Scythe: Subterranean Steel

Former Usurper guitarist/vocalist Rick Scythe is back with the second release from his band Scythe, this one titled Subterranean Steel. Beware the Scythe was a potent debut for sure, but Rick, bassist/vocalist Dan Geist, and drummer Joey Contreras have really knocked it out of the park on this one. Part death metal, part thrash, and part speed metal, Subterranean Steel features some of the most ferocious, in your face guitar riffing you'll likely hear this year. I mean, this is face melting, bone shredding stuff, Scythe's molten riffage just tearing apart the landscape on each and every track here. "Leather Aggressor" and "Monarch" get the ball rolling, and it never lets up from there, with the title track slowing things down a bit but no less crushing, and "The Grunting Dead" plowing ahead with blackened thrash intensity, driven by Scythe's lethal growls & riffs and Contreras' pounding drum blasting. "Nights of Terror" conjures up some classic metal arrangements but punctuated by violent death metal screams, and "The Bray Beast" is overloaded with punishing riffs and sizzling guitar solos.

If you crave glorious, crushingly heavy thrashy death metal with 'to die for' riffs, then you owe it to yourself to run out and get a copy of Subterranean Steel as quickly as possible. This is some massive stuff folks, and will provide endless hours of headbanging fun.
