Repugnatory – Eterna Abominación (2022)

Repugnatory
Release date: August 27th, 2022
Label: Independent

One of the more consistent bands on the scene, these guys put out albums right after the other this being the fourth and one of their best yet.

Ritual opens it up and this goes straight for the blasphemy that will be covered here, if you know this band by now you will hear that they use that same formula they been using on their music previously but here it sounds better the production is excellent! this track kills.

As Supremacía infernal sounding like a crusher from start this rides along with verocious power, its pure evil as it goes, the band is going off here. Viendo el cielo caer, have to love the titles on these and this is just right, the track has a great flow to it and leaving me with a vicious grin on me to this point. Dios muerto a little different than previous but gets better as it goes, the ending parts are really good, La voz de los espíritu is just an instrumental as filler as we get back to business on Conteplaras el horror a good driving track that fits in well on this release but it gets heavier on Espanto del más allá which is quite short but delivers the punch.

The title track to close and wouldn’t want it any other way as everybody is going off here as this is the longest track and everybody is taking a shot and a strange quick ending.

This has got to be my fvorite release by the band so far, as it’s well put together, all the tracks are composed right, just hoping sor a physicl copy in the future.

Behead – Choose Your Death (2022)

Behead
Release date: August 31st, 2022
Label: Burning Coffin Records/Dreadful Records

At last the debut full length from this death thrash band, I been following them since the beginning and this release is way over due as the band has always had some good material to deliver and it shows on this debut.

Moonlight Nocturne starts this out an instrumental with two sides to it the first consist of a piano playing and just about half way the band comes in, nothing bombastic yet, here they keep the tempo just right for what is to come next all hell breaks loose on Endless Hatred as this is riveting, as this has a pounding part that will grab your attention, it rips no doubt.

Reborn an absolute crusher, and will say this is sung in Spanish as they toggle those on here. but the band got away from that Thrash sound from the past you can tell from this point, Impossible Equilibrium this starts kinda slow but then all cylinders come in an all out onslaught will be brought on you, a crusher. and it continues on Worrying Seconds as this is headsplitting as well, fast paced with just the right touch, the bass bashing on here is quite a delight as well as the ripping leads.

If you like the heaviness thats been given to this point then Inestabilidad won’t let you down, this is a solid ripper, no fucking around here. enen a slight break near the end does nothing to takeaway anything. Indiferencia comes on a little different sounds like it’s an old track for some reason to my ears, its heavy but different.

As we get near the end, Suicidal Mind comes in and a nice hook to it at the start then it goes off and it does in a righteous way one of the best on here, the closer Human Despair is the longest track on here so it has a few different parts to it but is a strohg closer to this opus.

For a band that has been on the scene for over ten years now, I always thought they got left behind but better late than never as this debut is as solid as they come, good luck to them.

Speedhammer – On Speed Nights (2022)

Speedhammer
Release date: August 21st, 2022
Label: Independent

Well it was a surprise to me when this showed up in my mail, as I remember when this band put out their first demo and then they released Hooded Metal which I could never find and I ridden them off cause nothing new since 2017.

So this is a demo which shows the direction in which the band is on now after all these years, and the band have taken this weird fascination with Japan now as some of the songs lean towards that and even the band photo even shows that.

So lets get into this, Speedhammer Arrives in Tokio yes the cities name is spelled like that on here and it’s one of the better tracks on here as the lyrics come in well, the band consider themselves as Obscure and Alcoholic Evil Speed Metal these days and from this track it sure sounds like it, but to be honest other bands on the scene have covered this well while these guys were on hiatus.

Grand Dragon is a pretty generic track has a good vibe to it but this next one The Tengu Demon is where the Japanese stuff comes in as a spoken part starts it off then they procide to sing in that language but the chorus in English “Die… by… the sword!
Of the tengu demon”
the nusic isn’t bad has some good speed to it. Speed Nights X this one is a bit strange as it has great lyrics but the nusic doesn’t rise to the occasion till the end, Die in Fire is a lovely love song in which they can only manage and to close Biermaniac which is recorded live, and this version sounds a bit better than the studio version.

Like I said at the start nothing new but I will keep following them, they have a preview track from their up coming full release on their Bandcamp and the production sounds quite well so something to look forward to.

Ritual Pyre – Ritual Pyre (2022)

Ritual Pyre
Release date: September 21, 2022
Label: Forgotten Treasures Records

The latest from this duo in form of an EP of Death Netal, and from the opener Spirit´s Journey you can hear that this isn’t your tradional fast paced stuff, it’s not bad but I expected more but they pick up the pace on Erase Their Curse as this one starts slow as well but creeps up then it goes off and the guitar tone isn’t bad either the bass can be hears quite well, the track has it’s highs and lows.

Nothing much changes on Ritual as it starts slow then this crunchy riffage comes in that gives it some life but no head bashing stuff yet. so halfway through and Dwellers comes in and riffage from the last one crosses over to this one but this gets better as it goes. Aeonic Slumber is pretty much like everything that has been put out during this whole thing and to end Winged Dragon with a heavier beat at the start, sounds like they saved the best for last, of all the tracks on here I would pick this one as the highlight as it has everything we heard beforehand but here it all falls into place just in the right mode.

This is more on the Death/Doom side of things some might like it.

Krux – Dystopian Visions (2022)

Krux
Release date: September 4th, 2022
Label: Independent

A band that went under the name Krull but now changed the name, now they taken a more Blackened Thrash Metal approach to their music as it looks like they have a new vocalist added to their ranks as well.

And from the opener Apokalyptor the first thing that struck out for me were the vocals as they are strong and this is the only track sung in spanish on here, as far as the music it’s varies as it has a good drive but they throw in some cmplex changes not what bands usually do playing this style, an interesting opener.

A litte more aggression on Serpent Dreams as the drums get more of a pounding on here, the band take it up a notch on this one and it carries on into Straight to Hell and this sounds like where going there as the vocals lead us there, the spoken part adds to the whole thing.

As we get into Divine Technology and this one is up there to, as it covers a subject I can get into, has a good vibe through out the whole thing as the closer Dark Age has this feel to it, of darkness, of what the world is headed to, not the fastest track but has its own life to it, really needs to be heard to be enjoyed.

Not a bad debut under the new name, as it has some good high points, give it a listen you might like what you hear.

Perpetual Holocaust – Infernal Damnation (2022)

Perpetual Holocaust
Release date: 2022
Label: Deculto Prods

An exclusive here as this EP hasn’t been released yet, the band sent me this to put up on my Youtube channel they told me it will be coming out on tape version through Deculto Prods but no date.

Four solid tracks of their branded style of death metal, the drumming throughout this speaks for itself.

Onslaught Kommand – Demo (2022)

Onslaught Kommand
Release date: August 12th, 2022
Label: Godz ov War Productions

Hell yeah! here is one for extremist, this crushes if you dig old bands like Dead Infection, Terrorizer any of that old school Grindcore this demo should fill your need, gut wrenching from start to finish this band brings this genre to the scene and it does it just right, raw production and all the goods are here.

One band I will be happy to hear more from if this is what they deliver, enjoy!

Pentagram – Live & Reh. (Evil Past) 1985-1987 (2022)

Pentagram
Release date: 2022
Label: Deathrash Records

A nice compilation put out by this Colombian label, this is raw so don’t expect high quality here the first six tracks are from the infamous “Death Metal Holocaust” 1985 and the next part includes Instrumental Rehearsals from 1986 and they ain’t labeled on the package but once you hear it you will know what it is if your familiar with the band and the last part is live tracks from Manuel Plaza, Santiago de Chile 1987 which I think have been released before on cd.

This is for collectors only a nice package as well comes in a 7″ cardboard digi pack, my advice for if you want to purchase this get it from Warhemic Productions not off Ebay.

Tracklist:
1.Fatal Predictions
2.Temple Of Perdition
3.Evil Incarnate
4.Summoned For The Grave
5.Invert The Cross
6.Throught The Cave
7.Instrumental Rehearsal 1986
8.Instrumental Rehearsal 1986
9.Instrumental Rehearsal 1986

Repulsive Corruption – Heretical Descomposition (2022)

Repulsive Corruption
Release date: Sep 3, 2022
Label: Independen
t

Not much is known about this death/thrash band, I know they formed in 2017 but never released anything until this EP, and it storms, only four tracks on here.

Forced Prayer this opener pretty much sets the pace on what we are going to get here, fast aggressive riffage with some power packed vocals and ripping leads to boot. an excellent opener as it goes into Dead Time with a more crunch at the start but after the kill begins, this is heavy in its own glory, all into extreme metal will enjoy this.

And no letting up on Land of the Dead as with a more pounding vibe to it but goes off near the end, not bad just another side of the band, and to close The Form of Paranoia which goes off from the beginning and the vocals get the work here, a good closer to this debut.

As far as I’m concerned this band has all the elements down to a pack, well written tracks that should take them to higher ground.
