Triverse Massacre - Hades Award winner

Triverse Massacre

TRIVERSE MASSACRE is an Carlisle, Cumbria, North West England ( UK ) based  quintet that has been running and putting out material pretty regularly since April 2010. Two years in, 2012 marked the release of their very first debut EP entitled “In the Jaws of Deceit” - having four songs in total and clocking in around 16:11 minutes. 2014 marked the release of their only full-length so far, giving it the name “With Bared Teeth and Truths”; this was the first solid material released by the band, and although it’s label-worthy, no one bothered to pick it up and release it. It was the same length as the previous EP, which is weird for a full-length, but the music showed some improvement in itself.

So, May 26th marks the date of the band’s newest release - clocking in again at the 16th minute mark; the band seems to enjoy that number a lot. “Hades” is once again an independent record, having five brutal songs that are varying between the Groove, Thrash and Death Metal genres. The EP starts off with “Cocytus” and it instantly gave me the idea that the band is obsessed with mythology, which can only be a good thing, being that I’m a big fan of it in general. Although this very first song is just an intro of chanting drums, apocalyptical instruments and an overall haunting atmosphere, it’s a great way to start an EP. “Styx” is what you have been waiting for, and I must admit me too. It packs a strong punch with some heavy growls, combined with lots of high screams. Whilst the track exists mostly within the Death Metal genre, the entire thing has a strong groovy touch to it, and just a bit of Thrash Metal riffs, making this band a perfect combination of the three; and obviously not favoring any of the three genres too much, but giving all of them a chance.

Make sure to check them out, they are really good.
