Opinions can differ, and mine is that the number one country of extreme Death Metal subgenres is Italy! - and CEREBRAL EXTINCTION
is only one of a million great bands that ever played there. The band rose to fame in the underground Italian Brutal/Technical Death Metal scene with their 2014 debut album “Inhuman Theory of Chaos
”. The band also has a nameless demo from 2013 (some might refer to it as “Promo 2013
”). A demo was also released in 2016, called “Collision Identity
”, which shares a name with one of the tracks on the newest record, which is soon coming via the band’s current label Amputated Vein Records
Being a proud owner of their debut album on CD, I actually adore it, and I’m really stoked to hear their newest one, entitled “Necro Parasite Anomaly
”. The record is officially coming out on May 5th
, 2017, and the artwork has also been revealed, along with a promo track from 2016 (which will also find a place on the upcoming record). Just to make things clear, the link to the song is from the 2016 promo, and the album version sounds a bit better.
The band consists of 4 members - two of them being constant, two of them session members - and they are: Riccardo F, Shon, Malshum,
& Riccardo R.
So, it’s been 3 years since I heard the soul-crushing, groovy, and nasty debut album, so one asks: what can you expect from the newest one?
Double the brutality, double the songwriting skills, double the apocalyptic lyrical themes, double the gore influenced artwork - basically, if you’re a fan of what the band has done so far, you’ll be amazed with “Necro Parasite Anomaly
”, since it might be the band’s best material to date. Expect 9 tracks of blistering, but not too technical, nasty slamming brutality, and lots of gore, done in a classic, Italian way.
If you’re out searching for talented bands playing similar styles, definitely consider giving Amputated Vein Records
a try, since they pretty much sign the most promising, mind-blowing, and extreme Death Metal out there; and CEREBRAL EXTINCTION
is certainly one of them. Give their new, and old album a try if you’re a fan of KATALEPSY
, HOUR OF PENANCE
, and such bands.
