Surprise of the month

I still don't believe I haven't received the promo of this new God Dethroned. This is one of the best death metal record I have listen in my whole life. Pfou... what a tempo, what an aggression, what a damned fast record !!! A "crushing" brain record. The kind of record you cannot listen two times in a row, because your brain hardly survive the first one.

Is it the new drummer Tony Laureano (session only, Ex-Angel Corpse) who has helped the band to accomplished their satanic and melodic "roller coast wishes". I can't really tell you. Considering Bloody Blasphemy (previous record) as much more heavy metal oriented for my taste and considering also this Ravenous as a speed wagon in my face, I can tell you God Dethroned will kill in live gigs.

Technically speaking, God Dethroned delivers the perfect result : A+. Musically speaking : A+. Aggression : A+. Sound : A++. The enormous production gives even more power to this Ravenous as all songs are so very well arranged, produced and mastered..

Lyrically ? I prefer to use a joker. Eh, we are talking of death metal here. Not the melodic way (In Flames), not the new way (Children Of Bodom, Soilwork), we are talking about death metal in your face. So guys out there who like hard stuff, fast drums, killing riffs and aggressive vocals, this one is for you.

If there is one extreme death metal record to buy, don't search anymore, this is the one. This forth record from Holland is a mixture of death/black/thrash. Slayer is not that far and this record is the answer to the whole Sweden death metal scene. I urge everyone out there to listen to some good music for a change and pick up a copy of God Dethroned's Ravenous. There are so many different elements, diversity and changes in this album that it is rather difficult to describe them all. Don't miss it for nothing.

Killing Songs :
10 extremely fast rockets !!!
