Thecodontion-Thecodontia (Album Review)

Coming straight from the demons belly of Italy, “Thecodontion” is releasing “Thecodontia” out on February 16th on “Gravplass Propaganda Records” via Bandcamp, SoundCloud and cassette. Now the first thing I found really cool about these guys is that their lyrical content is about Fossils, Dinosaurs and Geologic Periods, and they even have coined a sub-genre called “Prehistoric Metal of War” and I thought that was very cool and different for their genre, because usually when you listen to Death/Black Metal, it’s usual lyrical theme is Satan, death and destruction. Now I must warn you these guys are just a two-piece band consisting of drums, bass and vocals, but I must say they have a very big sound and it’s very full.

Their music to me is just normal Death/Black Metal but they do it in such a original way it almost distracts you from the fact that it’s fast drums and growls, so that’s very cool,

Make sure you guys preorder their new album coming out February 16th! And make sure you support the monstrosity that is….Thecodontion!

Mare Cognitum-The Sea which has become known (Album Review)

Let me just start off by saying this album will take other worlds by their monolithic riff and blistering drum beats. The album starts off with “Internal Deliquescence” by this very slow and atmospheric vibe they create, it will absolutely give you chills and they definitely achieve this feeling throughout the whole record. Some more notable parts on the whole album is their thrash-tastic song “Vehement Coalescence”, the riffs and technical playing is truly incredible. I think the only downside is the vocalist, not that he isn’t a bad vocalist I just think the music itself is so majestic and beautiful he almost ruins the songs by putting vocals over it. But other than that this album absolutely slays, it’s everything you want in a typical atmospheric black metal record and then some, plus weird creepy noises in there just to mix it up a bit. You can purchase the album on January 19th, so make sure you go out and support this great black metal band.

I’m giving this album a 9/10 here on Mammoth Tongue Reviews.
