Exsul: Exsul

Appearing from the barren abyss in the year 2018, death metal legion Exsul began brewing something that would finally see the light of day in November of this year. That thing just so happens to be their debut self titled EP that comes complete with four tracks and a lengthy run time of twenty-three total minutes. Through those twenty-three minutes, Exsul instills fear, horror and the unmistakable presence of death within you. Grimy, and unfiltered, this death horde unleashes something entirely unique and damning. Exsul’s sound cannot be mistaken, and their onslaught of pure death cannot be quelled until the toll of the bell signals your ultimate demise.

With their mixture of flesh carving death metal and spine splintering doom, Exsul creates a sound here that is incredibly heavy. In no time you become crushed under the sheer astronomical weight of the sound that Exsul provides. With barbaric blood letting riffs, chest cavity shattering drum work and hellish wraith like vocals, Exsul provides you with a truly damming and life extinguishing listen. Through and through you are treated to a pure and deadly sound that fills you with dread and terror the more that you listen. The nightmare persists for four epic tracks and with no light to be seen the only way to escape is to succumb to the death machine that is Exsul.

Not only are you faced with a devastating sound, but throughout you come shrouded in an atmosphere that is just as deadly and poisonous. Through each of the four offerings you come to greet an overall evil and sinister tone that chills you straight to your bone marrow. This lurking, ever present ambiance weighs on you just as heavy as the gutting instrumentation does. It is a perfect compliment to an already soul harvesting sound and it ultimately ushers you further and further to an abyss of never ending darkness and dread.

As deranged and sinister as this release is, it is equally as captivating. This debut EP is an outstanding release through and through as you are gifted with top notch death metal from track on to track four. Each offering is just as potent and strong as the last making this to be an overall cohesive and fully well rounded EP.

Caligari Records will be helping spread the destruction via CD format on January 7th 2021.

Coffins/Depression: Split

Coffins/Depression: Split

What do you get when you combine two completely legendary death metal bands within one singular split? You get nothing but pure, raw, filthy and dehumanizing death metal and nothing but. Over the years since their respective inceptions, Coffins and Depression have been tearing you and this planet apart ever since they’ve played their first notes. Both bands have an incredibly grizzly, gnarled and bloodied sound that leave you as nothing more than food for the subterranean creatures that dwell beneath the soil. Throughout this split you become subject to nine total tracks of pure death metal putridity. There are no frills here, only bloodied, vein draining death.

The first band to crawl from the crypt and take a deadly stab at you is none other than Japan’s own Coffins. Coffins features only three tracks within this nine track offering, but even so they come at you in full force hacking your skull open before you know it. Each of the three offerings that Coffins provides are as deadly, gnarled and bone gnashing as you would come to expect from these grave defilers. Within these tracks, Coffins foregoes a large portion of their doom aesthetic and focuses in large part on their tried and true death metal onslaught. Each track drips with blood and ferocity as you come under siege from buzzing, flesh slicing riffs, bass work that ejects your spinal fluid from your spine, drum work that cracks your bones and vocals that are entirely otherworldly. Coffins displays why they have had the longevity that they have by providing you with nothing but top notch death metal and nothing but. Each offering cuts deeply and maims beyond recognition as each of the three are complete juggernauts of death from a complete juggernaut of a death metal band in Coffins.

Once Coffins’ section concludes, Depression picks right up to provide you with their own brand of flesh splicing, soul harvesting death metal. The final six tracks of this split belong to Germany’s Depression, and much like Coffins these heathens don’t like frills or gimmicks either. What you get in this second half is a cleaner production than that of Coffins, but a just as gnarled, gross and putrid sound. Honing their deadly craft since 1989, Depression has kept their tried and true traditional death metal sound and within this split they show off just why they are also one of the juggernauts of death metal. Through and through you become submerged in utter disgusting, skin peeling death metal. From the drop of the first note you understand that the grave you are digging isn’t for anyone but yourself. If the Coffins side of the split didn’t maim you enough, this side definitely will as Depression comes for your neck until your head pathetically rolls on the ground. Sinister, barbaric, bloodied and brutal, Depression packs a lot in their six putrid offerings as you get trapped in a maelstrom of stagnant, rotting death. Depression features nothing but pure, festering, blood boiling rotting death that simply does not relent until the final gnarled note flies through your speakers and pierces your frontal lobe.

With both Coffins and Depression being on this split, you just simply cannot go wrong here. These two giants of death metal bring forth some of the most sickening and brutal death metal that you will be able to hear. Through nine tracks you just get treated beyond belief to a smorgasbord of death metal that you do not want to miss.

This split will be unleashed December 30th through Hells Headbangers.

Sacrocurse: Supreme Terror

Emerging from the shadows in 2012, Sacrocurse has been on an earth scorching tear releasing two full lengths, a demo, one split and one EP up until this point. After we turn the bloodied page over to next year you are to get an early surprise by these heathens in the form of Supreme Terror. This EP features only four tracks that total to a run time of a concise seventeen minutes. Supreme Terror lacks a lengthy run time with it being an EP, but it more than makes up for in the sheer blackened brutal content that it provides within its short run time. Joining the heads of black metal and death metal, you come across a sound that is entirely unholy, blasphemous and down right neck breaking.

Supreme Terror is a down right assault nearly from the get go as it assaults you from all angles with razor sharp riffs and blasting drum work that leaves a crater in your chest. With terrifying, menacing vocals that fly through the wall of bloodied noise, Sacrocurse creates a pure maelstrom of madness and wreckage. Sacrocurse dishes out one track after the next each of them played at an incredibly blistering and blood boiling tempo. Never to relent and give you time to breathe, one track swiftly transitions to the next burying you underneath sickening droves of death leaving you gasping for air.

Armed to the teeth with a pure, unfiltered rawness only to combine that with razor sharp and equally raw production, you get a sound that slices and is cutting to the bone. Raucous and caustic, each of the four tracks here are as deadly as the last as they lacerate you from beginning to end leaving you as mere mincemeat. Throughout, you become helplessly trapped within the vortex of blackened death punishment. From second one to the one thousand twentieth second you become Sacrocurse’s subject of mutilation and maim.

Raw, razor sharp, unfiltered, tormenting and as heavy as you would wish, Supreme Terror truly is a terror. Complete within a short time, it certainly feels much longer due to the fact you become ensnared within such barbarity. The temple is open for these shadow dwellers and your time is nigh as Sacrocurse appears once again to wreak havoc and spread destruction with Supreme Terror.

Supreme Terror will be unleashed January 20, 2021 through Shadow Records and Regain Records.

BAXAXAXA: Devoted To HIM

Forming in 1992 in Germany, BAXAXAXA swiftly released a demo titled Hellfire, only to return in 2002 to release a split with Ungod, and then after that, nothing. They receded into darkness where nothing had been heard from them for nearly two decades, up until this point. This year we see the return of Germany’s finest, BAXAXAXA as they unleash the aptly named Devoted To HIM. This ghoulish EP features two tracks of no fucking around, no frills black metal that drags you asunder into an ever reaching darkness from which you cannot crawl out of.

The ghoulish, straight forward soul stealing sound that the two tracks here provide is chilling. BAXAXAXA picks up right where they left off in 1992 sounding as though that is the era that they had been hiding out in up until now. Devoted To HIM is pure, blistering, raw blackened metal and nothing but. This EP offers up two tracks that are soul freezing and hellish and even so you can’t help put to want to listen to it over and over again until you are completely submerged in haunting darkness.

BAXAXAXA seems to have kept the blackened flame that fueled them back in the early nineties lit as they have kept the same intensity and the same ancient black metal values. Like an disappeared, but not forgotten god, BAXAXAXA has come back to grace us with their wicked presence once again and hopefully this time they are here to stay. This is what black metal is about. It is unapologetic, raw, blistering, ancient and down right haunting and chilling and all of that and more is what these black metal behemoths offer up within Devoted To HIM.

Overall, this is a fantastic return into the blackened foray that is the modern day metal and black metal scope. As short as this release is and for what it lacks in length it more than makes up in superb content. Both of the tracks that are present here are wonderfully well written and performed. This is a great return for this black metal cult.

Devoted To HIM is out now through Iron Bonehead Productions.

Wombbath: Tales of Madness

Wombbath needs no introduction whatsoever. These slaughterers from Sweden have been around since 1988, filling graves and leaving nothing in their wake other than diseased deceased scorched earth. These death metal and grave desecrating heathens have been on a tear since their inception releasing four full lengths up until this point, numerous splits and demos as well as a couple of EPs. Tales of Madness however, is a culmination of three re-recorded tracks, the very first Wombbath track written in 1990, a complete remake of Lavatory Suicide Remains, one track that was written before that and two completely brand new offerings. Whether it be re-recorded, a complete remake or entirely new tracks, Wombbath never disappoints as they offer up one track after the next of truly barbaric, savage and entirely vein draining death metal and nothing but.

Any sort of reprieve and any hope of light at the end is never to be seen throughout Tales of Madness as each track is a pure rampage of death and despair. This offering was put together to lower you into an early grave complete with worms awaiting your arrival to feast upon your festering flesh. Wombbath has always put out the most vicious and most devouring brand of death metal and that is all on display front and center all throughout Tales of Madness. Complete and utter destructive Swedish death metal and nothing but is what you come face to face with through each of these eight tracks and they leave you as nothing more than just a hallowed shell of your former self.

Forever barbaric and relentless, Wombbath unleashes an unbridled death metal assault that rips your flesh and chars your remains. When the first note arrives and hits your ear drums, it feels as though you are staring straight in to the face of a behemoth ready to expunge you from this earth. Each of the eight tracks that are present within this release have an incredible weight to them and an insane amount of terrorizing, butchering energy that will leave you faceless. Through and through, Tales of Madness is a complete onslaught of insane butchery. This is pure, rotting, putrid, life degrading death metal that you cannot wait to listen to over and over again.

These Swedish death metal masters create great harmony between traditional Swedish death metal and more of the new age focused death metal. Wombbath just simply never disappoints as they never have for their thirty plus year career. As stated above, once the final note clears through your speakers you feel compelled to press play again and do so over and over again until your ear drums finally burst. Tales of Madness is a great release from a completely legendary, slaughtering death metal band. Truly, death metal doesn’t get a whole lot better than this.
