Upcoming or already available TDM releases!

A perfect study of the genre?

If You’re into technical death metal, You surely got into this band. Their new flagship hit the stores at July 27th through Nuclear Blast records! This reminded me first albums of Gorod and Necrophagist but composed with some neo-classical feel and still maintaing lot’s of brutality! I introduce to You DECREPIT BIRTH new album… “Polarity“!

From the begining there’s lot’s of genuine technicality and solo virtuosity. Perfect sound, amazing, deep feel and catchy, yet brutal brain-grinding. “Polarity” kicks hard in the ass. And when You thought that in technical death metal can’t do nothing more or fresh… take a look again at this American lads! Pure technical hell! I love it!

Never’s long awaited new cd…

Amazingly technical album from polish metallers – NEVER. Thrashy alike sound and lots of wild stop’s and go’s. Beside this, “Back To The Front” features guest vocals (duo’s and solo appearances) of Angela Gossow from Arch Enemy and guitar parts by Mauser (Unsun, ex-Vader). A must check for any technical fan! It will be out in two days – 31 march 2010!

This is a debut album from a rising German star – Centaurus-A. Alot of modern technical death metal riffs.
