The name CROTCHDUSTER might surely trigger opposite reactions, depending on the musical inclination, the state of mind, amongst millions of other factors. For some, it might imply absolute grind â€“ when nothing could be further from the truth. CROTCHDUSTER is a gem that means humor, sarcasm, good musicianship, excellent concept and is also an excellent means to sum up in one CD virtually every musical style you can think of.
Humm Divine Heresy’s “Bleed The Fifth”, of course i had to talk about Divine Heresy, after i knew that Dino Cazares of Fear Factory fame had a new band and that it was kinda deathmetalish and that it had Tim “The Missile” Yeung on the drums and on the bass Joe Payne from Nile fame (even though he had no part in the making of this album), and some metalcore guy for vocals, well thats a kick ass lineup, but as well we all know sometimes a great team doesn’t play a great game hehehe, so i guess Divine Heresy play above all else Melodic Death Metal, with a lot of touches of Deathcore and Metalcore, sounds good to me… well we will see.
Seems Death/Trash is in, Dew-Scented are a German Death/Trash outfit, kinda blasting growling kind of thing hehehe, not that that’s bad at all, hehehe, so here comes “Incinerate”, lets have a look to see how it handles itself.
DEATH DU JOUR was conjured up by TK (guitar, vocals), OM (guitar, backing vocals), PB (bass) and TF (drums) in early 2000 and have already a debut EP on the way (Gamashinoch). Fragments of Perdition follows on the path shown in the debut, but the approach is more technical, more chaotic, grinder and heavier.
Acheron should be a reference band as regards music and ideology to a number of (satanic) Death and Black Metal bands out there. I have not exactly been a regular follower of the band, but I do recognize the importance (or lack thereof) of Rebirth: Metamorphosing into Godhood.
Oh Jesus… Behemoth has a new album, for anyone that weren’t paying attention Behemoth’s last album “Demigod” was actually the first review on Soundcult, so it’s my pleasure to again grace myself in the presence of awesomeness … heheh maybe yes, maybe no, there are big shoes to fill after “Demigod”, again it seems we are in the irreligious theme, so let’s see how good is “The Apostasy”.
Tchhh Nowadays Death Metal, kinda like Metalcore/Deathcore are getting pretty weird, bands are having problems keeping fresh and spend their time reworking other bands stuff, so in this context Aborted brings a new album, Aborted come from the Death Metal Grind School humm kinda like Carcass, hailing from Belgium, kinda playing a blast beat screaming brutal death metal, so what does Slaughter & Apparatus: A Methodical Overture brings to this already filled table… (oh and nice album name… funny).
Vader is back with another album. This guys record new material like if there is no tomorrow. I bet that, in less then one year, I will be already reviewing another Vader EP.
So… carrying on the Vader’s tradition – making albums between EP’s, or vice versa – we now have the “Impressions in Blood” album [previous Vader’s work was the “The Art of War” EP].
