CAULDRON OF HATE - Emperor EP (CD)
Espoo, Finlandia’s Cauldron Of Hate is definitely generating some tsunami-like waves with their latest ep, “Emperor”.
They play a crushing form of death metal with guttural vocals and growls throughout the five tracks featured here. The music on “Emperor” is more in league with Nile, Krisiun and Morbid Angel, and it simply wreaks havoc on your senses. Cauldron Of Hate’s music is not technical, but it is a straightforward wall of sound that falls on the listener with maximum impact, crushing all hope of survival.
Finlandia has a great extreme metal scene with black, death metal and grindcore bands, but Cauldron Of Hate sure does stand apart from the rest of them.
It is C.O.H’s violent and murderous weapons of mass destruction type of performance, as they sound like a bunch of war hungry mercenaries. Even though there are five songs on this ep, it is a superb display of merciless brutality that does not let up from start to finish. This extreme heaviness is what I really enjoy most about this bunch since they know what the true meaning of extreme is.
I cannot wait to check out their full length CD, as I know Cauldron Of Hate definitely will deliver their explosive goods with a full force campaign. [Self-Financed] Sarjoo Devani
