inferno

INFERNO‘s Day 1 started with Italians Haemophagus who injected a dose of grind death metal to the fest, even when the venue was not full, they did the job onstage. Then, Norwegians Execration hold death metal on the air by presenting their new album Morbid Dimensions with a fleshy and demential sound… Later, Indians Inner Sanctum went to the stage to show how hateful can they are. Although they are a very young band and Indian metal is not often among asian metal bands, those guys showed a nice attitude to the crowd.

Unleashed has been one of the few long time standing death metal bands that had kept their sound and songwriting history constant, while others had turned into a pure folk/pagan metal.

Gruesome – Savage Land (2015)

12 Jacket (3mm Spine) [GDOB-30H3-007}

Most people perceive Gruesome as a reinvented Death mashed up with an insane supergroup. This band is that, but so much more. Gruesome is its own monsters that bites its sharp fangs into brutal soloing and claws deep within complex composition. Each distinguished member delivers their most impressive work which pounds deep into the skull of the album. So listen to this album, and prepare for bloodshed and mass mutilation.

Tribulation – The Children Of The Night (2015)

TR

Scandinavia has been breeding a strange brew of Death Metal lately. Well, that’s not entirely true. The Scandinavian scene has always been experimental and strange, to say the least, while at the same time defining what it means to be old school in the last past few decades. Though I don’t think anyone anticipated that within five years since the “New Wave of Old School Death Metal” burst out onto the world, bands at the forefront would be releasing albums some would legitimately question as being Death Metal at all.
