February 1, 2018

Regurgitating vile, sickening offerings through your speakers one healthy dosing of death grind after another is Cryptivore with their release Unseen Divinity. This unholy offering provides you with seven tracks of nothing but terrorizing and bludgeoning death grind that sheers your face off within minutes leaving you there to rot. Each of the seven tracks on this release are short and of course incredibly aggressive as they come at you in furious waves. Unseen Divinity is a twisted blood soaked listen that holds a blade to your tender throat right from the get go never to let you go until the waves of grinding debauchery have ceased.

From beginning to end, Unseen Divinity is an unrelenting metallic onslaught, and through seven tracks you become caught in the devastating cyclone of vicious metal. Each track is like a battering ram cracking your chest open little by little minute after passing minute. Cryptivore lays the hammer down early, quickly and often throughout this seven track offering. Never once do they let up giving you any sort of reprieve or breather as they reign scalding metal down upon you with malice.

Unseen Divinity comes at you with plenty of blood drenched riffs that pair nicely with the ever present and ever skull blasting drumming. Shoving their way to the forefront of all of the metallic grinding madness are vile guttural growls that seep through the walls of terrorizing death grind. “Unseen Divinity” is a chaotic, ceaseless record that bulldozes over you and any victim that stand in its way without any remorse.

With as brutalizing and face deforming as these seven tracks are, each of them are just as memorable and catchy as well. After listening you will have these tracks bouncing around in your skull for some time to come. Not only are they memorable, but they are addicting to listen to as well as they come at you in short bursts of murderous intent and once you are done listening you feel compelled to press play over again.

As mentioned above, Unseen Divinity is a memorable and catchy record just as much as it is a bludgeoning and flesh tearing one. Each of the seven tracks that are present on this release are as good as the others gifting you with a very solid and very heavy record overall.

The cassette version of this release will be unleashed February 16, 2018 through Blood Harvest.

FilthxCollins/Skinlover: Split

January 22, 2018

If you stop paying attention for just a second the split between FilthxCollins and Skinlover is over. This split is an incredibly fast and chaotic split that gets your brain doing somersaults from the very first second. In typical spine bending grind fashion, FilthxCollins and Skinlover provide you with fourteen total tracks that are chaotic maelstroms of searing skull rattling metal. FilthxCollins kicks the split off with Bacterial Empires which begins is vertebrae damaging fashion. The intensity that FilthxCollins starts this split off with is the same kind of intensity that remains throughout the entirety of this effort.

The first ten tracks belong to FilthxCollins and each one is just as insane and punishing as the others. Once FilthxCollins begins their buzzing skull mashing assault they keep on smashing their boot down on your throat until you stop breathing. Each track that FilthxCollins provides you here is a mayhem propelled grinding blitzkrieg that rolls from track to track bloodying and battering you until you are motionless. Each offering from these grind heathens is incredibly short with the longest track clocking in at just over one minute. For a very short period of time, FilthxCollins packs a massive punch leaving an indent in your skull. From the guttural vocals to the finger snapping riffs and the incredibly tumultuous drumming you are in for quite the detrimental, brain bruising and entertaining ride.

The final four tracks of this split belong to Skinlover, who combines more hardcore and powerviolence elements to their style. Skinlover’s four tracks make you feel beaten down and as though you are being repeatedly kicked and stomped on. Each of the four tracks are punchy, violent and unapologetic. Right from the get go Skinlover starts swinging and with each track they connect over and over again snapping your head back. Each track is filled with grind filled madness as well as slower more trudging passages that beat you straight in to the ground. Skinlover provides you with shredding anvil heavy riffs that are sewn together with manic screams and barbaric blasting drums to gift you with a powerful and menacing overall sound. Through their four tracks, Skinlover provides you with a heavy ear drum shredding listen that is hard to forget.

This split between these two anarchic bands is a solid one. This effort is a high velocity sonic assault that leaves your neck bent for quite some time to come.

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.
