Ahvawe – Drink Till You … (2014)

Band: Ahvawe Release: Drink Till You Fucking Puke Your Liver Out (Demo) Genre: Black/Speed Metal Country: Mexico Year: 2014 Label: Self-Released Download (Bandcamp) Facebook Review Fueled by the likes of Bulldozer, Hellhammer and Venom comes Ahvawe, Mexico’s answer to early 80s black/speed metal.  Raw and gritty are two words that surely define Ahvawe‘s music; mindless thrashing fun is exactly what these dudes live for, and they show it off pretty damn well on their debut demo.  All metalheads sometimes feel the need to take a break from the vast technical caliber that so many bands offer and settle for some senseless thrashing fun, and Ahvawe sure as hell delivers in that respect.

Zadkiel – Hell’s Bomber (1986)

Band: Zadkiel Release: Hell’s Bomber (EP) Genre: Black/Speed Metal Country: Japan Year: 1986 Label: Hold Up Buy from: eBay Review Have you ever wondered what would happen if black metal and speed metal legends Venom and Motorhead ever mated?  Well, simply put, they surely would’ve given birth to this monstrosity (in a good way), also known as Zadkiel, hailing from the faraway nation of Japan.  Simply put, Zadkiel play a style very similar to Sabbat, one of the most important bands to ever come out of Japan.  From what you can possibly guess, Zadkiel‘s music is inevitably dark and can get quite...
