Label: Testicular Records

2-Cyber demystification
3-Perpetual Agony
4-Beyond Perception
5-Continuity In Chaos
6-Cerebral Atrophy (Bonus track)

Paranoid Fantasy Strong old school delirium death metal since 1998 from Algeria .Paranoid Fantasy was created in 1998 by the former member Schyzophagus (Roger Miller), the name was changed several times Nightmare Delirium (2003-2006), Cruality of Madness (1998,2001.) Paranoid Fantasy (2008 until now).
In 2005-2006 first demo 4 songs was record in release.2008 was marked by the first collaboration with Absynth,immediately after demo track from older stuff was record with the means at hand.
in 2009 the band come back among the living after one year of silent with new stuff and new vision of what could be the new direction of the band with huge Influence and experience, to create music and to destroy the hopes of human kind.
Paranoid Fantasy tries to gravity in a world of madness and cruelty without a favorable outcome for the salvation of the human mind with contradictory mix of old school black metal doom death metal followed with dark and cold atmosphere things who give the blackned part of Paranoid Fantasy and maybe there are things who can remember you the italian death métalstyle ! (I’m not sure maybe some elements)
in 2016 after some changes (line up and musical orientation) Paranoid Fantasyis back. with a fresh new blood Slave Blaster(Lelahell , In Hell) on drums the band will deliver a solid Death metal without compromise

Everlasting Madness  Opening with thedark atmospherique words spoken by Redouane of Lelahell in the intro track , saying the brifing of himself and something about the band
The second track Cyber Demystification awesomebit melody intro and riffing with mighty  unsttopabledruming ,drums with of course the machine gun double bass drumming and after a few second guitar speed turn to heavily doom-laden ,not very doomed because the blackned side gives vary greatly tempos and shows that technicality who brief  doom rhythms at high speed (sometimes tempos turn little bit low) Luckily the music is equally  and fit as well done as the vocals and wthout forget ing the short guitar solo who can remember you incantation or immolation style (maybe some elements)
the next track Perpetual Agony starts with a solid brutality sound adding to the saturated  growing but this last one turn to mixed vocal between growl and brutal screaming when the tempo change and the song impress with their melody as well as their dynamics and atmosphere without forgetting the old school flavor you smell it more than the first song Same thing for Beyond Perception just tempo is little slowly and heavier than the  previous tracks without forgetting the collaboration of Redouane (Lelahell) as  guest vocal in the outro, Continuity In Chaos death with touches of black metal with a very dark approach that will make you immerse in a dark atmosphere, with fast rhythms, strong melodies and absorption that work very well with the guttural and screming vocals of Schyzophagus
and the last on Cerebral Atrophy is an old title of paranoid fantasy 1st recorded on the demo of 2005-2006 this version it is of 2017 re-recorded that is why it is a bonus track , and it's the most blackned doomed track of this EP the track with the old school flavor who smell more and more Cerebral Atrophy is pretty awesome for fan of sick old death metal style like it was done in the early 90s and late 80sI agree that they can't really be as mind blowing as the bands of that era, but it's really heartening to see death metal still has some hopes. And among the vast legions of Suffocation clones and countless numbers of stupid metalcore and deathcore bands, some bands still have balls.
Everlasting Madness is for sure a must in the shitty genre and all Death Metallers should to get this evil fucking EP, Dark and Cold Amazing Fucking Piece of Brutal Sadistic Fucking Devilry ……. In any case , you should have or try to listen  Everlasting Madness and put it in your collection

12.Infecting the Crypts (Suffocation cover)

Another substandard album in 2017 after listening and viewing Suffocation - Of The Dark Light  and Immolation  Atonement ………………                                       Decrepit Birth - Axis Mundi again the same method selling just new albums
which becomes a habit or custom with an unsatisfactory content and sometimes just passable and boring if one does not mean blameworthy positive thing is the production is state of the art, the band the sound is perfect ! , I was chocked when I see in some webzines fucking stupid people says : I have no doubt about this. Decrepit Birth‘s 2017 output is very possibly the best death metal album of the year and without question it is undoubtedly my favourite release of the year !!!!!!!!!!fuck fuuuuck ! you ,are you drunk !!!!
This album consists nine tracks, and three covers! Featuring sci-fi and wrong psychedelic  artwork …..I don’t find the real Brutal Death Metal orientation only in track six  Mirror of Humanity the only track who can satisfy your ear the only track without fucking melody and modern sound who seems to djent followed with slow atmosphere, speed up of riffs progressively , Some voices can be heard in the background the rest tracks of this album ideal to throw a way ……………in brief Decrepit Birth turn in this album to Progressive, Melodic  death métal with technical touch adding new modern wrong way ……….
I think Mirror of Humanity can remind you the earliest days of the band’s career
but the sound is not completely identical.

 I don’t know how define this album exactly … In any case , I don’t think if you should have  Axis Mundi in your collection.

Label: Nuclear Blast


01. Clarity Through Deprivation
02. The Warmth Within The Dark
03. Your Last Breaths
04. Return To The Abyss
05. The Violation
06. Of The Dark Light
07. Some Things Should Be Left Alone
08. Caught Between Two Worlds
09. Epitaph Of The Credulous

It is not the best of what can do this veteran, Since the quintet got a very good sound production, they gave a step ahead in their way of playing a technical and brutal form of Death Metal. Of course, you’ll hear the dissonant parts, harmonic structures that received a strong influence from Jazz technique!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! some people says that but a Im not sure but it is not the most important, the production is state of the art, the band the sound is perfect, the négative things who make me crazy it’s and remeber me the last album of Immolation Atonement  ……and modern influences modern sound you can see that on the CD cover at first things that make you forget  the previous Suffocation stuff.nowadays many albums contains just two or three titles that can satisfy your ears in Of the Dark Light  will undoubtedly satisfy you with this two titles Some Things Should Be Left Alone and Caught Between Two Worlds , the rest is at least boring and substandard sometimes ………………….. In any case , you should have Of the Dark Light in your collection. If you want.

Immolation – Atonement (2017)

Label : Nuclear Blast


1.The Distorting Light                     
2.When the Jackals Come                        
3.Fostering the Divide                    
4.Rise the Heretics  
5.Thrown to the Fire                        
6.Destructive Currents        
9.Above All                
10.The Power of Gods                    
11.Epiphany 04:22   
12.Immolation (Rerecorded)     
After the leaving of, Bill Taylor's last year, after nearly fifteen and passed with Immolation and could change the deal. But the hard stone of Immolation remains primarily composed by Duke Ross Dolan (vocals, bass) and Robert Vigna (guitar), who founded the band in 1988 and guardians of the identity of the formation.
It is not surprising that on all the titles found on all the ingredients that characterize the music of Immolation, good manners, punctual changes of tempos, a massive sound and unequivocal heaviness associates the heaviness of condemn . Yet "The Distorting Light" begins with a slightly dissonant riff before the appearance of the deep growl of Dolan, definitely one of the best death metal singer………., with gutural timing oozing anger and anger, except you'll find the add of a sound and modern rhythm and prog in the outing of several titles that one often finds in the game of metalcore, deathcore and djent ...... ..and this is negative because it’s invades more and more the Death metal and We do not want it to continue a lot of death metal bands fall into the trap of standard modern metal and derive fully from pure death metal and I think it’s a threat to the real death metal………….. In any case , you should have Atonement in your collection. If you want.
