TripleMurder: Pre-Meditated

Never to be put in a box or pigeon holed, TripleMurder uses their heavy eclectic sound to produce variety and diversity. There is a lot that TripleMurder has to offer within their six track EP titled Pre-Meditated. From groove filled riffs, to heavy break downs, to searing solos, to varied vocals and more, TripleMurder packs this EP to the bursting point. Through six offerings, Pre-Meditated provides a wickedly heavy yet entirely memorable and entertaining listen. The one problem that you will run in to is that this EP is not nearly long enough, but that is a purely selfish complaint. Through the twenty plus minute run time you are treated to cohesive and very solid metal all the way through that will sure please the gnarled ears of death metal, deathcore and fans beyond those genres.

TripleMurder wastes zero time getting you acclimated and acquainted to their cohesive metallic sound as they set in immediately as soon as you press play. There is no intro to warm you up as TripleMurder thrusts you head first into their brand of head caving metal as they feed you chunky riffs that are backed by ripping grit filled vocals that pierce the wall of tumultuous drumming and shredding riffs. The meshing of death metal and deathcore works well here as TripleMurder sew the two heavy genres together to create an overall cohesive, groove filled and technical sound that is hard to deny. Each track is a well written storm of death that comes out swinging aiming to engulf you in all of its fury.

It isn’t just the grooves, or the killer vocals or the solid drum work, but it is also the breakdowns that tie each track together well too. The breakdowns are used sparingly throughout Pre-Meditated making them have more impact on each track. Not only are they used sparingly, but they aren’t your typical chugging, unearthly down tuned break downs either. Each one is neck bending heavy of course, but they seem to have more substance to them and each one is different from the last making each one unique. This all adds to the variety and diversity that TripleMurder utilizes to their immense benefit.

Through and through, Pre-Meditated is a very solid release. One that brings the heavy in droves, but it also is incredibly memorable and entertaining. Each track is just as good as the last and TripleMurder really show off their song writing abilities through each track. The six offerings present here are unique, heavy, varied, well constructed and much more which ultimately creates an incredibly great listening experience. As mentioned above, the only complaint is that this isn’t long enough but that’s just purely selfish.

TripleMurder has created something here with their debut that is flat out great through and through and really nothing else needs to be said other than that.

Pre-Meditated will be released September 20. You can pre-order this EP here and here.

Breaking December: Into The Light

Hailing from Germany comes melodic death metal outfit Breaking December. While taking influences from the metalcore genre as well, Breaking December make their sound their own. Into The Light is the title of their upcoming EP, in which you will find three melodic, well constructed and performed tracks one right after the next. Breaking December has constructed a sound that is entirely memorable and head bang worthy as they treat you to great cleans, memorable choruses and more to provide you with a sound that sticks with you.

Through each track, Breaking December does a good job of incorporating their metalcore influences in to the overall death metal fold. Aggressive, yet melodic seems to be what they are aiming for and they certainly nail that sound right on the head. From the very beginning, as soon as you press play you realize that each of the three tracks will be stuck in your mind for some time. Each track is a well constructed offering that provides you with that aforementioned balance of aggression and melody that gets right underneath your skin.

Breaking December offers up solid musicianship, a clean production and vocals that switch between bloodied growls, mid screams and very good clean sung vocals that will have you belting the lyrics right out with the lead vocalist. The vocals are clear to understand making it easy for you to belt the choruses out along with the band, and you surely will be doing that. Each track is a well put together offering that will manifest itself in your mind for some time to come. Try as you might, you will not be able to shake these tracks.

Heavy, yet melodic and highly memorable, Breaking December have found a good formula for their overall sound. The mixture of death metal and metalcore here is a good one as you are treated to three well constructed offerings that are easy to come back to as you will. Through Into The Light you are provided with a pretty straight forward sound, but one that is well constructed, entertaining and memorable all the same. Overall, this is a solid release.

Into The Light will be released August 8, and you can pre-order this release here.

Through Agony of the Human World, Oakenform offers you six total tracks of crushing, skull bashing deathcore. As mentioned, Oakenform plays a down tempo brand of deathcore only kicking up the tempo when needed. As down tempo as these tracks are, you really can feel the weight of them bearing down upon you, crushing your bones before you know it.

Ever unrelenting in their murky assault, Oakenform bulldozes from one cut to the next burying you under slabs of grisly deathcore.

Forever bearing down on you, these offerings are massive sonic walls of death and destruction as they hammer you down in to the earth six feet.

As down tempo as each track is, the breakdowns that riddle these offerings are that much more heavy and menacing. The already skull caving sound that Oakenform emits becomes that much more deadly and powerful once a breakdown does hit. As a whole, Agony of the Human World is an incredibly heavy and spine breaking release. Through and through you are provided with offerings that aim to mash you to pieces until you are left as nothing more than strewn viscera.

Agony of the Human World is a very solid and well constructed debut offering from this new deathcore machine. The musicianship is tight and crushing, the vocals are menacing and hellish and the overall production is clean and tight as well. This is a stomping and unrelenting release that marches forth with six foundation shaking tracks that get you bruising your brain in no time at all. Agony of the Human World is a great release that will surely delight deathcore fans all over.

Agony of the Human World is out now!

Zeolite: Sermones Mortis

Zeolite.png

There must be something in the mid strength beer in Australia as it has become a breeding ground for heavy metal acts over the last however many years. That being said, Zeolite is a deathcore/technical death metal crossover band that hails from Melbourne, Australia. Sermones Mortis is their sophomore EP which contains five brand new tracks of incredibly punishing, brain rattling and bone shattering death metal. Zeolite kicks their explosive EP off with Malignant, which leads you in with a bit of an ominous intro  before kicking your teeth straight down your throat. Once the intro has concluded, Zeolite bring the blood spurting pain with blasting drumming, and disgustingly jarring riffs.

From Malignant on, you are treated to four more tracks of nothing but neck breaking brutality. There are no punches pulled within this offering and there certainly isn’t any fluff to be found as Zeolite rolls out track after track of deadly skull shattering death metal. Even when the third track Reticent appears-which is a straight forward instrumental-you aren’t given a breather what so ever. Each track on this release does its best job to make you feel as though your life is ending and at the end of the listen Sermones Mortis makes you feel as though you have taken a baseball bat to the face repeatedly.

Sermones Mortis is a punishing onslaught of nothing but metallic pain and fury. This five track offering is unrelenting and unforgiving as it provides you with nothing but violent and cutting tracks for you to turn your brain in to mush to. This EP is a bulldozer of death as it culls the weak and tramples the deceased. From beginning to end you are under siege by this sonic death machine. You are granted zero breaks or reprieve from the utter onslaught, and in only five tracks Zeolite puts you through the wringer only to throw you out like a useless corpse at the end of it all.

Once you press play, there is nothing that you can do other than sit back and let Zeolite smash your face to pieces. This is a harsh, jagged, technical and down right heavy piece of work and an overall great sophomore effort from these Aussies.

The Senate: Tales From A Galaxy Far, Far Away

November 4, 2017

In a galaxy far, far away, two guys decided to pair Star Wars with deathcore to create The Senate and ultimately provide you with galaxy shattering tunes in the form of a full length titled Tales From A Galaxy Far, Far Away. This brand new record contains eight tracks of spine breaking deathcore for you to bruise your brains and crank your necks to. Through and through, Tales From A Galaxy Far, Far Away is an entirely entertaining and enjoyable listen whether you are a fan of Star Wars or not.

Through eight tracks you are gifted with face peeling tunes that blast and chip away at your skull until the final note has sounded off. From the very first track on, The Senate blasts off at light speed providing you with some sickeningly heavy and bone crushing tunes. This onslaught doesn’t last for too long however as this record is pretty short in length, but what it lacks in longevity it more than makes up for in entertainment and quality. Each track on this record is well done as The Senate provides you with a cohesive and unrelenting cosmic pummeling.

Tales From A Galaxy Far, Far Away is down tuned deathcore madness done oh so well. This wall of pure maniacal slaughtering is incredibly heavy. The Senate hardly gives you time to prepare for an utterly bone splintering listen as they nearly immediately bury you under droves of blast beats and menacingly heavy riffs. The breakdowns that they incorporate in each track just about bury you under the earth and really give you no other option other than to head bang until your neck completely snaps. The vocals that shear their way through the wall of sonic madness are rabid and blood thirsty as they switch between throat shredding gutturals and just as grisly and gritty screams as well as the occasional pig squeal.

Tales From A Galaxy Far, Far Away is a completely unrelenting and unapologetic listen. Each track is just as heavy and deadly as the ones that came before it and for eight straight songs you are pummeled within an inch of your life. The marriage between Star Wars and deathcore is a good one here and it really does seem as though these guys are having nothing but fun with this and that just makes this release that much more enjoyable to listen to.

This is a solid listen for just deathcore fans as well as fans of both deathcore and Star Wars. If you are looking for some brutalizing tunes that are just purely entertaining to listen to, Tales From A Galaxy Far, Far Away certainly is the record for you.
