Having just reviewed Coffinborn's ep here comes the other Death metal band from Hungary featuring 'Disguster' on guitar.

The almost jazzy start to 'Triumph Of the Undead' soon gives way to traditional death metal sounds with a little 'grind' thrown in for good measure.

Think i detected the opening riff to 'Reign In Blood' on 'Necromantic Perversion', in fact some of the timing changes and drum patterns were also very Slayer inspired.

Some doom meets slow pounding thrash on 'Morbid Black Oath' a real stand out track, while Slayer riffs return for 'Worship The Imapler'.

'Mutaliation Ritual' at under 2 minutes harkens back to the glory days of 'Grindcore' and that power remains on 'Deranged Massacre'.

Lastly 'Cryptic Butchery' is a real drum driven spped monster, love the chunky riff that comes in half way through and the way they change the songs tempo a really good song to end on.

Rating 8/10
For fans of: Slayer, Morbid Angel, Deicide, Coffinborn
