In true terror and sickening lobotomizing fashion, Horrific Demise ushers forth a nasty and gnarled brand of brutal death that is not to be ignored. Through their new titled Excruciating Extermination you come face to face with nine gruesome and impaling offerings one right after the next. Forever punishing and unrelenting, Horrific Demise roll from one track to the next providing you with a truly unforgiving and gutting offering that leaves you covered in viscera and your own flayed organs. There is no filler or fluff here as what you get is pure savagery and barbarity from beginning to end. This is a true brutal death assault that does not compromise as it ushers forth nine sickening tracks of unfiltered and dehumanizing filth.

Excruciating Extermination begins its terrifying assault with Born From Brutality, which lulls you in with a lead in filled with what sounds like Spanish guitars, until all hell unleashes just a mere thirty seconds in. After that nice little lead in, Horrific Demise assaults and buries the listener underneath droves of rot and fetid remains until you become one with the stagnant pile. Without so much as a bat of an eyelash, Horrific Demise torment, torture and mutilate you leaving you as nothing more than blood splatter and hacked up worm food.

Through and through this is top notch brutal death that supplies you with flesh tearing riffs and drum work that barrels straight through your skull only to desecrate your brain. Bloodied, and inhuman, guttural roars crop up through the sonic wall of skin blistering madness. All of this culminates in to an entirely savage and vein bursting sound that you simply cannot turn away from. Each track is as barbaric and dehumanizing as the last as they leave you to rot and become fetid food for the creatures that dwell beneath the soil.

Excruciating Extermination is brutal death metal done perfectly. This release is entirely engaging, entertaining and down right spine severing. Truly gruesome, vile and unbelievably heavy, this release is something to behold. It is entirely monstrous as it rips your skin from flesh and flesh from bone, severing you and lobotomizing you at every single second that ticks off of the run time. Through and through, Excruciating Extermination is a true monster of brutal death and will stand atop as one of the best brutal death metal records to be unleashed this year.

Phobophilic: Undimensioned Identities

Hailing from the frozen tundra that is North Dakota are death dealers Phobophilic. Through their upcoming release titled Undimensioned Identities you are treated to four horror filled, bleeding raw and bone masticating tracks. Devoid of filler, Phobophilic offers up four straight grave digging tracks one right after the next. Entirely a twisted mass of death and mayhem, Phobophilic rip straight through offering after offering to provide you with a truly savage and monstrous listen. Even as short as this release is, it certainly packs a massive brain mashing punch. Savage, brutal and down right flesh devouring, Undimensioned Identities is as vein draining and neck snapping as they come.

Plenty of new death metal bands follow in the footsteps of their death metal forefathers and that certainly includes Phobophilic. With that being said though, these tomb desecrators add their own deranged twist to the ancient genre to stand out and create a sound that is stylistically their own. With massive vein severing riffs and ever bulldozing drum work that are only to be paired with blood stained unearthly growls, Phobophilic creates a nasty and gnarled sound. Yet as raw as their sound is, it is concise, well crafted and appropriately murky making their overall sound cohesive and entirely well rounded.

Each offering is a slaughtering wall of death that flies out of their respective graves to offer you something that is truly barbaric yet entirely memorable. The four tracks that are present here are monsters that are to behold. Each one is just as grisly and gnarled as the last, and as heavy and brain stem severing as the last making this to be a deadly release overall. Undimensioned Identities as a whole is a maelstrom of ripping death that captures you from the very beginning only to lay you to rest as nothing more than a hollowed out form of your former self. Blood letting and incredibly wicked, Phobophilic present you with four great offerings one after the next that are nothing but pure, unfiltered and bleeding death.

Rotting, diseased, filled with horror and deadly terror, Undimensioned Identities is a great release. Phobophilic packs a lot in to only four tracks making this entire release comprehensive and entirely entertaining leaving you reaching to hit play again and again. Undimensioned Identities is criminally short leaving you wanting more of this refined bleeding death. This is an excellent release through and through, and nothing more needs to be said than that.

Undimensioned Identities will be released September 13 through Rotted Life.

Grevia: Misophonic

Blending death metal and grind together to create an unholy, brain splattering and entirely ferocious sound is Grevia with their debut EP titled Misophonic. This six track EP is an explosive and volatile offering that will rip your head from your shoulders without so much as a pause. Unforgiving, unyielding and unrelenting, Grevia usher forth a savage and destructive display of potent death grind that will melt your flesh from your bones. As short as this release is with most tracks topping just over the two minute mark, it more than makes up for in violence and pure savagery. Misophonic packs more than a punch as you feel as though you have been hit repeatedly with a lead pipe once all is said and done.

Each of the six tracks present here are pure outbursts of terrorizing noise and destruction, never for them to relent as they each leave nothing but devastation in their wake. There is no compromise here and there is no slowing Grevia down as they push the pedal through the floor from the very beginning until the final note crosses your speakers. Through and through you come face to face with six twisted, blood boiling and skin peeling death riddled grinding offerings that are entirely ceaseless. Rampaging from track to track, Grevia disregards human life completely to provide you with a neck twisting and life threatening sound.

In utter life dismantling fashion, Grevia ushers forth flesh slicing riffs that cut deep only pair them with machine gun fire drum work that barrels straight through your chest. Among the wall of grinding noise come bloodied and furious vocals that seem to be cropping up from the under belly of hell itself. As a whole, Misophonic is a grisly gnashing of death riddled grind that aims to pulverize you until you are nothing more than unidentifiable pulp. Each cut is a savage earth scorching effort that traps you within its fire laden vortex never for you to come out the other side unscathed. Misophonic is a terrorizing juggernaut of death and explosive destruction that you cannot simply turn away from.

In great sonic brain mashing violence, incendiary flesh melting savagery and neck twisting death, Grevia offers up something here with Misophonic that is truly devastating. Each track is a well constructed blitzkrieg of explosive violence that removes your head nearly immediately only to continue dismantling you until you are no more. The only grip that I have regarding this release is that it is criminally short. You will sit here and press play over and over again to bear witness to true and pure destruction. Overall, Misophonic is a great release and with this being the debut EP from these absolute monsters, it will be great to see what other life dismantling sounds they come up with in the future. For now however, we are graced with this monster of an EP and god damn it’s great.

Misophonic will be unleashed September 20 through Lethal Scissor.

From beginning to end Alienatör offers up a truly murky, chunky yet noise filled sound that tears at your ear drums, but in the best possible way. Each track is a madhouse of artery stopping, head banging sludge and noise rock that you cannot simply turn away from.

Once you hit play you hear a twenty second static filled intro complete with news clips regarding drug use, and you quickly realize what you have stumbled in to. As soon as the intro fades, you immediately become hit with buzzing murky riffs that are backed by hard hitting drums and manic vocals that are screamed at you from every angle. The first full track you come across titled “False Hope” is a hard hitting, in your face offering that hits you immediately and ultimately traps you within the vortex of chaos that Alienatör produces here. Each track that follows the intro is a chaotic sludge filled wall that storms at you from every direction never giving you a chance to escape the noisy, sludge filled blitzkrieg that Alienatör ushers forth.

Through and through Pariahs is a record that gets right underneath your skin from the very beginning. This record does a great job of manifesting itself in your brain from the get go having you thrash around and bang your head until your brain bruises. Each track is a force of sludge filled reckoning that is incredibly potent and explosive. These thirteen tracks are volatile and explosive as each one shoots straight out of your speakers to provide you with a truly whiplash inducing listen that you will not soon forget. Bombastic and neck bending from the beginning to the end, Pariahs never stops its noise riddled rampage until the final scorching note crosses the boundaries of your speakers.

With all of that said, each track really is great and something to behold. The musicianship is great, the vocals are varied and solid, the production is clean and the song writing is good as well and that all comes together to create something that is wholly entertaining and unforgettable. Each of the thirteen tracks that are harbored within the chaotic walls of Pariahs are great as each one is just as good as the last.

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.
