Metal Hammer (UK) - - Reviews - MAG­DALENA MEDVED


SEPREVATIO­N [7] kick tonight off with a blast of fire and fury. They per­form bet­ter with a fully warmed-up crowd, but their speedy old-school thrash/death raises the spir­its of the early ar­rivees. DE­CREPIT [6] de­liver ex­pertly ex­e­cuted, no-non­sense death metal. Though a few loyal fans go wild, their per­for­mance be­comes rather mo­not­o­nous due to songs clearly in thrall to the likes of De­cide and Vi­tal Re­mains. Nor­we­gians REPTILIAN [7] start off slow, dark and heavy, with a style of dis­so­nant, night­mar­ish but a doomy death metal. Their set gets faster to­wards the end with­out los­ing its grim­i­ness, bor­der­ing on the at­mos­phere of com­pa­tri­ots Oblit­er­a­tion. Fel­low Nor­we­gians EX­E­CRA­TION [8] are known for their unique ap­proach. They man­age to com­bine a mul­ti­tude of in­flu­ences – mostly of prim­i­tive death metal with pro­gres­sive el­e­ments – into a mas­sively en­gag­ing live show. It’s a thrilling per­for­mance, and of­fers proof that Nor­we­gian ex­treme metal is evolv­ing while still chan­nelling its orig­i­nal po­tency.
