Just in case you are wondering what country that green flag represents…it is Saudi Arabia. Yes. You can rub your eyes for a bit and re-read this again. This is death metal from Saudi Arabia. So immediately, this caught my eye and I wanted to check it out. Deathless Anguish is a one man band, who plays the instruments and mixes it on his computer using PC software. So sound quality and production wise, this is not really crystal clear. Kind of raw – but in the negative sense of the word. There is almost no bass in here at all.
The music though is surprisingly good. Very thrashy riffs sometimes reminding of early Slayer as well as some Sepultura. I'd throw in a Cryptopsy comparison as well because the vocals are quite reminding of "None So Vile" era Cryptopsy – which means, COMPLETELY undecipherable as to what on Earth he is saying. I am told the lyrics are anti-atheistic and about anti-Americanism, anti-government oppression stuff. But I have no idea what is being said in regard to those topics.
Overall, an impressive demo from a place where extreme music is non-existent and banned. Apparently, they have underground metal shows over there with an audience of 10-15 people! There are no "original" copies of this demo, only CDRs. At the time of this review's writing, the demo is available for download from the band's website. Check it out.
