‘Surgical  Murder’ is a three way split release designed to show case some of Asia’s most brutal Death Metal on the scene today. Starting with a trip to The Philippines, AKTARMA SUICIDE bash out the first three tracks in a suitable sporadic style, occasionally crossing the line in to extreme rambling rather than coherent Death Metal savagery, whilst at other times showing an adept knowledge at how to keep things straight and true, crushing and simplistic. Suffering from sub standard production qualities doesn’t help, but work is required on tightening up the bands overall sound. [5/10]

 

MORBID DEVOURMENT from near by Indonesia play at a much more thoroughly rapid rate of knots. Gone is the inconsistency of the previous band in it’s place is a solid wall of brutality that simply pummels it’s way through three equally sadistic songs that focus on psychiatric disorders and varying levels of repugnance! Variety and inter change of sounds are a mystery to Morbid Devourment, what you hear is what you get! [6/10]

 

Turkish band BRUTALCORE are an old acquaintance of Destructive Music [As of an hour ago when I reviewed their split release with Gore Obsessed] and as the opening track of three, ‘Survivor’ kicks into play it’s plain to see not much has changed. Poor production always a hindrance but vocally still raw and aggressive, as well as impressive. Fast, hostile and packing a real punch, it seems to me that if they can increase the levels of production this band would be a real force, especially as their song writing and structure has improved slightly! [6.5/10 – LUKE HAYHURST]
