Krig Target: Human, Mission: Destroy

Krig, a Brazilian death metal band, just released their album, Target: Human, Mission:Destroy, and it's an excellent release! Totally brutal and unforgiving! I was blown away because I've heard some of their older songs and thought they were alright so I wasn't expecting much from them. Boy, I was VERY wrong and the album is full of brutal death metal with excellent vocals. I love the songs Fast Food and Beautiful Mutilation. Excellent lyrics and excellent music! I really love the guitarworks...just plainly great. I think the only thing they need to tweak with is bass. Could've create better bass riffs and have the drums accompany it better.

Overally I give this album 8 out of 10

Divulgence Demo 2009

Divulgence is a new band out of South Carolina and play death metal. They just got signed by Bombworks Records and are working on a full length that hopefully will be released later this year. They sent me their 3 songs demo and I gave it a couple of listens. So far I really dig it although production isn't that great but that is to be expected with demos. I really enjoyed Awaken the Dawn song in particular. I can really feel the passion in the music and lyrics. They seems to be very passionate musicians and they are mixing in some black metal influecnes which I always love. Another big plus is they don't have much of the 'core in their sound and they mentioned that their big influences seems to be Antestor, Crimson Moonlight, Carcass, and Warbringer which are excellent bands. I can see some sounds drawn from those influences but they did not try to be a rip off which is good thing! The major problem for me is that the sound is little too fuzzy and its hard for me to hear the drums and bass guitar. That definitely could use some improvement. I definitely am going to keep an eye on them and see what they have to offer in their new album. I give their demo 6/10.
