Hey death metal maniacs,
a nice review by Francesco Bazzurri about a death metal demo awaits you today!
In fact, this new article is about the debut demo of Symbtomy, an Anglo/Czech trio that, for their first work, was helped by other musicians that figure here as guests, especially on vocals. In this sense, I am talking about veterans of the Swedish death metal like Johan Jansson (Interment, Asocial) and Jonny Petterson (Wombbath), alongside with Ralf Hauber (Revel in Flesh, ex-Immortal Rites) from Germany.
In addition, it seems that this "Demo #1" was kissed by a good success in the underground, since it has recently been edited on cassette by two labels in different periods: the US Frozen Screams Imprint on November; and the Slovakian Immortal Souls Productions this December. I'm glad that Symbtomy, born only in 2019, reached this reception because, as you'll see soon, they deserve a lot.
Now, let's see Francesco said about the demo!


Demo is a seed. You can follow the growth. You can see the potential, the inner creative energy.
Speaking about new seeds to keep an eye on, I have listened to the work of Symbtomy, an Anglo/Czech melodic death metal band. They offer us "Demo #1" , exactly a demo, that contains three very good tracks for a fifteen minutes very powerful ride. The global impression is that the band plays a music that remember glorious bands like Pestilence, but digging deep, their sound contains a personal style.
