How about some classic death metal from Greece? Gravewards were formed in late 2015 with Subconscious Lobotomy being the bands first offering to the metal world. What made this band stick out for me and is quite cool is that the demo is limited to 300 copies, in a cassette format! How old school is that!? This reeks of old Nihilist, Massacre and the likes. Due to this the production might not be what most of you are looking for, it has that late 80’s, early 90’s quality which I too can find lacking at times (especially old school raw black metal productions) but it’s definitely something I respect.
Subconscious Lobotomy consists of four songs and they are all ok, nothing more nothing less. This is an album where none of the songs sticks out and it basically just goes through without leaving me something to remember it by. As an debut that’s alright though, even a demo, and they can build on this for their upcoming full-length or EP debut. I’ve never reviewed an demo before so wasn’t too sure on what to expect to be fair.
If you’re a fan of the old school death metal sound, old production quality and the likes then this may flirt with you the right way as it could be sort of an trip to your childhood or something. There is a lot better death metal out as of late though so I can only recommend this to the very hardcore fans of the genre.
For fans of: Massacre and Nihilist
