DEICIDE Overtures of Blasphemy

Album · 2018 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Formed in 1989, Deicide are responsible for shaping death metal at every level. When I first came across them I really wasn’t sure what to think of them, as I felt that metal was being taken into an area I personally wasn’t interested in, and slammed their 1997 album ‘Serpents of the Light’. But, over the years my musical tastes have broadened considerably, and in my fifties I now listen to music that may would consider too extreme for their tastes. Over the last decade I have revisited Deicide, and have discovered that I was a little hasty some 20 years ago, and that the band have consistently produced very good albums indeed. Glen Benton is still there of course, as is drummer Steve Asheim, as they have been ever since they formed Amon all those years ago. Guitarist Kevin Quirion has been joined by newcomer Mark English, and the band have yet again produced an album which is a solid example of the genre.

Interestingly, Benton has returned to songwriting, something that hasn’t happened since 1992’s ‘Legion’, with opening track “One with Satan,” “Compliments of Christ,” and “Consumed by Hatred,” the rest of the guys fleshed out the remaining nine tracks. “When we started the writing process,” says Benton, “I said to the guys, ‘This record doesn’t have to be boring, going-nowhere grind-all-the-time death metal. Let’s really focus on the quality of the songs, I wanted them to write tasty licks and catchy hooks this time. And let the vocals give it its definition.” No-one could ever imagine that this was anything but Deicide, Benton makes sure of that, but this is an album that actually contains a great deal of variety and styles. They never really slow it down of course, but there are times when it is more power metal than death, and these changes allow the music to breath and give the listener the opportunity to recover from the attack. If ever an album was meant to be played at 11 then this was it, and Asheim shows that he has lost none of his power and attack over the last 30 years, still pummelling the skins like an album. This may not make them any new fans, but all those who already enjoy Deicide will find that this album is one of their most disparate for a while, and all the better for it.



THE FIVE HUNDRED Bleed Red

Album · 2018 · Metalcore
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
The debut full-length album from British metalcore outfit The Five Hundred is certainly gaining a great deal of positive attention. There is something about their downtuned eight-string guitars that is causing intelligent critics to lose all rhyme and reason and have been giving this rave reviews. Okay, so metalcore isn’t my favourite sub-genre of the scene, but even I can appreciate it when the band is doing a good job, but for me this lacks ideas and substance, with a singer who seems to feel that jumping between singing and shouting has great dynamic effect and impact. There are times when they slow it down and become somewhat emotional, strings being picked as opposed to being slammed, while at others they are much more like a demented Meshuggah. But, and it is a massive “but”, it all rather feels that it is more about style than actual musical ideas, and that when all else fails then simple aggression will get you through.

Really bass heavy, there isn’t enough light within this darkness to provide the relief and contrast which is required, and I was actually pleased when the album came to an end as I enjoyed listening to the silence more than I had to the actual album itself. Not one to which I will soon be returning.

ABORTED TerrorVision

Album · 2018 · Brutal Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Formed more than 20 years ago, Belgian brutal death metal act Aborted are back with their tenth full-length release, following on from 2016’s ‘Retrogore’. One always knows what Aborted are about, and with this album they deliver, they really deliver. From the gentle introduction through the chaos and hellstorm they unleash, this is quite some album. It is easily the best album I have heard from them, and I have seen others also asking if it is better than their 2003 monster ‘Goremageddon: The Saw and the Carnage Done’, but everyone agrees it is the best album they have released in years.

The drums are being driven by a demented human octopus, the blast beats are everywhere, and there are many times when this album is moving into grind territory, such is its ferocity and unparalleled violence. The guitars crunch, the vocals come from the gut, but just when one thinks it can’t get any heavier they slow it down, or lighten it up, all so that when they come back and put the hammer down everyone gets punched with the change in pace and attack. They remind me somewhat of Cryptopsy in the way they understand dynamics and vary the pace, of Nile in the way they can bring the technical element to bear when they need to, and Carcass and Napalm Death in terms of unrelenting attack when it is required. Luckily, the production is up to the job, and the result is a brutal death metal album that any fan of the genre definitely needs to get.

POLTERGEIST Back to Haunt

Album · 2016 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Formed out of the ashes of Swiss speed metal band Carrion, Poltergeist were formed in 1988, and proceeded to tour with the likes of Destruction, Kreator, Sodom, Tankard, Coroner and Voivod, and released three albums. However, after a 1993 tour with Coroner it was decided to call it a day, with some of the guys then turning up in Gurd. Fast forward to New Years’ Eve 2013, and bassist Marek Felis, guitarist V.O. Pulver and singer André Grieder met up and reminisced over old times. One thing led to another, and soon they had put together a new version of the band. Marek departed again in 2016, but André and V.O. are still the driving force, as they were all those years ago.

October 2016 saw the first new album from Poltergeist in 23 years, and it certainly doesn’t sound as if the line-up had only been together for a relatively short time, as here is a band that are determined to live up to their history. V.O. has been providing vocals and guitar in Gurd since Poltergeist broke up, who are very much an active unit, and while André hasn’t been nearly as active, he still has a good voice. The result is thrash that is incredibly melodic, reminiscent of elements of Iron Maiden together with Anthrax and Testament. The more I played this the more I found that there is something about this album which really appeals to me. There is a welcome naivete which combines with strong riffs and thumping backbone which ensures that this is something that delivers on so many levels.

MORNE To The Night Unknown

Album · 2018 · Doom Metal

Formed in 2005, Morne is a heavy, atmospheric band based in Boston, Massachusetts. Their style blends doom metal and classic British crust but stretches beyond those boundaries, combining a bleak lyrical style with driving riffs. They have obviously been influenced by early Neurosis, and there is a frostiness to the music which is more often associated with raw black metal. This isn’t friendly doom by any stretch of the imagination, with riffs that hammer into the brain, and solos that are sometimes so quiet that they can hardly be heard, adding tinges of funeral-like melody to proceedings.

It is some five years since their last album, but they are well and truly back with a bang. There are times when they allow the music to swell and extend, but this isn’t a dirge that seems to last forever, but instead is music with a purpose. The drums are hard and heavy, yet also have a lightness that moves the music away from the bass and guitar which dominate the lower registers. There is always the feeling of the guys being in total control of what they are undertaking, with a purpose and direction, as opposed to some of the more meandering funereal doom bands around. This is dramatic stuff, and there is no doubt that it is one of the most exciting releases from a band within the doom genre for quite some time. Miss this at your peril.

    [QUOTE=UMUR]You are welcome to retag and move those releases to where you think they fit best. I´m not that familiar with that part of Ministry´s disco. Normally I would ask such a question in the relevant sub genre team thread. [/QUOTE]This is an example of where MMA and PA are quite different, in that in PA the band itself is tagged as being a specific sub genre so therefore all albums have to go under that genre, whether they 'fit' or not. To move a band from one sub to another, the 'holding' sub has to vote and agree that they should be moved, and then the 'receiving' sub has to vote to take them in. If they refuse then they stay where they are.This means that MMA has an advantage in that a band and their output can be more correctly tagged, but it can lead to complications. I would personally always post in the relevant sub genre before moving a band, just to check that the team were happy with it. I remember being mortified to see that Thunder were shown as a glam band, but still asked permission before I moved it.Thanks for moving all the Ministry albums - I just went to do that.Jonas - thanks for the TSOS reviews. I was with the band a couple of nights ago and they are really stoked with them, and said wonderful things about you as a writer as well!
