Jumpin Jesus/The Art Of Crucifying/Vic Records/2017 CD Re-Issue Review


  Jumpin  Jesus  where  a  band  from  Germany  that  played  a  traditional  form  of  death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2017  album  "The  Art  Of  Crucifying"  which  will  be  re-issued  in  November  by  Vic  Records.

  Rain  and  thunder  sounds  start  off  the  album  along  with  a  small  amount  of  horror  movie  style  keyboards  before  going  into  more  of  a  darker  and  heavier  musical  direction  along  with  all  of  the  musical  instruments  sound  very  powerful  while  the  vocals  are  a  mixture  of  death  metal  growls  and  screams.

  When  the  music  speeds  up  a  great  amount  of  brutal  blast  beats  can  be  heard  while  the  solos  and  leads  are  done  in  a  very  chaotic  fashion  along  with  the  songs  also  bringing  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts,  at  times  the  riffs  also  bring in  elements  of  thrash  which  is  also  mixed  in  some  of  the  vocals.

  A  small  amount  of  melody  can  be  heard  in  some  of  the  guitar  riffing  while  acoustic  guitars  are  also  added  onto  some  of  the  later  tracks  along  with whispers  also  being  heard  briefly  on  a  couple  of  songs  as  well  as  one  of  the  tracks  being  very  long  and  epic  in  length and  there  is  also  a  brief  use  of  spoken  word  parts.

  Jumpin  Jesus  played  a  style  of  death  metal  that  was  very  different  for  the  time  it  was  released,  the  production  sounds  professional  for  a  recording  that  was  released  in  the  early  90's  while  the  lyrics  cover  philosophical  and  real  life  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Jumpin  Jesus  where  a  very  great  sounding  traditional  death  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  re-issue.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS INCLUDE  "Out  Of  The  Unknown"  "Cloning  The  Future"  "Important  Gain"  and  "Lost  Yourself".  8  out  of  10.  

Annihilation/The Undivided Wholeness Of All Things/Nice To Eat You Records/2017 CD Review


  Annihilation  are  a  band  from  Portugal  that  has  been  featured  before  in  this  zine  and  plays  a  brutal  form  of  death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2017  album  "The  Undivided  Wholeness  Of  All  Things"  which  will  be  released  in  November  by  Nice  To  Eat  You  Records.

  Clean  playing  starts  off  the  album  before  going  into  more  of  a  heavier  musical  direction  while  the  riffs  also  bring  in  a  decent  amount  of  dark  sounding  melodies  along  with  the  solos  and  leads  also  demonstrating  a  great  amount  of  talent  and  skill  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  a  great  amount  of  brutal  blast  beats  can  be  heard.

  Vocals  are  mostly  deep  death  metal  growls  while the  music  also  has  a  very  modern  approach  to  the  genre  along  with  the  songs  also  bringing  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  angry  screams  can  also  be  heard  at  times  and  some  of  the  tracks  are  long  and  epic  in  length.

  Annihilation  creates  another  recording  that  remains  true  to  the  brutal  style  of  death  metal  from  previous  releases,  the  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  the  writings  of  David  Icke,  Omniverse,  and  Nagas  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Annihilation  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  brutal  death  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Universal  Dismal  Collapse"  "Emptiness  Defiled"  and  "Nagas".  8  out  of  10.

Ashen Epitaph Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording of the new album?

Hi bro, thanks for the opportunity.
We started recording 2 years ago. Our recording sessions are always very slow and this occasion was no exception. But finally we made it and it will be kickass stuff.
We had a couple of live shows till last year’s summer, but after that, we made a long break (over a year long). We needed time and freedom to finish the new album, and now we think that it was a good decision concerning the band’s future. But now, Ashen Epitaph has awoken and is stronger than everyone else. :)


2.You have a new album coming out in October, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?

Yes, we have a new album which will be released by a Serbian label “Grom Records”.
The music genre isn’t different, but maybe a bit faster than the older albums. This time we tried some instrumental things we haven’t done before – faster skank beats / ultra slow beats, dual vocals in classic Carcass style, different kinds of solos and stuff like that.
Regarding the sound, this is a big step forward. Big thanks for our studio guy – Árpád Deák.  He also progressed with us, both in knowledge and studio gear.
It’s a natural progression anyway.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?

We don’t have any changes on the lyrical side. The singer/guitarist – Attila Boros – wrote the lyrics about casual problems in the world spiced with religious criticism... Old school thrash metal themes. :)

4.I know that the band was named after a Benediction song, how does this name fit in with the musical style that you play?

Our name has no specific message or anything like that. We always liked Benediction, especially the Ashen Epitaph EP, so we didn’t have a better idea... Still better than Infernal Deathvomit or Unmerciful Godslaughter. :D
And what could be better for a good death metal band name than an old, rotten grave?!

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?

Hmmm… It’s very hard to pick just one. Every single show is equally important for us. We had a blast with gigs in major cities like Belgrade, Budapest, Skopje, Novi Sad and also in the small towns/villages.
On the stage we always want to do a 110% show full of energy, headbanging, and blasting. But sometimes have problems, like the sound guy is not the best, the size of the stage, or somebody in the band is unfit... Or a hangover! :D

6.Do you have any touring or show plans once the new album is released?

Yes of course, but unfortunately not tours, just simple shows. Actually, we’re doing a big return/album release/ 14th birthday party with 3 awesome bands in our hometown, Senta. After that, we will play some gigs in Novi Sad, Belgrade, Szeged, Budapest. For the next summer, we’re invited a couple of festivals. I hope to add some shows in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. We really like Czech festivals but never played in the country. Maybe on Brutal Assault, on the Jägermeister Stage, after a Deicide show. Hahahahaha. :)


7.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of death metal?

Sincerely I have no idea because I’m not really into that kind of investigation! :) I just know that the metalheads like our music. Of course, I always read reviews if we have something exclusive, a new record or a show. But I’m not a big searcher.

8.Are any of the band members currently involved with any other bands or musical projects these days?

Not really. Our guitarist – Norbert – has a project called Jane Dark with our studio guy. But they only made bedroom album recordings. :) There were only two Jane Dark shows, and I was the session drummer.
I played a few shows with our buddies, the legendary beer thrashers M.A.D. Goya a few years ago. I also got a few calls from bands to do something in the studio or helping them live, but I’m a redneck and I don’t like to learn the songs. :) For me, it’s better to practice and jam in the rehearsal room, cleaning up blastbeats or footwork and trying out some non-typical metal parts.
In the early days, our bassist Mihajlo had a crusty grind project but nothing serious.
And from 2002 to 2004 (the other) Attila and Norbert played in a thrash metal cover band. They played songs from Slayer, Sodom, Motörhead, Venom, etc.

9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

In my opinion, the music will be the same in the future, much like in the last 14 years. Maybe more or less complex; a perfect mixture of the American and European styles of death metal. We aren’t planning to use insane classic keyboard rounds like Stratovarius, and also not clean vocals like Dream Theater. Just shitty, powerful death metal!!! Hahaha! :)


10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

We don’t really listen to many new bands. Of course, sometimes we discover something new, like Mgła, Dead Congregation, Wolves In The Throne Room, Mithras, Ne Obliviscaris, Vallenfyre, etc. But for example, I don’t hunt for new bands. We still listen the same music as 15 years ago – Carcass, Gorefest, Morbid Angel, Edge Of Sanity, Dismember, Death, Malevolent Creation, Kreator, Vomitory, Slayer, etc.
To make a long story short, the classic scene of death/thrash metal and naturally these bands’ new albums; and much more, from Aerosmith to punk music and dark rock, from Soundgarden and Billy Idol to Cryptopsy.


11.What are some of your non-musical interests?

Hmm, that’s a nice question but I don’t have any special interests or hobbies. For me, the best way to “turn my brain off” is playing the drums for 2-3 hours daily.
I’m a big fan of Bud Spencer &Terrence Hill. Sometimes I play games on my old Playstation 1 like Resident Evil 2, Silent Hill, Metal Gear Solid. Also, drinking beer and partying till dawn in my workplace which is a blues rock pub. Classic rockstar life! Hahaha! :)
I (and also Norbert) love good horror movies. The classics are the best in this genre as well – Hellraiser, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Alien, Predator, Fly, THE THING, etc.
And Mihajlo is a very big fan of fishing! It has happened before the he didn’t come to rehearsal because he caught a big carp or some huge beast, and he stayed on the riverside under the influence of victory. :)

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Thank you for this interview, and thank YOU, everyone who read these lines.
We hope to see you soon during a concert somewhere.
Listen to our new stuff “The Formed Filth Enigma” because it kills... And also the older records.
Thank You! Keep grindin’!!!

Ditheist Interview

1.For those that have never heard of you before, can you tell us a little bit about the band?
.Ditheist is a Death Metal band from Chicago IL here is what others think about us :

When you go to McDonald’s, do you want your Big Mac to taste different every time? Hell no, you want a Big Mac. Same with Ditheist. You want some solid death metal, these are your dudes.

DITHEIST - Eternity of Nothingness
These guys are 100% legit. They blast out metal steeped in the great tradition of old school death metal while never sounding dated and boring. The drums are fucking amazing and the heavy riffs are deep dark and brutal.

2.How would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recordings?
2.Me & our drummer Narcyz were heavily influenced by bands like Atheist, Death,Morbid Angel, Nile,Vader, Krisiun, Behemoth, Decapitated so what you hear on our records is a death metal written by big death metal/extreme music fans plus some progressive/jazzy passages .

3.The band has been around since 2006 but so far has only released one ep and full length, can you tell us a little bit more about the gaps in between releases?

3.We released only one EP & LP because for many years we couldn't find a vocalist even when recording Seduction of Demons EP we had to ask Erik Pertl to handle the vocals .
For the very same reason we didn't play shows for two years.

4.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?

 4.Our lyrics focus on : Sense of existence , History,Anti-Christianity, Blasphemy,Black Humor.


5.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Ditheist'?
5.Ditheist  It's a doctrine that maintains the existence of two coequal gods or powers of good and evil , like in Manicheism(dualism).
Manichaeism taught an elaborate dualistic cosmology describing the struggle between a good, spiritual world of light, and an evil, material world of darkness.


6.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?

6.One of my favorites was a show with VITAL REMAINS! & VALE OF PNATH
how often do you get to play with death metal pioneers? They destroyed that night!
We had a set with lots of very fast songs we had a blast.
Our first show ever in 2006/07 was also very cool we played with couple rock bands they couldn't believe how fast & technically sound we were ,that experience encouraged us to play more shows.

7.Do you have any touring or show plans for the future?
7.We had an opportunity to tour Europe but we we're all busy working  at that time .
No touring plans for 2018 as of now

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of death metal?
8.The feedback has been amazing!
We get emails Brazil ,Russia ,UK people really like our music .

9.What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects these days that some of the band members are a part of?
9.Jarek Badzioch our bassist is playing in a melodic death metal band called Inner Decay he also in a rock band now.

10.When can we expect another recording and also where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
10. We already have about 10 new songs but we need to get tight playing them,it's hard to tell when we will enter the studio all I know is that we will probably record at Bell City Sound with engineer Chris Wisco (Gorgasm, Jungle Rot,Broken Hope, Michael Angelo Batio).

  Most  of  the  music  is  very  heavy  rooted  in  the  90's  while  morbid  sounding  melodies  can  also  be  heard  at  times  along  with  the  songs  also  bringing  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  when  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  give  the  songs  more  of  a  chaotic  atmosphere  as  well  as  having  its  dark  and  melodic  moments.

Cripper Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording of the new album?
Lommer: A lot has happened in the band: Dennis took a long ride with his bicycle through Europe for one whole year, Cripper played many shows with our friend and drummer Max from the band Scarnival. During this time, new songs were written with Max and and our other friend Phil on the drums, who helped us out. We had played our first show on the infamous Wacken Open Air, that we promoted with a pretty funny video campaign.
In the last half year of 2017, Gerrit (Cripper's former bass player) left the band. His family situation changed (he became a father. Congratulations!!!!) and he didn't have enough time for the band anymore. Britta, with whom I am also playing in our Death Metal band Critical Mess, asked me one day if I would like to play in Cripper and I said yes. And now, since the May 1st 2017, I am a part of Cripper.

Jon: Since then we had a lot of work for the new release. The whole artwork was made by our guitarist Christian, including all graphic designs and merchandise. We also produced two video clips. Direction, filming and editing was in my hands. The whole production, especially for the "Into The Fire" video clip was a massive teamwork together with friend and took a lot of effort. Besides that we had a lot of interviews, photoshootings, release show organisation, website updating etc. So we were pretty damn busy during the last months.

2.Recently you have released a new album, how would you describe the musical sound that is presented on the recording and also how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?
Lommer: Mmmh, i think the new sound is a little more mighty as the Hyëna. Hyëna was a real dark album and "Follow Me: Kill!" is more like a kick in the nuts.

Jon: I would describe the sound of "Follow Me: Kill!" as amixture of Extreme Metal (Thrash, Death, Djent) with a lot of groove, atmospheric elements and melodic hooks. Modern feel with a straightforward and authentic sound. We always try to sound not too "fat" and overproduced. E.g. we are using just one track per rhythm guitar to make it sound edgy and precise and not too muddy.
In the past we had more typical Thrash songs, solid sound and just a few experiments. On "Follow Me: Kill!" we tried to implement some more crazy ideas, without loosing the heaviness. We recorded a lot of interesting vocal stunts like overtone or throut singing, spooky background vocals, tons of different guitar leads and overdubs, guest solos to give the songs more diversity... I think we used about 7 different guitars to get the best sounds and styles for different parts. Recordings of Cripper were always very extended, but "Follow Me: Kill!" kills it.

3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the newer music?
Britta: With this new record, we are taking quite a new step as far as lyrics. Follow Me: Kill! is definitely our most political album so far. You can find a few very personal or autobiographical lyrics on the album - such as "Mother" and also "Running High", but also a fair amount of political or society inspired lyrics. With how much nasty stuff is going on around the globe, it is about time to speak up and clarify our own standpoint.

4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Cripper'?
Britta: That's kind of a neat story. Cripper was a working title for one of our very first songs. It is short for "Christmas Ripper", an imaginative guy who comes out at Christmas slashing all those hectic and stressed out Christmas shopping people. I am absolutely no Christmas person, so I could really relate to this word creation. We all loved the sound of the word and that it didn't have a predefined meaning. When it was time to name the band, it was our first choice.

5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?
Britta: Our release show for "Follow Me: Kill!" last week here in our hometown Hannover was epic! I mean, playing many songs for the first time is always very exciting, but on top of that the show was spiked with very special elements. We even invented and built a rain machine and let it rain on stage during our new song "Running High". Everything went super smooth and the whole night was a huge success and a lot of fun for us and our fans. A show that is also etched into our minds is our 2013 performance on Metal Days in Slovenia. We were 100% on the spot that day and played an amazing set. It was also the show we got the attention of Metal Blade, who got in touch with us afterwards cause they liked our show so much.

I would describe our live performance as energetic and authentic. We consider ourselves as a live band - I mean, that's what it is all about, right? Playing your shit live. So on stage is where we feel the most comfortable and ourselves.

6.Do you have any touring or show plans for the new album?
Lommer: Yeah, we are taking a short trip to the Baltic States for the first time and will then support Hammercult on their tour in October. In the November/December we will play some single shows in Germany and we are already booking shows for 2018.

7.Currently the band is signed to 'Metal Blade Records', are you happy with the support that they have given you so far?
Britta: Oh yes, very! We are very happy and thankful to be at Metal Blade. The whole team is awesome. We have 100% artistical. They are helping us a lot and opened many doors for us so far. Havin' their trust and support without is a pretty comfortable situation for Cripper.

8.On a worldwide level how has the feedback been to your music by fans of death and thrash metal?
Jon: I would say the majority of extreme Metal fans out there are accepting us as a part of the Thrash and Death Metal scene. The majority of those who knows about us, we are still kind of underground outside of Germany. The female singer aspect is always a topic, even in terms of genre or style.
That means there are more people who compare us with e.g. Arch Enemy than any other Metal band, just because the singer is not a male. I think it's comprehensible but weird, because music-wise we have not much in common with Arch Enemy except for making some kind of Metal style with guitars, drums and growl vocals in it.

Lommer: It was really different, but this is normal (Do you know the Gaussian Bell Curve?  ). some People are primary negtive thinking and you could do, what you want, they are always grumpy... You shouldn't give a fuck, and the best way is to ignore that (Everbody had the right to tell what he/she want, but nobody had the duty to react). But this is a small part, the most people are fascinated of the Album and our Videos we had released. That is really awesome and give us more power to make music!


9.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?
Britta: That is really difficult to predict. I mean, everything we write and do feels very natural. We do not plan out an agenda when it comes to our artistical output. We are following our inner urges and create stuff we feel is in line with ourselves. There's no point in limiting that artificially. I am pretty sure though that Cripper's music will always be on the intense and heavy side. It is just what seems to be the core ingredient in our music, it's the glue that holds everything together. We love to play the longer and more epic tracks live we wrote so far. That's why we allowed us to write even more of those on the current album. Not sure what's gonna happen during the next songwriting phase, but I can see us exploring those kind of songs even a little more.

10.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your newer music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
Jon: Inspiration comes from everywhere. Everyone of us is listening to different stuff, that range is from Black-, Death-, Thrash Metal, Stoner, Crust, via German Hip Hop, Dub Step to Pop Music and everything in between. No borders in taste here.
That is not new for us and we were seeking inspiration from everywhere since we formed the band. For "Follow Me: Kill!" we tried to write more consistent with the idea of not being limited by the "Metal Genre".
The Thrash/Death aspects are flowing anyway. After four "in your face" albums, we are quite routined in writing heavy or furious stuff. Our goal was to make these typical Cripper-Thrashers more complex, interesting and individual.
To name a few bands, which we often had as examples in our discussions in terms of songwriting: Gojira, Mantar, The Haunted (as usual), Killer Be Killed.

11.What are some of your non musical interests?
Britta: I love riding my motorcycle. I went on a week long trip this year with my best friends and that was super nice and relaxing. Other than that I enjoy doing things outside, especially in the summer and when it is really sunny. I am a total sun and beach person. Ummm... what else. .. even though I am not watching many series, if it happens that I really dig one, I am binging for days! Terrible, haha! And I love dogs. I don't have the time for having a dog, but my colleague at work has a dog that I am taking care of sometimes. I'm the dog's aunt so to say. That's always a good time.

Lommer: Puh, i like reading books chilling in my hammock, (some science fiction stuff like Phillip K. Dick), and watching movies/series with my cat in my lap *laugh*. I am also interested in science stuff and i study biology and chemistry. It's difficult but I love it and it's more hobby than work. Also, I like to ride my bicycle (for long tours) and in the winter I go snowboarding in Austria with my wife.

Jon: At the moment I'm totally into photography. I'm working as a video producer and graphic designer for about ten years and am into cameras, tech stuff, design, composition, colors and everything.
But the passion for photography is something new. Besides that, I am trying to see as much as possible of the world, I'm traveling a lot with my family and our two kids, this year we made a three months trip through South East Asia and Australia, followed by a trip to Cuba. I'm spending all my money in camera gear and travel, but not only that; I made a diving course in Thailand and tasted blood, so the next expensive hobby is ready to screw me.

12.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?
Lommer: Öhm, yeah! Don't be shitty, be cool.

Canker/Earthquake/Xtreem music/2017 CD Review


  Canker  are  a  band  from  Spain  that  has  had  an  album  reviewed  before  in  this zine  and  plays  a  technical  mixture  of  death  and  thrash  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2017  album  "Earthquake"  which  was  released  by  Xtreem  Music.

  A  very  heavy  thrash  influenced  sound  starts  off  the  album  along  with  some  melodic  riffing  while  all  of  the  musical  instruments  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  and  when  the  music  speeds  up  a  great  amount  of  blast  beats  can  be  heard  as  well  as  the  vocals  being  mostly  death  metal  growls.

  Most  of  the  music  is  very  heavily  rooted  in  the  early  90's  while  the  solos  and  leads  also  gives  the  songs  more  of  a  technical  feeling  and  some  tracks  also  mix  in  a  more  traditional  thrash  style  along  with  some  riffs  also  adding  in  a  slight  groove  metal  influence  and  the  songs  also  bring  in  a  great  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts.

  Screams along  a  brief use  of  synths  can  also  be  heard  in  certain  sections  of  the  recording  and  as  the  album  progresses  a  small  amount  of  acoustic  guitars  can  be  heard  while  one  track  brings  in  spoken  word  parts  and  tribal  beats  which  also  gives  the  music  more  of  a  shamanistic  atmosphere  and  one  track  also  brings  in  melodic  vocals.

  Canker  plays  a  musical  style  on  this  recording  that  is  mostly  rooted  in  death  metal  while  also  adding  in  a  great  amount  of  thrash  influences  as  well  as  experimenting  with  their  sound  to  create  something  very  different,  the  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  death,  religion  and  political  themes.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Canker  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  death  and  thrash metal,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Whale  Hunt"  "Biosfear"  "Ravenous"  and  "Inquisition".  8  out  of  10.
