The Review:

Next up for our enjoyment is this lovely/horrific little split EP from Germany's Revel In Flesh and Mexico's Zombiefication. Revel In Flesh are up first with the muscular and effective “The Dead Will Walk The Earth”. Euro death metal for sure, with elements of their cousins from Scandinavia in the sound. The tempos are changed around, the riffs run the length of the fretboard. The vocals are low and very powerful and the band simply storms its way through the track with bad intentions. I had not heard these Deutsche heroes before, but I will be checking out the back catalogue for sure. It is extensive with three full lengths and other releases in only three years. A perfect introduction for these Teutonic titans of death.

Zombiefication, meanwhile, do what they do best. “The Eyeless Horde” positively rips forth from the opening exhortation. It has the sound of a demo- rough and ready with plenty of spite. The last two albums from these guys have absolutely slayed me- it's interesting to hear a more necro version of the band on this split. If sonically the sound is of the grave, the band is very much on form and bring a great mix of death metal with dynamics as well as fury. “Eternity's Oblivion” is a punk infused blast of death metal that is as energetic as it is dark. Zombiefication are one of the best death metal bands around at the minute, I would say, as their sound is unusual and they have an atmospheric sound that other death metal bands do not.
