The combination between Old School Death Metal and some sickos "modern" tunes of DM , sometimes will turn in very good way. Atleast the music was played by the correct person or musician, and for those obsessed by the real tunes of DM. And of corpse! we don't talk about fvcking technical stuff here, Ha!
Gustav Myrin, Pelle Ekegren, and Wolfgang Rothbauer, a past-corpse members from BLOOD MORTIZED / GRAVE / ZOMBIE INC, to mention few name of (DOD-disease!) who spread the plague beyond the creation of REEK OF MARTYR. It's just a great formation between those to created the stunning and dark-obscure atmosphere on "Heretic" EP.
The first tracks from "Heretic" EP, "Crawl Through The Devil" directly put my ears and mind gone into the ancient sound of DM. Not for the rawness taste like before, but the heavy-blasting, dirty rotten-punchy riff's and heavy-growling voices by Wolfgang Rothbauer look very differently for me, sometimes more darkest and far beyond the achievement for someone and it's also make clearly that "Heretic" probably been mixing and produced in very solid ways. That's why, the first tracks from the EP already caught me for few more second in terms of sound producing. "Heretic" EP also proved that REEK OF MARTYR are fully done their works and make a twisted-difference side from what they doing in the past with their old bands. It's a same passion towards the death like before but this times Gustav Myrin, Pelle Ekegren and Wolfgang Rothbauer put alot of aggression and make its more brutal, slicing the throat without mercy and dismembered all the heavy-tab on guitar. REEK OF MARTYR seem look strongest in terms of song-writing, tracks like "Of Aeons And Blood" coming out with a fast-slow beats combination and the mellow-solo guitar already hiking the high pitch of that EP.
To end this suffer, REEK OF MARTYR probably successful spread the ugly disease among the sick-society almost half of hour in "Heretic" EP. This 4 tracks promotional demo stand alone with his own character, and it's very good in terms of sound producing, song-decompositions and how heavy they slaughtered all the songs directly to your fvcking bones!!
Death metal !!
