On 'Revenant' HUMAN CULL push their already frantic crust-tinged blast-heavy grind of the last release into overdrive, featuring a huge production from Will Blackmon (Gadget, The Arson Project) and furious instrumental performances running in the style of 'FETO' era Napalm Death or 'Human 2.0' Nasum.
The band display clear death metal and crust influences here, and this is certainly the closest to death metal their sound has come. Strong tones from the likes of Unleashed, the ever present Swedeath classics like Entombed and Obituary are found rubbing shoulders with the angular notes of Discordance Axis and Doom, flowing together in one gribbly monstrosity of a release.
This album is the most polished example of contemporary grind from these veterans of the UK scene.

Arising from the cold depths of the Basque Seas emerges KEZIAH; an omnipotent creature with sludge coursing through its veins.
This unrelenting beast channels the swaying, down-tuned riffs and hypnotic, swirling drumming patterns synonymous with the tormented aspects of sludge/post-metal with their latest, aptly titled, release 'The Unknown'.
In just under 40 minutes, images of the world being swallowed in cold, empty oceans will play out as the soundtrack perpetrates your consciousness with molasses-thick progressions and harrowing vocal delivery that'll shake the most sturdy of souls. Nods to Mouth Of The Architect and Cult Of Luna are present whilst retaining originality.
The masters of grind n' roll return with a new masterpiece, bristling with blasts, riffs and incomprehensible screaming. 'Extinction Solution' is a masterclass in hook-laden, 'fun' grind, but do not mistake the term here to mean 'not filled with blast beats and ear shattering vocals'.
Clocking in at around 22 minutes long the Northampton three piece waste no time with overlong intro/outro sections or frilly atmosphere, THE ATROCITY EXHIBIT go straight for the jugular, with old school Napalm Death-esque slippery guitar riffs snuggled up neatly against rock and roll rhythms that would give Lemmy cause to grin ear to ear.
This is a properly excellent extreme music release that will please all smelly crust and grind fans, a strong competitor for grind album of the year!!

One of the most pissed off and corrosive expressions of Death Metal you will ever hear! Finally on physical format the critically acclaimed debut EP by Portland-based band Vitriol, MCD comes with an exclusive brand new track recorded during past sessions!
“Violence is the element that will always be found in any Vitriol song. Trivializing the human experience and shining a light on its frailty and natural cowardice… I truly believe that what we want to communicate and represent with our band is a universal truth to everyone. We’re trying to tap into something that everyone has inside of them.” (Kyle Rasmussen)

Pre-NAUSEA and TERRORIZER members delivering dark, aggressive LA Death Metal in 1987! Their cult Demotape "Bestial Vomit" was hunted as a rare treasure among collectors and tape trading maniacs. Here you finally get it mastered from a copy coming directly from the band's archives, with the addition of another session recorded few months later + a jam session featuring Majesty and Terrorizer together playing a Napalm Death cover + 1 extra track. This is the first official MAJESTY discography on CD and by far the best sounding and most complete one.
