Breeding Devastation

Rated 2.43/5 (48.57%) (7 Votes)

This album sounds almost exactly like what you would expect from a band named Scythe Beast – ripping, aggressive Death/Black/Thrash metal with savage, gargly vocals barking out stuff about war and demons and death and shit. There is more than a bit of similarity to bands like Desaster, and with their German pedigree, a hint of classic works like Sodom in their younger days. What Scythe Beast do to retain a dash of individuality is add in a melodic sense and an almost Gothenburg flair to their leads, all mixed together it makes them sound a lot like God Dethroned in places, though much thrashier and not so blasty. It all this makes you think Scythe Beast are derivative, well they are, but that doesn't mean this is not a crushing, flailing good time, because it is.
