Review: 'Creeping Flesh'
'Rising Terror (EP)'   

-  Genre: 'Thrash Metal' -  Release Date: '18th April 2015'

Our Rating:
I don’t really need to review this. Check the band’s name (presumably lifted from the 1973 horror featuring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing), the EP’s title. Have a gander and the brutal, scrawly fonts. It’s pretty obvious that the Swedish five-piece play death metal with war and torture as the main themes, and that they’re heavily inspired by bands such as Bolt Thrower, Hail of Bullets, and Jungle Rot.

So I suppose the critic’s call is as to whether or not it’s any good. And yes, if you dig the aforementioned acts, it is. It’s colossally heavy, the half-tempo trudge segments hit every bit as monumentally hard as the blistering thrashes: there’s no respite, and there’s nothing remotely soft or pussy about this. It’s a gloriously brutal assault, violently guttural vocals pitched against thunderous percussion and a roaring barrage of mangled guitar noise. All of which means it gets my vote!
