"Age of Perversion", the 2nd album by France's Offending, is a cruel beast. Ripping solos and pummeling blasts reign down like a hammer on the listener through 9 tracks of pure-sombre death.
Heavy Metal Tribune [80/100]:
French brutal death metal outfit Offending this year releases their sophomore full length album Age of Perversion. Featuring 3 ex and current members of the experimental/technical black metal band Asmodee certainly got me rather interested, with myself being quite a fan of the band’s works and the technical abilities of the musicians involved. It would certainly be great then if these musicians are able to bring forth their capabilities into Offending, and make Age of Perversion a nice brutal yet technically enjoyable record.
Along with the blasphemous and Satanic themes that the band has written on the album, Offending matches these with the quality of the music that is on the album, with opening track Infested by His Burden easily misleading curious listeners into thinking that this were another black metal release with the haunting introductory riffs. But as the track begins proper, the band’s style of brutal death metal is clear, first with the relentless battery of drummer Vincent, and also with the crushing riffs of Gropoil and Manu, who throughout the record retains that slight black metal influence in their playing style, throwing in bits and pieces of it whenever they deem fit, helping to enhance the overall atmosphere in the music. The technical side of the band are often displayed in the instrumental section, with Gropoil and Manu often unleashing complex riffs and bassist Yoni following it with ease. Vincent’s drumming also does not disappoint, as he easily switches between styles and time signatures without any hesitation, allowing for a brutal experience without compromising on the technicality. At times, Offending sounds like a fusion between Hate Eternal and Suffocation, especially with the aggressive and spiteful growls of vocalist Jesus, and the cheesy moments like the riffing style in the middle of Modern Enslavement.
Like already mentioned, what made Offending‘s Age of Perversion really enjoyable was that slight tinge of black metal that the band has infused in their music, allowing for the music of the band to stand out from other brutal death metal releases with the higher focus on the atmosphere rather than simply presenting crushing riffs after crushing riffs. Songs like Within This World even contains moments that would have comfortably fit with Polish black/death bands like Behemoth and the likes. This is further heard not only in the melodies of the lead guitar lines of Gropoil and Manu, but also in the guitar tone, often sending chills down the listener’s back. Religion Depravity even provides a slightly mellower and melodic moment in the middle of the 40-minute onslaught, and is a nice, short break with the soaring guitar lines and slightly slower pace, though the darkness in the band’s music is still present on the track, and is not too far deviant from the band’s other tracks. Overall, Age of Perversion is an extremely enjoyable record, and the nice balance between brutality, technicality and melody would certainly appeal to fans of any style of death metal.
Malaysian death metal soldiers, Humiliation's new release "Turbulence From the Deep" is Deepsend Records debut album. Their fourth studio album sees the band continue on their path of mass destruction while forging a doom-laden approach to their death metal arsenal.
It should be no surprise the band warship at the tank known as Bolt Thrower. Musically, Humiliation focus on mid-tempo headbangers with heavy anthems of war, lack of humanity and minimal guitar solos. Turbulence From the Deep sees the band shift to a more doom/death Asphyx approach to soundwriting. Eleven tank-heavy headbangers to assault your ears too. The Malaysian hellbrigade have unleashed a powerful necksnapper of an album that will surely become a staple in death's unholy collection.

After their successfull "Empty bottles & wasted nights"-Album, IN OTHER CLIMES are back with their third and long awaited full length "Leftover". After seven EPs and Albums the steamroller returns with eleven tracks mixing Metal-, Thrash-, Hardcore- and Punk-influences with groove, Rock'n'Roll-solos and catchy choruses. "Leftover" is a huge step for IN OTHER CLIMES showing the true potential of the band built through the years. Being one of the most active French bands and well-known for their video clips, IN OTHER CLIMES gained a strong international fan base through the years while touring all across the globe (Europe, USA, Brazil) and sharing stages with bands such as Down, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Hatebreed, Entombed, Walls Of Jericho, Comeback Kid, just to name a few. IN OTHER CLIMES are too heavy for the Hardcore Kids and to punchy for the Metalheads. But when the show begins, a true blast of hate and revolt comes to minds and hearts, changing the whole crowd and band into one voice screaming: "ONE LIFE, ONE CHANCE, NO FUCKIN' REGRETS!"
The earth is destroyed and mankind escapes into the depth of the sea. But the struggle for survival never ends and so new societies, the obsession for authority, anger and passion continue to exist. It's a story inspired by the deep sea which ICHOR use on "Depths" to mesmerize their listeners and fans. The band has entered the famous Hertz Studios in Białystok/Poland to record their new album - a studio which is also responsible for albums of bands like Behemoth, Decapitated and Vader. ICHOR also recorded their last album Benthic Horizion there and underlined with the renewed choice their affinity to the strong and brutal sound that makes this studio so famous. ICHOR have recorded an album that unites all musical USPs of this band: American death metal-oriented guitar riffs on compact drumming, occasionally broken by mid-tempo passages and some Black Metal -Parts, but always energetic and on the highest technical level. In elegiac and all-crushing blast beat outbreaks ICHOR dive into the deep sea and take the listener on a journey through an audiophile apocalyptic fantasy story.
Trier, Germany’s oldest city, is now enriched by another attraction. Ichor was founded there in April 2008 by members of other established local bands. It was their ambition to make pure death metal that mixes technical, melodic and modern elements. Their first proof of performance is now coming over the world via Bastardized Recordings: “The Siege” offers an complex yet brutal mixture of modern Death Metal in the vein of Bands such as The Black Dahlia Murder, Despised Icon and Suicide Silence. Nothing less but a perfect production done by Phil Hillen from the SU2-Studio and the mastering by Simon from War From A Harlots Mouth is responsible for the massive wall of sound Ichor create on their first full-length. Ichor – The Siege. Kill or be killed!
Since their official formation in early 2007, Lower Hell are an unstoppable nuclear hurricaine rushing through Europe, leaving nothing but wasteland. Imagine a wild mixture of fast Thrash Metal with a fine melodic edge and a well-meant dose of rock combined with some really good ideas for those who love Bands like Lamb of God, Darkest Hour or even (no joke!) Dragonforce. Hellevator offers everything the modern Metalhead wants to hear: Unbelieveable fast doublebass-drumming, hypnotic solos and – of course – a bunch of perfect arranged sonic hurricane.
For some reason, metalcore and melodic death metal seem to go hand in hand often these days. While most examples of this that I’ve heard fall very short in the realm of originality, Lower Hell seems to be the exception with “Hellevator.” While the name is pretty cheesy, the music is very well composed and while the band tends to play in circles in some parts, this album is a solid piece of melodic and pulse-pounding metal.
I think what helps “Hellevator” transcend the redundancy that metalcore tends to bring is the fact that Lower Hell manages to mix the genres very tastefully. The melody is well interspersed and manages to become very catchy, especially in later parts of the album. A good portion of the music is driven by thrash riffs, but Lower Hell manages to cram more than enough Gothenburg influence into the music, while still maintaining a bit of the metalcore sound. “Aftershow Party in a Casket” is by far the highlight of the album, with a powerful mid-section that features some very emotionally driven guitar work. The track is very well written and contains lots of variation without losing the core structure. “Nothing Personal, Just Business” has an interesting classic rock tinge that maintains lots of the melodeath sound, yet brings something a little different. The title track features a beautiful strings intro and becomes very evocative. Occasional bass solo work is sprinkled throughout the tracks and adds a lot to the music.
Unfortunately, not every track is quite successful. “Tonight I’m Coming Home” starts well with a beautiful strings intro, but devolves into a pretty typical metalcore sound. The transition is not quite successful and pretty much ruins the song. “This Is Vengeance” attempts some stop-start guitar work and time signature changes, but falls short and doesn’t really fit with the rest of the album. Some sections devolve into an oft-used metalcore formula, and while they definitely detract from the album, the awesome melodic riffing that is present in most of the tracks makes up for it. Some parts could be heavier, but it’s not like the sound is over-the-top clean anyway.
Lower Hell’s “Hellevator” was a surprising album for me. The band manages to traverse genres, particularly metalcore and melodic death metal, very well. While “Hellevator” certainly isn’t a perfect album by any stretch of the imagination, it definitely contains some solid metal. The majority of the riffing is quite righteous, and while I may not jam this one repeatedly, it’s definitely worth a listen.
Highs: Efficient mix of metalcore and melo-death.
Lows: "Tonight I'm Coming Home" and "This Is Vengeance" fizzle out.
Bottom line: Though some parts don't deliver, this album mixes metalcore and melodic death metal very well.
