ZATOKREV
ZATOKREV
EARACHE

This self-titled five-track affair from this Swiss unit is a sinewy offering that evokes comparisons to such atmospheric metal troupes as Isis and Cult of Luna. Tracks like the thunderously bass-driven “C Through” take a turn into sludgeville, sounding like Crowbar at its most vicious, while the death-defying screams audible on “Alive” rival cornerstone voices like Anselmo in brutality and pure sickness. Keeping it crushingly heavy (albeit a short album) throughout, Zatokrev (Czech for “blood for this”) provide a sheer sonic assault through undeniably punishing death metal ambiance.
