Dave Rotten and Rogge Johansson need no introduction; both guys have been involved with many bands and projects, of which Putrevore is one. These two fellows have already released a couple of full-length albums (Morphed from Deadbreath in 2008 and Macabre Kingdom in 2012) and now they have teamed up again to record a song titled "A Cold Grasp in the Night" for a split 7-inch EP with Mexican death-mongers Putrefact.

What else can one expect from Dave and Rogga, except old-fashioned brutal Death Metal to the max? Well, that's exactly what you get. "A Cold Grasp in the Night" is a speedy Death Metal song that reminds me of something US Death Metal veterans Cannibal Corpse might churn out, spiced with some of the eerie moments Demigod are masters of.

Mexican trio Putrefact relies on heavy, grind-oriented Death Metal for their song "Morbido Obscuro." They sound as dangerous and frightening as a filthy hound of Hades. In fact, from a distance, they remind me a little of US underground legends Necrovore, which is always great in my unholy book.

If you are a die-hard collector of Death Metal vinyl, then this is something I strongly recommend. This EP is 100% true death!!
