Blasphemy+Necromorbid+Barbarian Swords (Rome, 5th December 2019)

Bands: Blasphemy+Necromorbid+Barbarian Swords
Date: 5th December 2019
Location: Traffic Live Club
Price: 35 €

Here comes Blasphemy! They were plenty of fukken years that we awaited this moment and, finally, these Canadian legends called Blasphemy played for the first time ever in Rome (and also in Italy) on 5th December 2019 at the Traffic Live Club! Ok, the price for the concert was really absurd because it was of 35 shitty euros, and I know many people who denied to be present that night just for that price. In addition, the concert was organized on Thursday, surely a "wrong" day, and also because of this "little" detail that there were less attendants than expected through the FB event. But fuck all these considerations because Blasphemy are a pure kult for me and, I repeat, it was their first time ever in Rome, so the occasion was truly unmissable in every fukken sense, also since who knows when they'll come back here in Italy?

Vibratacore - "Resurgita" (self-release, 2019)

Gruppo: Vibratacore
Titolo: Resurgita
Genere: Crust Punk con influenze Black e Death Metal
Durata: 23.56 min
Data di rilascio: 5 aprile 2019
Voto: 74/100

Anvedi chi si rivede da queste parti, i Vibratacore! Millenni fa io recensii su queste pagine il loro EP "Good Morning Pain", di cui fu girato anche un bel video promozionale per la stessa titletrack. Quindi, mi ha fatto piacerissimo quando il loro storico bassista Lorenzo, dopo la mia news circa il 15esimo anniversario dei grandi MuD a cui gli stessi Vibratacore hanno preso parte, mi ha chiesto se fossi disponibile a recensire il loro nuovissimo EP "Resurgita". Senza pensarci due volte, la mia risposta è stata ovviamente positiva, ragion per cui Lorenzo mi ha gentilmente inviato una copia fisica di "Resurgita", ed ecco qui la recensione!

Mudface - "Awaken to a Different Sun" (Art Gates Records, 2019)

Band: Mudface
Title: Awaken to a Different Sun
Genre: Modern Metal with different influences
Time: 22.23 min
Release Date: 28th June 2019
Vote: 73/100

After Of Fire, this is a new review about an Art Gates Rec's release! In fact, today you'll know the existence of a quintet coming from San Francisco, California, whose moniker is Mudface. Even though their official story starts in 2005, they were founded in the now very far 1998 under the curious name of S1ft but, with it, they released only 3 demos. Instead, the band has been surely luckier under the most aggressive name of Mudface since they edited 2 full-lenght albums so far. Well, their last production isn't an album but a nice EP entitled "Awaken to a Different Sun", that spews forth an interesting sound not so extreme for the Timpani allo Spiedo standards but, anyway, pleasantly uncommon on these pages.

Honorable Mentions from the Abyss #14: Crucifixion/Sepsis/Sadistic Drive

Hey brutalbangers,
welcome to this new episode of "Honorable Mentions from the Abyss" (no reviews, no votes, only mentions!), that this time is completely dedicated to the Colombian death metal label La Caverna Records (FB page), that we already knew on these pages thanks to the now defunct Thrombus. It is a label very active in the reissues front and, in fact, 2 out of the 3 productions here mentioned are hidden gems of a death metal past not dead but still strongly alive.
So, let's start to discover them and enjoy this article!

Hey brutalbangers,
I like a lot interviewing bands coming from exotic countries, places where the metal situation is surely a bit particular in comparison with other countries in which our favorite music is stronger (Germany, Sweden etc.). For example, time ago I interviewed the mighty Abatuar from Panama and I had another great chat with Witchgöat from El Salvador. Well, today it's the turn of Sabotage from India, whose promising debut EP "The Order of Genocide" was enthusiastically reviewed few days ago.
So, let's go to discover in a deeper way the Indian (thrash) metal scene with Sabotage and enjoy this interview!

Honorable Mentions from the Abyss #13: Pacifist+Death by Fungi

Hey brutalbangers,
some days ago you discovered an Indian thrash metal act called Sabotage. Well, this time we'll dig into the Indian hardcore punk scene through two very talented bands: Pacifist and Death by Fungi. Both self-released their own EP in 2019, and both were sent me by the Bengal agency Qabar Extreme Music PR.
So, welcome to this new episode of "Honorable Mentions from the Abyss" (no reviews, no votes, only mentions!) and let's start to discover these Indian bands!
