Prosatanos / Degotten
Release date: January 3rd, 2021
Label: Total Death Records
A split that features the German band Prosatanos and Degotten which I’ll get into more on this release and 10 tracks featured here more by the Germans.
Basically a black thrash release, for me Prosatanos is something you would have to listen to the vocals are something you would want to hear first, the music is vicious and for me the strongest track is the only one they sung in German to close their part of the release so have a listen.
So onto Degotten and you can immediately here the difference between the bands and the first track Beast Fornication shows the power this band has always delivered with some great production on here that you can hear all the instruments just right and just the way the composition is written gives you a vibe these guys know how to slay your ass.
And this next one Whore (Hure) brought back memories of their earlier material and the bass really stands out here and it has a great drive and the vocals here are excellent as we go into Ravisher of Souls which opens with this crunchy riffing and then goes off into a more faster pace but it has an interesting break and the guitar work on here really stands out and keeps you glued to the whole thing, the way the whole thing rides out makes this one of the best on here.
Todeshymne, the closer and perfect as the horde comes out to kill, the double bass drums taking a beating is always good but this has that anthem feel to it for me and the band really has some great crushing parts in here and the vocal way this ends pretty much a great closer.
I found this out of nowhere and will say its good to hear Degotten again as this horde has always put out some killer shit! I just hope for another full length and maybe all these tracks on here will be on it so lets see whats next.
