Based out of Adelaide, Australia, BEYOND MORTAL DREAMS' EP Dreaming Death unearths savage incarnation of death metal darkness. BMD are sure to continue in the tradition for which bands from Down Under have always been known for: finding their own ways of portraying extreme metal violence with addition of some of the most haunting atmospheres.
DOMINHATE retain everything essential about death metal while pushing towards added extremity - devastating rhythms with a dark flavour, unrelenting waves of earth-shattering percussion, formidable infernal roars from what sounds like only a mythical figure, and imagery that is hand-painted but ominous all the same with an undeniable otherworldly aura about it. Dominhate present the new face of death metal - contemporary without losing the ancient morbid touch, forward-thinking while paying tribute to the pillars of the genre. "Emissaries of Morning" is a new chapter in death metal mastery; it is how you take forward the sound of the genre without betraying the roots.
HEAVING EARTH's sophomore album. Blasphemous symphony of ungodly Death Metal. 12 movements in 50 minutes. The jewelcase CD release is accompanied with 20 pages booklet. Great release. Lavadome Productions.
The Portuguese trio PESTIFER has arrived to wide-spread an apocalyptic rapture with its debut album entitled "Execration Diatribes". The album contains nine enraging compositions of finest Death Metal havoc!
"Execration Diatribes" is a manifesto of what Death Metal is and should be in terms of thinking, spirituality and perceiving one's own limits and in accordance with the blasphemous, cruel and furious preception of the genre as such.
The legacy of albums like "Hell Awaits", "Morbid Visions", "I.N.R.I.", "Black Force Domain" has been channeled through "Execration Diatribes" in the purest form and at ultimate intensity.
Death Metal has been missing such an album for good 16 years. The wait is almost over. Wrathful legions of the apocalypse will rise again and destroy!
