Cannibal Corpse live in Tampere

Posted in Gig, Live, Metal with tags , on 17th July 2018 by izaforestspirit

Mörbid Vomit, Pillorian, Cannibal Corpse
Pakkahuone, Tampere, Finland
16th July 2018

Last night was hot. Finland is experiencing a heatwave at the moment and the temperatures don’t seem to show any signs of cooling down. I was still technically recovering from Lumous Gothic Festival and in this heat I would not normally want to leave the house. This time however, I had a good reason – the world renowned death metal band Cannibal Corpse were in town. I’ve been a fan of their music for several years so I was really excited about the show.

The Finnish death metal band Mörbid Vomit were the opening act. They put on an entertaining show that seemed to go down well with the local crowd. Their music reminded me somewhat of the Swedish death metal band Unleashed. A good start to the night. 3,5/5

I couldn’t really get into Pillorian. Their sound can be best described as a mixture of black metal and atmospheric doom metal with occasional progressive elements. It’s the kind of stuff that would probably sound decent when you listen to it at home but not live. I wanted something a bit more energetic. 2.5/5

 

Luckily the headliners did not disappoint. Energy is one thing that Cannibal Corpse has in spades. This was the second time that I’ve seen these guys live, so I knew what I was in for. Right from the opening riff the mosh-pit was in full swing. It didn’t take long until I too was headbanging along with the rest of the audience. When it comes to headbanging, no one can keep up with the band’s frontman George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher. That guy is a real headbanging professional. They played some of my favorites including ‘Kill or Become’, ‘Hammer Smashed Face’ along with some new material from their latest album. 5/5


In summary, I keep stating that death metal sounds great live. Cannibal Corpse definitely lives up to that description. I’m really glad that I decided to brave the hot weather and attend their show.

2017 is almost over which means that it’s now time for my annual “Best of” or “Highlights” as I prefer to call them. This year’s edition will be in two parts – metal and industrial. So without further ado here are my top ten metal releases of 2017:

1. Kreator – Gods of Violence
Genre: Thrash Metal

Marilyn Manson’s ‘Heaven Upside Down’ didn’t make my top ten list but it’s still a good album which I would recommend. I haven’t been to too many gigs this year but out of the metal shows I’ve attended my favorite would have to be Destruction live in Tampere.

Biggest New Discovery: Mono Inc.

Most anticipated albums of 2018

New albums by Powerwolf, Devilment and hopefully Behemoth.

That’s all for now. Stay tuned for the industrial/other non metal edition coming soon.

Blasphmachine – Salvation (demo)

Posted in CD, Metal with tags , , on 26th July 2015 by izaforestspirit

Blasphmachine
Slavation (demo)
Released 10th August 2015
Death Metal/ Black Metal
Released via Dunkelheit Produktionen

‘Salvation’ is the latest demo from the Malaysian death metal band Blasphmachine. Like all their previous releases, it is strictly limited to 300 copies of the CD version, fifty hand numbered cassettes and digital downloads.

Temple of Desolation starts off with a deceptively slow ambient intro before the guitars and drums blast their way through. The pace of the music and the guttural growls makes me think of Cannibal Corpse, however Blasphmachine’s signature sound has that raw brutality which is a rarity in death metal these days.

Whilst most of the tracks on here tend to be rather short and fast, Commandments caught my attention due to the variations in both pace and the vocal style. Unlike its predecessors, this song is a bit slower at times and the guttural vocals have been replaced by rasping snarls akin that of early Morbid Angel. The same death metal style is present in ‘Leviathan’, only this time the drums sound even more aggressive and brutal. Last but not least is the most primitive and ferocious track on here, a cover of Black Witchery’s ‘Into Damnation Eternal‘ which comes complete with ultra-fast blast beat drums and raw guitar riffs.

In summary this is a decent-sounding death metal demo. I need to emphasize the term “demo” here, because the production quality is not the greatest. Whilst I appreciate the raw brutality of the music, there were times when I actually struggled to hear the guitars amidst the incessant barrage of pummeling drums and growling.

3/5

Five new additions announced for Damnation Festival

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on 25th June 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Germanic titans of doom Ahab and Icelandic progressive metal unit Solstafir are amongst the latest names to be added to the tenth edition of Damnation, which already is boasting the likes of Bolt Thrower, Saint Vitus and Cannibal Corpse.

The headline set will be an exclusive UK performance by Ahab and the first the band have played outside London, while Solstafir arrive in for their debut UK festival show in support of their stunning new album Otta.

They will be joined at Leeds University Union on Saturday, November 1, by Welsh heavy-rock trio H A R K, Dutch post-metallers Atlantis and London’s blackened doom three piece Bast. Ahab said:

We’re delighted to celebrate our 10-year anniversary with the only Ahab UK Show 2014 at Damnation Festival. Headlining the doom stage is an honour and a great birthday present for us!

Solstafir revealed they are "stoked" to be part of Damnation’s tenth anniversary show:

We picked Damnation Festival for our debut UK festival performance, after countless offers from other UK festival promoters, so what better way to celebrate Damnation’s 10th anniversary than joining us in Leeds? And you even get to see Bolt Thrower. We’re stoked!

JimBob of H A R K added:

Damnation has to be one the UK’s best festivals, so we’re over the moon to be added to such a great lineup. We’ve been taking Crystalline out all across Europe since its release, and can’t wait to show the amazing Damnation crowd what we’ve got. This will be a great day.

And Glison Hetinga of Atlantis said:

Playing Damnation Festival is something that we as a band always wanted to do. So being invited for this year’s edition is an great honour.

Bast are also looking forward to playing Leeds for the first time. The band said:

As patrons and fans of Damnation in previous years, it’s with particular honour and excitement that our inaugural performance in Leeds be at the festival’s 10th anniversary – being part of a line-up that’s already promising to be one of the most memorable in recent times.

With ticket sales going at a rate not witnessed since 2008, Damnation Festival’s tenth anniversary promises to be an event to remember. Tickets for Damnation Festival are priced £36 and on sale NOW from Damnation’s official website and Facebook page and Leeds Tickets.

Cannibal Corpse confirmed for Damnation 2014

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 1st April 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

America’s most vulgar death metal band Cannibal Corpse have been confirmed as the Terrorizer stage headliners at this year’s Damnation Festival on 1st November at Leeds University Union. They will be joining the likes of Bolt Thrower, Saint Vitus and Raging Speedhorn for what is looking to be the heaviest and most extreme line-up in Damnation’s ten year history. This will also be the first time the band play Damnation Festival. The band comments:

We’ve been hearing about the Damnation festival from our fans for a while now, so we’re really excited we’re going to get the chance to play it this year. It’s clearly a killer festival and we’re stoked to be a part of it. See you all this fall!

Terrorizer publisher Miranda Yardley is also delighted to see death metal royalty top the stage the magazine has endorsed for the past decade. She added:

Terrorizer is thrilled to be supporting Damnation Festival for the tenth year, and to host a stage headlined by Cannibal Corpse truly is an honour.

Tickets are available for the low price of £36 from this location.
