"BEHOLD THE ASCENSION OF THE EXECRATED"
"BEHOLD THE ASCENSION OF THE EXECRATED" is the newest offering from
Cleveland, Ohio's own MANTICORE. These guys have been spewing forth their brand of
Black / Death Metal since 2000. They play a really tuned down and dirty style of Black
Metal that is infused with old school Death Metal influences. The music has a really gritty
and some what noisy sound to it. At times the song arrangements remind me of old do it
yourself Punk Rock from the 70's and early 80's. The vocals are done in a mid ranged throaty
and groggy Death / Black Metal growl style. MANTICORE sounds like a lot of the Black
Metal bands that were popping up in the early 90's coming out of Europe. If you were a fan
of most of the Black / Death Metal bands that were released by the great, unfortunately no
longer running, labels WORLD WAR III & NECROPOLIS RECORDS, then your gonna
love these guys. Fans of NIDEN DIV. 187, DISSECTION, MAZE OF TORMENT &
SATANIC SLAUGHTER should definitely pick this one up!!!
