AXXEN CORNERS is an indie melodic death / groove metal band from Antalya, Turkey that has been around since 2008 but since then has only released this tiny EP titled NOWHERE TO ESCAPE SINS that features only three tracks.

This band is actually the duo of Bilge Ozce aka Serpent who handles bass and vocal duties along with Serdar Evren known as Croc who performs guitar, synthesizers and backing vocals. The band displays an interesting mix of melodic death metal with some groove metal heft as well as a bit of black metal especially in the raspy vocals.

While only reaching the twelve minute mark, this full band sounding duo cranks out a seriously high octane dose of extreme metal with a few progressive time signature outbursts finding their way into the mix which most likely qualifies them as on the borderline of progressive metal.

Rhythmically AXXEN CORNERS is straight forward metal bombast with rampaging guitar riffs and pummeling drumming prowess. The tones and timbres are all selected quite brilliantly and the overall effect is fairly unique as this duo stands out amongst the legions of extreme metal bands around these days.

Synthesizers add a subdued yet effective atmospheric darkness however the star of the show is the incessant display of guitar riffs whizzing up and down the scale. Two vocal styles trade off, deathened guttural growls and more blackened raspy screams. While only a short display of deviant madness, i actually love this! It’s fun and to the point. I truly look forward to something new and much longer from this devilish Turkish delight.
