DEATHMARCHED
DEATHMARCHED
Spearhead Of Iron
(Violent Journey Records)
37:17min

Finnish Death Metal combo DEATHMARCHED contains ex - members of Finnish underground Death Metal veterans PUTRID and GOD FORSAKEN (Mika Hankaniemi on vocals, Hannu Kujanen on guitar and Juha Pohto on drums), in addition of Esa Pennala (also in BLOODRIDE) on bass. DEATHMARCHED's 11-track debut album, "Spearhead Of Iron", is the first well-ripen fruit coming out with the co-operation of the band and an independent Finnish label, Violent Journey Records. As it was pretty much expected from this group, old school Death Metal is the name of the game here - and gladly DEATHMARCHED have wisely decided to stay away from copying the sound of Swedish Death Metal that has become some sort of a fashion thing once again among the kids of today. DEATHMARCHED trust more a similar approach in their sound that bands like AUTOPSY and ASPHYX have successfully taken advantage of for years already - both on their past and present releases, still without sounding really like any of these 2 aforementioned comrades though. It can neither be said that DEATHMARCHED have tried to incorporate many original elements nor ideas into their own sound but who'd expect to do something like that in the very first place? Not me anyway. Simplicity and straightforwardness are just a couple of synonyms that can be used about the material presented on the "Spearhead Of Iron" album; it's relatively tastefully and well done altogether; hence digging DEATHMARCHED how they sound on this debut full-length studio effort of theirs, will be somewhat easy for the fans of the very genre in question. Not an impressive but still very good opening release from these Finnish war gloryfiers nevertheless. www.facebook.com/deathmarched, www.violentjourneyrecords.com
