Acranius is slam death metal band from Germany. They released a EP before called ‘The Echo From Her Cracking Chest’. Now with their new vocalist, they decided to re-record these six songs and do another six new songs to create their first full-length. Expect a high dose of slamming breakdowns and get ready for some baltic sea brutality.. Read all!
A lot about Starkill is misleading. First off, the band name and the album cover. I expected power metal to the fullest, and the first seconds of Fires of Life, led me to believe that was the right. In the end, this band proved to be something else entirely..
Severe Mutilation is a death metal band from Bayamon, Puerto Rico. They’ve released their first full-length, Internal Putrefaction, in 2010 and now they’re ready to release their second full-length, Spawn of Hatred.. Get ready for some straightforward death metal!
Digging into the bands history I found out that it’s rather interesting because they’ve changed their style every now and then. What started as a death metal band, changed into a gothic metal band and is now back to being a death metal band… Read about this ‘new’ sound!
The tale of Lady Godiva might not immediately ring a bell. The legend tells that this 11th century noble women rode the streets of the English town Conventry naked. In this way, she wanted to force her husband to lift the imposed taxes on this tenants. This makes her a perfect icon for the seventh album of Heaven Shall Burn, VETO..
Fumes of Decay – Devouring The Excavated
Label: Sevared Records
Releasedate: 11 March
The first time I heard of Fumes Of Decay was at Houten Deathfest. They were the opening band, but they got me interested. The band is from Groningen, The Netherlands, and produce brutal death metal. Devouring The Excavated is the first full-length they’ve released so far and I was actually waiting for this after I listened to the demo. The demo was pretty good, even though the production quality wasn’t.
Devouring The Excavated contains 9 songs and the 4 songs from the demo are on there as well. The first thing to notice is the big improvement of the production. Where the demo sounded flat and hollow, the full-length sounds strong and loud. The full-length is better in every way. Burial Desecration is the opening song of the album. The first part sounds like Cephalotripsy but Fumes Of Decay has much more complicated riffs to offer. And they don’t slow down, while Cephalotripsy is loaded with slow breakdowns. The more complicated riffs remind me of the American Disgorge, just like the vocals. I think Disgorge is the best comparison when you look at the big picture. My favourite songs are probably the opening song and the title track, but there is no weak song on the entire album.
I think Devouring The Excavated is a very good album. I recommend it for fans of bands like the American Disgorge. Good brutal death metal from The Netherlands.
