Chthonic Cult – I Am the Scourge of Eternity – Iron Bonehead

Obscure and intolerant cult from Poland and Germany

chthonic-cult---cover

Chthonic Cult is an unknown name formed by D.S.P. and Hyperborean (Njord from Winds of Hyperborea, ex-Flame of War).

Judging from the bands cited, intransigence is paramount. No compromise or diplomatic conversations here dude.

The sound is extremely heavy and muddy and the songs are notably long.

Only four tracks clocking in almost 50 minutes.

As the Void Beckons shows a blend of death and black overly raw, but intense and although the phrases are long, they change accordingly. The sound of guitar is brutally heavy and hissing at the same time, the vocals are dubious between harsh and guttural, or something in between.

The Abyss Triumphant throws one back to the abyss of old school extreme metal, a gift from the gods of old, harrowing and browbeating sound with hints to hardcore or old Autopsy if you will, with lots of bedeviling metal! Only for the old and cold.

Asunder! imparts some Morbid Angel riffs, more black than death, the first phrase is pure iteration but soon the godawful blusters take up the soundscape and the bane is complete.

Last song which conveys the album title is the most cantankerous of the album: insistent lashings on the drum set, a wave of toxic riffs, and bellows from the guts of hell.

Arrgghh, this is only indicated for the most die hard headbangers over there. If you’re used to “normal” metal you’ll die while listening to Chthonic Cult. Beware!

I Am the Scourge of Eternity is out now on Iron Bonehead

Sanktuary – Winter’s Doom – Self-Release

Extreme and excellent heavy metal from Canada

Album-Cover---Sanktuary---Winter's-Doom---2016

Man, this is pure heavy metal, true heavy metal, untouchable heavy metal, only for fans of heavy metal, true fans, non-compromising fans.

Sanktuary hails from Whitehorse, in the province of Yukon, far from Canuck centres and according to them the Canadian Siberia.

This is their second full length, but they are active since 2008. This is the time for them to get their place under the sun.

This fantastic album opens up with Space Race, a kind of non-speedy Living Death. Although naturally one can say they are, like Fenriz like to say, Canadian Metal, for me they sound more Germanic in nature. Anyway the wind blows. The vocals are pure 1980’s , lots of solos, catchy phrases, a natural born classic.

Wind is the Wind follows suit with the flawless sound, a blast from the past, similar to the first one, so there’s not much to add.

Of course a band of this calibre (note that I’m acting British today, even if MSWord correct my “English fault” to CALIBER) won’t disappoint and won’t deliver rehashed sounds, so the third track is a killer mid-to-fast tempo called Vermin Lord, lengthy in structure, but first class in composition, a helluva song, delicious to the headbanger ears, hell why I’ve never heard of them before?

The title-track has an ounce of Thrash Metal, maybe because the quasi-harsh vocals of Alan Binger. Great onset, and over again an imperative track.

Open Your Eyes goes further into the thrash of Overkill, Metal Church and Annihilator. The funny thing is that it isn’t an abrupt movement, normally the tracks sound the same as from the beginning of the cd (inferring that if you like the first tracks you’ll like these ones as well), but a subtle change of tempo and high-pitched solos gives the path of the album from now on.

And that is a path of violence of course like in the thrasher Corpse Blockade and now the game inverts: they become a thrash metal band with hints of heavy… Funny eh? Anyhow, the earbleeding solos are compulsory and the metal binge doesn’t die.

Closer is the icing in the cake: Maximum Authority is like a primitive Sacred Reich. Raw in its approach and hateful in its execution the song shows that they are no friends of modern technology.

All in all this is a flawless CD, the most underrated band in the moment and I’ll try to remember them in my list of the “best of” of 2016. Listen to it. Like it. Or go die!

Winter’s Doom is out now and it is Self-Released

Em Ruínas has been known for its incredible live performances and they played even in London some time ago. Judging by the latest release From The Speed Metal Graves, one can wait Germanic assault, lots of catchy phrases and intransigent Speed Metal.

The art of the single was created by Thiago Boller. Click on the image to see it in full size.
