HerezA – I Become Death
HerezA, who hails from the country of Croatia, plays a carefully crafted blend of early Swedish-styled death metal, with slight hints of extreme hardcore, with darkened elements that’ll make the listener feel miserable.
The music on this album reminds a lot of early Dismember, Carnage, Nihilist and Autopsy, but with a much gloomier and darker approach to the overall aesthetics of the songs.
“Full Moon Slaughter” is probably the only track here, which has somewhat of an upbeat but groove-laden feel to it. The melodically played riffing throughout this song definitely gives it a unique edge over the other tracks here, as it sounds a bit different than the other songs found on the album.
HerezA’s guitar tone and crunch have plenty of Dismember, early Entombed and Autopsy influences, which makes for an ear bleeding of an experience, as it feels like your eardrums are exploding.
“I Become Death” is not the most unique of death metal albums I’ve heard, but the apocalyptic and end of the world feelings created throughout the ten cuts here make for a hellish listening affair. This is the style of death metal you listen to when you’re getting ready to fight someone, as it has plenty of pissed-off, aggressive moments, whereby you just want to kick some ass!
There is close to 45 minutes worth of mind obliterating and nerve deadening extreme metal here to leave even the most experienced extreme music fan comatose. Calling all graveyard desecrators and corpse violators, as HerezA is bound to leave you dying for more of their auditory torture. Godz Of War Productions Sarjoo Devani
