Very cool this latest EP released by The Black Coffins in 2013. The band made no changes, continuing the kind of work/sound they did in previous releases. Swedish death metal made in Brazil.

I imagine that this split EP came about through the tour that Instinct of Survival did in 2016 in Japan, that is, partnership and friendship. Well, Instinct of Survival features two tracks called "Menschenfeind" (the best and the most aggressive song)and "Fading Footsteps" (originally released on the album "Call of the Blue Distance"). Life (Liberty Independence Freedom Equality) destroys everything with its three tracks that make up this split EP. Very good!

I used to say that Ash Borer was a cascadian black metal band, but after listening to this album I will just say that they are black metal. Why? Does not matter! From everything I've heard that was released by the band, "The Irrepassable Gate" is for me the best album made by Ash Borer. The songs are long, sometimes aggressive, sometimes with morbid melodies leaving a dark aspect in this album. Highlight for the tracks "The Irrepassable Gate", "Lacerated Spirit" and the instrumental songs "Lustration I and II". Another highlight is the cover art made by Glyn Smyth (simply sensational and quite similar to the arts and sculptures of the Egyptian and Mesopotamian cultures). Very good!

This single was the last Striborg release in 2016. The track is a mix of depressive suicidal black metal with atmospheric elements and ambience. Rubus fruticosus is commonly known as blackberry (mulberry).

Nashgul is a well known band in the Brazilian scene, because in 2004 they recorded a split with Jäpürä Noise Project. Since then Nashgul has recorded several records together with other bands and "Cárcava" is the second album. Recorded in 2016, "Cárcava" is a fast, explosive and totally destructive album. I can say that Nashgul is the Spanish Brutal Truth because of the power of influence and intensity in the noise of the guys. The fourteen tracks that make up this album follow these characteristics. Tracks such as "Progeria Inducida", "Social Network Martyrs", "Matriz de Manipulación", "Guerra Drone", "Cyberpunk Scum", "Taxidermia" e "Premature Burial (Live Like a Dead)" (additionals vocals by Ryo Yamada (Gvenna, ex-Coffins) are the biggest highlights of this album. Excellent album and totally grindcore!

Fuck! This band is excellent! Body Void is a new band and I listened to them in the middle of last year and since then I have enjoyed the music made by them quite a lot. Body Void plays sinister, macabre, obscure and very heavy music with screaming and agonizing vocals. Musically the band is influenced by Grief, Noothgrush and Corrupted (this is pretty obvious and I think it's great). "Ruins" was released in 2016 and contains four tracks of great quality, but I highlight "Swan" and "Ruins" as the most remarkable songs. I still have to add that Body Void is one of the great revelations of 2016. Great!

This is Fear of the Future's third release and also its first full-length. This self-titled album follows the formula from previous records, meaning the metal influence is evident as well as punk influence and also rock n' roll and all this is put into a blender to blend in with revolt in the words written by the band. Bands like Motörhead, Judas Priest, GBH, Chaos UK, Thin Lizzy and Cólera are a great reference for this album. With regard to Cólera, you can feel this vibration in the songs "Dívida", "Quem É Você?" and "Downgrade" (mainly by the choruses) and I must say that the lyrics of these songs are very good (I say this in relation to shit reality). Other tracks of this release that deserve mention are "Downtown Disillusion" (one of the first tracks I have heard from this album), "Decapitate! (The Traitors)", "Noite Fria" (this track has a video clip) and "Leave Me Alone" (Johnny Thunders cover). "Fear of the Future", "Let's Get High (Before It's Too Late)" and "Destroy" are also good songs but re-recorded and originally released by the band in the first demo (so what?). This album is very good and listening to this I feel the same energy of the show I attended in Belo Horizonte in 2013 at MetalPunk Overkill II. "Fear of the Future" was released at the end of 2015, but I only listened to the full album in 2016 and also in 2017, so for me it's one of the best records of 2016. Fuck and destroy!

Infernöh is a Swedish band that plays crustcore/d-beat/hardcore well noisy, that is, they destroy the music in the mold of the Swedish punk style. The noise is good and I like it. "War Tjard" was released in 2012 and this record is summarized as follows: chaos, noise and fuck! Total fucking mangel!!!
Crustcore / D-Beat / Hardcore - Suécia / Sweden
Wehshi Inquilaad is a new band and the guys are from Pakistan. Well, the band plays hardcore/punk raw and minimalist. Two tracks on the bandcamp are available for audition. Cool!

"II" is the best album released by Magrudergrind and that does not mean that the other records are bad. What you will hear on this album called "II" is an anti-music mix of grindcore, powerviolence and hardcore/punk, in which it totals fifteen very noisy tracks. My favorite tracks are "Black Banner", "Incarceration State" and "Unit 731" (Slayer recorded a song with the same title and reports on Asian Auschwitz). For those who really like noise, "II" is one of the best albums of 2016. Fuck!

Split EP involving two bands that I really like. Armagedom is a classic band from the Brazilian scene and they are still putting firewood on the fire to keep the flames burning and the band plays two tracks called "Assim Desabam As Vidas" and"Agonia Abissal". Nuclear Frost is another band that stays firm in the underground scene and dispenses with more comments, because what the band plays is really great and in this record they also present themselves with two tracks called "Wargasm" and "Indian Genocide". Badass!
