Wurm Flesh – Excoriation Evisceration

Sacramento’s Wurm Flesh is Comatose Music’s latest signing (at the writing of this review), and they are exactly what you would expect from Comatose Music in 2018/19; no frills, brutal death metal that sticks rigidly to the label’s formula and delivers the goods, nothing more, nothing less. Samples? Check. Something awful happening to a naked chick on the […]

Posthuman Abomination – Transcending Embodiment

Hang on, let me grab my Comastose Music and Italian brutal death metal review template and paste in here…. [Insert brutal album name here] is the debut album from  [insert band name here], hailing from [Italy], featuring current and former members of  [insert other brutal death bands from Italy here] and deliver exactly what you’d […]

Kraanium – Slamchosis

Slam death metal fans: “Dude, the new Kill Everything album, is  sick, it’s the slammiest of the slammiest releases of 2018″ Kraanium : “Hold my Beer….” The fifth album from formerly Norway based, now international slammers Kraanium brings nothing new to the table at all and is all but indiscernible from the last two albums I reviewed,  2012s Post […]

Aborted Fetus – Ancient Spirits of Decay

Russian brutal slammers Aborted Fetus are back with album number 5 and it adds to a pretty good year not just for brutal slammy death metal (Organectomy, Ingested, Manhattan Lovestory), and the always reliable Comatose Music ( Kraanium, Abhorrent Deformity, Kraanium,  Kill Everything, Flesh Hoarder, Posthuman Abomination) also. I own all but the debut from these guys, […]

Abhorrent Deformity – Slaughter Monolith

Although I enjoyed the debut from North Carolina’s Abhorrent Deformity, Entities of Malevolence, I can say I have not revisited it since its 2015 release. It was a solid slab of brutal/tech death that hinted at something better, and here is the something better. Way better. Though certainly still lingering in the putrid Comatose wheelhouse […]

Kill Everything – Scorched Earth

We all know Comatose Music is known for their incredibly brutal roster of death metal bands that are vicious.  If you were sleeping to long or too busy listening to some country music, than you may have missed former Devourment members splintered off and created a new Texas beast of musical ferocity-Kill Everything, in 2016.  […]

Devangelic – Phlegethon

Every time I think Italy has rendered the most brutalist of brutal albums, it seems to quickly get superseded by something else. Whether it’s Hour of Penance to Blasphemer, to Hideous Divinity, then to Logic of Denial, Antropofagus  and recently Daemusinem . Well, Devangelic is here to try and stop the buck. However, the best term I can […]

Logic of Denial – Aftermath

I rather enjoyed this bands second effort, 2013s Atonement, but the band waited a little long for a follow up ( four years is an eternity for brutal death metal), so me waiting a few months to get a review out is excusable. But not much appears to have changed. The band are as brutal […]

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 […]
