(This is Vonlughlio’s review of the newest album by the Czech extreme metal band !T.O.O.H.!, which is out now via Lavadome Productions.)
This time around I will take the chance to write about a project named T.O.O.H. from Czechia that has been around since 1990 as Devastator and changed to their current name in 1993. The responsible parties for this output are brothers Josef (bass, guitars, and vocals) and Jan (drums, vocals).
From 1995 to 1998 they released demos that revealed fantastic musicianship with its raw production which showcased the base of the path this band would take. It was not until the year 2000 that we received their first album From Higher Will, which showed strong song structures with the style of death/grind and bits and pieces of progressive inclinations. It surely is among my favorite debut albums by a band and has a special place in my heart (along with all their albums).
