take  it  easy 

Athanatos--Unholy  Union  Demotape   {Iron Bonehead Rec.}Another  killer  band  from  Chile  this  time  it  is   Athanatos   who  play a  very  good  style  of  early death/thrash  metal.The  guitars  are  done  with  some  vicious  guitar  riffs  and few  solo's  mixed  in  the  songs. The  drumming  is  top  notch  with  some  really  good  beats that  go  from  mid-to  fast  beats .The  vocalist  does  a great  job  keeping up  with  the  chaotic  music.with  some  gruff  screams and  death growls.This  is  a  must  have  for  all those  who  still  worship and  collect  tapes.

 Children Of  Technology--Future  Decay  cd,Lp  {Hells  headbangers Rec.}
Italy's  Children Of Technology   return  after  four  years  with  their  second  full-length.With  their  cross-over  thrashy punk  they  are  one of  the  best  in  the  scene.The  guitars  are  fast  punkish  type  guitar  riffs  with  some  heavier and faster  thrash  parts  entertwined  in  the  music.The  drummer  is really  good  with keeping  the  pace between   faster drumming beats and  more of a  mid-pace range.The  vocalist does a good job  with  the  screams and  even  some  deeper vocals.This  is a  band  who  knows  how to  play  thrash and punk and do  botoh  scene's  justice.

Moloch--Verwustung  cd  
This  is  the  new  release  from the  one man  band  Moloch.Sergi  does a great  job with  the  vocals  with some  very  good  screams and  blackend  shrieks.Musically  I  would say  it  is  heavily  influenced by  ambient  with  a  strong  dose  of  black metal.If  you  enjoy   early to  mid  90's  black metal  with a lot  of  ambient and atmosphere blackend metal  you  should   give  this  band  a  listen.

Open  Grave--Fear   cd   {Regimental Rec.}
New Jersey's  Open Grave  have  unleashed  their  debut  full-length Fear. Black Metal  at  it  finest the  biggest  change I can  hear to  the band is they  have some  keyboards  in a few songs .compared to  the  split cd and demo  which was  pure black metal.But  the  keyboards are done very well  and  works  within  the  new songs.For  the  long time fans  their  is  still plenty of raging and vicious black metal  but  also  some really well played  mid-paced parts with the  keyboards.This is  a  highly  recommended release  from  one of the  U.S best black Metal bands
