Review: Infestation – Social Cannibalism

a1658264677_16

Infestation is a slamming brutal death metal band from Vilnius, Lithuania, having released their album “Social Cannibalism” in February this year. Of all the slam bands I have listened to, I have learned that a slamming brutal death album done right is a hypnotizing experience for the listener. It’s not about following a genre, or deciding which songs stand out the most, it is purely a question of whether the wave length of the whole album matches the listener, and if it does, it is very difficult to listen to one song without listening to the whole album. As a result, it is common for a listener to revisit an album from beginning to end twenty or thirty times in a year alone. The Social Cannibalism album does not just meet the demand, it raises the Slam bar.

Take a step back in time, to the turning point where thrash metal had slowly evolved into death metal, celebrating a tradition composed of a formidable blend of tasty guitar riffs and a punk beat to keep the heads banging. Icelandic four-piece Narthraal is an old-school death metal band, currently signed to Inverse Records. Having already released two Eps, they will be releasing “Screaming From The Grave” on the 26th of May.

Review: Dark Matter Secret – Perfect World Creation

Dark Matter Secret is an instrumental three piece that will be releasing their album ‘Perfect World Creation’ on 2nd of June. Now, the term instrumental metal feels like just a bit of an understatement with this band, because yes, there are no vocals, but we cannot stress enough as to just how monstrously technical these guys are. Though they are aimed at fans of technical death metal bands such as The Faceless, Obscura, and Necrophagist, they make those band’s songs sound easy when you go back to them. In general, tech bands serve listeners on a ‘take it or leave it’ basis, and regardless of the opinion one may have of this genre, it is important that listeners speak of the band’s musicianship and playing abilities either in a respectful manner, or not at all.

Cover-FINAL-e1482080660884

Hailing from Greece, melodic death metallers Kin Beneath Chorus will be releasing their new album ‘Invia’ on the 12th of May. Having listened to Septic Flesh and Rotting Christ for many years, I was very keen to hear what other bands Greece had to offer, and am pleased to say that Kin Beneath Chorus have the potential to be a breath of fresh air to what currently passes for melodic death metal.
