(Vonlughlio provides this review of the debut album by the Italian/Russian brutal death metal band Interminable Corruptions.)

Back in 2016 while doing my top BDM albums list, I stumbled upon a band called Anomalistic (from Basil) who had released their sophomore album, Human Decimation, via Reality Fade Records, an up-and-coming BDM label based in Ukraine. That album ended up in my top 50 and I got the chance to meet (at least on FB) the owner of the label, Dimitry (a nice dude with an extensive knowledge in BDM). From that time on, I’ve been on the lookout for future Reality Fade releases.

Either at the end of 2016 or the beginning of 2017, the label announced the release of the Coprobaptized Cunthunter EP (a marvelous release) and Interminable Corruptions’ debut album, Xenodimensional Conflux.  I was not familiar with Interminable since they are a new band that had formed back in 2014 and had only released a demo and a split. Some lineup changes occurred before their full-length release, and who they now have as a vocalist is none other than Mr. Paolo Chiti (Ex-Putridity, Devangelic, and Antropofagus) — simply one of the best BDM frontmen!!! Everyone who is into the genre knows this name, and he is well-respected.

(Our friend from the Dominican Republic, Vonlughlio, who loves brutal death metal more than food, prepared this review of the first album in a decade by Human Excoriation.)

So today I wanted to do a small write-up about a band whose music I was familiar with only through a couple of songs from their first album. The band is the US BDM act Human Excoriation, and this past June they released their sophomore effort entitled Celestial Devourment via Pathologically Explicit Recordings.   The fact that this label released the album and that Justin Downs (Purulent Necrosis, Vituperate, Scatology Secretion) was in charge of vocals, peaked my interest in this project.

The band was formed back in 2006 by Travis Cook and Nate Turpin after Methadone Abortion Clinic. The purpose of this new project was to remove the skin of humanity, and with the release of their 2007 debut album Virulent Infestation you can witness that. It has all the BDM standards (lyrics and all) and it has become among my favorite debuts.

(Our old friend from the Dominican Republic and connoisseur of brutal death metal, Vonlughlio, brings us this concise review of the concise new third album by the Chilean band Decrepit Cadaver.)

I first heard about this Chilean BDM band thanks to Force Fed and Rotten Cemetery Records, the two labels that co- released their latest album Vórtice a lo Macabro.  The band was founded back in 2002 by Jorge “Cadaver” Reynaud and a friend who was the drummer at the time. They have released a demo, an EP, a four-way split, and three full-lengths since their inception.

After getting familiar with their discography I decided to get their new album, and I must say that it’s their best work to date.

(Vonlughlio returns! With a guest review of the first new album in 7 years by the brutal death metal band from Turkey, Cenotaph.)

Brutal death has been great so far this 2017 (at least for me), with great releases such as those from Animals Killing People, Bacteremia, Dissociative Healing, Seminal Embalmment, Abuse, Coprobaptized Cunthunter, Exsanguinate, Intoxicated Blood, and Interminable Corruptions, to name a few.

What makes it even more special is the release of Cenotaph’s Perverse Dehumanized Dysfunctions after 7 years of silence. This is one of my all-time favorite BDM bands, ever. When they first announced the plan to release new music, I literally shed tears of happiness (yes, I’m not afraid to say it). You have to understand that at that moment in time I thought the band was done and that a new album would never see the light of day.

(Our old and good friend from the Dominican Republic, Vonlughlio, prepared this review of the new album by the Long Island death metal band Afterbirth, which will be released on July 28 by Unique Leader Records.)

Work has been killing me for the past few weeks and I’ve been meaning to write a review for one of my favorite BDM bands from Turkey (which I will eventually do). But thanks to the Big Boss Islander, nope, that would not be the case.

He reminded of an article he posted about a song by the band Afterbirth and suggested that I should give it a listen. Big Boss thought I might like it. He never is wrong, but in this case when I saw the cover, I was worried to say the least. Why, you might ask? It’s not a bad cover (yes, not bad). It’s just me. I’m a bit complicated when it comes to artwork.

Well, Islander, you were right, I ended up loving the song. I would also like to take the opportunity to say thank you for letting me do a small write-up of their album, The Time Traveler’s Dilemma. I was not familiar with their demos or EP, so I decided to check what I could find on YouTube and then listen to the full-length.

(We welcome back Vonlughlio, with another recommendation of brutal death metal for our readers.)

So this time around I have the opportunity to write about one of my favorite BDM bands from Australia. No, it’s not Disentomb (which I do love), it’s a band from Adelaide, South Australia, named Seminal Embalmment.

Formed back in 2006 under the moniker Five Finger Disintegrator, they changed their name in 2011 (glad they did).  Two years later they signed to New Standard Elite and released their EP Stacked and Sodomized, material that displayed amazing riffs with well-executed drums and great song structures. If I had made a top EP list that year, it would have been included. The only aspect of the music that I did not enjoy as much was the vocals; they were not bad, but they did not seem to go hand-in-hand with the music.

(Our loyal and good friend of many years, Vonlughlio from the Dominican Republic, a man with an experienced and refined taste for brutality in metal, brings us this review of the new album by a group of Colombian slaughterers who call themselves Bacteremia.)

Bacteremia is a Brutal Death Metal band founded in 2006 in Colombia. I discovered the band in 2013 with the release of their debut album Cerebral Wrong Settings. I loved the raw sound, the crazy riffs, the intense drumming, and the powerful vocals. I included it in my year-end list here at NCS.

The current line-up of the band is: Carlos Andres Penagos (Drums), Andres Felipe Soto (Guitars), Sebastian Guarin (vocals), and Oscar Callejas (Bass).

(This is the third and final 2016 year-end list prepared by our friend Vonlughlio, which compiles favorite extreme metal albums in genres other than Brutal Death Metal — which was exclusively the subject of Part 2 of his lists yesterday.)

As I explained in my previous list of favorite BDM albums, this year I wanted to separate that genre from the others since it’s my favorite. In this list are the albums by bands from other extreme metal genres that I liked the most.

And here it goes:

(We present Part 2 of our friend Vonlughlio’s 2016 year-end list. This segment is devoted to favorite brutal death metal albums, and tomorrow’s third part will delve into other genres.)

To begin, I would like to thank Islander for being able to share with all of you readers the music I love. Also to the contributors of NCS — thanks to them, I have discovered great bands.

As some of you might know, one of my favorite genres is Brutal Death Metal, and when I began  making my year-end Top 50 list I felt that some bands in this and other genres were left out (there are always some regardless). And so I decided to make two year-end album lists, one that will be only for BDM releases, and the other containing bands from other genres, such as Death, Black, and Technical/Death.

So here are my Favorite Brutal Death Metal Albums of 2016:

(Our old friend from the Dominican Republic Vonlughlio once again brings us his list of the year’s best releases. This year it’s divided into three parts, beginning with this list of favorite EPs, demos, and compilations. We’ll have the Best Album lists coming over the next two days.)
