Ah yes. Eastern European extreme metal is always welcome here. Cold Execution was originally released as a CD-R demo in 2006 and is now re-issued on CD and in digital download form by Black Plague Records. The backbone of this is old school Black/Thrash, while the drumming and some of the guitar work is closer to Death Metal. The vocals - just like some guitar parts - remind me a lot of Impaled Nazarene: Very vicious, hate-filled harsh rasps. Most of the songs are fast-paced "take no prisoners" numbers with the occasional slow downs, a style closer to the Scandinavian bands than to what usually comes out of Poland, although you can hear a little bit of that sound here and there - a good mix of both of these schools of extreme metal. The title track closes the onslaught with a more slow to mid-paced, more atmospheric vibe. A little on the depressing side, with slow, agonizing vocals and more "melodic" and heavy music playing - a sharp contrast with the preceding songs (excluding the first track which is a very quiet intro.)
I don't know if the material was re-recorded, but either way the sound is very good - vocals and instruments all come out clear, with just enough rawness. Hopefully we'll be seeing a proper album from Moloch Letalis in the very near future.
