Mære: I

Obscure and at times haunting and spine chilling yet overall anvil heavy comes Mære from Germany with their six track EP simply titled I. Old-school in essence, Mære add their own twists and oddities to the punishing and deadly genre to come up with a truly complex and ever shape shifting sound. Never do you hear the same sounds more than once from Mære as their sound constantly shifts and morphs to how they see fit. Forever morphing and evolving with each passing second, each of the six tracks here lead you down winding, dissonant and ever daunting passages of death.

Though there are only six offerings attached to I, this EP more than makes up for the lack of quantity with quality as each cut here is superb. With as lengthy as each offering is as they clock in at over four and five minutes-save for the intro-you are treated to a true labyrinth of death metal noise. Never sticking to one sound or idea, Mære constantly shift and morph their sound, guiding you down one deadly passage after the next. Each track is just as unique, obscure and menacing as the last as Mære provides you with something that is simply intriguing and all together a different kind of heavy.

Forever devouring and engulfing, I wraps you in its pulsating and bitter darkness from which you cannot and will not see the light. As mentioned above, each track is haunting and all around spine chilling at times as the overall atmosphere of the EP itself is something all together to behold. Dissonant, darkened and all enveloping, I presses forth consuming you with the passing of each second as it loses you within the infinite folds and labyrinth like wrinkles of death. I isn’t a punishing release like a Cannibal Corpse record would be, but it is punishing in a different sense that is all its own.

From the instrumentation, to the monstrous vocals to the bitter and dark atmosphere to the unique shifts in tempo to everything in between, I certainly pushes the envelope. I is one of the more unique and intriguing death metal releases that I have heard, and changing the formula isn’t always something that works out in the favor of the band, but it certainly does here for Mære. Through and through, this six track EP is something to behold and gives you a little taste of what is hopefully to come from these death merchants.

From the very first note that gets shot straight out of your speakers you quickly realize that each offering aims to trample, lay waste and destroy anyone and everything in its path. In true grinding fashion, each track is pretty short, but for what they lack in length they more than make up for in content. Each offering is a blistering assault of metal that gets your head violently banging back and forth until your neck finally gives and your head is found rolling on the floor. With one brutal assault after the next you are left with no room to breathe or take a breath as when one track ends the next immediately picks up right after it.

Every single second of Summoning The Hounds is an entertaining one as each track is a superb offering of pure, unfiltered deathgrind. Not a single track of the ten that are present here weak in any fashion nor do they lack in any single area as each one is just as good, heavy and head bangingly good as the last. The only thing that you wish for once the final note has rang through is that there were more than ten offerings throughout the release. With that said, that leads you to numerous listens until your ear drums just simply call it quits.

Through and through, Summoning The Hounds is a great release, one that provides you everything that you would want from a deathgrind record. Verano’s Dogs hit the nail on the head with this release as they offer up ten excellent tracks one right after the next with each one getting you bang your head until your brain fatally bruises.

Never to cease, Arcane Haze ladles a true tormenting onslaught of unrepentant death upon you until you are finally buried and suffocating underneath it all.

Colosso: Apocalypse

After forming in 2011, Portuguese death metal stalwarts Colosso have been working themselves to the bitter bone providing you with nothing but menacing and down right slaughtering death metal. With one demo, four full length releases and two EP’s, Colosso ushers forth their new era of destruction and mayhem with a brand new upcoming EP appropriately titled Apocalypse. This EP features four tracks that are as bludgeoning and skull destroying as you would come to expect from these corpse hoarders. Monstrous and lobotomizing, Colosso presents you with a sound that is utterly spine severing and brain mashing. However, as destructive as Apocalypse is, it is just as diverse. Apocalypse twists and turns offering up a new deadly sound one track right after the next forever keeping you on your toes as you await the next brutal hammering of death.

Colosso begins their new EP with an eight minute buzzing wall of putrid death titled Pestilence. This track is a slow burning death machine that churns and chugs along, dragging you down slowly through pits of despair and grisly torment. With the sound of flies buzzing behind the pure wall of gutting riffs and chest cracking drum work, you know that the end is nigh for you. Pestilence is a massive track, one that buries you underneath a wall of stagnant death and destruction until you are left as no more than a bitter pile of flesh and crumbled bone.

Following the ever destructive opening track, comes a potent juggernaut titled War. Unlike Pestilence, War is a rapid fire skull smashing death metal offering that aims for your throat from the drop of the first note. With machine gun drum work, riffs that cleave your head clean off your shoulders and vocals that are incredibly monstrous, War treats you to a blitzkrieg of lobotomizing metal. Never does this track cease or relent as it presses onward, trampling over anything and everyone in its path, leaving nothing but wreckage, mayhem and bloodied corpses in its wake. War is a razor sharp unrepentant track that tears you apart leaving you unrecognizable in a pool of your own viscera.

After War’s rampage comes to a close, Death crops up in its wake presenting you with something truly unique and different. Death is the most “subdued” track of the four as you are greeted with cleanly almost angelic vocals. Death is a definite break from the two bone crumbling and flesh flaying offerings that came before it. This track truly shows the diversity of Colosso as they present you with an entirely different sound than that of what you had come to expect by just hearing the first two tracks. Death has a more progressive sound to it which is refreshing and welcoming after experiencing the artery bursting tracks that came before it.

Rounding the EP out comes the fourth member of the apocalypse, Famine. Famine comes at you with yet another different sound that what you have heard through the first three tracks. With that said, this offering is another offering that leaves you bloodied and eviscerated. Famine has a terrifying foreboding atmosphere about it that leaves you with chills and nightmares to come for some time. Forever destructive and tormenting, Famine leaves you cleaved in two once the final note has rang through. Famine is the final nail in your coffin as you are finally dragged asunder to your final resting place.

Overall, Apocalypse is a great EP. It is diverse and refreshing as Colosso offers up something unique within each of the four tracks that they provide for you. Each offering has its own identity and twists making them incredibly memorable. Apocalypse leaves you wanting more and more as Colosso provides you with something here that is a truly great and monolithic EP.

Apocalypse will be unleashed February 14 through Transcending Obscurity Records
