Supreme Havoc, these Finnish torchbearers of uncompromising D-beat Doom/Death Metal with some Crust elements, return with a new two-song EP – and they do it with style. Supreme Havoc have always been keen on adopting bits and pieces from the rawest and filthiest Celtic Frost/Hellhammer sound realm, spicing their stuff up with something that made such Swedish Metal acts as Entombed and Furbowl known (both in good and bad) when they started adding more Rock 'n' Roll into their sounds.
Starting off with a song called "Disgust", it's just amazing how much this song reminds me of Chicago's underground heroes Death Strike, specifically the band's demo days. Even Supreme Havoc's frontman, Mika Hankaniemi, growls his guts out the same way as Paul Speckmann did back in 1985. Add some doses of Frost and D-beat madness with a Doom Metal flavor, and you get an idea of how "Disgust" sounds like.
The second song, "Deathwish", takes more of this Furbowl mode, being more on the Doom Metal side, and in fact, pleasing me more personally as Furbowl still remains as one of those finest (underground) Metal acts off the Swedish Heavy metal history. The song sounds also shamelessly crispy and heavy and even pretty darn hypnotic due to this sort of all-crushing atmosphere that the guys have been able to build around this particular track. "Deathwish" is definitely my favorite Supreme Havoc song.
