SLEEP The Clarity

Single · 2014 · Stoner Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Against all the probabilities, Sleep returned after a hiatus of 16 years, releasing a new song through the 2014 Adult Swim Singles – remembering that is free for download. Many acts return years after disbanding, and we all know that most of these returns weren't worth the wait...

But rejoice, fans of Sleep, you all can get high again! The line-up is not the same, since the original drummer left the band. Some people felt this loss, but I couldn't see the difference, really! The musicianship shown in this song, named The Clarity, is excellent. Many nods to Black Sabbath and the 70's hard rock/proto-doom bands, with a generous dose of psychedelia in the last half.

This song is recommendded for the stoner/doom metal fans. Check it out!

CLAUSTROFOBIA Peste

Album · 2012 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Peste, the most recent album of Claustrofobia bring some surprises: the first is the track Nota 6.66. This is an instrumental 7 minute song, where Claustrofobia mix thrash metal with the brazilian percussion traditionally used on samba music! They were helped by the guys from Batuque de Corda, a group of percussion. The results are great, this track is all that Sepultura ever tried to do since Roots! There's even a cuíca solo! Don't expect any prog or avant-garde here, it's fast and violent thrash perfectly blended with samba.

Another surprise are the lyrics, all sung in portuguese. This is a welcomed to me, but don't worry if you are from a non-lusofone country: the songs in this album have enough brutality to delight all the thrashers around the world.

The drumming of Caio D'Angelo has improved greatly since their debut. The addition of a second guitar is also welcomed, bringing some subtleties to their sound. Sure, it's needed some listens to note these subtleties below the virulence of the sound!

The lyrics deal with personal and social struggles, a common theme in thrash metal. Peste is probably the best album of Claustrofobia. Check it out!

TORTURE DIVISION Satan, Sprit och Våld

Demo · 2012 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Music – like almost everything in the world – can be selled. And generated a business tha moves million of dollars. But, some musicians remember us that music is an work of art, and therefore can be made only for passion and pleasure, without commercial motivation.

Let's see the case of Lord K. Philipson. He has a commercial band - Project Hate MCMXCIX -, whose albums are released by a big metal label. He is malso the leader of Torture Division, an excellent band of death metal. All the releases of TD are free for download, and the quality of their music are so good that most of the people must think they (the guys of TD) are crazy for do this without expecting to receive (much) money. But they do, and we must praise them for this!

But... and the music of Torture Division? It's brutal death metal, pure and simply! Their songs are varied, with crushing riffs – a very nice work with the bass and guitars. The drumming is relentless, but don't focusing in blasting beats all the time – showing that the drummer is a skilled guy. But don't worry, there's enough blasting beats to desatroy all the bones of your middle ear! The vocals are unidimensional (growls, growls, growls), but hey, it's death metal! In this release, the lyrics are sung in swedish, and it's a bonus to me! It's always good to listen metal bands singing in their native language!

So, in a nutshell: this demo (EP?) is killer, and the death metal fans will like! Remember, it's free (with a donation option)!

TORTURE SQUAD Hellbound

Album · 2008 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
In a interview to a brazilian magazine, the members of Torture Squad said that Hellbound is "our '...And Justice For All'".

I can not disagree. This album shows a high level of maturity, both in the musicianship and in the lyrical content. The songs are longer than the normal (for Torture Squad's standards) with more intricate arrangements, and less emphasis on chorus.

There's also the inclusion of more keyboards and acoustic passages than on their previous releases, and we even can hear a sitar on the last song, the epic Hellbound. The sitar is played by Fabio Golfetti, musician from the brazilian progressive band Violeta de Outono.

But the brutality still reigns in the Torture Squad sound. This albums is really a killer release, and a must-have for the fans of crushing thrash metal. Recommended!

AUCKENROSE Physis

EP · 2011 · Deathcore
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Auckenrose is a new band, playing what we could call progressive metalcore, with “djent” riffs, many tempo changes and odd times signatures. But is not brutality all the time, there's some melodic passages too, and some avant-garde leanings, mainly in the long song Cognitive Dissonance. Unfortunately, the production is not very good, being noisy sometimes. Although, the listening experience is not totally ruined. The vocalist tries to varies his techniques, from clean to death metal growls, and the instrumentalists are skilled. They only need a better production to record a full length. This EP is free for download at http://auckenrose.bandcamp.com. There's no excuse to not listen!
