Hey! Listen To Bhavachakra!

The death metal scene has really seemed to fully embrace the genre’s muddier, grimier, and quirkier side over the past several years, which may be partly due to the reunion of one of the sub-subgenres most important figures, Gorguts. When you consider how ultra-quantized the tech death scene had gotten in recent times, it probably needed to happen. A lot of newer bands have foregone a slicker approach for something much more earthy, slime-soaked and caustic, and it may go without saying that bands like Ulcerate, Artificial Brain and Portal have been writing some of the style’s most exciting new material as of late.
