Axis Of Advance

The bio from this Canadian trio says it all: "(the goal in forming the band was) to create some of the most punishing black/death metal the world had ever seen.". Based on that description, it appears that Axis Of Advance has succeeded. This is over-the-top, completely relentless hyperspeed death metal, with vocals both in the black and death category and an absolutely inhuman drummer in J. Read -- his stuff is ridiculously exhausting just to listen to, and one can only imagine how much energy it takes to play it. Nothing remotely subtle here, and nothing really that technical, but just an aural death metal assault -- really, "punishing" is the key word here.
