This is a review of a split album between Mexico's Gas Chambers and Extermination Deathcult called "Hate.War.Terrorism" which was released by Total War Records and we will start off the review with Gas Chambers a band that plays a very raw form of national socialist black metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a war oriented intro which also adds in some synths and marching music along with some spoken word samples from WWII before going into a heavier direction. Vocals are mostly grim sounding black emtal screams while the riffs also add in a small amount of melody at times.
When the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling. A lot of 90's influences can be heard in the bands musical style while the songs also bring in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Clean playing can also be heard briefly while war samples also return on t he later tracks and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very aggressive yet melodic style. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover national socialism, war, Anti-Judeo Christianity and Luciferian themes.
In my opinion Gas Chambers are a very great sounding raw national socialist black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Panzerfrost" and "Luciferian Storm".
Next up is Extermination Deathcult who return with their raw style of war metal.
Their side of the split starts out with a very fast, raw and brutal war metal style which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. Vocals are mostly bestial death metal growls while the music also shows a great amount of black metal elements as well as having a good amount of 90's influences.
Angry screams are also added into some parts of the music while the growls also get very guttural sounding at times. On some of the tracks the music also slows down briefly as well as the music focusing more on a very fast and power chord driven style of war metal. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover death and war themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Extermination Deathcult and if you are a fan of war metal, you check out their side of the split. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Zyklon 666".
In conclusion I feel this is a very great sounding split and and I would recommend it to all fans of raw black and war metal. 8/5 out of 10.
