Incinerate – Sacrilegivm

2020 continues to throw forearm smashes in my eardrums in the form of awesome Death Metal.  I have been following Incinerate since they started in 1998 which is around the same time that I started my first band Pentagoria.  I had met vocalist Jesse Watson at Milwaukee Metal fest that year and was excited to […]

Spectrum of Delusion – Neoconception

Around three years ago I reviewed this amazing progressive technical death metal band from Amsterdam.  I was absolutely floored by their debut album Esoteric Entity. The band’s second album, Neoconception is a concept album revolving around an asteroid hitting earth. “Downfall” opens things up and the madness begins.  If you are not familiar with Spectrum […]

Cult Of Lilith – Mara

Holy Smokes! I was fortunate to review Cult of Lilith’s debut EP Arkanum back in around 2015. Back then Cult of Lilith was still trying to find their sound and were a bit more tech-death oriented. Fast forward to 2020 and we have their first debut full-length album Mara. Hailing from Rejavik Iceland there are […]

Recorruptor – The Funeral Corridor

Lansing Michigan’s Recorruptor return with their 2nd full length release The Funeral Corridor.  I must admit I had not been familiar with these guys but saw in the liner that Josh Moore of Summon is their drummer.  I was a big fan of Summon’s 2005 Fallen album and wanted to see what these guys were […]

Ahtme – Mephitic

Well this definitely on my list for most improved tech death bands of 2020.  Kansas City Missouri’s Ahtme return with their 2nd full length album Mephitic.  I must admit I was a bit ho-hum regarding their 2018 debut Sewerborn.   It beyond clear that the sound of the group has matured a bit and the song […]

Gorgatron – Pathogenic Automation

I have been a fan of Fargo, North Dakota’s Gorgatron for quite some time.  Back in the day Anal Blast used to play shows with them and I have gotten to see and play on many shows with them since then.  Well fast forward to summer 2020 and we have their Third full length record […]

Disavowed – Revocation of The Fallen

Well, Well, Well! What do we have here?  The return of these fine sickos from Amsterdam Disavowed. Having been a fan of the band since their classic debut Perceptive Deception I was intrigued by what their third full length album has to offer and it does not disappoint at all. Revocation of the Fallen is […]

Shrapnel – Palace of the Insane

Sometimes as a reviewer here at Teeth of the Divine I will randomly click on something and just let it buck while I am working on something else.  That was the case for me with Shrapnel’s’ Palace of the Insane. Hailing from Norwich England this Shrapnel’s third full length and have been around since 2009.   […]

Serocs- Vore EP

Having been around since 2009 Death metal international group Serocs are to me one of most underrated Tech Death bands out there right now.  Vore features Laurent Bellemare on vocals who is also the vocalist for the band Sutrah that I reviewed earlier this year.  Serocs also features Kevin Paradis on drums also of Benighted […]

Perdition Temple – Sacraments of Descension

Tampa Florida’s Black Death Serpents of Perdition Temple return with their third full length album Sacraments of Descension.  Having been a fan of Gene Palubicki’s work in past Projects like Angel Corpse and Blasphemic Cruelty I was excited to review this.   Palubicki’s riffing is on point throughout this whole album and there is not an […]

Unmerciful – Wrath Encompassed

Without a doubt one of the most anticipated death metal albums of the year for me, Kansas’s Unmerciful have been an upper echelon brutal technical death metal band.  From the band’s inceptio,n having world class drumming has been a necessary component to the band.  With Unmercifully beaten you had James King. With Ravenous Impulse you […]

Aronious – Perspicacity

I can’t stop listening to the barrage of amazing Technical Death Metal coming from The Artisan Era.  Recently I reviewed Montreal’s Sutrah which blew my out of the water. Now I am taking a gander at a group from Green Bay Wisconsin called Aronious.  This is a time consuming album to process at being close […]

Schizogen – Spawn of Almighty Essence

I really got to hand it to Jason Tipton at Willowtip Records.  He has a unique ability to find some of the most intricately brutal death metal bands (Defeated Sanity, Putridity, Abysmal Torment, etc).  Ukraine’s Schizogen are no exception with their 2020 2nd full length Spawn of Almighty Essence. Musically these guys waste zero time […]

Sutrah – Aletheia EP

I must admit that I am quite sold on everything that The Artisan Era has been putting out recently.  See last year’s unbelievable release by Singularity as an example.  Montreal’s Sutrah have my continuing to pick my jaw off the floor with their 2020 EP Aletheia.  In the bio description they are compared to  Lykathea […]

Ad Vitam Infernal – Infernal Comedy

Well here is a unique release.  French death metal band Ad Vitam Infernal debuts with their first full length record Infernal Comedy.  This group consists of Jerome Mahe on guitars and bass and Samuel Girard on vocals.  Both of these guys program the drums.  This is kind of surprising to discover writing this review as […]

Deivos – Casus Belli

Poland’s Deivos have returned with their 6th full length album Casus Belli.  I must say I was quite please and hooked with their 2017 effort Endemic Divine.   Their 2019 effort follows a lot of similar elements and expands upon some. Deivos play a form of brutal, groovy technical death metal that is a bit in […]

Unfathomable Ruination – Enraged & Unbound

England’s Unfathomable Ruination return with their third full length Enraged and Unbound.  I must admit I am not too familiar with this group. Unfathomable Ruination play a style of brutal technical death metal similar to: Cryptopsy, Origin and Internal Suffering.  Needless to say these gents waste zero time getting things moving and shaking. “An Obsidian […]

Grand Demise of Civilization – Below the Foot of Kings

With autumn upon us and the seasons starting to turn colder this review is a bit ironic for this reviewer in that if fills me with so much joy to review another insanely talented band from Minnesota for your ears to discover. Formed in 2008, Grand Demise of Civilization is a meticulously layered Black Death […]

Murder Made God – Endless Return

Greece’s Murder Made God have been on my radar since their 2013 Brutal Bands Release Irreverence. If you are not familiar with the style of death metal Murder Made God play I would describe as quite percussively rhythmic and groovy.  Murder Made God’s 2019 effort Endless Return is no exception.  Kicking things off with “Alive”, […]

Demiurgon – The Oblivious Lore

Wow! I know I talk up Everlasting Spew Records quite a bit when I review their artists but I cannot help it. They put out such amazing releases! The trend doesn’t stop with Italian brutal tech death metallers Demiurgon and their 2019 2nd full length album The Oblivious Lure. It has been four years since […]

Organectomy – Existential Disconnect

I have been looking forward to reviewing this since reviewing last year’s reissue of their 2017 album Domain of the Wretched.   I was highly impressed with the meticulousness of these sick slamming death weirdos from Christchurch New Zealand.   Existential Disconnect does not disappoint and the bar has really been risen with their 2019 effort Existential […]

Paladin – Ascension

Sometimes as a reviewer social networking helps.  A YouTube link from a record label might pop across your timeline and give you the choice to listen to or not.   Thus was the case with Atlanta’s Paladin and their video for their tune, “Shoot for the Sun”.  First off, the riffing is so over the top […]

Appalling – Inverted Realm

Richmond Virginia’s Appalling return with their second full length album Inverted Realm out on Redefining darkness records.  I must admit I was not familiar with this group until reading the band’s bio in which Angel Corpse was mentioned as an influence.  Appalling play quite a catchy form of blackened death thrash that reminds me of […]

Wounds – Light Eater EP

Well this is most definitely a front runner for EP of the year.  Wow!  Chicago’s Wounds have got my tech death appetite drooling with their debut EP Light Eater.  I had heard from word of mouth from other bands in my area here in Minnesota regarding this incredible band.   I had been hearing the name […]

Hath – Of Rot and Ruin

Willowtip Records have to be one of the most diverse underground metal labels out there.  With over a half dozen new releases on deck for 2019 Jason Tipton has built quite the label lineup of diverse talent (Ceremony of Silence, Vale of Pnath,).  New Jersey’s Hath are no exception.  Debuting way back in 2015 these […]
