Declaration Of War
Review by JD on February 5, 2010.
Many bands are out there, professing that they are the heaviest, fastest or the loudest... all pretty much chest thumping. The whole lot of them without any substance. A few actually are out there who really do back up their boasts with their prowess. Zerstörer is one of those bands that can honestly say that they are heavier and faster than most of the bands out there.
They are this enticing mix of harsh Thrash, menacing Black and full bore Death Metal with this Grind sort of overtones set to implode your mind and reduce the rest of your head to jell-o. They are brutally fast metallic blasts, deviously heavy and having that added venom of pure hatred that is more than just evident... and that is just the start of what makes this band. They sound like they are as mad as a wolverine after getting a electrified cattle rod right up the ass.
If you want to pick one song that is the best, good luck...there are just too many for making that sort of choice. Every last track on here seem to want to fry your insides with it’s burning leads and chainsaw heavy riffage... and make you believe in what extreme metal really sounds like. The recording needs a little tweaking, but other than that, its amazing.
In the world of Black, Death, Black and Extreme Metal in general... Zerstörer is one solitary band that stands out more than other bands that are vying for your attention. This band is getting close to what their potential is, and I, for one, am looking forward to hearing that when it happens... and I will do just that - with my horns held high in appreciation.
