Welcome back to another edition of Grownman's Fast Finds. The fast pass to some of my favorite Metal listens of the past week via Bandcamp and beyond. 2013 was an excellent year for metal and this year's early releases are already looking top notch. So let's grind(core) gears and get started!
NASHGUL - OBEYIf you love bands like Nasum and Terrorizer, you will love these guys. I was hooked the very first moment I heard this album which includes material from split albums and unreleased tracks. Nashgul grind out some pretty devastating tunes. The vocalist has a really great range. It's reminiscent of Chris Barnes's unhinged screams and the late singer Mieszko Talarczyk's quick guttural bark. The band is a powerhouse. Fast as hell, full of groove, dirge and fuzz. Definitely add this to your rotation.
One of the best Demos I've heard in years. The vocalist pretty much sealed the deal for me on this one. Each lyric feels like it's being delivered from the depths a medieval crypt. A great mix of old school death and thrash. If you're not covered in cobwebs, road burns and massive bruises after hearing this, you're not doing it right.
Mael Mordha - Damned When Dead
