At last! Exceptional crop of new or complementary meganoise today! I am acquiring the Nuclear oputput in reverse chronological order, here comes the penultimate album Jehovirus, as much a Slayer clone as the ripping Formula For Anarchy, maybe a little less intense, still absolutely headbanging, great stuff! Now for the new stuff: Tetsu Arrey were already back in 2014 with another load of their juicy hardcore punk, still very much under the umbrella of Poison Idea, Nippon style - to be consumed avidly. More Japanese destruction with the latest Birushanah: I might say "more doom", but it would put an unfair limit on what they do. it is slow and mesmerizing, and also very intensely engaging through their trademark cyclone of burning sounds. Perfection in the doomnado! NB: I was too lazy to enter the CD version on Discogs, this is not the vinyl rip. Time for total death: Putrevore attack the meat with a successor to the merciless Macabre Kingdom of 2012 with these awesome Tentacles Of Horror. Complete crushing in true Grave format! Complete winner of straightforward dirty sleazy catchy deathgasm! Kill again! Now the one that was the most anticipated appearance on this blog is the new deadly, invincible release by the thrash metal masters Gotsu-Totsu-Kotsu. This album is the most perfect prototype of modernized thrash massacre one can dig from the bowels of the underground. Incredible energy, addictive monster riffs, relentless pummeling, irrepressible vocal invasion and these unmatched bass lines: it is all there, and more. Another step upward from their previous black diamonds! With the perfect production and artwork, your meat must now surrender. Bow down to the ultimate death thrash FUCK YEAH!!! Darkthrone are also back in great shape. The Arctic Thunder returns to their more primal side, in comparison to the fantastic heavy metal-charged epicness of The Underground Resistance. First class black ashes to ashes, dead dust to dust! However it is eclipsed by the new monument from Bethlehem. This unbelievable thing was totally unexpected from me, and it reaches new altitudes in the zeriverse of evilgasm. This album is only too good to be true : old fashioned Bethlehem rejuvenated by a new line-up surrounding Bartsch with all the incisive riffing, massive tanks of grave rhythms, crazy female vokills into the trademark hypnotism and non-detachable melodies that is Bethlehem's secret weapon. Welcome the return of the mortal heavy blackness ultimatizer!!! FUCK JA!!! And Onslaught grace us with a killer live release that surpasses the previous killer live release of 2009 - old songs, new songs, non-stop thrashing, exponential riffs and thermonuclear devastation of the planet earth! The Poles in Acid Drinkers are back too with a new collection of thrashing metal in their own fashion - it rocks, it rolls and it cancels again any attempt by Metallica to remain relevant (yeah there was new Metallica too, do not waste your time and drink this acid instead). Acid Drinkers party! The Levitation Hex offers us a new and outstanding continuation to their amazing debut, which confirms at the same time the similitude and the departure from a simple continuation of Alchemist. Cohesion is a masterpiece of Voivodian size. I used already too many time the words "awesome" and "amazing" today but what am I supposed to say about such a grand album? It rocks you to death in a desert full of agile scorpions that inhabit dried up skulls of vanquished beasts, this is what it is. Superior and ripe for manic compression. Then there is the new OvO: non-metal noise for lovers of noise that is not metal but still mincing and gritting and possessing. Less doom than before, but more nerve splitting and meat chewing. Their new sonic experiments will only dissolve other parts of thy corpse. Also completely unexpectedly, a live release by Razor just surfaced and those, like me, who feared a crappy bootleg can stop anguishing and start thrashing. This is an official release and it rips from start to finish. You have not heard Razor that fast and furious! Most of the hits are there in such a deadly fashion that you will play the album twice in a row! A-MA-ZING classic thrash attack! 2017 is the return of Power Trip... and it is a trip into the most powerful thrash metal of the new generation! They surpass here the already overwhelming class of Manifest Decimation. This Logic is even more intense and heavier while retaining clear distinctions between songs. Short, sharp, perfect reformulation of the Cro-Mags riffing and hammering from Best Wishes with the heaviness of Obituary and Onslaught and a singer that could fit in Ringworm. Killer thrashing rezer!! And finally, let us welcome the new black monoliths from Cultes Des Ghoules: the mcd features a couple of nasty songs that serve as a great introduction to the incredible extension of the darkness on Coven. First, this spectacular album comes into a fantastic digibook, but more essentially crushes the listener into the crypts of x rays with a truly epic black metal opera. But no, fear not the synths, keyboards and clean, uber produced approach, no, this is Cultes Des Ghoules! This is fucking dirty, bleeding, decaying and haunted by the ghosts of a thousand expert beasts with horns! Possessed by the eternal black death forever corpsezerrer!!!

  1. Way cool! New Birushanah and GTK! Thanks!
    The Bethlehem Album is totally insane. Onielar from Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult on vocals - you know you'll get something *slightly* unhinged out of that one. Highly recommended for everyone who likes their Metal with a twist of crazyness.
    And a Razor Live Album? I didn't even know they were still a thing. As long as it's got a lot of early stuff on it, I'm gonna be happy.

    Merci beaucoup!

  2. Wow, slow down, what have you been on lately? I'm here only listening and still can't cope with all your output.

    1. Yeah this post was planned in December, but he GTK took ages to be delivered and in the meantime the new releases piled-up...
      Too much is not enough!

  3. - Thanks a lot for the Power Trip album...

  4. Out of genuine curiosity, I am wondering... how may one rate the content of this post as "mediocre"?
    Are all 15 releases simultaneously that bad, in all their stylistic diversity?

  5. too lourd to be true

  6. Outstanding post! I can only imagine the post better if somehow you found a new Amebix release.
