Killitorous - The Afterparty

Killitorous !! Don't you know who they are? Formed in 2006-07, the band is formed of current as well as ex-members of Suffocation, Vital Remains, Annihilator, First Fragment and Immersed .... Is it enough for you? This "The Afterparty" is the second official album after "Party, Grind" released in 2014 for these Killitorous, bands that from their...

Reptilium - Adrenochromacy

Second EP of four self-produced tracks for this band from South America and more precisely from Ecuador. "Adrenochromacy" follows the other EP "Conspiranoic" released in 2019 after one year. The strange thing is that I never expected, listening to all the tracks for the first time, that Reptilium came from overseas. Everything sounds so damned Euro...

Evoker - Evil Torment

Evoker come from Australia and present their first EP with the unmistakable title "Evil Torment". Active since 2016, the three guys released their first demo in 2018 and only after two years they release their first official work. Evoker present themselves with a sound attributable to an old school thrash / blackened / death metal. 6 songs witho...

Voorhees - Chapter Two

First album for these French death metal band called Voorhees, a band active since 2017 which by logo and name refer to Jason Voorhees from the "Friday The 13th" movies. "Chapter Two", as we said, is the band's first full length after the 2017 EP called "Chapter One" and the single of the song 'The Lucky Ones Die First' (later included in this albu...

Disminded - Beheading The Snake

"Beheading The Snake" is the second album by this German band called Disminded. Active since 2009, this latest work comes after 2 demos, an EP and the previous full "Out Of The Ashes" released in 2015. Disminded play an impactful death / thrash metal that reminded me so much of the well-known but at the same time underestimated Dew Scented and i...

Ad Vitam Infernal - Infernal Comedy

Debut album for this French two pieces band Ad Vitam Infernal, active since a couple of years and dedicated to a type of black/death with clear old school references. "Infernal Comedy" includes 8 songs, very similar to each other, that take inspiration from the old death metal scene like Centurian, Morbid Angel, Immolation and Deicide... but also f...

Tribe Of Pazuzu - King Of All Demons

Second EP, one year later from the last one, for this USA/Canada all-star blackened death metal band. "King Of All Demons" is the second effort for this ensemble that included people like Flo Mournier (Cryptopsy, Vltimas) on drums and John McEntee (Incantation, former Mortician/Immolation) on rhythm guitar. For this EP the band was reduced to a thr...

Nightbearer - Tales Of Sorcery And Death

Excellent beginning for these Germans guys, arrived just 2 years after their birth, to release, through the increasingly active (and on time) Testimony Records, their first full length entitled "Tales Of Sorcery And Death". This work (released in December 2019) confirms how much good the band had made us notice when in 2018 they released under Unho...

Pestifer - Expanding Oblivion

Third official album for Pestifer, Belgian band active since 2004. This "Expanding Oblivion" comes about 6 years after the previous work, quite a long time for a young band like them. Before getting an idea of this album, I had to listen many and many times all the tracks contained on it. "Expanding Oblivion" is not an album of easy description...

Red Dead - Forest Of Chaos

This is the very first time I've heard something about these Red Dead, french trio active since 2011. This "Forest Of chaos" should be the second official full length after "Therapy Of The Evil" published in 2017. Fortunately it was a nice surprise because these guys have released a really interesting album from all points of view. 12 songs, inc...

Devangelic - Ersetu

Third album for the Italians Devangelic, brutal death metal band from Rome, Italy. After their debut "Resurrection Denied" released in 2014 and the following (and much more mature) "Phlegethon" in 2017 comes now (official release May 15) this "Ersetu" under the increasingly active and enterprising Willowtip Records. Also the label for which the gui...

Fractured Insanity - Massive Human Failure

In the various and multiple record releases heard in the last years, I had missed these Fractured Insanity’s guys. A band that I had the opportunity to appreciate when they released their first album “When Mankind Becomes Diseased” in the far 2007. This Belgian band has done a lot on the streets, going from the second album released in 2010 (“Mass...
