From Forgotten Worlds

Rated 4.14/5 (82.86%) (7 Votes)

Poland's Hellthrasher Productions is a label that offers a paradise of new music for Death Metal fans. They firmly believe in the power of pure old-school Death Metal, as is heard on almost every release they have put out, including this recent one from Canada's Auroch, titled From Forgotten Worlds. The band started out under the name Tusk, playing Thrash Metal but the music soon evolved into a heavier sound. The style to Death Metal was completed with the new name, Auroch.

From Forgotten Worlds does not hide the band's Thrash roots; they are still there but wrapped in a strong Death Metal sound. I hear a lot of breaks and rhythm changes in their song structures that are similar to Thrash. In a way, Auroch reminds me of the now defunct Detroit-based Thrash/Death Metal act Fatal, especially that band's Souls Burn/A Somber Evocation of Nihilism era (1989-91). So yeah, I find Auroch's old-school Death/Thrash appealing and exciting. The guys have a good vibe on the record, even if it isn't always easy to follow some of the more technical aspects of the songs. Good Death Metal is still good Death Metal, and Auroch belongs on the good side.
