Temple Of Void

Temple Of Void - Of Terror And The Supernatural - 2014
Temple Of Void - Lords Of Death - 2017
01. Temple Of Void - Of Terror And The Supernatural, 2014 CD Album Limited Edition
     Rain Without End Records - RWE005
02. Temple Of Void - Lords Of Death, 2017 CD Album
     Shadow Kingdom Records - SKR127CD
Doom, death and more doom! I came across this band searching for new stuff during a random youtube browsing hour and was ordering the CD before the end of the first half of the song. Absolutely first class demonstration of total doom! Not the funeral sort, more like the super powered crunch of early Paradise Lost hybridized with Massacre and Bolt Thrower without the fast parts. Of Terror is a perfect introduction, and this perfection is perfected on the unbelievable Lords Of Death, the masterpiece of peak doom propelled by a sound production larger than the universe and addictive songs that stay with you for days. At least with me, and for months, like new classics. Temple Of Void possess the gift of song writing on top of the knowledge of the architecture of massive groove and they go far beyond the expression of plain force. The art of doom!

Thrash til zer! Fans of classic 80s crossover & hardcore are well served by S&F, who paid tribute to the whole genre on this handful of great records that strictly adhere to the rules in sound, style, song titles, bandanas and artwork (especially the back of the sleeves). In short, if you are old, fat and a fan of famous two-or-three-letters-acronym bands, or young, fat and a fan of Holier Than Thou? and of a rawer version of the Iron Reagan | Violator thing, SAF is your next stop. They sound like the classics so much you almost start believing in reincarnation. Fast, punchy and to the point triplazering homage to the legends!

Tetragrammacide - Primal Incinerators Of Moral Matrix

Tetragrammacide - Primal Incinerators Of Moral Matrix - 2017 01. Tetragrammacide - Primal Incinerators Of Moral Matrix, 2017 CD Album
     Iron Bonehead Productions - none
Monsters exists, and they live among us, in India. They are invincible and they make a lot of noise. Proof: Tetragrammacide. I was attracted by this album title last year and have not ceased being mesmerized since by the sonic apocalypses it delivers. You thought you knew how far metal music could stretch its boundaries and now they moved further again. be amazed. The black death that strikes the listener like the thunder from the other side of the zeriverse also induces shining awe and instant addiction. One must play it again, now! Too bad these lads did not have the opportunity to erase Trudeau from the physical plane during his recent trip to India. If you are into the Dark Descent / Iron Bonehead trademark metal massacre, do not miss Tetragrammacide, champions of the deathiverse in ultriplazering super condensation from the caverns of gigawatts!

     Not Very Nice - NVNCD-01
Let's get back to real music, can't leave this page headlined by Intense Mutilation. I thought I had posted this D.E.Z. CD long ago, but it was only the Suck Your Soul EP. So here we go with the exquisite and complete collection of the known and unknown recordings of D.E.Z., including a 30 minutes bonus live show. If you are into typical Japanese hardcore thrash, these Zombies are damn exciting: they perfectly unleash the fury of all the codes of the 80s japcore established by the likes of Gauze, Lip Cream, Deathside, Systematic Death and all the legends of that scene. Fast, raw, pissed and crude thrash attacks for triplazering effect! The thrashiverse is bleeding!

Intense Mutilation

Intense Mutilation - Safe Sex - 1989 01. Intense Mutilation - Safe Sex, 1989 Vinyl LP Album
     New Renaissance Records - NRR55
After the average, let's dive into the horrendous. This record is pure shit. The music is very bad noisy messy sloppy weak punk thrash. It is recorded like shit and they can't play. There are no riffs. The "lyrics" are supposed to be funny, but they are impotent. The "jokes" fall so flat it hurts a deaf person, and I am a very easy audience for bad jokes. It all sounds like Jackass tried to release a follow-up to S.O.D.'s Speak English Or Die and missed the mark with an error margin of 9,040 miles. Intense Mutilation is to Sore Throat what Crass is to Pink Floyd. What were NRR thinking? Why waste resources and time on this? It must have been a bet, or a money-laundering scheme (in that case, I loudly applaud). This is the right soundtrack for an antifa gathering, the awfulverse hath crapped again!

A Taake post was certainly not planned, but since the young fascist apes known as "antifa" managed to get the Taake tour canceled, it was inevitable.
That being said, I do not really care about Taake. They are (he is) not bad, as in "standard second or third wave black metal" rehashing the Darkthrone formula, including the pictures in hooded capes, with trees in the snow. Nothing remotely new nor pushing the limits of "extreme" goes on here. I do not need extreme or new all the time, but at least the blossoming of an addiction. Taake leaves me cold (too old, too cold), and I'll return to Cultes Des Ghoules. But for the sake of "antifa", today is Taake day.

If you're in the mood for thrashcore (aka fastcore, but I hate this term), welcome to Vöetsek's angry output. Here comes a semi-endless supply of short bursts of noisy hardcore to make your ears happier than your neighbors. In my expert and absolutely not humble opinion, the best release of this lot is the Infernal Command album which displays the crossover turn the band took. Of course, this is delivered in short bursts of super pissed crossover of the kind that the almighty Golers like to generate. Awesome! And Infernal Command also comes with the best sound production compared to their earlier stuff. I have seen no new release from them since 2008, anybody knows what's up? A couple of other as pissed yet longer albums would be very welcome. Thrash til crossozer triplazer!

Requested, zerred. I mail ordered the first album because of its raving reviews, and was pretty disappointed (no pre-screening through youtube in 1984): I had expected something more along the lines of Satan and Mercyful Fate, but Burning Star was less exciting, it was "only" another version of the Priest / Maiden formula. Ah, but after that, on Remnants of War they greatly enhanced the heaviness of their output and all was well, I was hooked on their heavy heavy metal. That is phase one. Upon their return in 2007, phase 2 started with a rerecording album of 80s songs (Pasts of the Sin), well well well, and then, bam, they went on full thrash metal with the last four albums. They did not loose that melodic vibe that always pleases fans of Metal Church, the songs are still as catchy and crunchy, but they added a strong Death Angel angle to their arsenal and it makes for a handful of very strong albums, especially the latest one Vampiro. If you are into the likes of Flotsam & Jetsam and Forbidden, phase 2 of the Helstar catalog is a mandatory stop. If you are into more regular heavy metal, phase 1 is a must - except maybe for the average, demo-sounding Multiples of Black. But really, the whole collection is greater than great. More headbanging for the young and the old! All these years, all this metal!

Get ready to get burned with these tools of short, sharp, intense, vicious crossover thrash. If you are into Voetsek, Golers and the almighty Accüsed, this album is right up your alley. No there is no major musical revolution here, yes there is plenty of high octane cranial and vertebral stress test - aka headbanging. Drool til thrash! Brilliant triplazering no-nonsense thrash attack from the awesomeverse!

80s Italian hardcore always rules! And all is well because Ifix Tcen Tcen do exactly carry the torch of that particular sound. The torch of the sound! I find many connections with Impact and Indigesti. I for an I. The Liquid Party LP is a collection of covers with a couple of their own songs. From the Beatles to Madonna to Blondie and Patrick Hernandez and Franky Goes To Hollywood, let us revisit the radio hits that played in your childhood (if you were born before VHS tapes) at the speed of 80s Italian hardcore. Awesome! Oltre La Collina then offers a short burst of that classy - guess what - 80s Italian hardcore in 8 originals and one Le Freak cover because Le freak, c'est chic. More awesomeness! 80s Italian hardcore rules until the end of the zeriverse!
