Genre-bending brutal death metal act Hateful Transgression's record label debut combines the mindnumbing brutality of slam death metal and the atmosphere and aesthetic of Scandinavian black metal.
"Blackened slam" is what the fans have been calling this band, and they have at last solidified a strong lineup to display their sonic dual genre hybrid assault across the five songs heard on this EP influenced from legendary brutal acts such as Devourment, Belphegor, Dark Funeral, Putrid Pile, Gorgoroth, Cephalotripsy and Guttural Secrete. Fans of slam death and black metal are not to miss this release.
New Zealand technical death outfit Ulcerate have often been praised for their innovative genre approach—but six albums into their discography, there's even greater strength in their consistency. Bandcamp Album of the Day Dec 20, 2016
