Ruins of Humanity

Rated 3.71/5 (74.29%) (7 Votes)

Finland has had a strong second wave of Death Metal going on for quite some time now, with an apparently limitless supply of strong bands that both understand and revere the classic '90s scene. Azatoth are among them, a very young band of very young people (18 at the oldest) who already have a couple of demos out despite only forming in 2020. The first and last thing I can say about this is that these kids clearly love the demo days of bands like Funebre, Cartilage, Purtenance, and Demigod, because this demo is just five tracks of raw, primitive Finnish Death Metal that doesn’t aspire to be anything more than an open love letter to the good old days that they never actually got a chance to be a part of. I’d say more, but when you follow a formula as well established, the most you can say is whether or not a band follows it well, and Azatoth are definitely one of the bands who really gets it. Recommended.
