Bizarro death metal at its best, outsider death metal and spaced out skronk. Finland's Oksennus are unlike any metal band out there as their compositions veer into all the territories meat and potatoes metal enthusiasts may detest; indulgence in ambience and repetition, lack of aggression for aggression's sake, eccentric by nature and rare rabbits by choice. This is metal for wondering minds and venturous spirits. Oksennus reinvent metal for those not weak enough.

Five putrid tracks of unfiltered death metal. From the mind of Garry Brent (Cara Neir), studiously crafted, perfectly and loosely executed and delivered with utter disgust.
Limited to 200 tapes and 200 CD's

Though mostly unknown in US territory, Mexican quartet Question have been polluting the underground since 2010. Now, after one demo, an EP and a full-length on their backs their sound seems to have radically morphed into an archaic shape; here gnarly riffs twist and turn like beasts on fire while maniacal vocals spit tales of life, death and the unknown. Here lie Question as we will know them from this point forward. (ltd. 200 copies)
Toilet Ov Hell: Question possess that impressive quality of being able to play parts that ostensibly feel unhinged and unpredictable within songs that retain a remarkable degree of fluidity. The momentum of each riff transitions into the next without feeling overtly choppy or forced, which is oftentimes an unfortunate consequence of bands attempting this style of death metal. The final track, “Universal Path Of Disgrace” is the standout for me, and is over 6 minutes of noxious death metal dominance. This EP proves Question are a force to be reckoned with, not only within their region, but amongst the current death metal scene as a whole.

Peruvian death metal lords Evil Priest are back with two extensive tracks of death metal purity. Now, with the Lima trio barely out of their teens, the band has consolidated a style of death metal that is reminiscent of early Death but with an ear for the arcane.
Limited to 150 copies / Pro Tapes / Pro Covers
Tape Wyrm: Since we are past any era of a genre resurgence, the classic death sound for Evil Priest is a thematic celebration of death metal’s most famous competent which is riffs and darkness. Guitar solos, 5th gear snare drumming, looming intros, and guttural vocals all make their appearance in a demo which sounds between here and 1991. Aside from the sound, Evil Priest is young and virulent enough to be a force which will be around for much longer as Black Seeds...of Creation sounds like the band is halfway having fun and half way really serious about this whole death thing.

France's anonymous and occult entity Amnutseba delivered one of 2017's most enigmatic and dynamic black metal recordings, now, roughly seven months later, they are back with a two-song demo that offers an even more twisted interpretation of the most execrable of music subgenres. Step in once again and help yourself; as Amnutseba have morphed and have embraced a fuller, more bizarre and multidimensional sound.
Echoes and Dust: Demo II is a journey even further into the unknown, revealing sides of the Amnutseba’s music that were only hinted at before. If this is merely a teaser of what’s to come, it certainly suggests their, defiant, idiosyncratic, brand of darkness has a bright future.

Holotna is the third recording and second release via Caligari Records for Finland's OBDUKTIO. Limited to 150 copies.
Six Noises: I saw bongos, flute, and mandolin listed as being used on their Holotna album. They're not your standard ingredients in a heavyweight crust album. But there's nothing homespun or folksy about Holotna. It's a hard and mean album, where growling death metal even makes an appearance. If anything, that more unusual instrumentation adds a darkly twisted psychedelic undercurrent.

Cavernous and guttural to the core and with the intent to obsess over the worst life has given us. There is only one thing to look forward to: nothing.
Out on Tape & CD
Toilet Ov Hell: From the ritualistic tom-tumbling crescendo introduction onwards, Archaic Tomb set the tone perfectly for what is to follow; 25 minutes of malevolent mid-tempo death metal that doesn’t try to fool you with flashy fills or excessive theatrics, just solid riff after solid fucking riff.

Many Worship Satan, Satan Worships Us!
Indiana's bastard nefarious sons Orga slit throats and slash veins with a nihilistic and razor sharp sound that blends in the no fucks given attitude of fucked up raw punk with all the malevolence of lo fi black metal.
