death metal

Revocation

Metal Blade Records

Before I begin, I feel the need to apologize for the few swear words I'll be using in this review. I'm sincerely sorry if such language offends anybody. However if you speak metalhead, you'll understand entirely what I'm trying to convey besides my lack of a sophisticated lexicon. Now that this is out of the way...

Sounds Like: 
If Megadeth and Black Dahlia Murder had a baby, it went through a punk/hardcore phase, and every single sound of worth from such a genre compressed into a perfect audible diamond.

Kult Mogil
Label: 
Pagan Records

Kult Mogil is from Tarnow, Poland and sounds like a really good mixture of doom metal and death metal. It’s a really interesting album, and honestly isn’t that long. Totally only 40 minutes long, it’s really good for radio. They don’t speak English but it doesn’t matter because the vocals – while minimal – still kick ass. This album honestly was confusing at first because it starts out really heavy and rough like death metal but melts into doom.

Twitching Tongues

Twitching Tongues is back with their third full-length album, entitled Disharmony, and the namesake single is awesome. I always find it more difficult to write a review about singles, but this single was different. The intro to this track is delightfully dark, lead by a slow and ominous piano and orchestral piece, which then throws you right into the rest of the track. It is a great example of deep, dark, and depressing hardcore metal, but only in best of ways. The riffs are powerful and full of the creepy, haunting vibe that drives the track.

Stellar Master Elite
Label: 
Essential Purification Records

This album is an awesome hour-long trip through the horrors of space. The album pulls in a lot of influences from drone and early sci-fi movie synths. Their guitars are super duper heavy, both when they're thumping away on a few of the speedier tracks, and in the long, desolate drawls of other tracks. Stellar Master Elite really shines on their longer songs, though, of which there are quite a few. It's in these gems that they can really break out the 60s -style synths and explore the vast horror of space.

My life is now broken up into two different time periods: Before I listened to this album, and after I listened to this album. The band is from Tianjin, China and they are really brutal. While I've personally never have had to deal with a blood clot ejaculation, I would imagine that the sound and overall vibe of this album really creates an accurate ambience for a situation like t

Krisiun
Label: 
Century Media

"Forged In Fury" is a straight up death metal album by the three piece veteran group "Krisiun". Lead by Alex Camargo on vocals/bass and surrounded by brothers Max and Moyses Kolesne on drums and guitar (respectively), "Krisiun produced this furious and relentless record featuring all forms of hatred and maliciousness. I guess this is why they decided to title the project "Forged In Fury". Just like any other not-messing-around death metal release, this album simply doesn't quit. It is in your face crushing skulls for virtually an hour.

Rivers of Nihil
Label: 
Metal Blade Records

Rivers of Nihil is relatively new on the metal scene, as Monarchy is only their second studio album since they formed in 2009, but they are by no means rookies. This album hits hard and in all the right places, so it makes a lot of sense why Metal Blade would hype this album so much. All death metal should sound like this, or at least similar to this. It is very technical at parts and just plain brutal at others, with nothing hindering the progression of the album. You always want to hear what's coming next and just how they're going to attack next.

One of the most recognizable names in death metal, Cattle Decapitation has returned with their seventh studio album The Anthropocene Extinction. If you've never heard of Cattle Decapitation, it's time to put on your big boy pants and find out what death metal is really all about. Cattle Decapitation are hardcore environmentalists and animal rights activists at heart, and they've combined their beliefs with their incredible ability to create some of the best and most brutal deathgrind in the metal world.

Yes. Just yes. If you've never heard of Six Feet Under, then you cannot call yourself a true metalhead, and if you're not at least a little bit excited about this album, then I'm not sure we can be friends. Formed by the vocalist from the legendary Cannibal Corpse, Chris Barnes, guitarist Allen West of Obituary, former Massacre and Death bassist Terry Butler, and drummer Greg Gall, this band was designed to damn souls and melt faces.
