Degenerhate - Chronicles Of The Apocalypse

Degenerhate is a five piece band from Italy. Members are, Gianluca Lucarini: lead guitar-screaming/backing vocals, Marco Paparella: bass guitar, Renato Lucandri: vocals/grunts, Stuart Franzoni: drums, Angelo Vernati: rhythm guitar. Genre described as Grindcore.

Chronicles Of The Apocalypse album released on Sliptrick Records 2014. This album contains nineteen songs, my first impression, like a battering ram to the face. Extreme aggression comes purring through my speakers from the moment I hit the play button. Blistering grind/blast beats and raw guitar riffing coupled with low/high vocals will make your skin fall off. The songs are short but they deliver a punishing blow. Grind is the name of the game and that's exactly what they deliver. In terms of production, the quality is very good. The drums are solid and guitars had killer distortion along with a heavy bass tone to fill the ground level. It makes the walls crumble.

There's a couple of samples like on the tracks Earth First and Fur is Dead which deal with extinction and are fitting for the songs. Among the tracks I enjoyed the most are "Another You Another", I liked the chorus and it is slightly slower the the previous songs. "New World Disorder", crushing guitar rhythms and grinding blast make this one to mosh to. "Running Through the Blood", although somewhat different as far as production, like it was recorded at at different time. It has memorable passages and intense drums.

Final thoughts, the music will crush your senses, delivering and intense ride without any dull moments. Fans of Brutal Truth, Unrest, Cretin, old Napalm Death, and Terrorizer will want to add this one to their collection. ~Artemortifica
