Every now and then you get a band from South America that astonishes you. Verthebral are doing the same with their brand of unrelenting, vicious death metal. What's more, it's not just brainless chaotic fury but it's something that's properly though out and executed brilliantly. Check out the first song that's streaming here on Bandcamp and YouTube.
South American band Verthebral are a reminder of the potency of death metal coming from their continent. From Paraguay, the band is doing everything right - from the traditionally-rooted riffing to the relentless percussive hammering with savage, barked out vocals to top it all off, everything is meticulously put together and executed to perfection. It's reminiscent of the Brazilian death metal wave that emerged around the turn of the century and Verthebral take it a notch higher by imbibing the best qualities, especially the barbaric take on the style, and tempering it with unpredictable tempo changes and whip-lashing breakdowns. It's a sheer thrill for any seasoned death metal fan to bear witness to the raging onslaught and the best part is that the music still lingers in your mind after it's all over, which proves that it's not just mindless brutality but a well thought out extreme album that must not be taken lightly.
