3 min read

Well, it looks that is Friday. The first Friday of November. Till now this year has been a very good one related to releases. Yes it’s true. But we still have two more months till the end of the year. Will see what labels/bands bring to us. Hope for much more music.

So, let me start with my recos for all of you, lovers of the underground.

Band: Feed Them Death

Style: Death Metal / Grindcore
Time playing: 16:38

Time playing: 01:11:26
Cover/Music: 8/10 – 8/10
Details: Well, this is not a new release but a compilation from the two EP already released by the band. This band plays good Thrash Metal. It did remind me a bit Flotsam and Jetsam but with more groove and “weight” and a bit of Slayer.

From my private collection…
