HYPOTHERMIA - SVARTKONST

AGONIA RECORDS 2015

Release: 15-05-2015
Origin:      Sweden
Length:     37:13


Feeling depressive after returning from a 3 day festival and “normal” working life sets in. Feeling down, because your relationship has ended. Weak and bad moods during summer, because it looks like autumn’s grey and rain. Or you just want to end it all… than here is the perfect remedy.

Hypothermia’s fifth cut through the veins is once again a perfect example of how depressive post black metal should sound like. Almost 40 minutes of misery to dwell around in your darkest thoughts and re-live your deepest emotions. Fantastic.

In the veins of Forgotten Tomb and Lifelover Hypothermia present this same atrabilious polyphonic black metal, brought instrumental and immediately feeling the deep cut inside your flesh and soul. Nocturnal, touching and moving.

I don’t have anything more to add. Any anti-lover of this style of music and still alive should give Hypothermia a chance. Who knows will it be the final step to be removed forever from your personal misery and pain. Beautiful!

Anti-living post black metal, I (dis)like.

Drown In Blood - Addicted To Murder

Earthquake Terror Noise 2015

Italian Drown In Blood present us their debut album “Addicted To Murder” a real great piece of technical death metal but still raw and inventive.
As we said Drown in Blood hailing from Italy, specifically Milan but they are like hailing from the everglades of Florida. Their music conveys seasons of Morrisound' s and those glorious days of late 80ies early 90ies when Floridian Death Metal warriors devastate planet earth.

Really is so perfect sense to hear nowadays bands playing like Drown In Blood doing.
It is patently clear the Italians fix the job well!!! They deliver us a nearly perfectly death metal album recollecting us the best days of Obituary, early Morbid Angel, Monstrosity, Massacre, Six Feet Under and so many others. Also the production militates about it, like another Scott  Burns –the death metal producer – production. A high quality production but still keeping the flame of underground death metal alive.

Another thing I adored here is that although they are rich technical band at the same time they always keep a warm and down to earth sound. Of course, the true death metal classics have already been written but a 2015 death metal album can’t possibly come with a better sound and more destructive guitar chords. Vocalist Gio versatile performance is easily on par with famous vocalists of then in sheer intensity.

“Addicted To Murder” is a perfect combination of brain candy and sheer brutality. I call it a death metal fortress which will marks DEATH METAL will never dies and shows in the end that bands like Drown In Blood and their similars is the future for the death metal genre to go endlessly!

This is an album not to be missed by any serious death metal afficiniado.

SERPENTINE - Circle Of Knives

AOR Heaven 2015

"Circle Of Knives" is album number three of Welsh band lead by Gareth David Noon (key) and Chris Gould (g). Despite some line-up-changes SERPENTINE deliver their best record so far in many respects (songwriting, sound, arrangements), which in addition to that offers the hardest parts of the band's history.

Recorded at Gary Hughes' (TEN) studio, the sound is noble and almost majestic. New frontman Adam Payne (TIDAL), who occasionally sounds like Hughes himself, is also able to provide almost metal-like vocals when it comes to lower pitch ("Season Of The Witch") or extremely emotional parts ("Bleed") when the songs require him to. Gould on guitar, too, delivers breathtaking and variable work.

The epic touch to the material, which is more or less present all the time, seems not to be artificial at any given time. Therefore listeners can find lots of details which make the album enjoyable on a long-term basis. Melodic rock with a huge amount of AOR as well as some screaming metal guitars and pompous keyboards all over the place.

SERPENTINE can do and magnificently manage to walk on many different grounds.

Excellent album!
