Hailing from Bavaria, BLACKEVIL have been forging fire since 2013. Their first demo, appropriately titled Hail the Cult, emerged from the darkness in 2015, auspiciously revealing a razor-sharp and endlessly salacious style of blackthrash. Come BLACKEVIL?s debut album, 2017?s The Ceremonial Fire, the power-trio up-ratcheted everything: more speed, more hooks, more black, more evil, more of MORE! Diehards took notice, thankfully, and the band furthered the momentum the next year with a split LP with Italy?s esteemed Witchunter. Still, the best was yet to come?
Here you have the debut full-length from EVIL, a four-piece black/speed metal band from Tokyo, Japan. Although the band has existed since 2011 and has previously released two demos and a split CD, its output to this point has been largely overlooked. With ?Rites of Evil,? however, its profile is rightfully promised to rise from the obscurity that is due at least in part to its geographic isolation. Including venerable bands such as Bathory, Hellhammer and Slayer in its list of prominent influences that in all span at least three continents and various subsets of first-wave black metal and satanic speed metal, the ones that shine through the most are early Sodom, Sarcofago, and fellow compatriots Sabbat and a certain, notorious Japanese punk metal band.
It?s been four long years since HEXECUTOR released their shockingly masterful debut album, Poison, Lust and Damnation. The ?shock? wasn?t so much that the French quartet came out of nowhere ? indeed, they?d made waves in the underground with their debut demo in 2012 and especially the Hangmen of Roazhon EP two years later (which DYING VICTIMS reissued on 12? vinyl in 2018, to meet demand) ? but rather that there existed a band putting an undeniably authentic yet also unique twist on classic mid-?80s speed metal and thrash. HEXECUTOR weren?t trying to reinvent language; they were simply trying to expand the lexicon a bit, and they did so with astonishing aplomb on Poison, Lust and Damnation.
MAJESTIC MASS (DK) debut album "Savage Empire of Death" released on Iron Fist Productions features seven tracks of blood drenched blackened psych-rock. MAJESTIC MASS delivers an audial unique satanic occult spirit, sexual magic and pure perdition which is not for the weak minded. Blackened psychadelic doom!
One of the metal underground?s best-kept secrets, WARLUST began their assault on the false in 2012. The title of their debut demo, 2014?s Unholy Attack, said everything it needed to: here was blackthrashing METAL, steeped in the spirits of old and with genuinely evil blood coursing through its veins. However, it was 2017?s Morbid Execution debut album where WARLUST first truly took flight ? on burning wings of flame! More intense, more epic, more heavy fucking metal, Morbid Execution carried on the noble work started by founding fathers Desaster in their homeland and Deströyer 666, Zemial, and Aura Noir abroad.
