Title: Decimation of the Elites
Genre: Death Metal
Year: 24th November 2017 (Godz ov War Prod)
Time: 33 min
Debut album for the Canadian war machine Kremlin, whose singer/drummer Neutron Cannon, in the mid '90s, played in Domini Inferi along with nothing else than RYAN FÖRSTER (Blasphemy, ex-Conqueror), so tons and tons of extreme violence are surely guaranteed in this "Decimation of the Elites"!
In fact, "Decimation of the Elites" is a barbaric triumph in which there is a war death metal that basically combines the bulldozing approach of Bolt Thrower and Asphyx with the more thrashing tunes of the early Swedish death metal in the vein of Entombed and Dismember. All this is characterized also by chainsaw guitars, no guitar solos in every case, well structured songs, and an impressive vocal performance that alternates expressive growls à la L.G. Petrov with strongly malefic black metal vocals.
This main formula is made more various not only by some black metal influences in the riffing ("At War") but also by amazing bestial black/death metal hints, as perfectly shown by the last track "Devilution" where there are very savage blast-beats along with martial mid-tempos very close to Blasphemy ("Ritual", anyone?). Incredibly, Kremlin are able, from time to time, to make a bit strange their assault through, for example, disturbing clean vocals like in the frightful "Under Hypnosis", the slower number in the list.
