Hailing from Argentina comes ripping death squad Draconis with their upcoming full length offering titled Anthems For An Eternal Battle. Having come on to the scene in 2003, Draconis has treated us all to two EPs and with this release four full length records since then. Continuously aggressive and unrelenting for the entirety of their seventeen year career, they show no signs of slowing down with this release. With ten total tracks to its name, Anthems For An Eternal Battle is a destructive force from beginning to end. Uncompromising and neck snapping all the way through, this record treats you to a raw, dissonant, technical and face melting sound that ultimately will be your demise.
Draconis gives no thought what so ever about starting their record with an intro as they immediately begin their onslaught from the very second you lift your finger from the play button. With riffs that fly out from every direction that are only to be paired with tumultuous drum work and screamed vocals that are akin to that of a banshee, Draconis make their presence felt all throughout. Each track is a pure and aggressive onslaught of death from the first second to the last. With no reprieve you become buried underneath a relentless slew of flesh melting riffs and spine rattling drum work in no time.
Fast, wicked and undeniably head bang worthy, each track works their way under your skin and gets you mashing your brain against your skull in record time. Throughout this release, Draconis is unpredictable at times as they shift and shape their overall sound to how they see fit but they never waver from the overall shredding, intensely aggressive tone they create. Forever switching between structure and down right neck breaking maelstroms, each of the ten tracks within Anthems For An Eternal Battle is whiplash inducing to say the least.
This Argentinian death machine has created a very solid and well rounded effort here with Anthems For An Eternal Battle. Each track is just as good as the last and just as heavy and blood boiling as well. If you are looking for something raw, aggressive, punishing and purely face melting, you don’t have to look a whole lot further than Anthems For An Eternal Battle.
