Invasion-Destroyer of Mankind (2016)

A must have for all death metal fans. Invasion's music is all about brutality and kick ass musicianship. "Destroyer of Mankind" is an unholy orgy of double bass, blastbeat drumming and killer vocals, with superb but not flashy guitar work. The tempo varies from lightning fast to fast, the very few slow passages in the album are used only to emphasise the head crushing speed of the rest of the music. This is the kind of album that makes you bang your head like a fkn lunatic. The technique is simply perfect, it has to be heard to be believed. All the songs in it fit with each other like a puzzle and I find it very hard to point out any single one of them. However, the opening track "I am the enemy" stands out, managing to be both real fast and epic at the same time. Another killer track is "Iron bottom sound", which is a violent extreme metal inferno done in the good old school-style.  On the whole, my rating is "buy or die". Valid for death metal and thrash maniacs.
