Scent of Death – Of Martyrs’s Agony and Hate

No Image Available

Back in 2005 I received the debut full-length, “Woven in the Book of Hate”, of a Spanish band called Scent of Death. Hell, we even interviewed back then (interview done by Martin Beukman). All this back in the day we were called Vampire Magazine and were a webzine. Quite funny that some bands instantly find you again when you start a new fanzine after all those years. With “Woven in the Book of Hate” Scent of Death didn’t hide their admiration towards Morbid Angel, Immolation and Hate Eternal. And on “Of Martyrs’s Agony and Hate” the admiration continues. For example you can hear some Morbid Angel’s “Formulas Fatal to the Flesh” influences on “Ego te Provoco”. The Death Metal presented by Scent of Death is brutal, technical and a bit dark. To be honest, nothing you haven’t heard before. But it’s very well played and executed and therefore enjoyable. Put them on a tour with Hour of Penance and I think you will give the fans of the genre a nice evening. (Ricardo)
