Album: Origins of Plague
Genre: Death\Thrash Metal
Yeah so it’s been a few months. What can I say I’ve been busy.
I’ve been trying to find this gem for a few months now and by chance I re-singed up to eMusic for $0.99 and sure enough Hateform’s 2010 release shows up.
I don’t know where or how I came across their first album “Dominance” (2008) but I played the crap out of it.
Anyway Hateform plays a style of DeathThrash with Groove Metal breakdowns much like Dew-Scented and The Burning.
Good stuff: here
While sifting through the latest batch of Deathcore finds I’ve noticed something that sever bands have in common that is really starting to annoy me. It that Growl-Squeal thing. At first it sounded ok but after listening to 3 or 4 different bands I found it to be a common theme that actually sounds like shit.
And to the 3 people that visit this blog sorry for the lack of updates, I’ve been busy.
Artist: Jesus Martyr
Album: The Black Waters
Genre: Death\Thrash Metal
Jesus Martyr formed in 1994 and split up in 2009 which sucks because these Argentinians crank out a wall of sound that feels like an earth quake of apocalyptic proportions. “The Black Waters”, their final release, clocks in at 32 minutes. The album is a bit short but each track delivers a relentless assault furry.
Feel the furry
Artist: The Burning
Album: Hail The Horde
Genre: Death/Thrash Metal
This is the brand new album from The Burning and it does not disappoint. If you like Konkhra, Daemon or just good fucking Death/Thrash metal then “Hail The Horde” will get your rocks off.

Album: Nothing is Scared
Genre: Death/Thrash Metal – Death N’ Roll
I just realized that my last few posts have been on Fridays which makes sense because my real life job is very VERY busy. Anyway this is the latest release from Death Metal veterans Konkhra which (for lack of a truly creative statement) kick fucking ass!! I have been listening to this for a few months and it just keeps getting better. In fact their entire catalog of music dating as far back as 1990, is amazing which makes me wonder why I’d never heard of them until a few months ago.
Konkhra formed in 1989 in Copenhagen, Denmark and have released 7 full length albums, 3 EP’s, 1 VHS Video and a hand full of demos. During their onslaught of releases their music has swayed from Death/Thrash to Death/Groove to Death N’ Roll and back to their roots of Death Metal.
“Nothing is Scared” opens with George W. Bush giving a fake speech (it’s his voice and words but all from different speeches) that actually sounds like something he would say to his cohorts.
Bla ba bla…check it out for your self.
Genre: Death/Thrash Metal
Evey time I post a band/album I’m always freaking out that this is the best band or album ever or some shit like that. But the truth is that every band or album I post here is the greatest thing in the world at that moment. If I think it sucks then I don’t listen to it and I don’t post it either.
So just this week I discovered Dew-Scented. Yeah sure they’ve been around for a while but I am just now catching on. It’s the usual story; I’m on last.fm and a band recommendations was for Dew-Scented. So I go to their page and read their blurb; German Death & Thrash Metal band. Then I scroll down to the comments and there it is, one of the things that tells me that this band is for me, “If you like Slayer then you’ll like Dew-Scented.” OMFG I love Slayer!! Sold.
So I track dow a copy of their new album and give it a spin. Hmm this is pretty good. So I give it another go. Wow this is really good it kind of sounds like…SLAYER!!! So I listen again. OMFG THIS IS THE LOST SLAYER ALBUM!!! It sounds like Reigning Blood, South of Heaven, Seasons in the Abyss & God Hates Us All but with cookie monster like vocals.
So if you like Slayer then….
Album: Embrace the Fall
Genre: Thrash/Death Metal
HurtLocker is from Chicago, Illinois and they sounds like a cross between Konkhra’s early Death N Roll albums, the new Witchery album and Hatesphere with out the melodic. “Embrace the Fall” is brutal, fast and heavy with an underlying groove that sets them apart from the rest. The opening track “I Am Napalm” sets the stage for a brutal assault of quality metal. Another stand out track is “Release the Sin” which has sounds like it could have been on “Seasons in the Abyss”. Fuck Yeah!
Oh and did I mention that this is another eMusic discovery.
Album: God Less America
Genre: Thrash/Death/Groove Metal
According to my previous post these guys have been at it for 15 years but only released 1 album. Well it looks like they are making up for lost time because these bad mother fuckers are back with a new album which will kick you pussy ass from here to the moon. Pounding, grinding and relentless.
Artist: Slow Death Factory
Album: From The Gutter To Your Ears
Genre: Death/Sludge/Thrash Metal
I found these guys on last.fm and when I went to their site I found that they are giving away their two releases for FREE!! Slow Death Factory is a Danish Metal band that plays some dirty sludgy thrashing metal. I’ve listened to “From The Gutter To Your Ears” at least 5 times today and I could go a few more rounds.
They also have an EP “Music for Tough Guys” available for FREE!! The EP has a dirty unpolished, low budget, “we’re a new band” kind of sound that is ok but their full length kicks ass.
Genre: Punk N’ Roll / Stoner Metal
I’m a lazy fucker so here’s the last.fm description:
Repomen are a heavy stonerrock band from Eindhoven, Netherlands. There members consist of 3 ex-Borehole members (Roel Aben Mo Truijens & Miriam Bekkers) and Peter van Elderen, who is also known as the leadguitarist/leadsinger of the Dutch hard rock’n’roll band ‘Peter Pan Speedrock’. Repomen have a really hard and heavy stoner sound, but often rock & roll influences are recognizable.
I have no clue as to where, when or how this band ended up in my collection but I’m sure glad I stumbled on it today. This is the shit!!
