Basilisk-End Of Catastrophe (2013)

Well, I can't say that there's much black metal on here, but this is fucking true death metal, starts off with a big kick to your face with a furious blast, before going to a half time grind. Damn! That's catchy! Like every song on here, pummelling riffs and nasty drumming coming in at you from all angles. The drumming on this Japanese band just sounds malevolent, as if the drummer wants to punch you in the face with each beat, excellent riffs, rawer sound. The drums on here, especially, don't sound triggered. Hell, even the guitars have a ripping sound with a minimum of special effects. This gives the album a very badass sound. Very death metal, and very underground. Interesting band singing in Japanese, and this is Death metal to the bone.
