Death metal is always appreciated and preferred for metal heads there is no doubt about it . In the matter of metal music today the underground is full of newcomers who bring enthusiasm and fresh ideas but you have to admit that which bands are putting furious,evil,blasphemous music since late 80’s/early 90’s era their musical style,composition,lyrics structures everything’s are full of reverence . Nowadays a lots of modern death metal is shiny, flashy, and in addition, purely cutthroat and fully influenced by late 80’s/early 90’s musical era and borrow the vibe which is really appreciable. Death metal does not stagnate in a constant form. Some challengers exist, such as Sadistik Forest, their new album is brilliant addition to the death metal roster.

They have injected technical riffs works, dark and dirge vibes into aural bashing,furious,fast death metal with strangulated riffs work simultaneously that burns with oppressive fervor. I applaud this new addition and cite them.
Their heavy,ultra-fast sounds and disparate styles all combined in one bold, enlightened display of unbound creativity. Despite the often fast ,furious,cacophonous, heavy and barbarous form of death metal assaults  laced with a lots of segments of mid-paced,fast tempo too where Sadistik Forest combines intricate,tricky riffs work,vicious,dirge vibes with cavernous drum thrashes,aforementioned all  aspects  enriched this album that is very powerful,strong and excellent all at the same time along with a good  balance  of death metal music, melody and brutality with strangulated ,filthy,thick,groovy riffs work and those effective rasps,relentless growls simultaneously.

I personally appreciate their new albums songs framing style.well, this albums tracks are slow,groovy,dense,traditional,old school death metal music with some grandoise growls and a wall of spectacular drums with aggression,deliberate cadence . From this new album we get ultra-fast, oppressive death metal. This album is filled with a slew of twisted , traversed ,chugging, groovy,intricate, blitzkrieg,menacing ,complex riffs line ups. As well bass line up is shifting, chaotic,distorted,rumbled and punchy . Drumming,percussion line up is pummeling,dodgy,punishing,frantic,blast beating  and rabidly insane . There are a slew of individual breathtaking ,subtle nuance,cadence,morbidly delicious, ominous  riffs,solo and drumming  sections which sound briefly something exotic . In each track intricate,spectacular  riffs,bass lineups matched in fantastic way. This album indulge strong songwriting and brilliant musicianship . Every instrument is clearly differentiated & represented excellently in each and every single track .Tempo changes are excellent and complicated . Vocals deep rasps, gruff growls , vigorous, crucial, immense , aggressive voice intertwined in a good manner with their utterly savage,merciless,onslaught,violent, vitriol ,uncanny deeply rooted old school death metal sound with a lots of dark,dirge  accompaniment and embedded perfectly .

Album Review :~ Gaerea - Unsettling Whispers

The obsession with anything outre is not exactly a novelty in the metal scene, but occasionally it will assume a much more complex and nuanced dimension owing to musicians who insist on addressing such topics with utmost maturity and profundity. Numerous bands have created albums based around their own ideas that take insight from creative writing, but few bands will dedicate the entire span of an album to relevant interpretation of the belief With the emergence and escalation of the novel and notorious tendency. While some excellent ,unique band attempting to sell their flavor of the month band to potential listeners, there are some that simply exist outside of pre-existing molds and take a few years to realize their full potential and thusly grasp the imaginations of many who are fortunate enough to witness their evolve talent. Shadowy, worshipping Portuguese quintet Gaerea's debut offering is cut above the rest. Spawning from the depths of Occultism, Chaos, Knowledge, Esoteric Literature is the newest record from orthodox, nihilistic black metal Gaerea- Unsettling Whispers. Gaerea this Oporto, Portuguese group married the ritualistic fury of esoteric,occult black metal with a creeping dose of mystical,ominous,sinister madness. The atmosphere and tightly plotted albums were based on mystical, occult, incantation while still employing their own take on black metal.
On this year Oporto based Portuguese black metallers Gaerea Unveiled their debut full length opus on this year entitled “Unsettling Whispers” via Transcending Obscurity Records with 41:45 min assault along with hellish,skin-ripping artistry. This new album consist with 7 tracks . Gaerea was formed in 2016. They have developed into an independent mystical, occult and grand entity with their release Self Titled EP in 2016. Now I am straight going to the point about this new album . 

When at first checked out their manifestation I was overwhelmed and infused by the track because of authentic sound ,ferocious,mature and from then I was clinched  that I have to check this whole material for sure and this would be savage beast. Gaerea delivers distinctly experimental, atmospherically evil,vivid,horrifying form of black metal. They Playing the type of scathing, otherworldly black metal. This bands each and every musician did fantastic job on this album in radiant way and It’s really great when your high hopes are not misplaced. Gaerea manage to strike the right balance between raw, atavistic aggression and a more sophisticated, occult approach.This whole album reflects the grand diversity of sound brought together on this album . Gaerea create a constantly shapeshifting maelstrom of crushing chaos and disorder. A natural synthesis of dissonant sounds and disparate styles all combined in one bold, enlightened display of unbound creativity Despite the often crushing,fast ,furious,cacophonous black metal assaults with a lots of segments of slower tempo too where Gaerea combines a atmospheric, mysterious, introspective passages with cavernous drum thrashes, whirlwind guitars and those effective rasps.

well,their latest incantations opening track is “Lord of Blessed Murder” .This track starts with atmospheric slow build and eerie chanting vocal followed by an onslaught of tremulous ,dark eerie riffs and a wall of sober,slow drums and then the song returns to the sonic assailment and the musical style transformed into a whirlwind of guitar noise laced with aggression,deliberate cadence and massive,fast paced black metal. The layered tapestry of slightly trebly and heavily laden with reverb, duo-tonal whirlwind of guitar noise supporting the likewise crooning, almost moaning deeply in the throat, high-pitched , vocals drown a bit in the almost unhuman-like furiously fast though muffled drumming with ripping and snorting bass, although this evolves to a more dynamic sound on the rest of the album. Their whole composition and musical style is impeccable also borrow great atmosphere with sour ,dissonant riffs work . All instruments are dynamic, clearly discerned, yet none stand out amidst the cacophony and indeed they have far surpassed it. 
This new albums whole compositions are extremely filthy and unsettling piece of sinister,grim euphoria and unearthly ambiance . “Unsettling Whispers”  commences chronologically invigorating and destructive. Their distinct entity infused me by a lot . Their musical style have a quite soft and smooth edge which adds to the more atmospheric,unique kind of black metal but at the same time the vocals and other parts of the riffing is straight forward brutal,ferocious simultaneously . Honestly, after a multiple listen this album just blew me away with their ethereal abyss,multi-dimensional,the multi-layered,ominous musical style . Gaerea perversely brims with an illuminating light, devouring the cosmic light of life and scurrying through the sort of black metal whose radiance is so obsidian as to consume energy as austerely as it expends it. Each musicians have exudes tremendous,cohesive effort on this album with excellent diligence and nailed it . In this moment which is eternal yet transitory, a new and pure energy grows within the womb of chaos, and which ignites the source of a new aeon, a flame needless of air to exist. Gaerea really does the trick for the atmosphere is the overall murky,mysterious, Juxtapositions of darkness and light, misty sound that comes from the music. A new true god that breeds its new self, purified and sanctified in chaos without an end nor a beginning. I highly cite and embrace this album . 

This album is filled with a slew of cadence, apocalyptic,pummeling, ominous,hellish, powerful riffs work . As well bass line up is whopping,intense,strong ,rumbling, slithering . Drumming,percussion line up is bleak, frantic,solid,clattering and powerful . The guitars are solely focused on creating a grandiose atmosphere, but predominantly rely on walls of sound and swerving rhythms.In each track morbidly delicious,macabre,soaring,dark eerie,ghastly riffs,bass lineups matched in well manner .This whole albums sound deliver a dissonant,grim feeling,sinister,melancholic,gruesome black metal with raw emotion and pure energy . This album indulge strong songwriting and brilliant musicianship .Vocals decently large voice that does well for Gaerea. Especially his menacing and hoarse voice are excellent . Vocals howling scream,immense,deep rasps voice emerged on this album in a well manner adds a thick sound and intertwined perfectly with their utterly spellbinding,obtuse,bizarrely arrogant, mysterious,fully blistering black metal,distant musical style with a lots of melodic,atmospheric accompaniment and embedded perfectly . Their sound,musicianship is absolute prime, with every song unleashing a seething torrent of scalding dissonance and insidious melody, scorching distortion, and barbaric, blasphemous invective, all of which combine to produce an overarching atmosphere of creeping, crippling dread. "Unsettling Whispers" is multi-dimensional and multi-generational black metal at its pinnacle of wonder.Overall you will get sinister,gloomy,desolate,mysterious ambient from this whole album.
Each song have an energy ,fluency and draw a savage landscape .Stand out tracks are all of them .Every song, every hellish, skin-stripping riff and vile vocal incantation, is delivered with the righteous fury and unwavering conviction of the true believer. Vision of the album cover is Pretty neat,solid,atrocious,grisly, macabre, gorgeously hideous. Overall “Unsettling Whispers” whole album is Spectacular,engrossing ,significant and goes all the way through with a relentless rage from the beginning. Each track vehemently coils its tendrils about you and very quickly its immersion becomes breathtaking under its suffocating weight. Gaerea is surely the apotheosis of everything. The sound has a depth to it, that with brief distortion. Gaerea is a elite black metal sophistication in their music without sacrificing the feral, ugly core of the style. Gaerea prove less of a whisper and more of a defiant roar from one’s loathing void.This album sounds so authentic and a truly remarkable sonic journey from beginning to end . Gaerea is a deep and winding journey throughout the mysterious and stifling occult. Indeed this album is such an true gem of this year . The production is absolutely impeccable,capable of handling both the massive atmospheric and gargantuan heft.Outstanding another one release of this year so far .“Unsettling Whispers” is shattering culmination in black metal evolution. Gaerea can effectively capture a pristine essence of bloodthirsty transcendent abandon, disenchanted delirium, or perhaps even a very inhuman strain of mystical experience. The Portuguese bruisers still possess all the necessary skills and hard-won experience to put younger,newcomer challengers in their place.With " Unsettling Whispers", Gaerea writes another chapter in their book of successive masterpieces. This is astral projection through a viscous dense black cosmic ocean. If you looking for something different, epic this album will take you on a sophisticated and weighty black metal journey into another universe where music has the power to transcend the spoken word.

An Interview with Motör Militia

Motör Militia are reputed to be the first ever thrash metal band in the Persian Gulf/Middle East area to record and release a full length album of original material. They are also reported to be the second ever local metal band in Bahrain over the last 20 or so years to record and release a full length album of original material on an independent label. This year the band released their new album, signed promo deal with GlobMetal Promotions, and released new video so our magazine talked with John Baker and Abdulla Muijrers about the band, the album and future plans.

Good mourning guys. Welcome to Metalhead Spotted Magazine. Lets start with something simple - what do you have for breakfast?
John Baker: Coffee coffee coffee.

Going back to 2001, how did Motör Militia originally start?
Abdulla Muijrers: The band started in high school in 2001. I began to jam with a couple of friends and as the chemistry grew so did our ambitions. We have had a lot of lineup changes over the years. The band is now the best it has ever been.

When was Motör’s first gig and who did you share the stage with?
Abdulla Muijrers: Wow that was probably a school talent show in 2002 LOL! This line up’s first show was a gig we had in early March this year. We’ve played many shows at home and a handful abroad over the years and we are working hard to take that track record forward.

As the new album, “World in Flames” was released 2 months ago. How can you describe the album and what does make it different from all the others you've made before
John Baker: For me it is like having the best orientation into the region. With a story line such as this for the whole album and in some very small sections having to learn some arabic words has made me very happy. I feel the chemistry of the band and the music is exactly fitting for the style and energy I have always loved most.

What about the people who download your albums on the Internet? Do you think is it good or bad?
John Baker: Downloading off the internet is always challenging to stop in a digital world. No doubt someone will buy the hard copy, love it and want to share it tot he world. Don’t worry I wanted to with this kick arse album ha ha ha ha. However recording, mastering, artwork, invested time really does cost a lot of money, and thats the side people dont understand. So bands really try to limit this as much as possible. Our band been no different.

What your fans should expect from the band in the second part of 2018?
John Baker: We are currently discussing some very exciting plans for new video releases, definitely some new material coming up, working hard to expose our music across some countries and hopefully look at some tour plans for late 2018/ early 2019.

And wrapping up the interview, any messages to your fans?
John Baker: Keep an eye on Motör Militia as we plan to set the world in flames with our aggressive style Thrash Metal.
