Rude/Soul Recall/FDA Rekotz/2014 CD Review


  Rude  are  a  band  from  California  that  plays  a  very  old  school  form  of  death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2014  album  "Soul  Recall"  which  will  be  released  by  FDA  Rekotz.

  A  very  heavy  and  slow  Florida  style  death  metal  sound  starts  off  the  album  and  all  of  the  musical  instruments  sound  very  powerful  once  the  music  starts  heading  into  a  more  mid  paced  direction which  also   leads  up  to  growls  making  their  way  onto  the  album  along  with  some  fast  parts  and  blast  beats  shortly  after  that.

  The  guitar   solos  and  leads  bring  a  lot  of  chaos  the  the  music  and  the  vocals  remind  me  of  a  mixture  of  Morgoth  and  early  Pestilence  as  well  as  the  band  on  this  album  being  more  in  tune  with  the  mid  80's  and  early  90's  styles  of  death metal and  the  band  also  brings  in  a  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts.

  As  the  album  progresses  some  long  and  epic  tracks  are  added onto  the  album  and  the  bass  guitars  also  have  a  great  amount  of  darkness  to them  and  on  one  of  the  later  tracks  there  is  a  brief  use  of  clean  guitars  which  also  take  the  album  into  a  more  epic  old  school  death  metal  direction  and  at  time s the  music  can  be  what  would  of  been  considered  brutal  in  91.  

  Rude  stick  to  a  very  filthy  and  dark  death metal  direction  from  beginning  to  end  of  the  album  with  nothing  modern  being  added  into  their  sound,  the  production  sounds  very  old  school  while  utilizing  the  technology  that  would  of  been  considered  professional  in  the  early  90's  while  the  lyrics  cover  darkness  and  occultism  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Rude  are  a  very  great  sounding  old  school  death  metal b and  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Haunted"  "Soul  Recall"  and  "Last  Of  Us".  8/5  out  of  10.

Undead Process/When The Horde Arrived/Senseless Life Records/2014 Full Length Review


  Undead  Process  are  a  band  from Canada  that  plays  a  very  old  school  form  of  death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2014  album  "When  the  Horde  Arrives"  which  was  released  by  Senseless  Life  Records.

  A  very  dark  and  heavy  old  school  death  metal  sound  starts  off  the  album  along  with  some  growls  a  few  seconds  later  which  leads  to  the  music  speeding  up  a  bit  along  with  some  powerful  sounding  bass  guitars  and  the  music  starts  incorporating  more  blast  beats  and  the  band  also  brings  in  a  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts.

  A  good  amount  of  melody  is  mixed  in  with  the  music  along  with  a  small  amount  of  thrash  influences  as  well  as  getting  more  brutal  as  times  goes  on  by  and  the  music  sticks  mostly  to  a  mid  paced  direction  and  a  couple  of  the  tracks  are  long  and  epic  in  length  and  there  is  very little  in  the  way  of  guitar  leads.

  Undead  Process  sticks  to  mostly  a  mid  paced  old  school  American  death  metal  sound  with  this  album  as  well  as  having  a  more  simple  approach  to  the  genre  and  while  this  is  not  one  of  my  favorite  styles  of  death  metal  I  still  feel  the  band  is  very  great  at  what  they  do,  the  production  has  a  very  professional  sound  to  it  and  the  lyrics  cover  dark,  gore  and  death  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Undead  Process  are  a  very  decent  sounding  old  school  death  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out t his  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Return  To  Death"  "When  The  Horde  Arrived"  and  "Walking  Dead".  7/5  out  of  10.

Under The Church/Self Titled/Pulverised Records/2014 CD Review


  Under  the  Church  are  a  band  from  Sweden  that  plays  a  very  old  school,  raw  and  ugly  form  of  death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  self  released  2014  album  which  will  be  released  by Pulverised  Records.

  Distorted  sounds  start  off  the  album  before  going  into  an  early  90's  Swedish  style  death  metal  sound  along  with  some  growling  vocals  and  melodies  and  the  music  is  in  a  more  raw  direction  than  most  of  the  bands  that  play  or  have  played  this  style  as  well  as  evoking  a  dark  atmosphere  which  is  done  all  without  synths.

  The  music  utilizes  a  mixture  of  slow,   mid  paced  and  fast  parts  along  with  blast  beats  being  added into  certain  sections  of  the  recording  and  when  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  added  into  the  music  it  starts  having  an  even  more  heavy  feeling  and  the  band  ignore  all  modern  trends  and  take  death  metal  back  to  is  more  underground,  raw  and  true  roots.

  You  can  tell  that  the  band  members  are  veterans  of  the  death  metal  scene  with  their  sound  being  very  old  school  and  not  having  a  retro  vibe  but  a  vibe  that  can  only  be  done  by  the  originators  of  Swedish  death  metal  which  these  musicians  where  a  part  off  with  Nirvana  2002  being  their  old  band  as  well  as  one  of  the  first  bands  in  their  home  country  playing  this  style.

  Under  the  Church  create  on  of  the  most  raw  sounding  old  school  death  metal  albums  that  has  a  sound  that  reminds  me  of  why  I  got  into  death  metal  in  the  first  place,  the  production  is  very  heavy,  raw  and  old  school  sounding  while  the  lyrics  cover  occultism,  gore  and  horror  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Under  the  Church  are  a  very  great  sounding  raw  and  old  school  death  metal b and  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Macabre  Cadaver"  "Under  the  Church"  and  "Haunted  by  Demons".  8/5  out  of  10.
