CD Review: New Heavy Metal Music From Repulsive Dissection, All Hell, Bevar Sea and Insanity

As summer winds down, new heavy metal music from Repulsive Dissection, All Hell, Bevar Sea and Insanity are guaranteed to keep the heat on this autumn. First up is the U.K. death metal band Repulsive Dissection with their sophomore release "Church Of The Five Precious Wounds." The new eight-track release begins with the unbelievable speed of "Baptism (Nurtured In The Void)." As you try and realize what just happened, they come at you harder and faster with "Confirmation (The Future Of An Illusion)." The eeriness of the preacher at the beginning of "Ordination (Monument Of The Deceived)" is a momentary break, before the onslaught of "Missionary (Proselytic Strangulation)" and the evilness of the album closer "Apostasy (Ideological Dysphagia)." To find out more about the latest release from Repulsive Dissection, please visit their Facebook page at facebook.com/repulsivedissectionband.
 
Next up is the death metal band All Hell from North Carolina with their second album "The Red Sect." They hit the ground running with the fast pace of "Crossroads" and the growling vocals of "Mass Possession." The energy remains high with the thrash metal appeal of "Blood For The Baron" and "In My Command." The new ten-song album closes with adrenaline pumping, bashing rhythm of "Funeral Feast" and the more mainstream metal groove of "The Red Sect."

Coming at the end of October is the new album from Indian doom metal band Bevar Sea entitled "Invoke The Bizarre." The band have matured musically since their 2010 debut album as their sound still has that raw, garage metal feel. The new six song release has a more progressive tone as the vocals are heavy to reflect the changing tempos, as in the opener "Bearded And Bizarre." The slow, dragging rhythm of "Sleeping Pool" pushes the song past the ten-minute mark, while they save their best for last with the intriguing, classic metal sound of the nearly twelve minute adventure of "Grand Alignment."

Finally we get the the mid-November release from Insanity titled "Visions Of Apocalypse." It is the band's first album since their 1994 debut and right from the opening blast of "Sacrefixion," Insanity returns to remind us of how it's done. Their new nine-song release continues with the energy of "When" and the heavy metal guitar riffs of "Sociopath." The growling vocals of "Disillusioned" is a great balance to the strength of the musicianship within the band. The album finishes with the classic hardcore thrash metal appeal of "Blind" and the eight-minute stunning work of the "Visions Of Apocalypse."
