Czech maniacs Maniac Butcher return after some 10 years with Masakr, determined to kick your ass – and that, they do. Raw, chaotic, thrashing Black Metal rapes your speakers for nearly half an hour - just the perfect length for such a devastating onslaught. Unintelligible, visceral rasps take center stage like a fucking demon haunting your mind, while the drums blast away incessantly - no incessant blast beat crap, just some thunderous hammering of the skins.

Mid to fast-paced, Masakr varies from haunting and menacing, kind of suspenseful, all the way to a blackened speedfest that destroys everything in its path. No fancy guitar work, though the delivery at slower speed is pretty damn effective in creating a bone-chilling atmosphere. Throw in some good old school, basic and savage riffage, the kind of stuff you expect from Maniac Butcher and you've got a party. The decent production doesn't deter the raw nature of the material here; it simply ensures that your ears are meticulously assaulted by this sonic assault. Looking forward to hearing more stuff from these guys.
