"THE DAWN OF CONSUMMATION AND EMERGENCE"
OLD SCHOOL METAL RECORDS
REPTILIAN DEATH is an old school Death Metal band from India. The band has been
around since 2001 and "THE DAWN OF CONSUMMATION AND EMERGENCE" is
the band second full length release to date. The band features Sahil "The Demonstealer"
Makhija who runs DEMONSTEALER RECORDS & also plays in DEMONIC
RESURRECTION. The band plays a crushing style of old school Death Metal that
comes from the early '90's. Their sound has a combination of European Death Metal and
American Death Metal from that time. The European parts of their sound remind me of a
lot of the stuff that comes out of Sweden as some of the stuff from Greece, France & Italy
from that time. The American Death Metal influences remind me of a lot of the stuff that
was coming out of the Mid West and Florida at the time. The music is tight and fast paced
Death Metal that also has some touches of Thrash Metal at certain points in the music.
There is a cool fast paced grooved out sound that sometimes reminded me of AMON
AMARTH. The vocals are done in a mid ranged Death growl style that has a bit of a
hallowed sound and reminded me of a mix of AMON AMARTH meets ENTOMBED
meets MALEVOLENT CREATION. If you were to take these three bands and add in
some touches of OBITUARY, VADER, HATE ETERNAL to the music, you'd have a
good idea as to what REPTILIAN DEATH sounds like. I love old school Death Metal
bands, because they are what I grew up listening to, so when a band like REPTILIAN
DEATH comes along and plays this style while still sounding fresh I'm gonna keep
listening over and over again. You would have thought these guys were there from the
start, because they certainly sound like they could have been one of the inventors of this
genre. Every Death Metal fan should have these guys in their collection!
