Karonte / Bloody Brotherhood – Alliance For Death Domination
Label : Dead Sheep Productions | Archive under death metal / grindcore

Release type: Split cd

Sicktus : ‘Alliance For Death Domination’ is a split (mini) CD by the Spanish bands Karonte and Bloody Brotherhood. The veterans of Karonte offer us three tracks, in which they clearly show where they get their inspiration: loads of Gorefest, with a lot of Tampa Bay death added to that. Decent, neatly sawing, crunchy death with a neat little solo here and there. It just does not get really exciting or catchy. The two tracks Bloody Brotherhood serve us up kick off a bit faster. ‘In Tyrant’s Land’ reminds me of Monstrosity, Cannibal Corpse and Malevolent Creation. The closing ‘Thousand Years Of Lies’ starts of in a more threatening way, is more varied and has some more exciting riffing, melodies and leads throughout, with a neat pinch of energetic madness thrown in. Not bad at all, but both bands did not manage to leave a truly lasting impression.
