7 H.Target – 0.00 Apocalypse (Review)

7 H.TargetThis is the third album from Russia’s 7 H.Target. They play Brutal Death Metal.

This is modern Sci-fi themed Death Metal with enough brutality to leave you bruised.

The band are rhythmically aggressive and technically devastating. Their fury is unrestrained and each track sounds like it’s going straight for the jugular to rip it out and replace it with complex cybernetics.

There’s a healthy Slam component to their sound only this is not quite as blatant as some purveyors of the style. It’s a strong influence nonetheless but it’s tempered by the sheer brutality of the band. It’s not just heavy groove; there’s some serious blasting and grinding going on here.

Add to this the rather more interesting and inventive touches to the music; odd moments of technicality and Industrial Sci-fi influences and this is more than just “another Slam band”.

The sound is heavy, thick and serpentine like a robotic snake, twisting and coiling around its victims before tightening slowly. 0.00 Apocalypse┬ásounds immense and it’s the perfect aural vehicle for their inventive brand of mayhem.

The vocals are guttural nightmares drawn from the bowels of a festering pit of dying servitors. Enough said.

This is a truly extreme work of Brutal Death Metal cyber-art and the songs on this album need to be heard, preferably at ear-bleeding noise levels.

If you’ve a taste for cutting edge brutality then this is a must.
