1st mini CD with 3 bonus from their Demo/7"EP from 2012 by this killer hungarian band that plays an intense and catchy Death Metal that blends influences from both the finnish and swedish schools in equal parts without sounding like any certain band. You'll love it!!
Per capire il fascino che può produrre un album di buon vecchio death metal, suonato come la vecchia meretrice vuole, non è possibile prescindere da gioiellini come questo primo Ep degli ungheresi Gravecrusher.
Una copertina fantastica che, avessi trent’anni di meno (tanti? eh beh,sono vecchio) finirebbe appesa al muro della mia camera sopra illetto,a proteggermi dai brutti e candidi sogni di giovane metallaro, e una produzione asciutta ma perfetta sono il corollario ad un sound che è una messa nera dedicata al death scandinavo di parecchi anni fa.
Morbid Black Oath è un invito all’headbanging sfrenato, una cattedrale di riff immersi nella pece più nera, un tuffo tra le anime dannate imprigionate dal signore incontrastato della musica estrema: Lord Death Metal.
La band magiara, attiva dal 2012 con il demo “Mutilation Ritual”, che ritroviamo per intero nei solchi del disco, si porta nel proprio bagaglio, in partenza sul primo binario per l’inferno, grandi richiami all’epoca d’oro del death e dei gruppi che lo portarono ad entrare nella storia, non solo dei generi estremi ma di tutto il movimento metal.
Dismember, Entombed e Grave, tanto per fare dei nomi, sono i numi tutelari di un massacro senza soluzioni di continuità, solos iperveloci si alternano a potentissimi momenti di cadenzata furia, growl da demonio rabbioso fanno di questo dischetto un must per le orde malvagie di zombie in attesa di impadronirsi, ancora una volta, di questo scalcinato mondo, il tutto suonato con ottima tecnica al servizio di un sound devastante.
Questi sono lavori che riconciliano con il metal estremo e che, pur non rappresentando qualcosa di nuovo, risultano ancora più affascinanti proprio perché qui non c’è alcuna concessione alla modernità.
Da avere, esclusivamente, ma di questo non ho dubbi, only for fans.
Xtreem Music are a Spanish label specialising in death metal. Recently, they’ve released some cracking stuff including albums by Wrong, Death Vomit and Infest to name just a few. So I was thrilled when Kunal Choksi sent me a copy of another Xtreem Music release for review – the new Gravecrusher CD.
Gravecrusher are from Hungary, and play death metal that is intense and brutal, and that perfectly combines an old school death metal vibe with their own unique sound. They released a demo in 2012 (the impressive 3 track Mutilation Ritual), and a split EP in January 2014 (Eternal Mutilation, along with with fellow Hungarians, Necrosodomy).
Morbid Black Oath is their latest release – an awesome 4 track mini CD, with the 3 tracks from the Mutilation Ritual demo included as a bonus. It’s heavy as fuck and catchy as hell. There are elements of early Bolt Thrower, early Entombed, Unleashed and early Sentenced here, but the guys have created their own individual sound and listening to this is a refreshing skull pounding experience.
It’s impressive stuff, and if you’re a fan of old school death metal you need to check this out!
We are ready to smile and entertained when heard the rhythms that really kicked off the boredom. Through the touch of harmonious from death metal beats from European style and touch a bit of American Death Metal style, fastened strong with old death metal riffs that 100 percent is catchy and dynamic, thrilling of the body to always moving and swaying, has the feel of a violent, anger and sometimes too dark and leaden. Yes, it's time for us, enjoy the rhythm that impressed simple yet really entertaining, which makes this head cannot stop headbang, and through earphones and then imagine, their music likes a murderer cold-blooded who dress office uniform, and then walked into the boss room, approached and immediately put a pistol right in the forehead and shot him. This really suddenly, like their music is catchy, it suddenly stimulates our ears through the delicious rhythm from bass that initiates a tone in a song titled ' Triump on the Undeed '. Delicious, instantly enthralled and entertained.
We know that the mcd entitled ' Morbid Black Oath' from the band which was formed two years ago in Hungary, contains seven songs composed of four new songs and three songs taken from their demo titled ' Mutilation Ritual ' will feature a ton of catchy riffs, It already we see and hear from their demo that released two years ago. Although this is only mcd, nonetheless to be proud of being ' Xtreem Music '; because until now, the label continues to produce the quality bands, not only that, they also produce bands that have a strong vision and character in music, able to entertain the listeners, and that is what we feel right now from 'Gravecrusher'.
The scent of delicious and beauty of the rhythms that really dispose of boredom and monotony, have been opened since two early singles entitled ' Triump on the Undeed ' and 'Necromantic Perversion'. This Two tracks are aggressive and very assertive with the Character of Swedish old school death metal style, but we ' re not thinking about it, because these two tracks are already giving a lot of nuances and that is what we would expect and get from this band. The beauty of Swedish Old school death metal rhythm back be played in a song titled ' Morbid Black Light ', still has a lot of nuances, besides could feel the anger from the scents of music that they play, but this time they gave a dark scent that denser, compared to the two previous songs.
'Worship The Impaler ' really tore the ear with a balance between the rhythms of Old school death metal Europe and America style, the song is full of anger and really attack the dissatisfaction. The last three tracks titled ' Ritual Mutilation, Deranged Massacre, Cryptic Butchery ' are evidence of their existence that really invites us to headbang, play the rhythms that really kills boredom, and it is always to be heard. ' Gravecrusher ' is really putting themselves as music lovers who know how to make music be not tired and actually invites the listener to feel the deeper meanings from their music that full of anger, occasionally cold and excited.
Nachdem mich die letzte Desecresy so enttäuschte und ich schon dachte Xtreem Boss Dave Rotten hätte sein Gespür für Old School Death verloren und würde in Anbetracht der letzten Veröffentlichungen vermehrt auf Brutal Death setzen, da knallt er uns Gravecrusher vor den Latz.
Schwedischer Todesmetall at its best, nur nicht aus Schweden. Gravecrusher kommen aus Ungarn, und die Puszta Deathmetaller lassen uns auf der vorliegenden Mcd glauben das Ungarn direkt an Schweden grenzt. Oder die Jungs haben von Geburt an nix anderes zu hören bekommen als die Mukke aus`m Ikealand.
Die Jungs bringen zwar nix neues, schaffen es aber die altbekannte Zutaten überzeugend und packend zu präsentieren. Da ist ordentlich Pfeffer drin, oder soll ich besser sagen Paprika der allerschärfsten Sorte. Der absolute Übertrack ist dabei das titelgebende "Morbid Black Oath", schneller Einstieg, groovendes Riffing und kurze schleppende Parts zeichnen ihn aus, dazu heiseres Geröchel der allerbesten Art. Wobei das Niveau der anderen Tracks auch nicht von schlechten Eltern ist, "Morbid Black Oath" sticht nur besonders hervor.
Neben den 4 Tracks der Mcd gibts als Bonus noch 3 Titel vom Demo bzw. der 7inch oberdrauf die qualitativ nicht abfallen. Da kann auch das Albumartwork locker mithalten welches uneingeschränkt über alle Zweifel erhaben ist.
Das was uns die Ungarn hier in Form der ersten Mcd als Appetithäppchen vorwerfen ist ein Leckerbissen der Hunger auf mehr macht und genauso knallt wie die Peitschen der ungarischen Pferdehirten.
