From Past Aeons

Rated 3/5 (60%) (4 Votes)

Old School Death Metal to the bone. You should not read any further and just purchase Russian Death Metal act Dig Me No Grave's (that's a pretty dull band name, if you ask me) From Past Aeons disc, which they originally released independently on CD-R format with only six tracks.

From Past Aeons was reissued and released in 2016 by Russian Symbol of Domination Prod., a sub-label of Satanath Records. This time, it has an additional outro track ("Outer Gods") as well as two bonus live tracks, which kind of always make me pretty darn skeptical.

My fears weren't misplaced as these two live tracks aren't that well mixed, suffering from a pretty messy sound. But as for the original EP, From Past Aeons, it is simple, at times raw, straightforward and heavy old school Death Metal.  The early days of bands such as Death, Obituary, S.F.U. and Asphyx's demo days and debut album (titled Embrace of Death, and NOT The Rack as some may mistakenly think) are some of the sounds you may associate with From Past Aeons. They play simple but they have enough power behind their song structures to make a lasting impression on a good bunch of Death Metal maniacs, that's for sure. A song like "Rise of Madness" is basically pure Death à la Leprosy, except for the vocals.

From Past Aeons doesn't fill up the Death Metal table with any extra sweets but it's surely enough to kill your instant hunger for this type of extreme music.
