Abyss Records Double Shot Of Bludgeoning Decimation: Stream Septekh’s “Cursing The Skies” and Dead Awaken’s “Kingdom Of Damnation” Right Now!


Two of everything is better. Two more beers, two breasts [imagine a single breasted female?! Sucky.], double whisky and coke, and now two new songs from the exquisite Abyss Records roster.

With that situation all cleared up, Axis Of Metal has teamed up with our good pals over at Abyss to debut some vicious metal from these purveyors of madness.

First up on the docket is – Septekh. These Swedes have been spewing their dirty brand of thrash infused death metal since 2009. In 2009, they self released their first demo, quickly followed up by an EP in the same year, “Not Quite What I Had In Mind”. Then a bit of fast forwarding to 2012, where these Swedish miscreants released another EP, “The Seth Avalanche”, and now in 2013 another EP “Apollonian Eyes”. My god, do they like to release EPs, but we won’t fault them for that, because the quality of this ugly music is so high. If you’re not familiar with the band, get ready for alcohol infused death thrashing. Septekh are masters of taking these two beloved genres and creating an unholy union of madness and creating total and utter devastation to all souls who dare lend an ear.

Getting sick of reading my words? Yea? Well, I’ll spare you further literary explanation, and direct you to the player just below these words to experience the same pain that I did. You’ve been warned!

Also be sure to catch up with these Swedish fiends on Facebook HERE.

Has your recovery time elapsed? You ready to forge ahead? Good. With that said we can now switch gears and enter Dead Awaken’s hemisphere of death metal bludgeoning. This is no bullshit, straight forward death metal destruction. There is deviating from the tried and true formula of death metal here. This is for the fiends. “Kingdom Of Damnation” is a straight forward, mid-paced frenzy of evil deliciousness. It truly doesn’t get any better than this. If you’re anything like me, then you can appreciate a band that can stick to the genres laurels and create something that compels attention even if it’s been done many times before. Sometimes simplicity is just so satisfying, and in Dead Awaken’s case, this statement holds true.

Now that, that’s out of the way, I’ll spare you the biographical nonsense and implore you to once again hit the play button on the player you see below to enter this nirvana of death metal majesty. ONWARD FIENDS!

About the Author

I started this project back in September of 2011. It was born out of an obsession for all things riffy and heavy. I figured, I wanted my opinions heard, so why not create my own soapbox? Thus, Axis Of Metal was born.

My beginnings as a metalhead, sprouted from a love of classic rock, and punk. Well, being 11 years old, Offspring and Blink-182 were as hardcore as they came, right? Anyway, after enjoying stuff like Zeppelin, Rush, Cream and pop-punk, I was introduced to grunge music, and that really paved the way for my insatiable taste for music. From there, I became totally obsessed with music. My love of punk evolved into bands like Black Flag, The Casualties (early), and eventually becoming enamored with discharge. As my need for speed and ugliness intensified, I was introduced to Slayer in high-school, and thus ... the metalhead was born.

Cool story, eh? I thought so too. Anyway, Axis Of Metal is created for you, yea you. Without all the support we've received over the past few years this zine would be nothing. So, enjoy, and stick around, will ya?
