Relase Date Jan 27 2017 – Unique Leader (US)
Formed in 1991 Beheaded is one of the first death metal bands from Malta Italy to record and release their brand of extreme metal (in a predominantly Catholic country) they encountered confrontation and negativity in their early years. Undeterred the band was embraced by a growing underground metal scene and their first demo tape “Souldead” (1995) was widely circulated among tape trading circles of that era. Since then they have released multiple albums and have toured many European countries and American states opening shows for many well-known metal acts and performing at high profile music festivals.
2017 will see the release of their fifth full-length album aptly titled “Beast Incarnate” which best describes this death metal onslaught. Eight tracks of blistering high-energy metal music frenzy - rain down like an exploding volcano, scorching everything in its path. Insane blast beats from “Brutal Dave” Billa on the drum kit is the backbone throughout with Frank Calleja’s booming death metal vocals create an intense experience on each number. The twin guitar attack of Omar Grech and Robert Agius creates a riveting sound - shredding as one, blending fast technical riffs and thick doom laden passages that groove seamlessly with David Cachia’s raw bass undertones.
Every song is a brutal assault of the senses weaving through intricate tempo changes full of precision and rage. Some of my favorite tracks on “Beast Incarnate” are “Punishment Of The Grave”, “The Black Death”,“Crossing the House Of Knives” and of course the title track. If you’re a fan of intense brutal death metal then I’m positive that you’ll find this brand-new offering from Beheaded to your liking.
