Brutal Death Metal

Misery Index – Live in Munich (Season of Mist)

Extreme Brutality over Germany!
Release Date: 
14 Feb 2013 - 11:30pm

I usually dislike live albums, but this is an exception and a surprise at same time.

Execration – The Acceptance of Zero Tolerance (Comatose Music)

Brutal attack from Colorado Springs.


There are at least three “Execrations” from USA, this one is from Colorado Springs/ CO, and they practice the vilest form of death metal

Cryptopsy – Cryptopsy (Own Label)

No deathcore, no clean singing, no bullshit. Believe, Cryptopsy are back with their best album to date!
Release Date: 
11 Sep 2012 - 12:30pm
