This is a review of a split ep between Philippines's Deiphago and U.S.A's Amputator which will be released in April as a joint effort between Greyhaze and Darkness Attack Records and we will start off the review with Deiphago a band that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays a raw mixture of war, black and death metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very fast, raw and brutal war metal sound which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very chaotic fashion while the songs also stick to mostly a fast direction along with some slow or mid tempo sections only being added into some parts of the songs and bestial growls can also be heard briefly, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Satanism and Anti Religion themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Deiphago and if you are a fan of war, black and death metal, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Heretic Oath".
Next up is Amputator which also continues their mixture of war and black metal.
Their side of the split starts out with war shots and distorted amp noises along with a brief use of spoken word samples before going into a very fast and raw war metal direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking as well as having a very lo-fi atmosphere.
Vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams while the bass guitars also have a very powerful tone to t hem along with some chaotic guitar leads also being used at times as well as the music sticking to either a fast or mid tempo direction, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover death, war and murder themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Amputator and if you are a fan of black and war metal, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Bitch Of Gonorheal Worship".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of war metal. 8/5 out of 10.
