Reptilian Death - The Dawn Of Consumation And Emergence - promo cover

5 Out Of 5 METAL Fists!


REPTILIAN DEATHThe Demonstealer (drums, guitars & bass) is the Metal mastermind behind the sheer evil that lurks within the Death Metal attack of REPTILIAN DEATH, while fronted by the sinister Vinay Venkatesh. Honestly, The Dawn Of Consummation And Emergence came upon me this year like an unexpected high from the Metal Gods of Center Earth! I had no idea about the existence of such a dark and venomous Death Metal advocate, such as Demonstealer. Now I do know and I’m a better night dweller for it.

If you think the album cover art screams bloody-cruel Death Metal nightmares from Hell… wait till you listen to this album! Yes, this is a substantial case where one can judge an album by its cover for the better. REPTILIAN DEATH have created one of the best Death Metal albums I’ve had the privilege to listen to during 2013; while standing up to being one of the best Death Metal albums I’ve ever heard. Sometimes the best Metal surprises of 2013 come in the most dark and wicked of packages.

Make NO Metal mistake, REPTILIAN DEATH are not taking any prisoners with their Death Metal. This amazing Death Metal band from Mumbai (also known as Bombay) India, justifiably has my Metal endorsement and I’m not letting go! Relentless, furious, (of course, evil) and brain stinging Death Metal is all I hear on The Dawn Of Consummation And Emergence. The quality of musicianship, horrifying and mean-spirited vocals, combined with a trueness to the genre, are the deadly attributes I hear on this album. No over-production and no rats-ass filler; just straight-up Death Metal the way I cherish it, both musically and lyrically. Metal be thy name.

REPTILIAN DEATH has long existed in the shadows of the Indian Metal scene as the side project of Demonic Resurrection frontman, Demonstealer. The band spent their first 12 years making sporadic live appearances and changing line-ups fairly often. During that time, REPTILIAN DEATH had an almost humorous disposition, writing little spoof metal epics like ‘5 Easy Ways To Murder Someone’ and ‘Nursery Rhymes For Satan’s Children’ while balancing a handful of serious tracks which eventually found themselves on their 2004 debut, Total Annihilation. In 2006, the band’s direction took a turn for the serious with the release of their EP Intestinal Feast on the Defaced And Split album, which also featured Exhumation, Warface and Narsil.

Shortly after the release, the band returned to the shadows until resurfacing in early 2013. The band exploded on the scene completely metamorphosed into brand new beast. Fronted by Vinay Venkatesh (Bhaynak Maut), dressed in priestly robes with his face painted half black and half white and backed by a band of masked members, REPTILIAN DEATH has moved out of the shadows and into the forefront of the global Metal community. The world will now see The Dawn Of Consummation And Emergence.

PESTILENCE – “Obsideo” Album Confirmed For November Release

Pestilence - Obsideo - promo cover pic

Candlelight Records today confirms November 11th as the North American release date for Obsideo, the new album from Dutch metal extremists PESTILENCE. Produced by vocalist/guitarist Patrick Mameli, the album is the band’s inaugural recording for the label and first new material from the four-piece since 2011.

“We have gone beyond our human limits to achieve the highest form of brutal music,” reveals Mameli when discussing the album’s creation. “The musicianship is such high quality; it is really ten of the most demanding songs written in death metal.”

Together with long-time guitarist Patrick Uterwijk, Mameli, bassist George Maier and drummer Dave Haley deliver a blistering and genre-lifting effort. “I am chuffed to have Dave in the lineup,” confirmed Mameli earlier this year while discussing the band’s updated cast. “He is one of the best extreme drummers in the world and his talent bring PESTILENCE to new levels. George is a young and talented bass player that will turn some heads. Both are really down to earth and real easy-going guys. Patrick, of course, is my most respected and long-going friend and musician.”

Obsideo boasts Mameli and his innovative guitar work. Utilizing eight-string guitars for the album’s recording, the celebrated musician expands his already massive arsenal of riffs. “The eight string guitar opens a lot of doors,” notes Mameli. “It gives lots of new musical options and allows us to make the music sound more brutal than before.  It also forces me to sing in a higher pitch because I don’t want my vocals in the way of the low-tuned guitar parts.  My vocals sound more intense and manic than before.”

Formed in 1986, PESTILENCE took influence from early American and German thrash metal to cultivate its now signature death metal sound. Recording four albums before disbanding in 1994, the band helped to usher the rise in popularity for the genre. Fourteen years later the band reformed; releasing two albums and exciting fans with live performances around the globe. “Mameli and company chose to steer efforts down paths previously unexplored whilst maintaining their vintage essence,” noted Chronicles of Chaos on the band’s 2009 album, Resurrection Macabre (Mascot).

PESTILENCE plans to begin touring in support of Obsideo in the early months of 2014; North America to be included in their worldwide takeover. The band’s last stateside performance was as a featured artist on the second annual 70,000 Tons of Metal Cruise that left Miami shores on January 23, 2012.

1. Obsideo

2. Displaced

3. Aura Negative

4. NecroMorph

5. Laniatus

PESTILENCE is exclusively endorsed by Ibanez Guitars and Pyramid Strings.

PESTILENCE proved that four kids from a small industrially defunct town were ready to overthrow Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and the rest of the world if need be.” – Decibel

Featuring veteran players from GRAVE, COLDWORKER, DEMONICAL, and INSISION, it will come as no surprise that with At the End the Dead Await OVERTORTURE has created a work of overwhelming brutality, tempered only by a penchant for melody. Self-produced by the band and mixed/mastered by Ola Englund (SIX FEET UNDER), the album is made complete with the artwork of Gustav Germann (Guger Art) who has also worked with HAIL OF BULLETS and VOMITORY. Recommended for fans of BLOODBATH, GRAVE, VOMITORY, and BOLT THROWER.

Overtorture formed in 2011 by Magnus Martinsson, Joel Fornbrant, Fredrik Widigs and Jonas Torndal, known from bands like Grave, Coldworker, Demonical and Witchery with the mission to deliver diverse Death Metal with both melody and brutality! Songs quickly came together and demos of some neck-breaking songs were put into final form in late 2011.

In March 2012 the band tapped Andreas Hemmander who’s an old friend and former band mate (Bloodride) of Magnus as second guitarist, and the line-up was finally complete. Shortly after the band signed a world-wide deal with Apostasy Records and started recording the debut album At the End the Dead Await.

“Overtorture displays a lot more than most death metal bands coming out these days.” – Wicked Channel

“These dudes kill the mid-tempo death metal style, but also tear it up with some well dropped blasts.  This record combines a nice mix of old school Swedish death with some new school slamming and some proper slow doom parts.  The end result is a grooving piece of death metal for modern metalheads and old schoolers alike to rip to pieces.” – November 24th Spawned A Monster

“…At the End the Dead Await is worth hearing if you’re a fanatic for old bands like Grave and Seance, or more recent devotees like Feral, Mr. Death, Entrails, Corpsessed, etc.” – From the Dust Returned
