Gruesome are one of the latest Death Metal brigades originating from California (USA) and exists for about two years on the scene.

Henrietta-Dead By Dawn

Artist: 
Henrietta
Release: 
Dead By Dawn
Label: 
Sliptrick Records

If yours metal thirst begs for some zombie putrid blood in the form of Dutch thrash metal, then you are reading the right review my friend! Since you started reading, you can as well finish it and find out more how Henrietta can make you feel better. The band originates from the Netherlands and yes they had the usual line-up changes and problems. It’s not quite common for young bands to change their names the first time the original line-up twists, yet Henrietta have done it, not only once – but twice in five years.

Enfeeble-Momentum of Tranquility

Artist: 
Enfeeble
Release: 
Momentum of Tranquility
Label: 
Independent

Enfeeble are pretty ‘old’ band, so to say, or better said mature one. They were formed in 2005 in Germany but didn’t go public for a long time. The reason was the tendency of finding the right course of music they want to perform, create and play. Mostly experimenting with thrash metal and modern music of any sort Enfeeble kind of made something new and entertaining. In 2014 they released the first incarnation entitled Encapsulate the Moment.

Artist: 
Comatose
Release: 
The Ultimate Revenge
Label: 
Satanath Records/Darzamadicus Records

Comatose is a band from the Philippines, the city of Cebu, created in 2004 with the tendency to play Hypocricy cover songs. Formed as a college band, they soon realized that being a cover band won’t bring you any good in near future and decided to start making and creating their own songs. The process for them has been tough and many line-up changes occurred, as in most of young metal bands. But Comatose were determined in staying metal and published their first demo Pure Evil and Blasphemy in 2004.
