KEITZER – The Last Defence (CD)
German extremists Keitzer play an insane blend of grind/death metal, with speeds exceeding 150 miles per hours at times. “The Last Defence” is an extreme slab of down tuned misery and speed antics that would make Napalm Death, Carcass and Deicide kill with joy.
With a strong studio sound and production, the 14 tracks on here are like heat seeking missiles, once they lock in on their target, you’re basically out of luck. Their music is a blistering punishment in ultra, aural sonic bestiality that’ll totally level anything in its path, including you.
Imagine nuclear annihilation with Keitzer’s music as an apocalyptic soundtrack to the ending of all life as we know it. From this you’re thinking, what the fuck? Yes, what the fuck is this unholy death/grind beast known as Keitzer – they’re a war machine hell-bent on destroying the world and enslaving any survivors from their aftermath of total destruction and rabid plague spreading.
This is a very solid album and can stand toe to toe with the likes of early Aborted, Napalm Death, Unseen Terror, Extreme Noise Terror and Brutal Truth. These guys are more deadly than the atom bomb; so once you put this bitch on your stereo, kiss your ass goodbye, because their unrelenting guitars and heart stopping death/grind will seriously grind you down to the ground. Keitzer’s extreme music is definitely not for the faint of heart or even lacking in any sort of open mindedness.
