Deviants – Legion (2022)

Deviants
Release date: January 1st, 2022
Label: Burning Coffin Records

After last years preview track Fake Reality this is a release that was something I was looking forward to, the band consist of two maniacs that have made names for themselves in other bands so there is no surprise this bit of death thrash would deliver am impact.

And after an intro the first one is Fake Reality and it hits like a ton of bricks so if you never heard this the first time out then be prepared to bang your head as this is quite catchy even with the slighter passages in it this has a force to it, but Legion shows another side of the band, this is more extreme and an all out bashing is represented here, to this point this a smasher!

The Buried Parts of the Past more of a slow pace start but then burst into chaotic mayhem with a serious drive the will crush skulls with out a doubt, then a break midway through that crawls up your spine with this ripping lead added then out of nowhere a complete stop comes in and it might throw some off but its quite plesant and added character to the whole thing.

To finish it off a cover Baptized in Blood (Death) and they add their own blood to it as its way fucking heavier than the original so a strong ending to this EP.

Venus Torment – Perversion of Nature (2021)

Venus Torment
Release date: November 2021
Label: Suicide Records

The side project of Ripper guitarist/vocals Patricio Spalinger, but goes under Venus Torment on this side project of his which he handles everything except the drums, and it’s been awhile since any new material was released, so seeing this pop up was a blessing as I knew what to expect since the first album and everything in between was good shit!

And from the opening notes on Infinite Spiral we are led into a frenzy of chaos as this is belted out to crush your soul, and one thing you will notice are that the vocals come in nice and clear but the riffage is just mind blowing, an excellent opener, as the title track is next and this shreds just as well, the drums are being pounded to hell on here and it is demonstrated through whole thing.

I won’t get into every track as this is excellent piece of death thrash as it left me floored, after listening to it a few times it got better and better, if you need a fix of pure aggression this should give you that fill some great hooks are spilled all over this, the track Ultraviolent Fragments of Self will absolutely kill you, short and sweet.

A steamroller of an album, highly recommended.

Necrobastard – Massgrave (2021)

Necrobastard
Release date: December 20th, 2021
Label: Diabolical Summoning Records

Here we have this death thrash band that has been around since 2007 and with a hand full of demos to their credit this is the bands first full length, earlier in the year a compilation “Deadly Resurrection” with their previous work was put out and there you can hear the evolution of the band, and that got me interested on what this release would sound like as the last tracks on that really showed how they finally found an impressive sound.

And it shows on the opening track Necromantic Nights as this comes out blazing with fast paced crunchy riffage and the vocals are straight on as later the track slows down but still packs a punch and it gets even more interesting on Deadly Mass as we hear a different approach here as it starts slow but goes into a pounding vibe immediately but then the roller coaster effect comes in as it has its ups and downs but keeps the intensity intact.

One thing I noticed is the tracks on here are pretty lengthy so a lot is filled in the grooves on these tracks but onto The Grotesque Roots of Civilization and this takes it up notch as this grabs you on all aspects as all the hooks on here made this one of the highlights so far, but hell it even gets better as Into the Burial Darkness is packed with aggressiveness to the max, that should please the bangers.

And I will leave it at that, as this is a solid release with other goodies to be discovered on the remaining tracks, the old school sound is splattered all over this, one you should definately check out.

Hostile Faith – Last Remnants of Life (2020)

Hostile Faith
Release date: July 14th, 2020
Label: Life After Death

Well finally this piece of Death Thrash has finally come out, I been waiting to hear this since the band released one track off it a while back and it was worth the wait.

Here on this EP we get four tracks one being a Cancer cover, So as we go into this a nice backwards message at the the start of Blind as this track has a good powerful drive to it and the vocals sound just right as the track thrashes along with a break here and there that ads flare to it but no fucking around here this is death thrash the way it was meant to be, a super great opener to this.

This next one The Disinterment is just as good but really enjoyed that you can hear the crunching bass from the start, and as it goes along it gets even better as it has the pull that grabs you and later gets even better as around the two or so minutes in it just goes off into oblivion as it gets even heavier as it goes into a frenzy of madness, a total killer!

Last Remnants of Life, the title and last original track on here, well this to me was the highlight, this track is so enjoyable as it starts with this heavy slow pounding riff that reminded me of some old-school shit and the lead comes in that I knew I was about to get nailed and I was right it does as it goes into full kill mood and with more tempo changes as it goes along this track is epic! this track put a stamp on the band as they are here to stay and kick your ass.

The Cancer cover C.F.C. does a righteous revamp to it as it rips just like it should a good closer.

To anybody that loves death thrash this is a must, I just hope after this we get a full length as the band has proven with their releases that it should be the next goal, This is only available on tape if you want a physical copy and digital by the band. Surely this will make my top 10 of the year., support fuckers!
