Kill With Hate cover Shiny Happy People

I was in the need to hear some ridiculously br00tal music lately because I have been listening too much to the fuzzed out stonery sounds of Orange Goblin, Clutch, and many others. I have nothing against those bands, I absolutely love those bands and their groovy sounds however every metalhead needs some time to sit back and get blasted by some blast beats and guttural growls the likes of which the conservative right wing has never even imagined. Enter Hungarian band Kill With Hate. Judging a book by its cover, which is a terrible thing to do, I figured that this band would satiate by blood lust in a furious form. And to a certain extent they did!

Beginning the album Voices of Contention with a choral chant and some wicked didgeridoo work, my salivary glands are working at maximum capacity in anticipation of the heaviness to come. When track number 2, "Submersion", commenced the br00talness appeared and got my head a-bobbing from the grooves. A solid riff, while not entirely original moved the track along quite well and led to the growls my thirst for heaviness was looking for. And towards the end of the track a nice little guitar solo emerged to give the song a little bit of sonic dynamism. However, as the album goes along, it seems to be a little more of the same. Each of the songs contain a good riff, some heavy as a dinosaur turd drumming, and brimstone inducing roars.  The banging bass lines do add a little bit of depth to make the songs come alive.  I just wish that the songs would vary a little bit to make them a little more memorable. This may not be exactly what brutal death metal is all about, however this writer would like to hear a little bit more. In the coming years this may indeed be a band to watch as they bristle with talent. Looking for more to come from these hungary (haha see what I did there?!?!) young chaps in the future.
