Blast Into Oblivion

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

If you are in to raw, heavy and brutal - and definitely old school - Death Metal, then hands up! Good. Germany's Reckless Manslaughter might well be a band for you. Reckless Manslaughter self-released their debut album, Storm of Vengeance, in 2011 with a print run limited to 666 copies. The band undoubtedly made a name for themselves in underground circles with that record, trusting simple, raw Death Metal like a mad butcher trusts his favorite tool.

Blast into Oblivion, the title of these Death Metal commandos' follow-up album, continues the band's march on the fields of death, counting on their most crushingly heavy, slow-to-mid-tempo moments to get their point across. In a way, Reckless Manslaughter remind me of early Asphyx, a bit of Bolt Thrower and some Six Feet Under but they may evoke other bands as well as it's all in the ear of the individual listener.

Execution wise, they serve up their stripped down and heavy Death Metal flawlessly, making no compromises but without any extra ear candy either. These German death mongers want to keep it simple but, then again, most of the time that's all that is needed to make an impact. Reckless Manslaughter surely know exactly who their audience is and who this type of groove orientated Death Metal targets. Good stuff indeed.
