Review Flash

BATTLESWORD is a German five-piece Death Metal Juggernaut that has been formed in 1999. The band will release their fourth full-length record on Friday the 16th of September 2022. Style-wise the bands style can be described as Death Metal that is so atmospheric that it sometimes almost borders on Thrash Metal, the vocals are rough but not as soul grinding and skin liquefying brutal as a band like NEW WORLD DEPRESSION or LIK for example. The overall more melodic approach to the subgenre is refreshing to be honest, not everything has to sound like it’s pushed through a meat grinder (just my opinion please don’t throw excrements again). I really appreciate the feeling of emotional and intellectual depth these guys manage to transport through their songwriting and the execution of the compositions. Normally Death Metal is more or less a blunt force applied to express yourself, the labour pains the artist and his audience have to suffer through in order to reach a higher truth or some kind of deeper meaning in this bitter and heartless world. I don’t know if this is a compliment but if I had to create a mixtape for the apocalypse, BATTLESWORD would be represented with ‘The Shores Of I’.

Conclusion: A Peeling is a rather rough way to clean your skin, BATTLESWORD does the same with your immortal soul...
