Pathology – Pathology

Chances are, if you’re a “brutal death metal” fan, that you are well familiar with California’s Pathology. Hell, if you’re just a half-assed metal fan you’ve probably heard of the band at the very least. The group has released nine albums, new album included, in eleven years of solid brutal death metal. Some albums a […]

Aborted Fetus – The Art of Violent Torture

If you’re a fan of the brutal death scene, you’ve likely heard of Aborted Fetus.  These Russians have been honing their craft since 2000, and have always seemed to hover just on the outer edge of the genre trying to really break out as one of the better known of the bunch.  Brutal death has […]

Antropofagus – M.O.R.T.E – Methods of Resurrection Through Evisceration

After a 13 year wait between albums, Italy’s Antropofagus  dropped their sophomore effort Architecture of Lust in 2012, and it ended up being one of 2012s better death metal records. and while the 5 year wait is a little easier to swallow, the result is the same. Sheer death metal destruction. As I mentioned in my […]

Abuse – Nothing is Safe

Last year I reviewed Neurogenic’s Ouroboric Stagnation which was a bit of an international death metal supergroup featuring Lord Marco Pitruzella of Six Feet Under on drums.   Fast forward, present date, April 2017 and Comatose has birthed a new offering from Vancouver Canada in the form of Abuse, also featuring Lord Marco Pitruzella on drums. […]

Desecrate the Faith – Unholy Infestation

I’m not sure what’s worse; that I know exactly what this is going to sound like before I it play or that I’m still going to enjoy it. I mean is there a label that has a more predictable output that Comatose Records? And I mean that in a good way. You know exactly what […]

Face of Oblivion – Cataclysmic Desolation

  Boy Comatose Music have had a busy year!  With releases like Neurogenic Dehumanized, Desecrate the Faith and Blasphemer (to name a few) it has already been a solid and consistent run of brutal death metal.  Adding to their catalog is the 2nd studio album from Minnesota’s Face of Oblivion.  Cataclysmic Desolation is a transitional […]

Blasphemer – Ritual Theophagy

I usually know exactly what I am getting with any Comatose albums sent to me for review. But whoa, I wasn’t expecting the sheer nastiness and brutality that Ritual Theophagy, the second album from Italy’s Blasphemer dropped on me.  Despite being familiar with plenty of other brutal Italian death metal like Logic of Denial, Hour of Penance, […]

Dehumanized – Beyond the Mind

After a long hiatus, NYDM act Dehumanized finally took up shop again and in 2012 unleashed Controlled Elite, an exceptional brutal slammin’ death metal album.  4 years later, not content to rest on their laurels Dehumanized packed their crap went to Joe Cincotta’s NY studio and have recorded Beyond the Mind. This is 10 songs […]

Neurogenic – Ouroboric Stagnation

Well this one was well worth the wait as Comatose presents a really good one with Neurogenic, an international technical slam death super group (If there is such a group. These guys are it and there are a ton of guest musicians on this).Featuring Marco Pitruzzella of Six Feet Under/Sleep Terror/Anomalous handling the drum work […]

Murder Made God – Enslaved

Murder Made God came to my attention with their first album, Irreverence, that was a nice little diamond in the rough that I came across in 2013 and ended up on my top ten list that year.  It was a killer brutal slam/tech death album that got many spins in the ‘ol CD player.  So […]

Atrocious Abnormality – Formed in Disgust

So not only do we have a release from the label mecca of adjective/noun named brutal death metal, Comatose Music, we have the second release from the band who features the owner of said label, Steve Green (also in Lust of Decay)who plays guitars and does vocals here. So if you STILL don’t now what to expect here on […]

Serocs – And When the Sky Was Opened

Back in 2013, I was impressed by the second album, The Next, from Mexican guitarist Antonio Freyre and his gathering of International musicians including bassist Mike  Poggionne (Vile, Monstrosity, Lecherous Nocturne) , drummer Timo Häkkinen (Sotajumala) and Phil Tougas of Zealotry/Vengeful/Chthe’ilist on guitars delivering a dizzying chaotic, Canadian take on death metal that imbued Cryptopsy. With the only change being Josh Smith (Monumental […]

Abhorrent Deformity – Entity of Malevolence

You can count on a few things in this world; death, taxes and Comatose Music releasing quality, brutal death metal.  And new act Abhorrent Deformity bring a little experience with them on their debut is drummer Matt Green who has session and live drummed for slam gods Kraanium. And though not as purely slam or perverted as Kraanium, […]

Visceral Throne – Those Who Have Fallen Beyond the Grace of God EP

Based on the cover and album title, I was fully expecting some black metal here. But of course, being on Comatose Music, you know exactly what this is. Some brutal slamming death metal from the depths of Indiana. This is the band’s first release since 2012’s Omnipotent Asperity, a release I since picked up based on […]

Prion – Uncertain Process

I remember Prion from hearing their last full length, Impressions, way back in 2008.  It was a solid death metal album, and since then these guys had kind of fallen off my radar; though we had to wait seven years for another album, it was worth the wait for this one. Boasting the same original […]

Dysentery – Fragments

Having Dysentery rules!  Said no one ever…  Well, that is unless you’re talking about owning the new album from the aptly named slam death quartet from Massachusetts.  This is their third full length album, and any fan of the slam death genre (one of my favorites), has no doubt heard of them.  If not, then […]

Kraanium – Chronicles of Perversion

I don’t claim to be any sort of Slam aficionado or expert, but a few releases have slammed the shit out of me recently; Bloodscribe’s Prologue to the Apocalypse, Abominable Putritidy‘s The Anomalies of Artificial Origin reissue, Dysentry’s Fragments, Whoretopsy’s, Never Tear Us Apart,  Cumbeast’s eclectic Groovy Massacre, and this, the fourth album from Norwegian stalwarts, Kraanium. Much like […]

Coathanger Abortion – Observations of Humanity

Wait… what the hell is this? A brutal death metal band that actually has… a BASS GUITAR?!?  One that you can feel? And even the drums have a bit of pop to them? WTF?!?  Yes, I can honestly say I was pleasantly surprised when the new Coathanger Abortion (CA) had all of the above.  As […]

Comatose Music – The Brutal Summer Giveaway!!!

Dog days of Summer are approaching. That means heat and sweaty gussets. The only remedy and answer for mother nature’s bukkakke of humidity is some brutal (and we mean brutal) death metal. It just so happens that brutal death metal is the specialty of Comatose Music! Thus, we’ll make the upcoming heatwave even more brutally intolerable by partnering up with Comatose and Clawhammer PR to throw four (4) of the label’s recent gut wrenching slabs of metal at you.

Incinerate – Eradicating Terrestrial Species

It’s good to see that Incinerate is still hanging in there.  Releasing only their 3rd album since a 2000 demo.  Incinerate drop albums just after the brain cell crushing, wearers of unreadable band shirts have stopped wondering, “whatever happened to them”, snapping their necks back in place with Eradicating Terrestrial Species.   Considering their recent […]

Decimation – Realm of Ungodly Creation

I absolutely love brutal death metal, but after going through this record no less than 20 times, I’m struggling a bit with how to approach it.  Does it check all the boxes?  Guttural vocals? Check.  Double bass and blast beats? Check.  Lack of any real bass guitar or bottom end in the mix?  Check. The […]

Septycal Gorge – Scourge of the Formless Breed

If you ain’t gonna reinvent the wheel, then you might as well slap some nice rims on that bitch.  That, my friends, is exactly what Septycal Gorge have done with their latest release Scourge of the Formless Breed.  Septycal Gorge is a band I’d recognized from their first LP that I own, Growing Seeds of […]

Mass Infection – For I am Genocide

Like Sectu’s Nefarious, the Third album from Greece’s Mass Infection is unfortunately liable to get a little bit lost in the early summer/spring deluge of killer death metal namely the stuff Unique Leader releases. Which is a shame as Comatose and Mass Infection have released pretty damn solid death metal record in For A am […]

Devangelic – Resurrection Denied

Are my ears ringing? Why is everything in this style sounding so similar? It’s like déjà vu all over again for the umpteenth time. I remember listening to this everywhere – in my car, in the room, even in the bathroom. I listen to metal a lot. I’ve heard this as Liturgy, I’ve heard this […]

Mortal Decay – The Blueprint for Blood Spatter

Though not quite as crushing as the recent full length from Comatose label mates Necrotic Disgorgement, the new one from Mortal Decay is yet another fine underground 2013 brutal death metal release.  This is only the 4th full length from these New Jersey natives, though they’ve been honing their craft for over 20 years.  I […]
