Dutch death metal troop Deathmarch is ready to unleash carnage and mayhem over the world now with their debut EP Dismember through Black Lion Records, the follow up to their demo that was released earlier in the year.
The band was formed in the city of Amersfoort in 2016 by some good friends and beer drinking companions, with a mutual goal to bring back the primordial sound of death metal, molded admirably from the putrescent components of bands like Entombed, Dismember, Grave, Autopsy, Baphomet, Asphyx, Gorefest and the likes.
The band consists of Quint Meerbeek on guitars (better known as the drummer in the death metal legion Bodyfarm), Dirk Willems on vocals, Olle Oele on drums (ex-Funeral Whore) and Walter Van Kalsbeek on bass (Cavitation, ex-Baatezu, ex-Pleurisy).
“Gastorture”, the opening track, is a roller coaster ride to revisit the vintage era of Swedish and Dutch OSDM, loaded with murderous monster-dread vocals, unremitting gust of vilest riffs, hell-unleashing drumming, and solid, bass-heavy sound.

This is not original nor is it innovative, but just like Nordjevel has taken the Norwegian second-wave black metal template and added more technicality, speed, and production value, Hyperion has improved upon Dissection’s melodic black metal formula in virtually every way. There is plenty of better black (and death) metal coming out of Sweden these days, but Seraphical Euphony is very impressive, goddamned beautiful, and an absolutely invigorating tour de force, worthy of your time and respect.

This is SO good! I’m not a paid music critic so I won’t pretend to be one, all I know is these guys sound Fuckin awesome and everyone needs this album (Unless you’re tone deaf).

While sounding like straight from the turn of the century melodeath at the first listen it still reveals enough little hooks at the next to keep ears if not happy then at least content. And any band who make melodeath on the deathly side, not drowned in weepy synths, have my vote.
Besides, nice to listen to in 2020 for obvious reasons ;) YomaBarr
