EP

Pus

Pus are an act from Peru. Okay, that’s enough for an introduction…

No, seriously, I did not know this band and I have about no further information about this act. I think they’re quite new, for this must be their first release (at least, when focusing on their BC-page). It’s a quartet consisting of Parasito, Nauseo, Porfi4do and FXTXZMX, hailing from the capital city of Lima.

Baalberith

There are several bands called ‘baalberith’, named after a demongod, an entity also known as Ba’al Berith and closely related to El Berith (sort of spiritual ‘twins’). I am not going to write down an essay on this grand duke; I guess the internet, and the Old Testament, might satisfy your quest for knowledge.

Promise Down

My first acquaintance with Antwerp (Belgium) based act Promise Down was via the first volume of the Sounds Of Hell Series (a magnificent compilation series focusing on the scene from the Benelux). I was quite surprised by their contribution Furious Masturbation (part of this EP, so I will surely come back to this specific track soon), and suddenly – don’t ask me why, or how – I got their debut EP in my hands. It’s a five-piece mini-album that – nope, I’ll come to that back soon too.

Lůn

Warning: there is a huge dose of feminism going on when talking about the French project Lůn, but it has to do with the female force as a vital part of Mater Terra’s evolution, as goddesses of Human Life, rather than with some anti-male statement. Phew…

Atra Vetosus

To celebrate their tenth anniversary, Atra Vetosus satisfies its audience with the release of a new recording, happily called Even The Dawn No Longer Brings Hope. I’ll keep my introduction brief, for you can find more background information in my former reviews for this act from Tasmania (links: see below). Atra Vetosus were originally formed in 2011 by the Josh-duo (Josh Young aka Slikver, whom you might know as well from e.g.

Tymvos

Once in a while – and that is exactly why I do like being a reviewer – you just get overwhelmed by something completely stunning. It does not have to be something new / renewing, you know, but something that just grabs you by your b***s, eh, something that draws attention.

Inconvenience Store

All the Indians in the Amazon are doing it right now. They refuse to bring any babies into the world. They kill every child that comes into the world, because they don’t want to live in this kind of a world. So be patient, be patient… death is… I tell you – I don’t care how many screams you hear, I don’t care how many anguished cries… Death is a million times preferable to ten more days of this life.

Scepter & Crown

I have no idea about the background of this collective, called Scepter & Crown. I think it is a newly formed band, which consists of the members S (guitars and vocals, as well as the main lyrics), G (drums), and H (textures). The trio hails from Maryland, and more specifically from the city of Baltimore.

Belarus Beaver

Even during harsh and uncertain eras, new labels arise out of the putrid depths. Please bid welcome to Grind To Death Records, a pretty young label based in Malmö, Sweden, which focuses on the harsher side of Death Metal (Brutal / Slam / Grinding Death Metal) and Grindcore. The label did start enormously tranquil, with only two releases in 2020 – yes, that’s it – but I have the feeling that this isn’t but an omen, the quiet before the storm, and I expect a tornado on skull-crushing material yet to come.
