Holocaustum-In the fields they Bled (2015)

Holocaustum play some insanely downtuned, slow death metal featuring a female vocalist,  the music here kicks ass. The production on this album is killer. Everything sounds incredibly heavy and gruesome. For the record, Shawna Silvers is one hell of a vocalist and some of her growls are deeper than most male singers. What's cool is that the illustration in the cover art goes hand in hand with the themes, as you can imagine yourself standing there in war witnessing the corpses arising from the field. Heavy guitar riffing enters the picture as the songs unfolds into a dark symphony of fucking death metal. The tracks remains at a brutal pace almost to the very end as the drummer uses  heavy double bass destroying everything in his path. So if you're into slow, crushing old-school death metal, then this is most definetely recommended. Definitely this has to be in the pages of death metal history. Brutal as fuck !!
