Presages/Eyes of Madness

Rated 4/5 (80%) (5 Votes)

Brazilian Death Metal tornados Khrophus have been on their crusade since 1993. As their releases have been available in quite limited quantities, their material has been overall hard to find. Because of this, Argentinian label Grinder Cirujano Records decided to help with this situation a little bit by releasing the band's second (Presages) and third (Eyes of Madness) albums on one disc. This was a good call from the label.

Musically, this Brazilian trio offers sort of a meat-and-potatoes type of Death Metal in which they really don't manage to go outside of their comfort zone at all. It's pretty technical, well executed and all that, but it's just not enough as there are hundreds or even thousands of similar bands out there that play a similar style. Obviously, they do have the drive to reach something similar to their fellow countrymen Krisiun in intensity, but don't quite get there at any point. However, drummer Carlos Fernandes must be a human drum machine. He beats his skins like a crazy lunatic, adding loads of sheer unrelenting intensity and brutality into the band's relatively generic Death Metal approach.
