WHOA. I did not expect such a high level of intensity from something coming out of Japan, still entirely engulfed in obscurity. Simply put, this is one of the best demos I have ever heard. Everything about it is perfectly in tune, balanced to a T, making this an engrossing and addicting listen. Touches of grindcore can be heard here and there, as blast beats often find themselves spiraling out of control, cementing the madness and destruction present on this demo. Fantastic guitar tone, very whole, gritty, and raw sounding, yet still easy on the ears. Very intense and fast-paced, yet somehow manages to avoid any sort of "brutal" tag, just impeccably crafted Death Metal.

The song structure in engaging; as previously mentioned, every aspect of this release blends together beautifully, from the perfect amount of riffing, to the raspy vocals that complement the guitars and drums wonderfully. Absolutely nothing irritating or grating about this release, just brilliantly enjoyable music of the purest kind.



  1. Japan has one of the best music scenes in the world.. Bands over there will not put out a demo until they find there "sound".

  2. brutal es la unica palabra para describir la musica de esta banda del japon
