Info

Carbonized Records have just put out a very cool looking new 7″ vinyl release featuring two Death Metal bands, French quartet Skelethal and French/Canadian four piece Outre-Tombe. Quebecois Outre-Tombe (Translates to Beyond the Grave) are on Side A with their new track ‘Sacrilege’. If rampaging riffs with a thick gloomy atmosphere is your thing then you’ll be right at home here. ‘Sacrilege’ is a fast paced dose of lo-fi Death Metal, driven forth by carnage inducing drum tones, raw savage vocals and simplistic guitar leads contrasted by dazzling guitar solos. It feels a little cluttered in places by the sheer destructiveness of the bands sound sees them through.

Side B features Lille band Skelethal’s offering, entitled ‘Carnal Deceivers’, which offers up pretty much the same thing as Outre-Tombe, only with better production and mixing and as a result, a slightly more cavernous sound. Skelethal can also boast a catchier sound and their vocal work is of a more intensive growling nature.

A decent little split release, although prices on this range from $13 to $16 which for a ten minute record seems a little steep. That said, the artwork looks damn cool!
