Frothing up from the underground is Gravewards and dragging along with them is their brand new slab of death titled Subconscious Lobotomy. This release is four tracks long but don’t let the amount of songs on this demo fool you as it packs quite a bit of content within just four songs. Each track reaches above four minutes in length providing you with a substantial run time and providing Gravewards enough time to shred your face clean off and tear the flesh from your bones. Gravewards begins their new demo with Casket Entrapment, a ripping and deadly track that barrels straight out of your speakers aimed directly at your throat. From then on, Gravewards adds to the death toll as they roll out diseased and fetid track after diseased and fetid track.
Even though there are only four tracks within this release, Gravewards doesn’t skip out on quality and content. Each track on this demo is just as barbaric, deadly and blood draining as you would like them to be. These four songs aren’t your typical brain bashing blitzkrieg either as Gravewards supplies you with a more mid tempo, technical stomping. Once you press play Gravewards shovels fetid rotting death upon you in heaps until you are completely submerged in utter filth, just the way it should be.
Subconscious Lobotomy is riddled with neck slashing riffs, solid drumming, rumbling bass work and vocals that are hellish and as blood thirsty as they get. Each track is tight and well executed providing you with nothing but brutalizing, technical and completely sinister death metal. There isn’t a track on Subconscious Lobotomy that is lacking in any way from great musicianship, to the raw production and everything else in between gifting you with four tracks of pure slaughtering death metal.
This is an impressive demo from these death dealers and it will be exciting to see what they have to offer next when new music is available. But, until then we are left with four unforgiving, unrelenting, fetid and rotting tracks to bash your brains in to.
