F.D.A. Rekotz have been putting out some killer stuff lately, what with the latest from Skeletal Remains and Chapel Of Disease. The Sacrifice EP from Brazilian bred, German-based upstarts Incarceration carries on this trend, standing as a very promising introduction to a band I certainly hope to hear more from in the future.

Blending some homegrown Brazilian influences ala Sepultura or even Torture Squad together with some sickening Swedish influence cut from the likes of Dismember, Repugnant and early Entombed/Nihilist, Incarceration come off sounding quite a bit like Excoriate – although a little more succinct – which is fine in my book. The vocals are ideal here, and certainly fall into my preferred style in the genre. Mixing in some early Max Cavalera with Matti Kärki and mixed to a style similar to that of Repugnant or Vampire.

Performance and production are just right for the sound Incarceration are aiming for, and their approach is decidedly straight to the point. I can imagine these songs would be a lot of fun live, as they're all fairly speedy riff bludgeons; perfect for letting off some steam. Whilst this sound has been done quite a bit, it's certainly something I personally can't get enough of, especially considering Incarceration play with boundless energy and conviction, making this all the more enjoyable and believable. A cracking EP that fans of old school death metal should seek without hesitation, doubly so if the fusion of Brazilian and Swedish schools sounds particularly enticing. It's jus a shame this is over too soon!
