Cover painting by Adam Burke.

Coming somewhat unexpectedly, Jade’s debut album, The Pacification Of Death, is an end-of-the-year treat for any death metal fan. Incorporating elements of Bølzer, Sulphur Aeon, and The Ruins Of Beverast, this band offers an engrossing take on death metal that is doomy, blackened, melodic, progressive, and exceptionally atmospheric. The synth arrangements give it a cosmic edge, while especially interesting are the clean vocals, whose delivery reminisces the ones used on Mayhem’s Grand Declaration Of War.

Gift-wrapped in Adam Burke’s spectacular cover art, this is a present you need to give yourself, so head over at Bandcamp and get it.

Somewhat surprising that such a music comes from Spain, cause it bears traits of british dm, i also feel some Swallow the sun, bit of Paradise Lost, even some Bolt thrower...and with this eerie echoing clean vocals, just great.

A Nice Guy
This is one if the most interesting and satisfying releases of the year for me definitely, with so much genre fusions going on it actually sounds original. It's marvelously constructed with exceptional guitarwork and a great bass and drumming rhythm in which I too hear a hint of Bolt Thrower like others have mentioned. It has a very solid use of vocal styles from the harsh growls to the clean howling, with a dense, emotional atmosphere, and it's all brilliantly layered and mixed.

Nice early morning Xmas treat for me

I like this album a lot. I hear a bit of Bolt Thrower but it also reminds me of newer bands like Sulphur Aeon and Hooded Menace as well.

Really good album... the influence of Sulphur Aeon is notorious.

Really original sounding death metal, the riffs are delicious. The second track is so good.
Leeches everywhere.
