No Truth Found


I liked Carnivored's debut album Revival, but I love their latest album, No Truth Found, even more. The production is pristine. The drummer is a rampaging beast. The growls are devilish and commanding. The guitars sound like Nile and Hour of Penance. This album is a wonderfully invigorating experience.

Profanatik


I fucking love DeadSquad's latest album Profanatik. The drums assault us with a torrent of blast beats, the screams are angry and invigorating, and the guitars will ravage your ear drums with a massive amount of diabolical shredding and crushing slam riffs.

In Praise of Devastation


In Praise of Devastation is the latest album from Funeral Inception. If you ask me, this is their best album to date. The drums play extremely violent blast beats that remind me of Hour of Penance, the growls sound like Nile, and the guitars are amazingly technical.

H.A.T.E.


H.A.T.E. is the second album from Funeral Inception. This time they play in the vein of Souls to Deny-era Suffocation. The drums are a constant blast beat assault, the vocals consist of a bellowing growl that sounds like a cross between Suffocation and Nile, and the guitar work is a lot more technical than it was on the debut.

Anthems Of Disenchantment


This is the debut album from Funeral Inception. It features Brutal Death Metal in the vein of Pierced From Within-era Suffocation. The drums play constant blast beats as well as a few intricate rolls and fills, the vocals sound like Chris Barnes back when he used to not suck, and the guitars are an unrelenting storm of whirling and winding riffs.

Lake of Solace


And now I bring you Deep Mountains from China. I loved their first EP and I love their full-length debut Lake of Solace even more. It's a fantastic blend of Atmospheric Black Metal and Post Rock. The drums play a lot of simple and peaceful rhythms, the vocals consist of both wicked rasps and wondrous clean vocals, and the guitars sound warm and enveloping. Sometimes you get bored of listening to the most brutal music in existence. Sometimes you just wanna sit back and listen to something peaceful. This album is a perfect fit for those moments.

Throne of Existential Abandonment


I'm familiar with the vocalist of Abhorrent Castigation. He's a cool dude and his band makes cool music. They play Brutal Death Metal in the vein of Cenotaph. The drums constantly blast with absolute fury. The growls are deep and monstrous. As for the guitars, they're fucking killer. If you love brutal shit, then you're bound to love this.

The Light Shall Die


Yeah, I took a month long vacation. I think I did that last year too. But now I'm back and I bring you more great stuff. This is the latest release from Cursed Altar, and it's quite possibly the darkest material he's ever recorded. The production is extremely distorted and it sounds abrasive and uninviting. The drums play a mix of plodding rhythms and furious blast beats. The vocals are filled with hatred and contempt. The guitars play both creeping riffs and shredding assaults. Although this EP is a mere six minutes long, it will tear apart your soul.

WHY WON'T IT DIE?


God I love that album title. This is a short EP from the Australian Goregrind band Meatal Ulcer. They essentially pay homage to Last Days of Humanity. The drums sound like a jackhammer, the pitch-shifted growls are grotesque and vile, and the guitars play a whirlwind of crunchy grinding riffs. It's short but it's sweet.

Final Histopathology Report


Turns out, I made a mistake. That guy who raged in the comments section of my Th*nt*f*x*th review wasn't the owner of the record label that released the album. It was a stupid asshole who ended up making the label look bad through his antics. I apologize for jumping to conclusions there. Now let's forget about that stupid shit and listen to some Goregrind. Active Stenosis hail from Greece, and the stuff the band has made here is just excellent. The drum machine sounds convincingly real, the pitch-shifted gurgles sound like a backed-up sink, and the simple riffs utterly grind your face off.

Reupload Monday: Bloody Days on the Altar


So over the weekend, I shared a digital copy of Th*nt*f*x*th's new album with an Indonesian friend of mine and the owner of the label got super mad at me. In fact, a bunch of people got mad at me, but I'm just sitting here laughing my fucking ass off. You can read more about it here. Now that we got that out of the way, I decided to reupload one of my all-time favorite Raw Black Metal albums for today. This is Bloody Days on the Altar by Cruor Cultum. This is so far the only album they've ever released, but it's awesome. The production sounds like a razor storm, the drums sound like a jackhammer, the guitars are fierce but also rather melodic on occasion, and the vocals sound like Abbath except, you know, good.

Human Dark Side






Dajjal is one of Indonesia's oldest Brutal Death Metal bands. They formed in 1994, and twenty years later, they released what is easily one of the finest albums in that country's scene: Human Dark Side. The drums let loose a constant torrent of blast beats and double bass. The vocals consist of a hateful bellowing growl. The guitars constantly bombard you with a dark storm of shredding riffs. This is an amazing album and everyone should listen to it.
