UNDERGANG

UNDERGANG
Indhentet Af D°den
(Xtreem Music)
32:01min

This album from Danish heavy-weights UNDERGANG has already been released on LP in January 2010 by UK label Me Saco Un Ojo Records (sold out by now) and now finally it is also out on CD through Xtreem Music. And let me tell you, this is a real gem that's not so easy to find nowadays. UNDERGANG deliver ultra heavy Death Metal in the best traditions of SUFFOCATION (old), ROTTREVORE, (old) CARCASS, AUTOPSY and such like with their own twist and a huge splash of sludge. The sound is chokingly fat, low and murky, yet all instruments are quite clear, vocals are used more like an instrument too, low gurgling growls perfectly add to the deadly atmosphere. There are enough tempo changes and variations to keep the whole album dynamic, mostly ranging from mid-tempo to slow, but the drummer goes crazy on occasions too. Still the ultra heavy Death riffs rule supreme here and what fuckin riffs!! These guys obviously know what they do, everything is very well presented, down to the cover art (killer!!) and logo, and with punishingly heavy sound this might be one of the best old school Death Metal albums of the year. Even though all lyrics are in Danish it doesn't really matter, coz you wouldn't be able to discern a word here, but that doesn't take anything from the whole experience. Many bands try to emulate old masters and even old masters themselves fail to achieve such mindblowing results on their newer records, but UNDERGANG hit it right where it counts and at 32 minutes "Indhentet Af Døden" ("Caught By Death") is set to become one the genre's classics. Very highly recommended! All further info at www.myspace.com/undergang666, www.xtreemmusic.com
