SURGIKILL – Sanguinary Revelations LP – HELLS HEADBANGERS

Death Metal onslaught from US

surgikill---cover.jpg

Released originally in March and now out in vinyl this death metal band is a bulldozer that sees no limits for its own destruction.

Containing 10 tracks of purest noise guided by the old school but with a proper sound, this is a metal salvation.

Opener Sanguiniac is highly toxic metal, so if a poseur you are don’t even get any nearer.

Murderous Thirst has a non-stop drumming with a tremendous wall of noise that is made to torn people apart, it really shows what this band is capable of.

By the third attack Relentless Revenge, the kind of the sound the band nurtures becomes definitely the norm and a nuclear train is no match for the sound they execute here played with magnificent force and hatefulness for the humankind, non-stop death metal madness, no “tech”, only a brutal form of inherited revulsion… from hell!!!

There is no stop and no sympathy for anyone’s eardrums in the track Psychopathic Awakenings which is raw as fuck and certainly the death metal kiddos won’t get such aggressiveness and won’t never understand why a band can be so cruel in their approach of their own music.

The rest of the tracks follow suit and there’s not much to say about it, but certainly some won’t do it until the end of the opus.

Surgikill is a band that totes has my vote and will deserve several spins, totally infernal and relentless that is what I used to call death metal back in the day.

Sanguinary Revelations LP is out TODAY on HELLS HEADBANGERS.

Black Funeral – Ankou and the Death Fire CD/LP – Iron Bonehead / Dark Adversary

Staying true to traditional Black Metal.

Black-Funeral---Ankou-CD-cover

Old is cool and every fucking body knows that. But Black Funeral never betrayed the essence of pure black metal, a thing that is rare in the era of PC shoegaze pseudo-depressive fad. No melodies, no cool production, only the traditional sound from the deep abyss of lo-fi destruction.

With all technology available is impossible to imagine a band that can record something that remembers the old days, but somewhat Black Funeral, the original USBM band managed to do that.

The opener Shadows of Obour is an ode to the atonal rifferama, sunken guitars, no audible bass (if there’s any) and yet it’s an extremely interesting track that develops with gusto for Darkthrone-like style, never-changing tempo and repetitive phrases a là A Blaze in the Northern Sky. A chef d’oeuvre lemme say.

The title track is more like an earworm, but don’t get me wrong, this is as primitive as one can get. The work is a pure destructive invocation from netherworld, with compassed drums, with a puny yet audible ride cymbals.

Another highlight is The Morrigan (Battle Crow) that starts as mid-tempo black metal and explodes itself into a brutal form of primeval black metal.

Black Funeral is alive and kicking, which is rare nowadays, but heck that’s the real deal: amongst one thousand bands claiming they play “black metal” is good to separate the wheat from the chaff. Black Funeral is a premiere band for premiere die-hards, any doubt about that?

Ankou and the Death Fire will be available in LP and CD with different covers on September 9th  on Iron Bonehead / Dark Adversary

PROFANATICA – The Curling Flame of Blasphemy (CD, LP, TAPE) – Hells Headbangers

The perfection comes in forms of iteration.

profanatica---curling-cover

Profanatica is no strange name for the old cultists and die-hard metallers. They have been around for quite a time although they haven’t achieved the “glorious path” of mainstream propaganda preferring to stay put in the truest underground.

Their 2016 album is the legacy of all the things the band has been working through. Mid-tempo songs, low-pitched vocals, blasphemous invocations, minimal editing, simplest form of songwriting, and yet The Curling Flame of Blasphemy is essential for those who thing they are “evil”.

Ordained in Bile and March to Golgotha are finest samples of low-file production allied with veteran musicianship, to create a simple but extreme efficient form of offensive music.

The track Black Hymna evokes everything primitive, it must be a true inspiration for headbangers of today.

Host Over Cup is a bunch of blasphemous screams in the background like curses from the eternal abyss of destruction.

While Rotten Scriptures continues its binge towards the chasm of desolation, Yahweh Rejected is terminated without edition to give place to Bleed Heavenly Kingdom so my question is: how much primitive one can get?

This album has 10 tracks that are practically identical which I appreciate because if one song pulls my attention, automatically the others do.

 Honestly if you don’t enjoy Profanatica, you can stick to your post-rock joke. Leave the Satanic stuff to real ones.

Aggression against Megadeth in Paraguay.

Paraguayan audience went postal at the last Megadeth presentation.

According to Paraguayan TV show Día a Día the last concert of Megadeth at Sport Colombia stadium in Asunción, Paraguay was catastrophic. Dave Mustaine and his cohorts only played four songs before calling off the concert because people started invading the place and security personnel couldn’t prevent vandalism from the public. It’s unclear why such aggression against the band and after they went off of the stage the audience started throwing bottles and other stuff against it. 

On Twitter Mustaine said:

“Dear Paraguay, after all three barricades broke and hundreds of fans crushed three security guards, almost killing one female fan, we regretfully had to cancel the show. Please understand that your safety is just as important as ours and after all the security went in The pit someone ran onto the stage, a bottle was thrown, and we’ll let you know as soon as we can reschedule and come back. Lo Siento This is out of our hands and we will make sure when we return to use a different venue, security and promoter. Again, Lo siento mucho.”

Watch the images below.

Today they are playing at Luna Park in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
