I Exist

I EXIST are a sextet from Australian capital Canberra,   and on there  3th full length they present us a slab of  darkness one would not immediately  link to surfers paradise down under.  What I Exist  offer us is   downtuned    guitar violence , ranging from  doom to stoner  sludge with a hint of death  metal and  some  hardcore.  The vocals can be filed under “guttural”.  Not  all tracks on “From Darkness” manage to   score high on my   “attention span radar”  but when they  let  the sludge & doom  approach take  priority  o

Angelus Apatrida

Good to know,  “Evil unleashed  / give’ em war” is a  rerelease  of the first 2  albums of this Spanish band,   the info sheet tells me that we’re talking thrash, but  in my opinion Angelus Apatrida  are just as  much a power metal band as they are  thrash.   This  review also only refers to  “Evil unleashed”  for the simple  reason that  that’s  all the promo package proved to me contained….   Anyway Angelus Apatrida    come as a nice surprise to me as  even today  good quality  metal bands from Spain are  a rare breed.
