DEMENTOR
DEMENTOR
Enslave The Weak
(Osmose Productions)
37:56min

Hell yes, they are back! DEMENTOR, Slovakia's best kept secret in brutal Death Metal, finally seem to get their long deserved attention after years of existence. Following their great releases on Immortal Souls and Qabalah Productions, these guys luckily got picked up by an established and way more professional working company lately. The French based Osmose label once again proved their good taste and is releasing the band's fourth full length "Enslave The Weak" this October! If you're aware of DEMENTOR's previous material, you will already know that they have always dedicated themselves to the most ferocious, devastating and completely crushing form of brutal Death Metal, and luckily "Enslave The Weak" is exactly along that line once again. But it is even more than that: it keeps the intensity of their previous album "The Art Of Blasphemy", but comes up with a more varied writing style. Instead of going for total speed all the time, DEMENTOR enriched some of their songs with some slower parts in a typical MORBID ANGEL manner, which results in an even bigger listening pleasure. René Blahusiak's excellent vocals still do send shivers down my spine and in the meantime he has become one of my all-time Death Metal faves next to Ross Dolan and David Vincent (two vocalists, which he is actually pretty close to!). The production on "Enslave The Weak" also turned out a lot stronger than anything the band has come up with in the past and is easily able to compete on the international market. Only the sound of the drums could be improved here and there, but unlike on many other releases, they at least do sound honest and live. So, all in all this is certainly another essential purchase for everyone reading this.
