Reviews: Hellripper, Extremity, XAVLEGBMAOFFFASSSSITIMIWOAMNDUTROABCWAPWAEIIPPOHFFFX








Extremity – Extremely Fucking Dead (20 Buck Spin)
Oakland, California’s Extremity, exhume the 90’s sounds of Incantation and Bolt Thrower on their debut disc/cassette/music file, Extremely Fucking Dead. Marissa Martinez (Cretin) and Shelby Lermo (Vastum) lend dual guttural vocals to this crushing set of riffs and percussive attacks (Aesop Decker). It’s all weighted down by Erika Osterhout’s (Vhol) incredible bass tone and their penchant for an occasional groove. 



XAVLEGBMAOFFFASSSSITIMIWOAMNDUTROABCWAPWAEIIPPOHFFFX – Gore (Transcending Records)
This band from South Africa has an unbelievably long name, and completely indecipherable logo, and they run the gauntlet of guttural and pig squealed vocals as well. It’s light-speed gore-grind, but has strange rock and twangy blues sections under it all. It’s worth it for the song “Dicks out for Hambre” where they grunt like chimpanzees.






Hellripper – Coagulating Darkness (Witches Brew records)
One man band, Hellripper, conjure the 70’s and 80’s sounds of Motorhead, Metallica and Venom; although I wouldn’t be so quick to lump them in the NWOBHM group. They have wild solos, thrashy tempos and screeching vocals much like the bands in that generalization, however they reek of Hellhammer. Picture Tom G. and Co. hopping in a time machine and travelling to today and writing an album after listening to newer thrash.
