All Life Erased

Rated 3/5 (60%) (2 Votes)

Where do all these new bands come from? I have no idea but the relentless and testosterone-fueled Finnish troops known as Gian have a 10-year history and several demos so I’m not sure how I missed them.

Gian’s 11-song debut album isn’t bad at mixing mixing Black, Death and even Thrash Metal into one whole. Even clean vocals invade the otherwise furious and aggressive music (check out the song called "Bloodstorm"). The riffing in "ZombieChrist" swings the axe in the name of Slayer, especially at the very beginning of the song, which is cool. This song features shouted, hardcore vocals which make things a little bit sweeter for an old Punk/Hardcore fan me. There are a few modern Metal elements incorporated into this record that provide feel less of the severe kicks in the butt, however the main emphasis is still on the well-matched marriage of blackened Death and Thrash Metal so it’s pretty hard to not dig All Life Erased. The guys deliver some serious punches to the face and manage to cause a bruise or two so be prepared to suffer a little pain to get your pleasure.

All Life Erased isn’t a bad debut album from Gian but they would be better served by leaving the modernized shit out and concentrating on the brutal musical punishment they deliver most of the time.
