Ejecutor have teamed up with Poland’s Throneum for this special split in memory of NecroTerror (bass player for Ejecutor), who passed away on September 11, 2021. and both bands are two different genres, so it was interesting to hear what was offered here, the 3 tracks from Throneum are bombastic the two originals they contribute here really punishing Trois frères is some really off the wall shit that I had to listen to a few times to get the feel for the whole thing and it continues on Kaang the Praying Mantis as this has a more straight forward feel to it with a ripping lead in it and my pick for their best one, they end their half with a cover of I Wanna Be Your Dog by The Stooges and if you heard the original this is way over the top so be prepared.
Ejecutor is whole new thing when it comes on the opener Armaggedon is just a crushing piece that you can hear that sound this band has been delivering since they started, the chorus of Armaggedon! will get stuck in your brain, love it! La entidad is more intense from the start but has some breaks in it but it hammers down as this fucker is mean as hell, the drumming oh here really comes to light and solid as fuck.
Ritual de protección is one of those tracks the band have gotten a feeling for of spreading a message and they do here it’s short and sweet and the point is set. And they finish with Primordial (Mortuary Drape cover) and they do a great job on it that topped this release to a great end.
A great tribute to our fallen comrade, the mix of styles from both bands might not be for everybody but the Ejecutor is a must for the fans of the band, hopefully we get more from them next year.
