Death & Beyond

Rated 3.75/5 (75%) (8 Votes)

El Salvador may not sound like a country that people can relate to kickass underground Metal music. Conceived by Hate hail from the main capital of El Salvador, San Salvador, are clear proof of the country's vivid and, yes, kickass underground Metal scene. As they sing on one of their songs, "Death Metal from El Salvador. This is underground".

Musically, this South American group kicks ass on just about every level, having basically all the pieces in the right place to impress a bunch of metalheads around this dying globe of ours. Both guitarists Rene "Insane" Vega and Jorge Montesino sound like seasoned veterans with their axe work, churning out mainly Bay Area-tinged Thrash fests while doing some very impressive lead work. Jorge, who also handles the vocals, sounds like David Vincent but with a more snarling Black Metal rasp in his voice, fitting the band's music very well. The band's songs are also quite varied, with even keyboards enter every now and then to bring in more depth and beauty to the songs. Some more melodic material can be found on "Below the Pale Sky," which breaks from the thunderous Death/Thrash Metal beating that most of the other songs deliver.

Nonetheless, Death & Beyond should be put on your shopping list if a well crafted and skillfully played mix of Death and Thrash Metal gets your inner fluids out of balance and boiling.
