Aborted – The Necrotic Manifesto

CENTURY MEDIA 2014

Release Date: April 2014

Length: 42:34

Aborted is not the kind of death metal band that simply blends in among the others. These guys from Belgium definitely have something of their own and that hasn’t faded away during their 19 years in existence (even with lineup changes and the fact there is only one original member left). If you have any doubts about whether they can still do it, you should give their newest album ‘The Necrotic Manifesto‘ a try to.

Two years have passed since their previous album ‘Global Flatline’ and there is one thing for sure, the further they go, the more technical they become. More guitar solos, more twisted riffs, a little less fun ‘gory’ stuff and it still sounds like Aborted, still catchy.

The more you listen to this, the more addictive to this aggressive yet technical album you get!  There is another thing to add regarding the music in ‘The Necrotic Manifesto’ and that’s guest vocals. You can hear Vincent Benett (The Acacia Strain) on ‘Your Entitlement Means  Nothing’ and Phlegeton (Wormed) on the extremely fast and memorable track ‘Excremental Veracity’.

Let’s take a look at the album cover. As it is with music, the same goes for cover art – it is so recognizable and really exciting! Again mad surgeon (remember ‘Goremageddon: The Saw and the Carnage Done’ or ‘The Archaic Abattoir’ albums’ covers?), this time with eight hands holding saw, knives and anything that actual mad surgeon might need. He’s standing in between to abandoned building among many skeletons looking up to the cloudy sky. Simple, yet well done and so good courtesy of the great imagination of Swedish artist Par Olofsson .

Reviewers pick: ‘Coffin Upon Coffin’, the 7th track of the album.

This latest album is an even more technical, aggressive, yet serious piece of death metal.

Horncrowned - Defanatus Diabolus Adventus

Horncrowned is one of the most brutal Black Metal bands from Southamerica. This is their fourth full-length, "DEFANATUS (Diabolus Adventus)".

Five years have passed since its last album "Casus Belli Antichritianus", now with better sound and excellent presentation, this album protrudes over the usual concept from southamerican bands.

Aggresive guitars, chaotic vocals and a very fast drums, make this álbum a direct discharge of fiendish energy, undoing beliefs with the unhallowed army. Mixed by Phorgath (from the mighty Enthroned) at Blackout Studio (Belgium), mastered by László Zsolt (Romania) and with the awesome cover artwork released by Kontamination Design (Poland) this album will be regarded as the best in the 13 years career of Horncrowned and as great contribution to the global extreme metal scene.

If you're a fan of brutal & extreme Black metal definitly will enjoy this 46 minutes of Antichristian War Hyms.

Label: Limb Music GmbH
Release date: October 31st, 2014

Label: Limb Music GmbH

Release Date: October 2014

If you like traditional US metal in the style of Dio, Malice, Fifth Angel or Leatherwolf, then you need to grab yourself a copy of the 2nd album from US quartet FireWölfe. It really is that simple and I've no qualms in telling you that this is killer melodic US metal stuff from start to finish which eats all the latest releases from classic bands like IRON MAIDEN or JUDAS PRIEST at breakfast. The brainchild of guitarist Nick Layton - FireWolfe are a guitar heavy beast, intent on ripping your head off with razor sharp riffs and mighty solos. With the addition of singer David Fefolt (Angels Of Babylon) and ace drummer Jay Schellen (Unruly Child) FireWolfe are an unstoppable force, so do yourself a favour and order your copy asap !
