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.
