Hailing from Germany is Morbid Panzer and above is the cover art for their newest EP titled Only The Total Deathwhich sports two songs of blackened fury. Morbid Panzer mix in death metal and thrash with their brand of black metal to create a chaotic and completely shredding sound. With just two songs on this record Morbid Panzer gets your head nodding with their violent brand of blackened metal and not only that but they leave you wanting more music than they provide on this EP.
Morbid Panzer leads you into this EP with a skin crawling intro and as soon as that is over you get your ear holes blasted with dissonant blasphemy and from then on Morbid Panzer don’t let up. After that intro Morbid Panzer kicks into over drive and lets loose and for two straight songs you just can’t help but to headbang into oblivion. Each song is sinister and twisting and in both songs you get a balanced and fair amount of thrash, black metal and death metal. Morbid Panzer does a great job of sewing each genre together to create a cohesive and heavy sound.
Through both songs you get ripping and razor sharp riffs coupled with heavy bass lines and tumultuous drumming. Pushing their way through the sonic assault are the vocals that transition between gravel filled highs to banshee screams that just add to the already abrasive sound. The musicianship is on point and the production is raw and dissonant and with everything sewn together what you get is a heavy and bleak sound. To wrap the EP up nicely, Morbid Panzer adds an outro to the closing song that is just as skin crawling as the intro to the beginning of this EP.
Only The Total Death is a short but good listen that does leave you wanting more. Both songs are face ripping and heavy and if you are a fan of black metal, thrash, or death metal, you can’t go wrong with this EP.
