Rated 4/5 (80%) (4 Votes)
This international duo is made up of Canadian Jo Steel (aka Jo Capitalicide, of a billion metal bands and probably as many punk bands) and Spanish Dave Rotten (of Avulsed, Holycide, Putrevore, Rotten and a bunch of others). These guys like to keep busy. Dave does the vocals on this album while Jo handles all the instruments.
In its short timespan, Everwinding Slaughter will pretty much tear down your house to pieces. It kicks off fast and heavy and doesn't stop until the last note. Dave barks his growls expertly, keeping up with the insane speed on display here. Jo's experience in barebones, straightforward heavy metal is audible here, popping up to the surface of this thrashing death metal onslaught quite often. Most of the stuff is pedal-to-the-metal, though Jo eases up on occasion and lets the heaviness take over, to great crushing effect. I've heard quite a few of his albums but this is the first one that's death metal, and I think I like this better. While Everwinding Slaughter doesn't reinvent the genre, it's solid through and through and I've been listening to it back-to-back for a while now and it's fun enough to make it hard to press stop. Good stuff, and I hope this is just the beginning for Weaponry.
