NEPHASTH - CONCEIVED BY INHUMAN BLOOD - MIGHTY
When recently my subjects were asked to nominate one album that would best represent the sound of punishment and agony that would be inflicted on any traitors at Metallian Towers the overwhelming vote went to Nephasth's latest album. Such is the vicious and violent sound emanating from this album. The Brazilian quartet is responsible for some of the purest death metal anywhere. Even Krisiun has to bow to these maniacs. The band's second full-length takes no prisoners as it maims and slays with extremely powerful riffing, ultra-gutteral vocals, gravity-defying blast beats and a production that is probably worth a lot more than what the band actually paid for it. Songs like Hate Earth and Crucify Again should be required listening for speed monomaniacs. This album is a feat of metallic imagination! - Ali "The Metallian"
