Shed The Skin is a band that reunites Kyle Severn (drums - Incantation, ex-Funerus), Ed Stephens (bass - Vindicator), Matt Sorg (guitar - Ringworm, ex-Blood of Christ) and Ash Thomas (vocals and guitars - Faithxtractor) and their sound is death metal that sounds aggressive, disgusting and melodic, reminding me in some moments of the Swedish band At The Gates. "We of Scorn" is the second album of Shed The Skin and contains ten death metal tracks that will please lovers of both the American scene and the Swedish scene. Good!
Death Metal - Cleveland - Ohio - E.U.A. / U.S.A.
Total grindcore! Deterioration detonates four tracks and Meth Leppard mutilates five tracks. Blast!
Deterioration - Grindcore - Minneapolis - Minnesota - E.U.A. / U.S.A.
Meth Leppard - Grindcore - Adelaide - Australia
Ensepulcher is one of the most interesting new American death metal bands and this record has two rotten tracks. So cool!
Death Metal - Fresno - California - E.U.A. / U.S.A.
Following the same musical line from the previous records, Duskburn released its second album "Serpentide", in 2018, in which once again an animal illustrates the cover. Eight heavy tracks that will make you rock your head. Cool!

In these last years, I have listened a lot to the albums "Fuck The Universe" and "Void", and I really enjoy them. In 2018, Craft wrote and released its fifth chapter called "White Noise and Black Metal" and it's killer. The album consists of eight heavy and aggressive tracks, where guys overflow creativity and competence. There is no bad music, but I must highlight the following tracks, like "The Cosmic Sphere Falls", "Again", "Tragedy of Pointless Games", "Darkness Fall" and "White Noise". Without a doubt, "White Noise and Black Metal" is one of the best black metal albums released in 2018. Excellent!
Black Metal - Dalarna - Suécia / Sweden
"Trident Wolf Eclipse" was the long awaited album released by Watain in 2018, the sixth from the band. Well, "Trident Wolf Eclipse" is a good black metal album, which includes the special participation of Attila Csihar (Mayhem) on vocals on the track "Ultra (Pandemoniac)". I like this album.
Black Metal - Uppsala / Estocolmo / Stockholm - Suécia / Sweden
Owe Inborr (Dispyt) is the guy responsible for Noise Aholic, meaning he recorded and did it all by himself. What you will hear here is d-beat/crustcore in the vein of bands like Disclose and Warvictims. Noisy and good!
D-Beat / Crustcore - Finlândia / Finland

I had not listened to Abigor for a long time... this album is cool and the sound they made on this record is very much in line with the Norwegian scene.
Black Metal - Vienna - Austria

Deadtrack comes from Minas Gerais (Brazilian state) and "Unconcerned" is his fourth record and was released in 2018. With three tracks spinning in about eleven minutes, Deadtrack shows a well-made sound that mixes aggressive and heavy parts in a cohesive way. Good!
Blackened Hardcore / Punk / Metal - Uberlândia - Minas Gerais - Brasil
This self-titled album was released by Dissidence in 2018 and is much heavier and more powerful than the previous records (this is their first album). Straight to the point: eight furious tracks that are an encounter of crust with death metal in its most brutal state. Suitable for those who enjoy Bolt Thrower, Sanctum, Wilt, Cancer Spreading and Acephalix. Very good!
Crust / Death Metal - Reno - Nevada - E.U.A. / U.S.A.
These new Canadian bands are awesome. Zymotic is one of these bands and they are quite noisy. Eight tracks of destruction and dirty raw noise.
Crasher Crust - Montreal - Quebec - Canada
Heift is a new Icelandic band and "Gyðingurinn Gangandi" is their first record released in 2018. Four good and cold tracks of pure black metal.
Black Metal - Hveragerði - Islândia / Iceland
This is the first review of 2019 and it is Sewer Trench's first album that was released in 2018. Well, the musicality of "Optimism" follows the same as "Sewer Trench", the EP released in 2014, ie a mixture of crustcore, grindcore and death metal. Eleven heavy tracks.
Crustcore / Grindcore / Death Metal - Londres / London - Inglaterra / England

Terminal Conquest is another good new band and I have heard a lot of their music in 2018. The band consists of members of Vastation, Genogeist, Death Fetishist and Oppressive Descent and they play a heavy crust/thrash metal with female vocals, which will please Sacrilege and After The Bombs fans, for example. Although this was released in 2017, this demo was one of the best records I heard in 2018 (fuck it! I don't care about the original release date, since the important thing is to spread what is good, whether in Portuguese or English languages). Very good!
Crust / Thrash Metal / Stenchcore - Portland - Oregon - E.U.A. / U.S.A.
Last Breath comes from Mexico and "Scum Sessions" is their first demo that was released in 2018. When looking through the cover, it is soon noticed that the logo used by them has the same source as Antisect and you automatically realize that it is a crust band. Yes, Last Breath plays stenchcore/crust influenced by the English bands of the same 80s genre. Four raw tracks sung in Spanish.
Stenchcore / Crust - Monterrey - Mexico
In 2019 and 2010, I listened a lot to the EP "Within The Darkness", a very good record, where Anguish detonated crustcore with thrash metal guitars. Almost ten years later, Anguish surprised me again with their newest album "Under The Influence", released in 2018. The surprise that the sound now is very different from the EP quoted and yes, Anguish is playing a mix of heavy metal, dirty rock and metal punk. Cool.
Heavy Metal / Metal Punk / Rock 'N Roll - Detroit - Michigan - E.U.A. / U.S.A.
Regime is a new Russian band with Fatum members. Four tacks of pure hardcore/punk influenced by Discharge and Varukers. Good!
Hardcore / Punk / D-Beat - Moscou / Moscow - Russia

This split is totally noisy and that's very good. Instinct of Survival destroys the barriers of silence in this nine track record, where they sound like the old Extreme Noise Terror, that is, fast, dirty and raw. On the other side with three tracks, Asocial Terror Fabrication follows the rhythm of the chaos and rot of the stenchcore performed by them with great influence from the old Deviated Instinct. Very Good!
Instinct of Survival - Crustcore - Hamburgo / Hamburg - Alemanha / Germany
Asocial Terror Fabrication - Stenchcore / Crust - Tóquio / Tokyo - Japão / Japan
Straight, primitive, visceral and rotten! These are the characteristics of Cerebral Rot, a new American death metal band. This four track EP is simply one of the best records of 2018. Fifteen minutes of rot death metal, awesome!
Death Metal - Seattle - Washington - E.U.A. / U.S.A.
Churchburn is a band that has mentors Dave Suzuki (guitars and vocals - ex-Vital Remains) and Ray McCaffrey (drums - ex-Grief), plus Timmy St. Armor (guitars) and Derek Moniz (bass and vocals). The Churchburn sound is a very well done doom metal / sludge that will please everyone who likes Crowbar. "None Shall Live... The Hymns Of Misery" was released in 2018 and contains seven tracks. Cool!
Doom Metal / Sludge - Pawtucket - Rhode Island - E.U.A. / U.S.A.
Plague Rages is an old band from the Brazilian grindcore scene and they grind seven tracks quickly in this record. Highlight for the tracks "Paralisia", "Quadrilha da Privatização", "Histeria" (Cólera cover) and "I See Lies" (Nasum cover). Chikara is a new band that plays hardcore/punk very raw and presents itself in this split with seven tracks as well. Cool!

Facada! Uma banda foda que vem ganhando mais força e experiência com o passar dos anos. Facada! Uma palavra que ganhou novos significados (desrespeito, insulto, subversão, blasfêmia, falsidade e entre outros adjetivos) nestes últimos tempos no Brasil, devido a uma "facada" desferida no então canditado de extrema-direita e novo presidente eleito da república brasileira (facada esta bem suspeita, no sentido de ser sido uma armação, já que o autor do golpe saiu vivo desta situação sem ao menos ter sofrido algum tipo de agressão dos apoiadores e da massa presente no local). Inclusive a página oficial da banda no Facebook foi deletada por conta disso, com a alegação de desrespeito e injúria ao suposto mito [sic] (a página foi recuperada). Diante desses fatos, "Quebrante" já estava disponível no Spotify e esse título caiu como uma luva, tanto para o bem quanto para o mau (bem, no sentido de nós podermos escutar com muito prazer essa grande obra e mau, no sentido que a situação do povo/minorias com este novo governo pode ser a pior possível, lembre-se: amanhã vai ser pior). A palavra quebrante é uma gíria usada no nordeste (também em Minas Gerais) que significa mau olhado e nada melhor que James explicando: "O nome do disco foi dado por causa de um tipo de maldição que minha mãe falava muito. "Quebrante" é também conhecido por "mau olhado", quando alguém está indisposto, triste, sem forças, ruim mesmo. É comum ouvir que a pessoa está com quebrante/mau olhado, que alguém lançou sobre ela energias negativas que foram capazes de anular a energia vital daquela pessoa.". Quanto a barulheira inserida neste álbum, podemos dizer que é a continuação do explosivo e brilhante "Nadir", já que tem bastante elementos/influências metálicas no grindcore feito pela Facada, o que tem deixado o som fodido pra caralho. É até difícil mencionar qual é a melhor faixa de "Quebrante", pois todas são absurdamente empolgantes, brutais, explícitas e realistas, porém as minhas favoritas são "Nós Somos O Veneno", "Apenas Mais Um Igual A Mim", "Tudo Me Faltará", "Quebrante", "A Maldição Da Rede" (sem dúvida uma das melhores letras desse álbum, pois trata-se de um homem que desapareceu por aproximadamente dois anos e foi encontrado morto no próprio quarto - neste caso, apenas o seu esqueleto na rede de balançar , bizarro!), "Sumir" (pique hardcore), "A Vitória Da Diva", "Há Honra (?)", "Eu Sei Como É Morrer" (pancadaria black metal com grindcore - essa faixa é o encontro de Monge, Impaled Nazarene, Marduk e Immortal antigo), "Putrescina" (contraste: bela intro seguida de uma destruição musical), "A Verdade Gera O Ódio", "Pervitin", "Feliz Ano Novo" (feliz 2019? - tema/ideia lírica bem influenciado por Ratos de Porão), "Ele Não Voltará" (blast!) e "Miss Distopia" (a faixa mais diferente do álbum, pois os vocais são falados e não gritados, berrados ou urrados). A masterização de "Quebrante" ficou por conta de William Blackmoon (Gadget). A capa que é muito bem feita e impactante foi um trabalho de Nelson Oliveira (esse desenho lembrou bastante as artes desenvolvidas para os shapes da Santa Cruz Skateboards), na qual tem duas versões: uma em LP lançada pela Läjä Records (a imagem desse review) e a outra lançada em CD pela Black Hole Production (a capa é um detalhe da arte original). Assim como os registros anteriores, a Facada fez mais um excelente álbum e termino dizendo que "Quebrante" é um dos melhores álbuns de 2018! Fodido demais! Facada: Ari (guitarra), James (vocal e baixo), D'Angelo (bateria) e Danyel (guitarra).
First, Facada means 'stab' in Portuguese. Facada! A great band that has gained more strength and experience over the years. Facada! A word in Portuguese that has gained new meanings (disrespect, insult, subversion, blasphemy, falsehood among other adjectives) in recent times in Brazil, due to a "stab" that hit the extreme right-wing candidate when he was elected as the new president of the Brazilian republic (this stab was very suspicious, it seemed very fake, since the person who committed this act left the scene alive without at least suffering some type of aggression from the supporters and others present in the place). Even the official page of the band on Facebook was deleted because of this, with the allegation of disrespect and insult to the supposed myth [sic] (the page was recovered). Faced with these facts, "Quebrante" was already available on Spotify and this title sounds perfect for this moment, both for good and for bad (well, in the sense that we can listen with pleasure to this work and bad, in the sense that the situation of the people/minorities with this new government in Brazil may be the worst possible, remember: amanhã vai ser pior [tomorrow will be worse - this is also a song from the album "Nadir"]). The word quebrante is slang used in the Brazilian northeast (also in Minas Gerais state) which means something bad and nothing better, James explained: "The name of the record was given because of a kind of curse that my mother was talking about. "Quebrante" is also known as "bad look" when someone is unwell, sad, lacking strength, even bad. It is common to hear that the person has a broken / evil eye, that someone has thrown negative energies upon it that have been able to nullify that person's vital energy.". As for the noise in this album, I can say that it is the continuation of the explosive and brilliant "Nadir", since it has many metal influences in the grindcore made by Facada, which has left their sound much more powerful. It is even difficult to mention which is the best "Quebrante" track, because are all absurdly exciting, brutal, explicit and realistic, but my favorites are "Nós Somos O Veneno", "Apenas Mais Um Igual A Mim", "Tudo Me Faltará", "Quebrante", "A Maldição Da Rede" (without a doubt one of the best lyrics on this album, because it's about the story of a man who disappeared for about two years and was found dead in his own room - in this case, just his skeleton was left laying in a hammock, bizarre!), "Sumir" (hardcore), "A Vitória Da Diva", "Há Honra (?)", "Eu Sei Como É Morrer" (black metal destruction with grindcore - this track is the meetings of Monge, Impaled Nazarene, Marduk and old Immortal), "Putrescina" (contrast: beautiful intro followed by musical destruction), "A Verdade Gera O Ódio", "Pervitin", "Feliz Ano Novo" (the lyrical theme is greatly influenced by Ratos de Porão), Ele Não Voltará" (blast!) and "Miss Distopia" (the most unique track of the album, because the vocals are spoken and not guttural). The mastering of "Quebrante" was made by William Blackmoon (Gadget). The cover art that is very well made and impressive was a work by Nelson Oliveira (this drawing reminded a lot of the arts developed for the decks of Santa Cruz Skateboards), in which there are two versions: one on LP released by Läjä Records (is the image posted in this review) and the other one released on CD by Black Hole Production (the cover is a detail of the original art). Like previous records, Facada has made another excellent album and I finish saying "Quebrante" is one of the best albums of 2018! Badass! Facada: Ari (guitars), James (vocals and bass), D'Angelo (drums) and Danyel (guitars).
