Deathchain are a new band from planet Finland who play a very extreme form of thrash metal. In fact, aside from some thrashy riffs at times, this is pretty much what one would refer to as Death Metal. Snarls, growls, blistering speed and machine gunning drums all over; however it does lack the extensive use of double bass kicks quite prevalent in the death metal genre.
From start to finish, "Deadmeat Disciples" delivers a towering display of what speed is all about. There are many albums out there that never slow down in their entirety, but this one is particularly worth noting as some solos here are reminding of that colossal album from the eighties called "Darkness Descends". This is exactly the type of stuff that is designed to get you head-banging, so be prepared for an aching neck after this disc is done with you.
I do however feel that this album would have benefited from clear vocals. It appears that the band is trying to be more extreme than they themselves can administer. Crisp, speedy vocals would probably have sounded much better with these types of unrelenting aural assaults…but that's just my opinion on making this even better than it is….Mighty riffs and blazing speed however compensate for that little problem so I'm not going to nail them to the cross for that.
A high quality death/thrash serving worth taking a bite of.
