I am born and raised in the land of murder and shaped like a mitten, without busting out a map that would be the outskirts of Detroit. Our metal scene greatly reflects our harsh winters, simmering summers, government abandonment and blood red murder. Ironically enough there is not much death metal that finds it way out to the surface of the garages and basements it is created in, even if it does, it usually isn’t even worth hearing. After last years single release of Ghastly Graves, Centenary is back to chew bubble gum and make resonating new school metal that gleams with the sound of OSDM, and they are all out of bubble gum.
I got my hands on a freshly pressed cd of …Where No Lives Matter and I gotta say, this is probably the best death metal band in Michigan right now, if not ever. From “Parade of Chainsaws” to “Ghastly Graves” this is an album that baths itself daily in the blood of the non-believers of the reanimation of the genre of death metal.
This is the soundtrack to the dismemberment of the fake fools that run around in our United States thinking they are brutal and lack skill and imagination. Break out the Chainsaw and rev it up because this E.P. is about to bring the evil dead back from the grave for you to leave in a liquid state of being. Knee Deep in the Blood of the Fucking Dead \,,/ (sorry Mike I know posting this shit is a little late by about 2 weeks.)
November seems to be a very short month for Death Metal, but quantity does not dictate quality. This is the list of November 2016 Death Metal Releases. If I have missed anything or if there is anything you want to be added to this list please comment and inform me of my ignorance. Check out Black Metal for November 2016 Here
Thrash Doom and Heavy Metal releases to be done soon.
Black Metal, a dynamic genre that has a depth greater than the ocean itself. There are bands that create something new, yet it is boring. There are bands that arrive that are just regurgitations of the past. There are bands that made a sound in this genre that are the staple, the epitome, the pinnacle. This is a genre that very rarely has something new, original, unique, fresh, and heavy as fuck in the traditional sense. Then comes Sacrificio‘s Guerra Eterna, I will cut my fucking tongue out right now for ever saying that black metal cannot surprise me any more.
Sacrificio‘s Guerra Eterna is an amazingly original throw back to proto-black metal without being any type of retro garbage. This is pure fucking black metal. You can feel the stagnant evil lingering in the air while this album spins… it’s fucking amazing. This is a piece of art that you do not come across every day, and it makes you tread lightly as this album will fuck you up!
This album is a giant fuck you to the second wave of black metal and all its clones that exist. Fuck off nowaday’s black metal and listen to fucking Sacrificio‘s Guerra Eterna. You better get this sick album when it drops December 9TH.
IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS, in conspiracy with NUCLEAR WAR NOW! PRODUCTIONS, is proud to present SACRIFICO‘s highly anticipated debut album, Guerra Eterna. Hailing from Spain, SACRIFICIO caused a stir in the underground with the release of their self-titled mini-album in 2014, which was also jointly released by IRON BONEHEAD and NUCLEAR WAR NOW! Chained in conservationism as a strict principle, the trio raised the banner of black metal’s first generation and reinvigorated its standards with Sacrificio. But now, with Guerra Eterna, these true warriors of the occult have eclipsed that feat by creating a humid mass of idiosyncratic, eldritch energy: a soundfield/headspace fully unified, a statement of steely, blood-drenched intent.
Like its debut short-length predecessor, SACRIFICIO‘s Guerra Eterna bristles and brims with the same strange intensity that earmarked the most unexpected and darkest latitudes of Columbia, Brazil, Czechoslovakia, and Hungary in ancient times. Verily, it is BLACK METAL, vociferously and vigorously, without parentheticals or qualifiers or other weakening aspects of nowadays “black metal.” And yet, throughout its staunch songwriting and more strident execution, Guerra Eterna finds SACRIFICIO in an advanced state of evolution, even if that “evolution” is inversely a sort of devolution, shackled as they are to the swirling scuzz that equally nods to the pioneering works of early deathrash legends and the contemporaneous bestiality of elder South American climes. Further, the production on the album is even more rounded and robust than the mini-album: as ever utilizing supposedly “arcane” methods of tube distortion and tape compression, it reveals aggression and mystery equally in a more pronounced manner.
Warriors summon to the bugle sound of death marches and bloodshed, intoning anthems of a timeless black metal apocalypse. Fierceness of colossal might unbounded, throughout barbarous aeons of atrocious warfare. Devastation and misery overrule for eternity. Only the dead will see the end of war…this is the sound of SACRIFICIO‘s Guerra Eterna.
Hailing from Sheboygan, Wisconsin, much like another thrash gem by the name of Morbid Saint, Toxic Ruin is here with Subterranean Terror. Like thrashing lightning storm Subterranean Terror by Toxic Ruin is a bolt of swift thrash sent from the speed demon gods themselves.
Released two months ago, I am just now hearing this band for the first time as I am writing this. This is some damn good thrash. From “Submerged in Chaos” to the self titled track “Toxic Ruin”, this album thrashes hard.
Ripping solos, solid rhythm sections and great thrashing beats, and that is just the first track “Submerged in Chaos”. This album progresses heavily and remorselessly thrashes.
This album will get you chanting IMMOLATION more than seeing aforementioned band live in concert.
