Limbsplitter: Chloroform Cocktail

November 15, 2017


Limbsplitter has been around since 2011 having released a demo in 2013 and now four years later they release their first full length record titled Chloroform Cocktail. Limbsplitter of course revels in gore, the sick and the twisted as well as the nauseating, and with Chloroform Cocktail they bring all of that and more to the operating table. This release is shocking, disgusting and purely putrid and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Through eight tracks, Limbsplitter provides you with nothing but skull bursting and bowel boiling brutal death metal for you to revel in and snap your neck to.

After a brief monologue about a guy screwing a girl until she nearly dies, Limbsplitter gets right in to the thick of things as they blast away with machine gun drumming, slashing riffs and throat shredding vocals. The pace and the tone that they set with the first track holds up throughout the rest of the record. After the monologue at the beginning of the first track Bound for Defilement, Limbsplitter holds a brain bashing and sonic tempo for the rest of the record never letting up for even a minute. Chloroform Cocktail is a suffocating release that hardly gives you any time at all to catch your breath as they move from one track to the next providing you with entrail ripping tunes after entrail ripping tunes.

From the very beginning Limbsplitter mashes the pedal through the floor and the buzzsaw through your skull. They seem to take a nonsensical approach to their music as they come at you knives branded paired with plenty of acid to dissolve anyone they need to. Chloroform Cocktail is an emulsifying and brain mashing listen, one that hits you hard and repeatedly hits you with a lead pipe until you are no more. Each track is an oppressive and ghastly listen that bulldozes straight through you leaving you to the vermin.

The musicianship on this release is tight and technical and the vocals are spot on as they rip and tear at your ear drums just as much as the blasting drums and ripping riffs do. With the combination of some elements of grind and certain elements of thrash, you are gifted with one chaotic and life threatening listen that you will not soon forget. Chloroform Cocktail is an unrelenting, gruesome and flesh gnashing release that grabs your attention immediately and keeps it all throughout this hellacious record. There doesn’t seem to be a way to listen to this record and come out of it in one piece as Limbsplitter hack away at your flesh and chip away at your bones from beginning to end.

This is an intense listen to say the least, but an enjoyable one nonetheless. From front to back you are provided with some delicious death metal to crank your neck to and piss your neighbors off with. Chloroform Cocktail is an all around solid and well constructed record that is sure to get right under your skin and imprint itself in your mind for quite some time.




Gutslit: Amputheater

November 14, 2017



It has been a solid four years since Gutslit’s last release Skewered in the Sewer and now these twisted bastards offer up a brand new slab of bone crushing death metal titled Amputheatre. Amputheatre is a complete step up from Skewered in the Sewer as Gutslit have honed their craft all together to create something even more cohesive, well constructed and completely brain bashing. This new record is a blistering assault from front to back never giving you enough time to take a breath and accept your untimely death. Gutslit move from track to track never losing momentum as they do so. Each track is just as savage and ear drum shredding as the ones that came before it and before you know it your brain is boiling and your bones have been reduced to dust.

After the brief intro Amputheatre, Gutslit mashes the proverbial pedal through the floor as they play neck breaking track after neck breaking track never stopping as your cries of mercy fall on their deaf ears. Each of the eight tracks that come after the intro are technical and bludgeoning slabs of rotten death metal that aim to make you a part of Gutslit’s ever growing horde of cadavers. Gutslit seem to have left everything on the table with this new record as they don’t pull punches or fill time with fillers and fluff as they only gift you with nothing but life threatening death metal.

Gutslit’s combination of both grind and brutal death metal makes for one frenzied and blood curdling listen. As technical and precise as these tracks are, they are just as chaotic. From the start of each song Gutslit will have you banging your head until your brain ends up leaking out of your ears. Each track is undeniable in technicality and brutality and before you know it your head is split wide open. Gutslit barrels through these tracks with no remorse and no second thought as to how much carnage they have spread. Once Gutslit takes off they don’t stop the terror as they roll effortlessly from track to track providing you with nothing short of a bombastic and thundering listen.

Amputheatre hits you so hard and so quick that it leaves you utterly exposed caught in right in the line of fire. With frenzied riffs that are paired with drums that act as a fully automatic assault riffle, you come under siege from the very first couple of minutes on. At the end of the listen Gutslit leaves you bloodied, bruised and incredibly helpless. Amputheatre is a twisting mass of death, carnage and destruction and at the end of the record you want to put yourself through it all over again. This is an addicting listen, one that is well worth the unholy punishment.

Amputheatre is a face shredding, skull grinding and emaciating release that leaves you in a state of complete despair. This is a demented and incredibly heavy record that you have a hard time tearing yourself away from. Amputheatre is a great follow up to “Skewered in the Sewer” as Gutslit shows how far they have progressed and how they really have honed their craft to create such a fiendish and blood boiling record. Overall, Amputheatre is one hell of a death metal record.

Devangelic: Phlegethon

November 13, 2017

Devangelic - Phlegethon 5x5 300dpi800.jpg

For not having been around for entirely too long, Devangelic has certainly made a name for themselves in the brutal death metal community and rightfully so. 2014 saw the coming of their acclaimed debut full length Resurrection Denied, and now three years later Devangelic graces us with yet another brutal death work of art. Phlegethon is the title of this new release and within this album you will find ten tracks of brutalizing, mutilating and purely unholy brutal death metal. Once you press play on this monstrous record the flood gates open and you are presented with nothing but unrelenting and unapologetic death metal that gnashes at your flesh and tears at your very existence.

Once Phlegethon begins it keeps on rolling spreading devastating and death for ten straight tracks. There is no filler or fluff within this record and never for a second does Devangelic let up as they keep their already caked in blood knife on your throat for the entirety of the listen. From track one to track ten you are gifted with pulverizing brutal death metal that aims to expunge you from the face of this earth no matter what. Phlegethon is a record that embodies pure savagery and blood lust and you may be lucky to escape with only a few limbs missing.

Devangelic takes what they did well on Resurrection Denied and make those elements even better on Phlegethon creating an even darker, even more twisted and insane listen. Phlegethon is also an intricate work of brutal death metal, and even with it being a more intricate work it doesn’t detract from the ultimate brutality that Devangelic is known for. Phlegethon is a slab of punishing and dehumanizing death metal that rumbles on from start to finish laying waste to everyone that dares come across it. Each track is sickening, twisted, dark and undeniably heavy gifting you with one hell of an entertaining listen.

Through and through Phlegethon impresses as it certainly is one of the better brutal death metal albums that has been released this year. This record is an undeniable slaughtering machine that wants nothing more than to shed blood and pile up the bodies. This release offers just about everything that a brutal death record should offer and then some. With Phlegethon, Devangelic has upped the ante providing you with something that is better than their last release as well as a release that is-as mentioned-one of the better brutal death metal releases this year.

Phlegethon is a cohesive barrage of destruction and death. Each track rolls nicely in to the next never really giving you time to catch your breath before the next onslaught comes barreling through your speakers. The only reprieve that you are allowed is when the seventh track Wretched Incantations appears, but even then it sets a dismal tone for the rest of the record. This release is a gore filled madhouse that you just can’t get enough of. Phlegethon is an addicting slab of brutal death that you just can’t seem to get out of your head once you have listened.
