Premiere: Come Back From The Dead Horrifies Us with “Endless Bloodshed”
Spain has been a hotbed of interesting metal for decades, and in recent years has been a powerhouse of good death metal. Some of my absolute favorite recent death metal bands, such as the mighty Domains or Graveyard, spawned from Spain’s rich death metal scene, as has one of my favorite newer record labels, the powerful Memento Mori.
Rising from this same scene comes the next great Spanish death metal band, Come Back From The Dead, featuring members of Bokluk and Nashgul and finally ready to bash in our collective heads with another swirling and seething slab of classic death metal- their first release since their debut full length, The Coffin Earth’s Entrails, came out in 2014. The riffs on this first track, “Endless Bloodshed,” slither and squirm as howling vocals call forth an anthem of death, decay, and endless hunger. The goal of Come Back From The Dead is to swamp us in the twisted leads of the ancient Finnish scene in between crushing rhythms and grave-calling vocals, and this track certainly brings the twisted evil that you’d expect for the style.
Featuring a cover from accomplished artist Cesar Valladares and a mastering job from Henrik Jonsson (perhaps best known for his work with Merciless, Unleashed, and Grave), this EP (coming soon on CD from Transcending Obscurity and 10″ vinyl from Mono Canibal) won’t be a release to be missed.
