Perverted Ceremony- "Sabbat of Behezäel"

Listened to a few Mortician songs in the car before this. It's a heavy evening!

Perverted Ceremony is rather enjoyable. I do dig that album. The EP and split with Finland's Witchcraft are both good, also.

Sororicide- the Entity

Slayer- South of Heaven

 

Arguably, Slayer's most underrated album.

Unholy Archangel- "Blessed by Aris"

This band is fucking awesome. Very chaotic Hellenic black/death metal. 

They have a new split out with Hammergoat, but the CD is messed up. All of Hammergoat's tunes have digital scratching happening throughout.

Unholy Archangel also have a comp CD out that has the demo material, Blessed by Aris and other goodies.

Their album, 'Obsessed by War' is simply pummeling!

Main man, Iapetos666 is a nice cat, also.

That's unfortunate about the split. And sick, you've been in contact with Iapetos?

NP:

Schutzstaffel- "Befreiungsschlag"

Heavy ass RAC. Not to be confused with the black metal band from Brazil of the same name.

Yes. I first got in touch not too long after 'Blessed by Aris' was released on cassette. I've interviewed him, also.

He is also involved with Chaosbaphomet, which is more Hellenic sickness, though quite different to Unholy Archangel.

He's fairly easy to get in touch with. Contact info listed in every release I own - sans the split mentioned above, oddly enough.

I want to also give credit to Agisilaos, as he writes all those lovely Unholy Archangel melodies.

(Now playing) Irreverent - Blasphemous Crucifix Profanation (CD)

That's awesome dude. That's one thing that's so great about extreme metal-- you can personally connect with so many of the bands. I'll have to check out Chaosbaphomet, cheers! Also, great choice with Irreverent. They are one of a select few death metal bands that I consider to be true purveyors of 'metal of death'. Utter darkness!

NP: 

Brutal Begude- "Radikal Musik"

This is pretty damn simple and repetitive, but it's heavy as fuck and all parts work as one cohesive unit to get the message across. 

Before this was:

Better Dead than Red- "Front Line"

Been on a big hatecore/rac kick and this hit the spot nicely. Sometimes the agression of hardcore can be more pummeling than that of extreme metal, in a way.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
