Attack of the Demos! Nohari, Xyphos

First off, let me just say that the cover of this ep is awesome! What is cooler than a girl with purple liquid coming out of her mouth and eyes? On this EP the quality of the artwork and the quality of the music match. Nohari give us six tracks of completely original sounding grindcore. If you are looking for some awesome grind, look no further than this ep. Listen here

Xyphos-What Comes Before
Xyphos are a death metal band from Canada, and they blend a lot of different sounds and influences into their style. I guess Xyphos' style could be called technical death metal, but it is miles ahead of most tech-death. I find most tech-death bands such as Obscura, Necrophagist, and Origin, really boring and showy; like the whole purpose of their music is to show off their musicianship. Xyphos are completely different. The thing I love most about Xyphos is their vocals, they sort of remind me of Skeletonwitch, with their blend of black metal and death metal! Listen here!
