OFFAL (Brazil) - ZOMBIE COOKBOOK (Brazil) - Split 7" EP (Death Metal/Gore Metal, February 25th, 2015, Black Hole Productions)
ZOMBIE COOKBOOK are great a revelation, even for me. Inspired apparently by early DEATH, AUTOPSY and NECROPHAGIA, this is old school death metal with a twisted blessing. This band bypasses the gory territory and yet carries the fetid aura in the sound. The Brazilian dank flavour is intact. The songs are superbly structured, carrying blinding solos and using multiple vocal patterns to keep it intense. Again, there's this thrashy edge that makes the difference and it's not undecipherable brutal/guttural death metal that's taking place here. ZOMBIE COOKBOOK hold a ton of promise and are bound to be added on your mental list of favourite death metal band discoveries.
These two bands are carrying the flame of underground death metal/goregrind and are doing everything right in my book. Both are from Brazil, having members of LYMPHATIC PHLEGM, NEURO-VISCERAL EXHUMATION (OFFAL) and FLESH GRINDER (ZOMBIE COOKBOOK).
