Getting Laid At Bandcamp – The Bestial Edition

Tyree is taking you on a journey through some fine filthy bestial metal

Ululatum TolluntOrder of the Morningstars (2016)

Southern filthy assault at its finest. Ululatum Tollunt play a style of bestial war metal that sounds like it was spewed from the humid graves of the south. There is so much filth and grit here that it makes the full-on strike of Order of the Morningstars an absolute sludge bath of violent proportions. I’m talking a 100 degree room with a rotting corpse in the bathtub. When you listen to this demo you can almost smell that accelerated putrefaction happening under your nose. The filth is not the only ugly thing about this demo though; no it’s not! The raid of Order of the Morningstars is nonstop. The drums never let up as if the drummer was on some sort of war drug that influenced him to crush two hundred human skulls per minute on the battlefield. The drug was a huge success by the way. Brace your self for an ugly display of ear savagery.

Massive RetaliationSecond Strike (2016)

This two man bestial force includes members from the black metal horde Death Fortress. Massive Retaliation play a no frills style of bestial war metal. This is an aggressive, raw onslaught that doesn’t give up. We have full on blasting mayhem that only stops for some of the most crushing down-tuned grooves. Vocals range from high pitched war shrieks to guttural demonized barks. If you are looking for a clean and polished sound, Massive Retaliation may not be for you. I suggest that you try and listen past the raw murk and embrace the war perfection that this band brings.

Profane OrderMarked by Malice (2016)

The first track may sound slow and somewhat boring, but that’s just the calm before the war-storm. Once “Ad Nauseam” starts at the 4:18 mark it’s time for blood. Profance Order are interesting in that the music is violently bestial but the vocals come off as almost hardcore. Usually I’m not a huge fan of modern day hardcore vocals but I have to say that I enjoy the fuck out of these. It adds a whole new twist to the bestial sound. If bestial black metal is not your thing I think Profane Order will be an exception. The riffs are strong and clear. The drumming is absolutely obliterating, and on top of that they are also tight as hell. Sometimes they even have some punk moments that add a different dynamic to the song structures which I really dig.

HexenslaughtDemo (2016)

Necrovore, anyone? Anyone? Did I see a hand up in the back there? No, ok. Bueller? If any of you hardcore death metal maniacs don’t know who Necrovore is then you are a complete and utter fucking… Nope, not going to say it. I’m better than that. Who am I kidding, I’m not. YOU FUCKING POSERS!!! This demo still holds as my favorite demo release of this year and maybe my favorite overall release as well. There are not a lot of bands that tackle this sound and Hexenslaught do it to a fucking tee! Raw and abrasive oldschool thrashin’ blackened deathmetal is the name of the game here flushers. This demo does not disappoint. For fans of the First Morbid Angel demos, Necrovore demo, and the early Poison (Germany) demos.

Pigs BloodDemo (2015)

This is one one of my most played cassettes of this year. While it’s not a 2016 release Pigs Blood do however need to be known.  This is probably the most well-crafted bestial war metal content I’ve heard, song wise. You can tell that these guys really thought these songs out instead of just blasting through each song. There are lots of stop and go moments and some pretty complex drum fills and rhythmic patterns throughout the demo. Vocals are one of my favorite components of this demo in that they range from all sorts of different styles. We have our violent high shrieks, low guttural barks, and, my favorite, the pitch shifted gurgles which add a bit of a grind element to their sound. Guitars have a bone-crushing tone that complements the violent riffage. Pigs Blood is top-notch crushing mayhem.

    Gonna check these after work. I don’t know if my coworkers could handle it. Hell, I’m not even sure I can.

    You’ve mentioned Pigs Blood before, definitely giving that a listen first.

    I also enjoy your use of “poser”

    • That Pigs Blood album is quality. Enjoy! It’s a real skull crusher.

  • Elegant Gazing Globe

    Fuck yes Tyree

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    That Hexensalught demo is fucking ridiculous.

    • RepostedAvengedSevenfoldFan2

      Man i really want this guys to play at my birthday wonder how i can get a hold of them.

      -joe rotter, 2 years ago

  • For those that are interested. The second pressing of the Hexensalught demo (cassette) is available from Invictus Productions. Shirts are coming at the end of this month! Also forgot to mention that the singer just recently died. RIP.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Well that blows.

    • sweetooth0

      I hadda bite on that. 12 bucks is kinda steep for a tape (with the shipping and whatnot), but your praise of it makes me think it is money well spent!

    • sweetooth0

      I take it you read the blurb on the bandcamp where they talk about that Slayer Mag CD compilation of the three demos. I looked it up on discogs. It can be had for a mere 50 Euro + shipping!!!!

      • Haha, yeah I saw that. I didn’t look it up on Discogs though. That’s not as bad as I thought it might be.

        • sweetooth0

          I am admittedly contemplating it for a later time. I’ll even send the rip to Hexenslaught like they say for laughs!

    “…absolute sludge bath of violent proportions. I’m talking a 100 degree room with a rotting corpse in the bathtub.”


    Also: I’m digging Massive Retaliation! The Hexenslaught and Pigs Blood demos are ridiculously good.

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    This bestial shit never gets old. Listening to snippets of the first three and digging it!!

    • Agreed!!! Sarcofago, Beherit, and Blasphemy worship FTW. Total Death!

  • more beer

    Glad you are doing this again. It is one of my favorite things here-

  • Waynecro

    Nice fucking work, Tyree! These songs shredded my junk. My scrote looks like a whoopee cushion that got run over by a riding mower.

  • Thanks for posting this. Wasn’t sure if it would go live or not. I’m not much of a writer, I just like to share the metal.

  • 365ChaosRiddenDays

    All is rabid and killer in this post, thanks, I like when blood comes out of my ears!

  • Pigs Blood takes the cake. Damn!


  • W.

    Pigs Blood demo is pretty rad. It’s giving me strong vibes of something else, but I can’t quite nail it down at the moment.

    • Let me know what it is once you figure it out. I’m curious to know. This band has a bit of a grindcore sound to them. Not sure if that sparks anything or not.

    • You ever figure it out?

  • The Tetrachord of Archytas

    Whatever part of me could be considered an alley….profane order is riiiiiight up it

    • Hint: It’s the part where the poop comes out.

      • The Tetrachord of Archytas

        That explains the violent sensations

  • Count_Breznak

    Huh, Profane Order and Pigs Blood actually got something one might call “production”.

  • sweetooth0

    Oooooooh yeah!! Was listening to Caveman Cult and then saw this post. Just blasting that Ululatum Tollunt now. UUUGGGGHHHH!!!!

  • nbm02ss

    These are pleasing to my ear holes.

    I wish Pigs Blood wasn’t sold out.

    • Yeah, that sucks. KSoFM wanted one too. I might buy a shirt. They are only $10. Although I have no idea what they look like. Lol

      • sweetooth0

        I’m guessing that pig head on the plate image, but ya never know.

    • Señor Jefe El Rosa

      Same here!

  • Óðinn
  • Jack Rabbit

    Pigs Blood and Profane Order probably stood out the most to me, killer stuff. Really well written article.

  • suh-weet! good to see more Tyree articles!

  • Ty! This Profane Order is cool! Thanks fior sharing, dude!

  • Shrimp in a Pizza Box

    Whatever price you’re willing to pay for that Profane Order record, it’d be a steal. Dick thoroughly crushed.
