The Few Against Many – Sot (2009)

The Few Against Many is one of the many bands that Christian Ãlvestam lends his pipes to, he also contributes on rhythm guitar on this release. This band from Sweden plays a very different Melodic Death Metal than most bands, but different is not always good.

“Sot” is a very short album (only 36 minutes), and it features a 8 songs that are very diverse in nature. This diversity I think is also the main problem of this album since all songs sound very disconnected like they were just thrown together to make a quick release.

Bone Gnawer – Feast Of Flesh (2009)

When I first read the press kit for this release I was stoked, since the band is an all-star compilation of some of the best Death Metal musicians in history: Kam Lee (Massacre, ex-Death), Rogga Johansson (Paganizer, etc), Morgan Lie (Naglfar) and Ronnie Bjornstron (Ribspreader, etc). If this is not enough they had as guest vocalists: Killjoy (Necrophagia), Dopi (Machetazo) and Stevo do Caixao (Impetigo).

If you are not running out to the closest store (or clicking to the on-line store) to buy this album right now, you are a smart person. This album suffers from the ‘too many stars’ syndrome, since it fails to deliver so badly you would want to cry.

Belphegor - Walpurgis Rites – Hexenwahn (2009)

Every time I listen to one of Belphegor’s albums I’m blown away with the ability Helmut has of refining their already brilliant musical style. For those living under rocks or new to metal, this Austrian band plays a mean mix of Death and Black Metal that will put all other bands attempting to do this to great shame,

“Walpurgis Rites – Hexenwahn” is the band’s latest opus and a very worthy follow up to the bizarrely named “Bondage Goat Zombie” album. Belphegor is one of those bands that are like whiskey, they only get better with time.

Nihlotep – Surrogate Panoptic Quantal Regality (2009)

If the Metal Olympics where to be instituted in the next few years, Nihlotep would win in several categories: Longest Black Metal Songs and The Most Lyrics per Song categories.

This band from California plays a mean Black Metal and they are not shy to let you know the have enough composition skills to write a couple of 13 + minute songs for their self-released first full length album.

Nile – Those Whom The Gods Detest (2009)

cover

Two years have passed since their “Ithyphallic” album and now Nile is back and is ready to blow people away with “Those Whom The Gods Detest”.  The band is as brutal and technical as ever with this new release.

Featuring ten tracks of technical Brutal Death Metal “Those Whom The Gods Detest” is set to be one of the fastest and most brutal albums of this 2009. The intensity of the band’s music is what hooks me into listening to the bands albums since their career started back in 1993, and it show no signs of ever slowing down.

Hypocrisy – A Taste Of Extreme Divinity (2009)

cover

Hypocrisy is back for years after their last studio album “Virus” and it was worth the wait. “A Taste Of Extreme Divinity” in my opinion and also in Peter Tagtgren’s opinion (check out our interview with him HERE) is the band’s most brutal album to date.

The band has managed to keep their own signature style when it comes to guitar riffs and vocals and with this album they managed to take the BPM’s up a notch creating a monstrous release that will make your ears bleed.

Interview with Belphegor (Helmut)

"Walpurgis Rites - Hexenwahn" has just been released worldwide and we had a few minutes to ask questions to Belphegor's Helmut. He talks about the ideas behind the new album, their latest video among many other interesting things.

Infernal Masquerade: Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions, and let’s get started:

Yeah, WALPURGIS RITES - HEXENWAHN is released, worldwide and we are goddamn ready to rumble.

Interview with Azaghal (Narqath)

In the eve of the release of "Teraphim" we managed to sneak past Narqath, the band's vocalist, a few questions regarding the band, the new album and other things. Here is the transcript for the interview:

Infernal Masquerade: What was the main reason behind the formation of Azaghal?
