Slaughterday - Ravenous review

Hailing from Germany Slaughterday plays Old School Death Metal. The line-up of Slaughterday is guitarist/bassist Jens Finger and drummer/vocalist Bernd Reiners. In 2013 they released their debut album Nightmare Vortex and now they have released their newest EP Ravenous.

Ravenous contains four tracks and has an total length of 19 minutes. First three tracks are tracks from themselves and the fourth track is Ave Satanas, a cover of Acheron. When you begin to listen to this EP you must realize that in the next 19 minutes you are not going to keep calm. You will get blasted away. When you listen to it on a hard volume, you will get into a fight with your neighbors. These are the consequences when you will take a listen to this EP, but there is a good thing. The good thing will make all these arguments sound weak. And the good thing is that this is really fuckin' good old school death metal full of blasting drums and heavy guitars that is a pleasure to listen to if you are into death metal.

Death metal your thing? Go get this EP as soon as possible because you have to listen to this.

Aeolus - Celestial Forest review

In 2013, Aeolus started in Wisconsin, USA. The man behind everything is Samyaza. He is Aeolus. Aeolus plays atmospheric black metal. Written, recorded and mixed in 2014, now there is the first EP from them. It is called Celestial Forest.

Celestial Forest has an total length of 32 minutes. It contains seven tracks from which one is a cover of The Wolfpack by Satyricon. The EP mixes some ambient tracks with some raw, pure black metal tracks. The second track, for example, contains very raw screaming which may scare you. Overall the EP has an dark, raw touch, but that is cool. It makes it more creepy, darker and because of that touch you are really getting into the music. The ambient parts are nice too, these are not boring, so you can't fall asleep, but these are a little bit dreamy, but if you dream away, you are awake before you know, because of the black metal that started already.

Black metal is your thing? You also like ambient parts in metal music? Go listen to this EP.

Spawn of Psychosis - Freakshow Pandemic review

They come from Kent, UK and play a unique mix of cyber, industrial, punk and metal music. Who are they? They are Spawn of Psychosis. Spawn of Psychosis is vocalist SPAWN, guitarist DRAGG and RAZORR and bassist KHAOSS. SPAWN AND RAZOR also takes care of the sampling and drum programming while RAZORR also plays the synth. To date Spawn of Psychosis released two full lengths and an EP. Freakshow Pandemic is their latest full length album.

Freakshow Pandemic contains 10 tracks and has an total length of 40 minutes. The album begins with an intro which is real chaotic, but good listenable, you know immediately that this is not an band as any other band. The intro definitely gets you in the mood for the rest of this release. It slowly fades away, but when the second track starts you won't sit still. That feeling will hold on until the final track. That track is much more slower. The music of Freakshow Pandemic is indeed to describe as a mix of cyber, industrial, punk and metal music, while in the instrumental music I don't hear the punk influences much. Otherwise, the vocals have a very punk feeling in it, so much indeed that in Fuel For The Fire sometimes the vocals sounded as Johnny Rotten of The Sex Pistols to me. And that is a good thing.

 So you like industrial music? Metal is your thing? Or punk it is? It doesn't matter, go listen Spawn of Psychosis!

Septekh - Plan For World Domination review

Septekh, they come from Sweden and are formed in 2008. A mix of death metal and thrash metal is what they produce. Septekh is Nils GRZNLS Meseke on vocals, guitarist David Wikström, drummer Staffan Persson and Patrik Ström takes care of the bass. They already release two EP's, one in 2012 and one in 2013. Now their debut full-lenght Plan For World Domination is out on Abyss Records.

This release has an total length of 1 hour full of thrash/death metal. It contains 13 tracks. To be honest I didn't like it, but I listened it from begin to end and now I like it. The thing was that I liked the music from the beginning, but I needed to get used to the vocals. The vocals are very specific, good, but not what you expect. And, afterwards, these vocals are a perfect fit for the rest of the music. This is not pure thrash/death metal. Sure there are influences, a lot of influences indeed. But I hear also something progressive/experimental in it. And that's what makes it interesting; it is different from other thrash/death metal bands.

Go listen to this album, take the time, because it will cost you an hour. But it is worth it!
