Coffin Rot: S/T Demo

March 31, 2018

Image result for coffin rot band

Bursting through their caskets and soon after, your chest, Coffin Rot supply gritty, grime, gore and bile filled offerings that are wonderfully bloodied and rotten. There are four tracks to the self titled release from these Oregonian monsters that are riddled with disease and entrails soaked death that lacerate and mutilate from beginning to end. No frills, no filler, no unwanted anything can be found within this release as you get an unhealthy dose of nothing but putrid stagnant death. Coffin Rot certainly doesn’t wait around too long for you to get comfortable in your tomb as they barrel straight out of your speakers with the opener Incubation of Madness, and from then on you are at their malicious mercy.

From Incubation of Madness on you are greeted with the three remaining tracks that are just as putrid and corpse defiling. Each of the four tracks within this demo have an irresistibly rotten sound. From beginning to end each of the four tracks pour through your speakers like blood spilling over an operating table. The overall sound of this offering is that of the ancient as this demo sounds as though it has been festering for twenty plus years only to grace our gnarled and chewed up ear drums now.

Coffin Rot rip, gnash and shred through your flesh from beginning to end with an unrelenting onslaught of pure death. These gore filled tracks are just as addicting as they are entrails ripping as they lacerate your flesh and pulverize you in to an early grave. Each track is potent as they blast forth ceaselessly to provide you with an ever wicked and vile listen. These perverse offerings of death are very well done and very well executed as Coffin Rot supplies you with some very sinister yet memorable tunes to sever your head from your neck to.

After the drop of the first note Coffin Rot charge forth with malevolence and murderous intent never looking back at who they have claimed as their next victim. This entire demo is done very well as you are greeted with four excellent death metal tunes. This is a great step forth for these crypt dwellers as they have put forth a very solid demo here.

a parallel dimension of despair.jpg

Dwelling among the crypts of the long forgotten, remaining rotten and putrid, Cardiac Arrest have awakened to usher forth their sixth full length album A Parallel Dimension of Despair. Four years have passed since their last full length And Death Shall Set You Free, and now this year with their new opus of glorious death they return seemingly more fiendish and hungry for blood. Eleven tracks of suffocating and rotting death can be heard within A Parallel Dimension of Despair, and really through each track that is exactly what you get, rotting death. No filler, no unnecessary fluff, just pure unrelenting blood curdling death.

With great murderous intent, Cardiac Arrest don’t wait around too long before getting you completely submerged in their vile and twisted brand of death. These corpse hoarders storm through your speakers first with their opener Immoral and Absurd cracking your skull to expose your brain early on only to chip away even more with the remaining ten tracks. Each offering on this release is a blasting yet groove filled onslaught aiming only to shed your blood and mangle you beyond identification. A Parallel Dimension of Despair is an ever pressing, ever charging and malicious record that guts and dismembers you incredibly effectively throughout its run time.

This gruesome aural assault is grimy, blood drenched and malicious as it supplies you with sickening death in heaping proportions. From beginning to end Cardiac Arrest bury you under scornful entrails ripping death that charges forth never having a second thought about who has been slaughtered and who the next victim is. Each of the eleven mutilating tracks within A Parallel Dimension of Despair is skull grinding, chaotic and pulverizing leaving you bloodied and picked apart by the end of it all.

A Parallel Dimension of Despair is a morbid and vile release that is wonderfully crafted and very addicting to listen to. Cardiac Arrest churns out track after track of sickening and perverse death that is hard to get out of your head once you have listened. In complete spine severing and remorseless fashion, Cardiac Arrest provide you with some top notch death metal that isn’t to be ignored. Each track is a wonderful slice of putrid death that you are surely not to forget as each track truly is as memorable as they are detrimental. Overall, A Parallel Dimension of Despair is a great record; one that is monstrous, memorable, entertaining and incredibly addicting.

A Parallel Dimension of Despair will be released April 23, 2018 through Memento Mori.

Piercing through the Netherworld with unrivaled intensity and savagery, Nigredo offers up deliciously wicked and light devouring blackened malignancy. Flesh Torn-Spirit Pierced is the title of the new effort in which you will find track after track that is steeped in madness and bitter darkness. Right from the beginning Nigredo make you feel as uncomfortable as they possibly can as they barrel right out of your speakers and plummet straight in to mind bending and shattering darkness. Once the opener Ten Repellent Antiforces begins, so does the descent in to the abyss as Nigredo plummets further and further in to ever blackening and blistering darkness.

Ever light defeating and ever soul devouring, Flesh Torn-Spirit Pierced rumbles on track to track suffocating you ever so relentlessly as each track rolls along. The eight hellish tracks charge forth with great demonic intensity never really giving you time to recover and take any more than half a breath. With the ending of one track, another immediately begins punishing and pummeling you until you are broken. Each track is a wonderfully crafted barrage of malevolent black metal that aims for your life and continues pressing until you become cold and lifeless.

Flesh Torn-Spirit Pierced is an unholy beast of a record. This twisting, ever blasting and sinister album is an unrelenting piece of soul shredding work. Through and through you will come to witness true blackened power in eight vile and oh so wonderfully crafted tunes. Flesh Torn-Spirit Pierced is a cold ever pressing record that will leave your neck perfectly snapped and your life undoubtedly drained. Flesh Torn-Spirit Pierced is an excellently crafted and perfectly executed record, one that you surely should not miss. For their debut full length, I don’t think it could get any better than this as Nigredo has hit the nail on the head.

This record steeped in demonic essence and turbo charged with pure malevolence is monolithic and something to certainly behold. The execution is perfect from the riffs to the vocals down to the production, this offering is one hell of a record. This perhaps could be one of the top black metal records this year.

Autokrator: Hammer of Heretics

March 24, 2018


Autokrator, a word that is applied to a singular person who displays absolute and unrestrained power. I would have to say that Autokrator is a fitting name for these French death metal heathens as they certainly do display absolute and unrestrained power within their new five track offering Hammer of Heretics. Pure vehement savagery and mutilating destruction is what can be found within Hammer of Heretics as Autokrator unleash five brand new devilish and flesh peeling tracks. Only when the interlude comes through your speakers are you gifted with any sort of breathing room, and even then that is being generous.

Hammer of Heretics is an incredibly suffocating release that relinquishes your life from you nearly immediately. Never is there time to rest as Autokrator unleash their furious and malignant brand of death. For four incredibly gruesome tracks you come face to face with an incredibly barbaric, unrelenting and existence erasing sound. From one track to the next Autokrator bury you under an impressive amount of death and disease leaving you to rot next to their already growing pile of corpses and strewn limbs. Hammer of Heretics is an unearthly and inhuman record, one that aims to pick you clean apart before it has concluded.

Within each track, Autokrator so viciously maim and mutilate with lobotomizing offerings of death that are only to be punctuated by reaping life expunging doom. This entire record is a sonic bloodied madhouse aiming to pulverize and claim your flesh as its own. From the first track Against Flesh and Blood onward you become under siege by a massively oppressive sound that never ceases until you have finally gasped for your last breath of stale air. Hammer of Heretics is an ever twisted and dark record that leaves you fraught with thoughts of fear as well as images of death and putrid decay.

Though only containing five tracks, Hammer of Heretics sports a pretty sizable run time giving Autokrator plenty enough time to torture and dehumanize you. This is a monstrous and noxious offering that provides you with sickening death and really nothing but. Each track is wonderfully grim, macabre and morbid making this entire record out to be incredibly deadly and vicious. This is certainly a record to keep an eye out for as it is one impressive offering.

Hammer of Heretics will be released April 10, 2018 through Krucyator Productions
