First off, I must confess that I am not too fond of Thailand's underground Metal scene. I know they have some sort of a scene there but that's about it. Savage Deity, formed in 2011, recorded their debut album, Amulet of Sin, in 2013 and put it out via the small Utah-based underground label Slaughterhouse Records.
What you are get is nine songs of straightforward Thrash and Death Metal that reeks of the old school and, in fact, resembles the demo days of Sadistic Intent quite a bit, which makes things cooler in my opinion being a big fan of those LA Death Metal masters. Twish on bass and vocals reminds me a lot of Bay Cortez with his evil, snarly growls. Savage Deity's music flows very well and, even though it offers nothing new under the darkened sky, I wasn't expecting anything groundbreaking from them after a quick glance at the album cover alone. Savage Deity's cover version of Death's "Evil Dead" doesn't have the needed ass kicking value I was hoping it would have. I cannot blame them too much because it's really hard for any band to cover Death's songs properly. Well, you can always try.
This is vicious, mean and aggressive underground stuff to the bone and, if you are happy with the kind of sound being described here, nothing should really stop you checking out Savage Deity.
