Braindrill / Origin “Apocalyptic Feasting / Antithesis (2008)

In the year of 2008
After a rather long wait
Finally they arrive,
By grace of fate.

The two albums come,
With fireworks and fanfare.
They promise salvation,
To those who are aware.

The first, a record
By the outfit called Braindrill
The second, by Origin
Settings set to “kill”.

Braindrill’s release
a follow-up to the EP Parasites.
The new one is sick
and technically even more tight.

The production’s even more crisp,
And the new songs sounds great.
Wonderful wankery, and
songs about killing and hate.

The imagery and packaging
are all brutal to the extreme
Its the playing and the structures
That makes this the cream of the cream

While you sing along to
Force Fed Human Shit
You can marvel at technicality
and at the musical wit

The older tracks and the new ones
gel together fine
Showing the band was mature
Way before its time

Moving on to Origin
and Antithesis’s greatness
Its safe to say
That death metal is blessed

Blessed with the return
of cosmic brutality
And themes of a more
Universal reality

The ridiculous sweeps
and the triple vocal attack
Will reel you in,
There’s no turning back.

The beautiful songs
and amazing rhythms
will take you to nirvana
and to hades with them.

The album is a winner
by the kings of the underground
and even has progression
With melodic leads and new sounds

But it remains Origin
Even in the epic title track
At nine minutes plus
It will still have you coming back

The album will leave you
Battered and dead
It is half-an-hour
But an aeon in the head.

So endeth my verses
About these new cd’s
if you are into tech death
You need to get these

They do not compromise
The death metal atmosphere
Yet go so much forward
where others fear

There are no breakdowns
No boring parts
Just a frentic insanity
Straight from the heart.

Here’s to a really good extreme metal year !!!
