TELLUS TERROR – EZ Life DV8 (CD)
This Brazilian six-piece play a wickedly punishing style of death metal infused with some pissed off deathcore with hints of New York style hardcore. What a trippin’ combination, death metal and hardcore mixed up to give your deathcore, 1-2 punch.
Their guitar rhythms are crushingly heavy, and when mixed with the guttural to screamed to actually sung vocals, explosive drumming, and eerie-sounding synthesizers, you’ll be blown away into total ecstasy. The band’s moniker of Tellus Terror sounds weird as well, but definitely goes quite well with their odd time signatures and unsuspecting musical twists and turns.
I love the fiery energy this sextet present on their debut album, as this really stands out on all of their tracks, making for an interesting listen while keeping the listener glued to the speakers. What these guys have created on “EZ Life DV” is highly addictive, probably worse than drugs.
When I was listening to this album, it fired me up with energy and more power than I could handle, as I just felt like taking on the world.
Tellus Terror’s death metal/deathcore is highly recommended for fans of Despised Icon, Sepultura, Meshuggah and Madball. Septic Flesh’s Seth Siro Anton was responsible for the hideous, weird looking album art. I’ll give this album a solid 10 out of 10 for shattering any and all extreme metal boundaries.
