    What KFJC has added to their library and why...

    Eroded / Paganizer [coll] — [Imperium Productions]

    2006 split on a German label.

    Eroded- German project from Bochum, North Rhine-Westphalia. “Old school DEATH METAL – no fucking compromises.” Indeed, they offer a dark, heavy take that’s tight in all the right places, worshiping at the altar of Incantation — “dulce et decorum est.” Well, I guess they aren’t reinventing the wheel, but who fucking cares, these two tracks make for an enjoyable ten minutes. The second one is called ‘The Goats of Heaven,’ which is pretty humorous.

    Paganizer- more Death Metal, this time from Swedead. This prolific group was founded in 1998. Their sound here takes many cues from the D-Beat Hardcore of bands like Totalitar. No blasts, but it is fast and furious with a thickly Entombed guitar tone. With two songs clocking at about two minutes each, this side is less than half as long as Eroded’s, which by the way I preferred.

  • Wolfsschrei / Isaz [coll] — [Raging Bloodlust Records]

    2006 split on a German label from two German Black Metal bands, limited to 500 copies.

    Formed in Thuringia in 2004, Wolfsshrei is the solo project of ‘Taaken,’ also of the great Odal. Make no mistake- this is the better side, with punishing drums, elegantly depressing riffage, and ferocious delivery. Unfortunately it’s only one track. This band is more Satanic than the one on the reverse. Wolfsshrei means ‘Wolf Scream’ in German.‘Leichentanz’ means corpse-dance.

    Isaz – Germany, founded 1996, this trio didn’t record very much, splitting a few years prior to this split. These two tracks are raw and thrashy with real menace in the vocals at times, somewhat similar to Russia’s Nav’. The second one is perhaps the better of the two. Like a lot of German Pagan BM, they draw inspiration from the Germanic pagan reconstructionists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Isaz is a Proto-Germanic rune meaning ‘’ice.’

  • Borigor/ Ceremonial Execution [coll] – [Erode Releases]

    ceremoniale

    boriogor

     

    2004 split

    Ceremonial Execution = Swedish Death Metal featuring both guitarists from the mighty Vanhelgd. Riffy and melodic. ‘Dawn of the Dead’ sample on the first song, which is the better one. The better song, I mean. I like all three of the original ‘Dead’ movies (yes, even ‘Day’). I’m not crazy about ‘Land of the Dead,’ though. Anyway, this is reasonably solid Death Metal, so come on in because the bloodbath is nice and warm.

    Borigor = Germans; their guitarist is named Lars Ulbrich, which is one letter away from Lars Ulrich. His brother is in the band too (Ulbrich’s, not Ulrich’s). “Brutal” Death-Grind falling short of the intended Suffocation. This was the band’s only release… Bore-Igor?
