Relentless Disease

Rated 4/5 (80%) (8 Votes)

Brazilian Death/Thrash Metal commandos Krow have been making brutal noise since 2006, with one EP (Contempt for You in 2006) and a couple of studio albums (Before the Ashes in 2009 and Traces of the Trade in 2012) thus far.

Krow's most recent release, a two-song EP titled Relentless Disease, was just released digitally (it will also will be available in a physical format in July 2014) and its purpose is to promote the band's forthcoming album, to be released later in the year.

These two songs featured on the EP are truly heavy shit; Death Metal mixed with some flavors of Thrash Metal. The title track, "Relentless Disease," reminds me of Napalm Death's Death Metal era, with a rocking, groove-laden main riff pushing the song forward, combined with some chest-squeezing brutality that you get from their country-mates, Krisiun. The other song, "Whore Born," is done in true Deicide/Krisiun fashion and all the brutality and intensity that they have squeezed into this track makes your bones ache. It doesn't hurt that guitarist and vocalist Guilherme Miranda sounds almost like Mr. Benton's twin brother.

I am directing my curious ears in Krow's direction. I want to hear more as these two new songs have really made me hungry for more.
