Debris Wrought From Winter wastes no time. We are immediately assaulted by a nasty groove chock full of the deathiest death metal riffing. Give it a listen for yourself, then jump below the player for my full review.
Hopefully I’m not sharing any spoilers here. I’m sure many of you have seen Rocky IV. Bear with me here, as it’s been awhile for me, so some of the details may not be exactly correct. In the movie, if memory serves, there’s a training montage showing Rocky jogging on snowy roads, doing pull ups in a barn, doing basic push ups, etc. – a very basic, meat and potatoes workout. In the meantime, Drago is working out in a more fancy setting, complete with machinery where they can test his punching power. This debut from Hellfrost and Fire feels something like Rocky, compared to more modern sounding death metal (Drago). You remember who won the final fight, right?
While Fire, Frost, and Hell may not be too fancy, it’s definitely tough. Punishing down-tuned death metal riffs, belligerent drumming, and David Ingram’s trademark bellow. Joining Ingram is Rick “Dennis” DeMusis on guitar and bass, and Travis Ruvo on drums. Their attack is straightforward, no-holds-barred, bare-knuckled brawling and it will kick your ass.
This album is absolutely relentless. If you like your death metal full of spite, fury, and punishing riffs, then look no farther.
