Boris The Blade Warpath

Over the last couple of year Australia has exported some of the finest examples of extreme metal and to my mind it only seem to be getting better and better Melbourne's Boris The Blade are no exception with there latest slab of bone jarring extremity in the form of the new album "WARPATH".

The title track kicks off proceedings in truly ominous fashion with trade mark snarling guitars and break downs aplenty. "Backstabber" keeps this hellish beast rolling, of note vocalist Daniel Sharp has brought his "A" game in terms of delivery and sheer power while "Misery" reminds me of fellow counterparts "Thy Art Is Murder" with the stellar 2015 album "Holy Wars". Quick firing fret board action and machine gun drumming is the aim here.

"Nihilist" take you in a different direction with layered vocals and and disturbing guitar tones, a personal favourite among the carnage here. "Omens" is your straight ahead "deathcore" track with ground shattering tones to leave you shaken and scared for your life!! "Paralyzed" and "Thorns" carry the weight of the world in no uncertain terms both grinding a descent into pure hell. "Devastator" is exactly that, completely down right evil with an interesting electronic sample at the start of the track. Now from this point onwards tracks "Elixir" and album closer "Solace" unfortunately suffers from "track bleeding" where by I mean to say it sounds a bit the same, not terrible but not out of the box ground breaking.

I'll put it to you 100 percent straight, your either going to love this offering or it's in the "I'm in an extreme mood pile". A solid effort, give this one some time and room to grow and breath and your bound to find something here to feed your nasty cravings.
