REINCARNATION – Void + Seed Of Hate (CD)
Spain’s brutal and guttural death metal war machine Reincarnation was a strong contender back in the mid to late nineties.
This reissue of their 1997 album “Void” shows just how freaking this Spanish death metal legion was. This album had all of the makings from Suffocation’s “Human Waste” ep and “Effigy Of The Forgotten” LP with hints from Cannibal Corpse and Gorguts. Xtreem Music out of Madrid, Spain issued “Void + Seed Of Hate”, which features four of their MCD tracks from 1995, a promo cut as well as four live songs from 1998. Now having experienced this band via a live recording, I can only imagine Reincarnation brought the clubs crashing down with their ultra brutal death. With 18 songs on here, just with a little of an hours worth of grueling and abysmal torture, you are in for the physical as well as emotional torture of your life.
Their playing on “Void” is tight, technical to a certain degree, and outright in your face, as you’re not even given a breather. The guitar rhythms along with the blast beat drumming assaults feel like bombs going off within your ear canals.
The vocals are semi-deep and guttural to the point of smashing your cranium to millions of pieces.
This is not your ordinary type of death metal, as it is pulsing and full of enough loathing to unleash your inner demons. Don’t pass this one up, as it is sure to kick your ass hard! [Xtreem] Sarjoo Devani
