Convulse (fin) – Svart Records
Finnish death metal quartet CONVULSE are commonly known as one of the most classic bands from the first wave of Finnish death metal, with the debut album World Without God being one of the most collectible items of the era. But last year´s comeback EP Inner Evil, recorded after an 18-year break, proved that the group can still cut it.
Led by guitarist and growler Rami Jämsä with original bass player Juha Telenius and newer recruits Kristian Kangasniemi (guitar) and Rolle Markos (drums), CONVULSE spent the whole of August 2012 locked away in an old-fashioned analog studio, recording what was to become Evil Prevails. Rami Jämsä describes the album as a “fascinating combination of old-school death metal, lightning-fast thrashing parts, some blastbeats here and there, and even ultra-slow doom elements. The CONVULSE of today is heavier and meaner than ever before. This album is a rebirth as much as it is continuation of the old-school spirit.
Finland’s foremost vinyl peddlers SVART RECORDS released the first full length album since 1994 on November 1st 2013 on CD, gatefold LP, and digitally as well. The album cover is a striking new painting by Luxi Lahtinen, the man responsible for many a memorable piece of art in the early ’90s death metal scene. Having just played large genre festivals such as Maryland Deathfest and Killtown Deathfest, CONVULSE are gearing up for more live appearances in the near future.
Undergang – Me Saco Un Ojo / Dark Descent Records
Undergang was spawned from the sewers of the Copenhagen underground in the late spring of 2008, with the intention to bring back rot and putridity to the Death Metal scene. Undergang deliver ultra heavy Death Metal in the best traditions of Suffocaton(old), Rottrevore, (old) Carcass, Autopsy and such like with their own twist and a huge splash of sludge. The sound is chokingly fat, low and murky, yet all instruments are quite clear, vocals are used more like an instrument too, low gurgling growls perfectly add to the deadly atmosphere.
