Paul Speckmann teamed up with two guys (Seegel and Felix) from German thrashers Witchburner in February 2014 to form an old school Death Metal sounding entity named Cadaveric Poison. And hey, this idea about the joint venture between these guys works immensely well.

This self-titled, 10-track debut effort from this trio bows shamelessly to the past times of proto- and old Death Metal, obviously getting its influences and inspirations from many of Paul's current and past outfits, but also somewhere else as well. However, the bottom line for Cadaveric Poison is: keep it simple, keep it brutal and play with a gut feeling of what good Death Metal should be all about.

There's a fair amount of early Death and early Autopsy, demo-era Massacre, and especially early Morgoth in Cadaveric Poison's harsh and brutal old school Death Metal sound. Again, it's not about inventing the wheel again, but rather making it roll as effortlessly and painlessly as possible. And at that the Cadaveric Poison team does not lack anything: they simply do what they can do best. Straightforward, crunchy and greatly old school sounding Death Metal this is, respecting some traditions. I am sure many of you can also appreciate Cadaveric Poison's efforts on their debut release, to keep things simple and pure underground-ish Death Metal, without any gimmicks whatsoever! I surely did.
