Slow Death – Hate Filled World

cover_1496409099658930

Slow Death is a four piece band from the United States. Their debut album ”Hate Filled World” was released in June through Corpse Flower Records. Recorded back in August of 2016 at Dead Air Studios, this album includes eight songs. So let us waste no more time. Let’s press play. First song is called ”Daggers of Hate”. When i listened to this song for the first time i was like ”o.k gentlemen you now have my full attention”. This is a cool song no doubt. Nasty hardcore punk mixed with  noise rock. And i can tell you that the rest of the album’s songs didn’t let me down at all. I’m talking about songs like ”Suicide Man”. This is one of my favourite songs from this album. You’ll even find some blastbeasts in this song. I also liked ”Midnight Black” a lot. Put this song in your current playlist. Put ”Blade Runs Red” as well. Last but not least we find ”Three On A Meathook”. Lyrically the band gets a lot of inspiration from old horror movies, something that will become clear to you if you check out the titles and of course the lyrics of their songs. But that makes the album sound even darker and in my opinion heavier. Overall i’d like to say that i enjoyed this album. And, yes, i would definitely like to recommend it.

No Funeral/ Livid – Split

No Funeral and Livid are two bands from the United States. Their split album will be released on the 15th of August through Live Fast Die Recordings. Three tracks are will be included in this release. No Funeral contribute with two tracks and Livid with one. The first two tracks come from No Funeral. This is vicious, brutal sludge that finally found its way to my soundsystem. ”Infection” and ”Disease Brought By Depression” are of course heavy as hell. Pulverising riffs along with concrete basslines and agonizing vocals will accompany you in a journey through murky and dystopic soundscapes. Now Livid is a different story. Their style of music is more closer to doom than sludge. They kinda reminded me of old Paradise Lost . Their track is called ”False Hope”. I can’t say i loved it but i didn’t hate it as well. You can certainly trace some nice riffs. Nevertheless i’ve heard stuff like that many times in the past. As it has already been mentioned this split will see release on the 15th of August. Here’s a link where you can also give it a listen. Have you already heard this album? What did you think? Feel free to leave a comment in the comment section.

Converge – I Can Tell You About Pain

I can tell you that Converge rules. I’ve been waiting for some time now for a new Converge release. Finally that time has come. Their new ep ”I Can Tell You About Pain”, which was released on the 25th of July, includes two songs. Yes people, only two new songs. Excitement took over me when i caught wind of those teasers. Nevertheless i kept asking myself ” Why only two songs?”. Anyway, the only thing that i had to do was just listen to these songs. Thus i did. First song is called ”I Can Tell You About Pain” and it is another great song by Converge. I simply can get enough of this song. Second song is called ”Eve”. This one is beyond great. There are not enough words to describe how awesome this song is. If you haven’t done already then you should definitely check out this one because this is Converge at their best. At least that’s what i think. I don’t know how they do it but they’ve done again. And this is only two songs we’ re talking about. Here’s a link where you can have a taste.

Vatican – Ache of Eternity

Vatican is a five piece, hardcore band from the United States. Their new ep ”Ache of Eternity” will be released on the 25th of August through Sorrow Carrier Records. Five tracks are included in this release. It starts with ”Divine Ruination”. It’s a nice track no doubt. It kinda reminded me of bands like Caliban and Heaven Shall Burn. ”Boundless Image” is another nice track from this ep but to be honest i’ve heard stuff like that again in the past. ”Dreamer’s Bodybag” is a song that i personally liked a lot. I’m always down with tunes like these. ”Slit of Creation” is probably the best track among the five tracks that are included in this ep. It is seriously heavy and it has a great groove and cool beatdown parts. You need to check out ”Innocence Grows Obsolete” as well. I had never heard of Vatican before in the past but i will admit i enjoyed this ep. As it has already been mentioned ”Ache of Eternity” comes out on August 25. Until then check out this link.

Doperider – Demo

a1107675300_10

Doperider is a three piece, doom metal band from New Jersey. Their demo, which was written and recorded by the band itself, was released back in 2015. Two tracks are included in this demo. First track is called ”Drugged Up Demonoid” and it is trully an awesome track. It is a beast of a song. In my opinion it is composed of three parts. And the truth is that each part kills. Second song is called ”Fractal Resin”. I loved this song as well. It is of course heavy as hell and a bit trippy at the same time. What i like about this band is that they took the best out of three styles, namely doom, sludge and stoner metal and they created this demo of theirs that can’t go unnoticed. Personally i liked this demo a lot therefore i would like to recommend it. I would also love to listen to a full length album from this band. Here’s a link where you can have a first taste of Doperider.

Noothgrush/ Corrupted – Split

Hey everybody, how’s it going? It’s time for a new review. Today we review a split album that was released  twenty years ago and will be re-released on August 25 through 20 Buck Spin. Noothgrush and Corrupted need no big introduction. I think we’re talking about two huge bands. Perhaps they never received the credit they deserved. But let’s get back to the album. The album has been remastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege and the new artwork was made by Hal Rotter of Rotting Graphics. I’d like to say that i really dig the new artwork. Three tracks are included in this release. The first two tracks belong to Noothgrush and the third one to Corrupted. Noothgrush’s two tracks are of course insanely heavy. I don’t think there is any doubt about that. Filled with anger, hate and despair these two sludge monoliths are gonna haunt your playlist for a very long time. ”Inactive” by Corrupted is like a fourteen minute torment that’s impossible to escape from. Even if you have never heard of this band before you should definitely check out this song of theirs. I’ve said it before and i’m gonna say it again. I really like split albums. I also enjoyed this one therefore i would like to recommend it. Here’s a link where you can have a first taste.

Hands of Thieves – Feasting on Dark Intentions

Hands of Thieves is a five piece band from the United States. Their first ep ”Feasting on Dark Intentions” was released digitally about a year ago. On July 7, 2017 it was released on digipack cd format through Hellthrasher Productions. Four tracks are included in this release. The band’s music is a combination of black metal, grindcore and some sludge. It is of course seriously aggressive and brutal. It began with ”Wrath Weaver”. A fearsome beast roared in the dark. ”Violated at Heart” gave me the chills. In my opinion you should definitely check out this one. ”Sun Mocker” has some really cold black metal riffs. This is one massive and heavy as hell song. Last but not least we find ”Conduit of Grief”. Listening to this song one word came to mind and that is ‘epicness’. I loved it and i’d like to urge all of you to give it a listen. Overall, this ep is worth checking out. I personally enjoyed it thus i’d like to recommend it. They made a fan out of me and i’m sure the same will happen with you. Check out this link.
