Abated Mass of Flesh slam us hard with this aptly named EP. Brutal Death, AMOF’s second EP release, features crushingly heavy grooves, indecipherable vocals, and is mixed with an arsenal of drums. The production and mastering are solid; this is heavy, and it sounds good. I really love groovy (read: slam without the breakdowns) death metal, and it didn’t take much effort for this to work its way into my heart. It was on repeat and played for a couple of hours, which is surprising, as this release only clocks in at around 18 minutes. Sadly, we’re still waiting on the full-length version of this release, but if MP3s don’t scare you, they are available now.

Contributing writer Andrew Voigt talks to vocalist Austin Visser about the band's new album, the reality of their music, and how they've been able to embrace their creative freedom.Full Feature More from The Undertaking
