Kyr’am Beskar – Ecryptus

Navigating between Star Wars themed songs and Technical Death Metal, Ecryptus delivers today via SBDC Records, January 14th, 2022 a really powerful EP – Kyr’am Beskar – which I listened with delight!

Something nearing like some The Ritual Aura; the riffs and melodies are well arranged and the four songs are well produced.

The release of Kyr’am Beskar (Mandalorian for “Death Metal”) follows two demos (2002/2004); The Continuum LP (2005); Astral Crusades EP (2008) and a 7-inch single Rancorous (2018/2020).


‘The Ones Who Create, The Ones Who Destroy’ by Crator – A Comment


Out last September 14th 2016 was self-released ‘The Ones Who Create, The Ones Who Destroy‘ by Crator.

A technical metal act from New York, USA, Crator delivers a powerful album that is on the verge of grind and progressive death.

Using the services of Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice), the powerful bass techniques enhances the musicality of the band and makes us loving the album instantly.

Not for the faint of heart, ‘The Ones Who Create, The Ones Who Destroy‘ by Crator is a good album for lovers of grindcore and technical death metal. Available on Bandcamp.



Illusory by Cognizance – A Comment

coverOut last August 26th 2016, was Cognizance‘s latest self-released EP, Illusory.

A powerful technical death metal EP, they keep doing their studio stuff with high quality musicianship and great talent.

Expect technicality like the other well renowned bands in the empowering style of tech death like Necrophagist, but an itsy-bitsy more melodic. At least that’s my opinion.

For those who would like to see them live, they seem to not venture in that direction as they mention in the Gear Gods interview below, as they focus mainly to deliver high quality studio recordings and they haven’t the resources to do touring and do full-length albums also.

But you can listen to their EPs through the following Bandcamp streaming widget and buy, buy, buy, as they produce greatness that licks our eardrums with delicacy.



‘Our Distopia’ by Martyrion – A Comment


Out today August 26th 2016 is ‘Our Distopia‘ by Martyrion, a band from Cologne, Germany.

Having finished second at two contests in the last few years, they continued to play gigs around Cologne where they kept getting fans and make themselves noticed even more.

Now Martyrion seek your attention with their second full-length album, ‘Our Distopia‘ via Boersma Records. After their previous release, ‘Refugium: Exile‘, which is a rerecorded version of their first full-length album and launched last April 2016, they swim between melodic death, technical death and death thrash, to achieve a real feat up to their talent and release a solid and well executed album.

Listen to the following track, a song featured in ‘Our Distopia‘, available through Boersma Records today.
