Voidd - Desperate Truth - 1993
Voidd - Texas Chainsaw - 1996
01. Voidd - Desperate Truth, 1993 CD Album
     Evil Records - 666-VD1
02. Voidd - Texas Chainsaw, 1996 CD Album
     Eclipse Records - ECR-06
The magic of Japanese zeristic virulence never becomes obsolete. Faithful to the tradition, Voidd made more of that nasty thrashing punk death that connects to 90s S.O.B. and Hellchild. The first album delivers full speed, almost-grinding hardcore that reeks of the 80s hostility, while Texas Chainsaw slows down a bit and opens up to the metalized rocking hardcore punk groove that caters to fans of Chainsaw, Raging Fury, Paintbox, while maintaining the abrasive Hellchild ear splitting. Totalizer of the thrashcore bliss!
FLAC rips of the following albums, that seem to be more in the rockabilly vein, yes, and of the double CD reissue of Desperate Truth are very welcome.
Today starts the summer pause of Zer, or of the poser. The Church returns in 3 weeks, next post on August 17th or 18th.

Ratos De Porão - Necropolítica - 2022
01. Ratos De Porão - Necropolítica, 2022 CD Album
     F.O.A.D. Records - F.O.A.D. 275
Eight years later, they are back with another nasty crossover thrash grenade. There is no deviation from their trademark sound: fast, nasty and short. The closing song has a mid-tempo cold metal vibe which could also be found on releases like Just Another Crime, and the punk vibe is always present: this is another classic RDP album that could have been released 30 years ago - this is not a derogatory remark, it is a praise to the persistence and tenacity that RDP has deployed across the decades. The lyrics on the second song are troublingly stupid or they could be sarcastic, but never mind, anyway they are in Portuguese and spitted with the full venom required to make this crossover so effective. Another triplazering riffing expo from the experts!

A questionable logo, some scary artwork and that melodic style of Swedish death metal that is not very popular at the Church should have redirected Sarcasm to /dev/null. But despite the sonic connections to At The Gates, Merciless, Unanimated, or Dissection (none of which will appear on this website), Sarcasm fill the Church with bliss. The echoes of Dawn, early Sentenced and The Crown may have tilted the balance towards total zer, because this output is not just ok, it is an absolute delectation of the wicked. Fast, tight and violent delivery augmented by stellar execution and above all murderously catchy riffs (Upon The Mountains Of Glory!) provide this amazing combination of refinement and brutality. The guitar duels shine from within the deepest ravages of blasts and screams, while the percussive rhythmic precision builds up a wall of dynamic relentlessness. It is a great skill to combine so naturally the ferocity of black death and the classic superiority of Judas Priest. Leather, knives and brains! Triplazering killing machine of the total burning metal!

In an old rusty pot, stir the bones of Sarcofago and the meat of the first two Sepultura, season with the innards of 80s Grave and add the tongue, eyeballs and liver of the first two Sentenced demos, let rot for a decade, cook for another 5 years and serve boiling hot. Delicious Repugnant! Much more tasteful than that high fructose Ghost swindle that was then started by the singer. Smart business move, questionable sonic devolution, let us revive the Repugnant graveyard. Triplazering thrashing death til rezer!

Sabazz - The Intolerable Absence Of Evil - 2000
Sabazz - Your Weight In Blood And Vows - 2001

     Handa&Company - HC-011
02. Sabazz - Your Weight In Blood And Vows, 2001 CD Album
     Handa&Company - HC-015
Sabazz deliver nasty, brutish and short thrash metal with the punk roughness of Gauze and Crow, which some Sabbaz members were part of. The two albums sound very raw and it adds to their already menacing vibe. No Megadeth here, only head-smashing fast thrash that would have been at home on Wild Rags records in 1989. The Church highly recommends this repelling, abrasive and eardrum-corroding kind of crossover that fans of Deathtoll and Clandestined cannot bypass without risking excommunication. Triplazering bleeding thrash til zer!

We always need more doom. We always need more doom full of death from the caverns of the glorious early 90s. These three monsters from Consecration faithfully carry the torch of that epic delivery of post-war agony that borders on the funeral without dropping the death metal riffing and the crushing groove. The supermassive spirit of Winter and early Anathema animate this beast and the Church finds here yet another reason to celebrate after the earthquakes of Göden and Temple Of Void. We need more of this for the imminent end times deserve their historical soundtrack. Triplazering doom 'til the whole black hole swallows all into the grave!
