(Our Caribbean-born but recently U.S.-based friend Vonlughlio rejoins us with a review, born of unusual enthusiasm, of the new album by the Pennsylvania band Injurious, whose new album was released on July 1st by Lord of the Sick Recordings.)

It has been a while since I had the opportunity to do a small write-up for NCS. This time around I would like to introduce you to the band Injurious from Pennsylvania, USA. This is the solo project of Mr. Joe Anthropophagi (Abolishing the Ignominious, Disgruntled Anthropophagy, Manipulated Calamity, Ex-Animals Killing People). The first release was back in 2017 with the promo that consisted of two songs: “Execrable Hierarchy Diminishing the Worthless” and “Immersed into Cycles of Enmity”. That promo was highly praised in the BDM community and showcased Joe’s already high level of musicianship. The man is just pure talent.

Just last week the EP,Abominable Extermination through Uncanny Passages was released via Lord of the Sick Recordings, and that’s all I have been listening to. This is one EP that’s just full of hatred, from the blast-beats and twisted riffs to with vocals, which successfully transmit this felling to the listener. For me, it’s the best BDM EP of 2018.

(As part of this year’s LISTMANIA series, our friend from the Dominican Republic, Vonlughlio, prepared a list of Top 20 brutal death metal albums from among the vast number that he listened to in 2017… although it actually works out to more than 20 because of ties at various positions, and at the end there is a list of Honorable Mentions as well.)




  1. Abuse – Nothing Is Safe

After 16 years from their debut album, they released their sophomore album, and although it is not as raw or near the length of Like a Virgin they maintained their essence as a ferocious, fast blast-beast with nasty vocals. This has a special place for me and I appreciate that the band decided to make more music. Hope they continue but won’t take as long for a follow-up.

(Vonlughlio has brought us the premiere of a full stream of the debut album by the Pittsburgh technical brutal death metal band Abolishing the Ignominious, with his words of introduction.)

It’s been a while since I did a small write-up for NCS but I could not pass the opportunity to talk about the band Abolishing the Ignominious and their upcoming debut album Vociferous Obsolescence released via Coyote Records.

One I could not pass up the opportunity is the identity of the band’s members: The group consists of Joseph Luciano (ex-Animals Killing People, Andromorphus Rexalia, Injurious, Disgruntled Anthropophagi, Manipulated Calamity), in charge of drums, bass, and guitars, and Eston Browne (ex-Animals Killing People, ex-Humanity Falls, ex-Gigan, ex-Merciless Mutilation) in charge of vocals and lyrics. Both musicians are very talented and I have been a fan of their work in the other projects mentioned above. Continue reading »

(Vonlughlio reviews the new second album by the Mexican/Spanish due Putrefuck.)

I feel honored to do a small write- up for the new release by Putrefuck, one of my favorite bands in the gore-grind genre. I first found the band thanks to Sick Reviews and some friends like Mr. Aguilera back in 2015 with the release of their debut album Impending Necrophilia In Fresh And Pale Cadavers Arriving To The Morgue.

The project formed in 2013, and the two masterminds behind this sickening idea are Mr. Davila aka Shitter (vocals, guitars) and Mr. Adrian Emocaust (drums). You could say it’s an international group since one member resides in Mexico and the other in Spain. Their love for gore-grind, facilitated by the internet, got these two into Putrefuck.

(Our friend and contributor Vonlughlio from the Dominican Republic wrote the following review of the just-released new album by the Indonesian band Perverted Dexterity, whose sole creator is also behind the black metal project Pure Wrath, whose music we’ve previously written about on multiple occasions at our site.)

Perverted Dexterity is the one-man project of Mr. Januaryo Hardy formed back in 2010. I found about this project in 2015, a year after the release of their debut album Primitive Scene of Inhumanity”, which featured fast-paced, in-your-face songs with  a raw production and cannibalistic vocals.

Yes, I was a tad bit late discovering the project, but was so glad I did. Hailing from one of the best BDM scenes around the globe — Indonesia (a land I want to visit someday) — this project has gained more notice since the release of that first album internationally. Prior to that, I believe it was much talked-about in the Indonesia scene as a result of their demo, a spilt, and a 2013 promo release. Of all the one-man projects around the globe, Perverted Dexterity is one of the best, and my favorite. Continue reading »

(This is Vonlughlio’s review of the new second album by the California death metal band Hideous Rebirth.)

As I was looking at Bandcamp for new music, I decided to check out Gore House Productions (a label in Los Angeles, California) and saw that Hideous Rebirth were about to release a new album entitled La Fosa Comun. At first I was a little bit hesitant, because I’d only heard one or two earlier songs by the band, and they were just ok for me. Despite that, I pushed play and was surprised at how different the music sounded on the new track from the album that was then available.

Then they released a new song, “Haunting Carnal Illusions”, featuring the talented Mr. Frank Zelada (Ossification), which premiered here at NCS. This impressed me as well, and the production of both this and the previous track enhanced the songs’ appeal.

Yet I still did not place an order then. Time passed, the release date arrived, and I proceeded to give it a listen (keep in mind that I was not that familiar with their previous EP and album, having only heard a couple of songs), and after one listen, I decided to order it. Continue reading »

(Our brutal-death-minded friend Vonlughlio from the Dominican Republic wrote this review of the new album by Italy’s Devangelic, and if our damned editor weren’t so scatter-brained it would have been posted before the album was released. On the plus side, you can listen to all of it now.)

I’m honored, to say the least, that I have the opportunity to review Italian BDM band Devangelic’s sophomore effort Phlegethon.

The band was founded back in 2012 by Mr. Mario Di Giambattista (Vulvectomy, Corpsefucking Art). That same year the band released a demo of two songs, and it was raw and crushing from start to finish, one of the most-played, if not the most-played, demo for me that year.

Subsequently they signed to Comatose Music and in 2014 released their debut album Resurrection Denied, one of the sickest albums from that year, from the gory cover of a decapitated Jesus to the songs themselves, just raw and riffs for days on end with relentless blast beats. Also Mr. Paolo Chiti’s vocals may have been the best part of it all — the man is one of the best in the genre, with low gutturals and vocal patterns that are memorable. I certainly have to say that among my top debuts in BDM, Resurrection Denied is one of them.

(Vonlughlio brings us another review of brutal death metal, this time focusing on the new release by the multinational band Scatology Secretion.)

This time around I decided to do a small write-up about a new BDM band that formed in the beginning of this year. The project is called Scatology Secretion, with none other that Justin Downs (from Human Excoriation, Vituperate, Purulent Necrosis) on vocals, Oscar Fixation (of Fixation on Suffering, ex-Cerebral Effusion) on guitars, and Squeezer on drums.

In their short time as a band they were signed by rising new BDM label Reality Fade Records and this past July released their first demo entitled Inauspicious Apocalyptic Inception. That struck me as one of the best BDM demos released this year, a display of old-school BDM that reminded me of Brodequin and to some extent Disgorge.

But that wasn’t all the band accomplished this year. Not long after the release of the demo the label announced they were going to release their first full-length in 2017 as well. At that moment I must admit I was a bit worried. I mean, they just released a demo, and usually it takes time for a band to work up to the next musical endeavor. Also, I wondered whether they would they keep the same direction or change to a different sound. Would they pull an Illud upon us fans? Continue reading »

(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. Continue reading »

(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. Continue reading »
