BRUTAL DEATH FUCK - Demo Review (by Kate Wilcox)

Coming out of Phoenix, Arizona Zach Mounla delivers some of the most brutal death/gore metal that I have heard in a long fucking time. Brutal Death Fuck comes at you like you’re being punched in the face by a bulldozer; this demo carries enormous intensity from start to finish and leaves you wanting more when it’s through with you.
The first track I listened to, “Drinking Blood of the Gods” starts out with massive blastbeats that are followed by Zach’s savage vocals and an insane shredding guitar riff.  One of my favorite tracks, “Children of the Necronomicon” comes in with a pounding drums and chugging guitar that keeps your head banging throughout with Zach chanting “We are the children of the Necronomicon”. The recording and production of this demo is awesome, everything is perfectly balanced, no one instrument overpowers the other and the vocals are dripping with venom. The girl’s screams with the haunting guitar in the background is a perfect ending.
The one track that really stood out to me was “Alcohol” where Zach goes back and forth with cleaner and more melodic vocals (honestly reminds me of Layne Staley) before he throws you back into the pit of brutality. “Elizabeth” is a track that’s just intended to rape your soul and leave you with nightmares for the rest of your life. It’s an awesome song that combines Zach’s clean vocals and low growls with a doom-like procession of chugging riffs and wailing guitar in the background.

The fact that Zach did this all himself amazes me. Like I said there is no overpowering of one instrument over the other and his vocals are never drowned out. Everything is presented perfectly. Brutal Death Fuck is something you need to experience for yourself and can’t wait to see what else he has in store for us!!
