If there’s any band out there that’s long overdue for a Noob Heavy feature, it’s Feed Them Death. Not only is this the third fantastic project they’ve released since contacting me in early 2020, but Void – the man behind Feed Them Death – also owns a record label called Brucia Recorrds that consistently releases some of the most abrasive avant-garde metal known to man. So yeah, it’s safe to say this one has been a long time coming.

If you’ve paid attention to my reviews for a while, you’ll know that I love deathgrind, and what Feed Them Death does with the genre is truly special. Their sound is very out of the ordinary and experimental. They throw a lot of crazy break-neck time signatures into the mix and implement a lot of ambient and harsh noise. They create what I believe to be true audio destruction.

While this music is very precise and no doubt technical in composition, the raw production gives their music an authentic sound and ravenous atmosphere. The riffs are searing and sharp, backed nicely by some thick rumbling bass lines. The drums also shine as that’s where I feel most of the music’s technical prowess lies, it’s an incredibly vicious yet intricate performance. You can’t go wrong with the chaotic, feral screams laced throughout the record either. I can’t quite pick out a flaw, Void is truly a man of his craft.

The fourth track, “Eulogic (Negative Dialektik)” is something special. The track features my two favorite Brucia Records artists, Derhead (Avante-garde black metal from Italy) and LaColpa (harsh noise/doom metal, also from Italy.) The amalgamation of these sounds is something truly hellish and otherworldly, something to behold.

Another highlight on the tracklist is the exquisite noise/ambient cut “Our Cruelty To Reality (Evokism IV).” This song winds the album down into some darker, more gritty territory. It’s ear piercing yet profound at the same time, this band’s noise cuts have always been unbeatable.

This will easily go down as one of the most unique metal records of the year. This guy and his whole camp are taking risks and pushing metal to Its very limits. Do not miss out.
