The Hell is a Serbian quintet, born in Belgrade in 2013. Ever since, they have been working on this album, mainly influenced by... well, all of them. Morbid Angel, Cannibal Corpse, Death, Obituary, At The Gates, Vader, Sepultura, Napalm Death... You name them, they know them and they have been listening very carefully. So it's no surprise that this debut is full of punishing and uncompromised death metal and constantly reminds you of the great ones in the genre.
However, I must say that Tamerlan is probably one of the best grunters I've heard recently. Far away from all the post-stuff which is popular these days, these are traditional grunts, deep, guttural and relentless. Also the music retains a safe distance from the deathcore scene. That way, The Hell certainly deserves a place among the earlier mentioned bands. Their loyalty to old fashioned death metal is something fans must cherish, highlighting many times on this album, especially in 'Bred For Slavery' and 'Spiritual Necrosis'.
There's little else to say about this album, so in a few lines I will end this review with the very same word as The Hell finishes this tremendous effort. If you're a death metal fan, yearning for the good old days of the genre, you should already be a massive fan of these Serbians and you should have already gotten your hands on this album. The Hell is coming to take over the death metal world, 'Amen'.
