Lest anyone accuses me of being biased & an anti-local scene snob, here's two absolutely delightful albums me discovered on a blog dedicated to the more extreme end of the metal spectrum (Brutal Zone -http://brutalzone.blogspot.com/).
Sorry, me has been out of the touch with the scene fer quite a while now & when me was still active, the local scene was dominated by the likes of Sil Khannaz, Suffercation, Silent Death & Koffin Kanser. Many of these bands are still active but me was well chuffed t discover these two new names.
Ladies & Gents,
Allow me to introduce Tools of the Trade & Necrotic Chaos!
Both fall under the extreme death/grindcore genre & both have a suitably garage feel to them. However, it does not detract from the fooking blunt force trauma yer skull is subjected to when you've got the volume at full tilt! Like the best examples of this extreme genre, the drums sound like cluster bombs going off while guitars are yer typical buzzsaw cutting thru steel sound.
Tools of the Trade's Innate Consumption actually bear more than a passing resemblance to Scum-era Napalm Death with screeching vocals over a million-miles-an-hour-metal bludgeoning yer senses silly. Even the bass intros have a nice fat feel to it just like Birmingham's finest.
As fer the Necrotic Choas's Regime Grotesque, it's more Death metal circa early Morbid Angel or Autopsy. And a damn fine effort it is too! Riffs aplenty & the playing throughout is suitably frantic fer some serious fooking dandruff removal!
Personally me is more inclined towards Tools of the Trade fer its old school grind but well done to both bands! Yer albums are testimony that Malaysia fooking Boleh!
If you consider yerself a true patriot, please download the following albums & see what sort of fooking noize Malaysians are capable of generating!
