ADVERSARIAL
ADVERSARIAL
Thralls
(Zombie Ritual Tapes)
14:40min

Wow, heavy stuff from this Canadian 2-piece outfit. If I get it right the demo was recorded without bass, but luckily you don't hear that (the early MANTAS / DEATH stuff was also recorded without a bass and still became classic - Frank). This does not mean that the sound is weak here, actually I can say that the sound on this tape is fuckin' clear and brutal, and damn those 2 musicians know how to play brutal, chaotic blasting Death Metal with small notes referring to some Black Metal brutality, add several acoustic moments to their songs and as result we get 3 massive tracks performed in killer quality. I'm both surprised and impressed of the great performance of this band on this first release. ADVERSARIAL reach the same level as CRUCIAMENTUM did with their "Convocation Of Crawling Chaos" demo and as I totally praised this demo I can't do anything better than praising "Thralls" as well. Check out this demo if you have the chance to and keep your eyes open for the next release of ADVERSARIAL which will hopefully follow soon. This demotape should be available from the Blood Harvest shop or ask at www.myspace.com/adversarialmusic.
