French label Nihilistic Holocaust really likes cassettes, and to be honest so do I. The latest release comes in the form of Philadelphia based death metal-band Trenchrot.
Trenchrot, while being from the US, hasn’t really got the typical US-Death Metal sound. I’d rather say that the sound is more European with some splashes of stuff like Autopsy. This type of Old School Death Metal has really been trending during the past few years, and honestly, I see no problem with this as long as it is done tastefully and with fervour and soul. Within a scene where a lot of bands doesn’t succeed to stand above the rest, Trenchrot is a band that do.
I wouldn’t go as far as saying that Trenchrot is something beyond most of today’s bands in the New Wave of Old School Death Metal-scene, but dammit! When the three tracks on this demo are over, I choose to<<–Rewind & > Press play on tape.
