Release date: April 18th, 2019
This band has been around for a few years releasing their own style of Death Metal and this is the first time I ever featured them on here, this new demo consist of two studio tracks and three live.
Hoguera de Cadaveres opens this up and its catchy as hell with these crunchy riffs and the vocals are excellent as this whole thing is sung in spanish and the way they come off is perfect but you gotta hear the leads on here they took this track right to the top and even the next one Ciegos en la fe is just as good pure anti christianity tracks but the music is just crushing with an awesome production to boot.
The live tracks are good for filler as they were recorded on a single deck I take as you can hear the crowd in the background but you can make out what is going on and maybe will hear studio versions in the future but these two studio tracks are just mind blowing they got better with each listen.
Inclosing I read on their facebook page that they have a full length to be coming out this year but it must of been put on hold because it was posted back in late July and nothing has been mentioned after that except this demo so will see what happens.

Well this is something I was happy to see pop up as I wondered what happened to this band after the debut was an absolute crusher! but onto this new 4 track EP.
Desolated Souls /Voices from Beyond, and straight out this track means business as it just rips out with a bashing that will have you hooked, the fucking leads on here are a blazing and even the break near the end is heavy as fuck a great opener in deed, Unholy War some good old anti christian stuff here and more tempo changes on here that made this interesting and it’s up there with the first one, will say the production on here is very good the vocals stand out as well as all the instruments.
Moon, is a Mortuary Drape cover that adds a different flare to this EP as this is a excellent cover that won’t disappoint and the closer Black Flame/The Darkness Falls, this track was previously released by the band but here it sounds better than the original as it has a new life and hell it smashes your head as its pure praise of hell and a nice guitar outro that ends this trip.
Well this some good shit here but you need to act fast if you want a copy as its only been pressed to a 100 copies on tape.
Release date: August 16th, 2019
Here is a band that has been around for awhile but I to be honest and had wondered what ever happened to them as they have only released a few demos and singles in the past and was surprised when I read they released another demo last year and I will say that one is killer, I only wish I had known because its killer!
This new 3 track is a bit different as the production isn’t as good as the previous and they have taken a different approach here but it’s not bad as these tracks are pretty strong, it just took me a few listens for them to sink into me but the opener The Aberrant Signal is as good as it can get anybody will agree as this is a pounding number and the ripping lead near the end really brought full chaos to it. Anticosmogenesis is up next and a bit different but with a killer drum roll then the bass line this fucker is pure death metal with its slow pounding part then this fantastic sounding solo that really grabs you but you can tell the band has taken another way on their lyrical content as it’s all about the satanic shit anymore more on the mystical and horror side but this closer Flames of Perversion to me is the highlight on here as the band comes all out ablazing and simply shreds on all angles so its worth a listen.
The only let down is the production as it kinda took the feeling out of it in a way but hopefully some of these tracks get re recorded on a future release but still is good the band is still active in the end.

Most of you fuckers out there probably already know what this is all about but for the newcomers this is the first release from this crushing death metal act, this was released last year but this is my take on the cd version released this year with bonus tracks.
With an interesting intro that goes straight into Satanic Ceremony, we get this heavy pounding as the vocals are sick and the pounding of the drums and the guitar work that just sinks into your skull,the ritual has begun!
Blasphemous Attack just goes off just the way I like it, full blasphemy right to the point as this one will crush you cause it’s short and straight to the point and it doesn’t let up on Diabolical Insane which is a bit different but is powerful to the hilt in it’s own style as its more complex to the previous but still will kill you.
So we go into Black Pest and this my friends is a scorcher of a track as it goes in for the kill from the beginning and its just a catchy one because most likely the vocals and the theres when the leads come in it just gets better, just one of those tracks that gets your blood pumping and oh fuck Infernal Slaves, which was the original closer on the tape version simply goes off as this track has everything you could want and the part where the band goes off its an all out assault on your body and soul, I fucking love it!
So we go onto the bonus tracks, first one being a cover of old SepulturaWarriors Of Death which they do a fine job of and would make the band proud it has their flare to it but hits it on the nail! and so we close with Ritual Blasphemer and its as strong as the rest as one thing I noticed is the bands music gets heavier as it goes along and it shows here to the end.
I’m so glad that I got a copy of this and i strongly recommend getting a copy as this is worth every cent, the production is perfect for a debut and nice packaging, contact the band or label to get a copy as this is going fast, a total crusher of a debut.
Well this being the first time I ever attended this festival I was pretty much floored by the whole experience, I got there early on day 1 knowing Invocation Spells was the second band and I didn’t want to miss them so everything went well as I got to see Venereal Baptism from Texas and was impressed by the bands set and then I went to the front of the stage to catch Invocation Spells and man did they kill it! A blistering set with old and new tracks that left the crowd pretty floored, after they played I went and hungout with the band and was amazed on how they made a new bunch of fans that night and their merchandise was selling which was a good thing.
For me that first night was the best as I hungout with both the bands from Chile and had a few drinks and talked about all kinds of metal and other shit and yeah all the bands that night were amazing Goatpenis and Sadistic Intent just killed, as their sets set the crowd going wild! so it was a fantastic start to this 3 day event.
Day 2 was a more of a relax day and you could tell from the debauchery of the night before and I noticed not as many people came out as the first and the sound for some reason wasn’t as loud as the first night and it was hot in the place but Nunslaughter and The Chasm were the highlights for me, Master was good but Paul Speckmann was out of it that night as he was complaining between songs about the sound and just rambling shit which the crowd pretty much got fed up with as I seen people leaving and others yelling at them to play and stop the bullshit so day 2 kind of ended fucked up.
Day 3 was excellent! As soon as I arrived I go in and turn to the stage and Diabolical Messiah start their set and I went right to the front and they had a few technical difficulties but were fixed quick and they crushed! I was amazed on how brutal their set was and they even gave them time to do another song as the crowd was yelling for more which was a good thing because I read earlier they were only given 35 min to play, I was in disbelief when I read that fuck all the way from Chile and that much time to be honest they should of played later.
And the next band on Sabbath Assembly was one thing I wondered why they even were put on the fest as they are Psychedelic Rock, Doom Metal but nothing extreme compared to the rest,I went an drank a few beers while they played and caught them on their last song and kinda felt bad for them as the crowd was never really into them so they didn’t even say nothing as they left the stage. Then it got good again but I was waiting for Massacre the most, I had a chat with Kam Lee earlier and try to tell him about the old days when we used chat by letters but he forgot who I was even mentioned the gig back in 1990 and he didn’t remember the venue, I also asked this to Rick Rozz on a different occasion that night he didn’t remember either which blew my mind but anyhow they came out and did their set and the highlight was when they did a few Mantas tracks but it ended too quick as Kam said they didn’t have anymore material to play that they didn’t think it was gonna go down this good so that was it, the to close out Nocturnas A.D. came on, to be honest I was never into this band so I stayed and only watched half their set and called it a day.
To end this I’d like to say it was a great fest lots of underground merchandise being sold, I could of taken a lot of pics with band members but I passed on that cause it just ain’t my thing anymore.but a big Hail goes out to Elio and Diabolical Messiah, Camilo and Invocation Spells for the good talk and all oh and one more to the two female comrades I met at the hotel that showed me a bit of the town while there Andy and Lily, hope I got that right, if you read this get a hold of me and if things go well will see each other next year.
Release date: May 1st, 2019
Label: Burning Coffin Records
A three song demo from the drummer of Atomic Aggressor and the bass player from Perversor who does the guitar work on here as well.
All I can say is this is some pretty brutal and catchy death thrash metal as all the tracks will kick your ass! my favorite being Red Ripper as this totally rips, I highly recommend checking this out but the only downfall is this was only pressed to 50 tapes that have sold out.
Release date: May 20th, 2019
Label: No Mercy Reks
Well the long long awaited Necroripper release has finally come and as soon as I heard I had to check it out, for those that are not familiar with the band they play death/thrash and their debut left quite a mark back in 2012 so it’s been awhile.
This is up on Spotify just in case you wanna hear the whole thing as I did the review from listening there,but anyhow we get 8 tracks on here and this from the opening track Alwe Ulkantun you can tell the band is back with a vengeance! I was pretty much pleased from this opener and I wanna mention all the track titles are in the Mapuche language as you can see by the title of the album but sung in english from what I can hear and did some research and seen the 2 track promo had the lyrics in english so you will probably have to get a physical copy to see them.
But back to the album the next track Witxanalwe will crush you a full out attack on your senses and the production on here is superb as everything is heard the bass cracking,guitars,drums full in your face sound and it never lets down as you can here on Kollellaullin Weichafe things get even more intense as the vocals of Morbid Van Necroripper really stand out here and the bass guitar goes off a really smoking track.
The intro to Kütral Newen sounds like a horde of wolves coming at you then it breaks into an all out guitar fest of ripping leads is the best way I can describe it and short and sweet, and to the title track and here we get a little change in the vocal style but fits in perfect as it takes nothing away from the whole concept actually it fits in perfect even the slight break with a more pounding sound brings more light to the whole thing and the vocal style continues on to the next one Pewma which was a bit different in the beginning but gets going later on but has its own feel compared to the rest of the tracks on here,still brutal though and a nice fade away ending.
Nüyün Epew a heavy instrumental that has a very old school thrash vibe to it as the riffing catches the feel of the good old days and once again that crackling bass adds a more in depth sound and to the final nail in the coffin Kimün, a pure shredder as everything the album did from the start comes to a crashing end and I mean that in a good way just listen to the drums going off on here, fucking brilliant!
Was the wait worth it? hell yeah it was,it couldn’t of been much better so now I need a physical copy,the label No Mercy Reks put this out so an email is all I could find so here it is firstname.lastname@example.org
Release date: April 23rd, 2019
Label: Schattenkult Produktionen/Throats Productions
The third full length from this killer black/death band and this one only contains four tracks but they are long but when I first heard this I was blown away as this is a brilliant release, the wait for this was well worth it as there isn’t a dull moment here at all.
From the start of Kai Klóketen the band comes right at you and it instantly grabs you, as the songs have all have their own killer instinct and there is plenty of good old caos spread out beyond these tracks, even the closer Caspi Káxen Thejin has it’s very special ending.
I highly recommend this as it’s one of the best releases this year,production is awesome you can hear this perfectly,only thing that bothers me is why this bands name hasn’t been more exposed as this is truly one of the undergrounds best kept secrets so hopefully this takes them to another level.
Release date: May 4th, 2019
Here we have the first self titled full length from this death metal band from south Santiago, with only a few EP’s released previously I never really heard this until I stumbled across this release and it has some good vibes here throughout the release.
Most of the lyrical content on here is based on gore, society, serial killers, b movies which is nothing new but done well and i’ll add this is sung in spanish.
I can’t really pinpoint any lows on here as the band have a great sound that never got boring, the production on here is excellent you can here that distorted bass clearly on the track Andre the Butcher and the guitar tone on here was what really made this for me as it reminded me of something of the past.
As I looked around I could not find anything from this release on the band’s social pages as everything is from the previous releases and those don’t do any justice to this release as they have stepped up the progress here.If the band reads this and wants me to put it on my channel I will do so as this needs to be heard,cheers!
