Heaving Earth are a band from the Czech Republic that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very dark, blasphemous and brutal form of death metal and this is a review of their album "Denouncing The Holy Throne" which will be released in 2015 by Lavadome Productions.
Dark and evil sound effects start off the album which leads up to some morbid sounding melodies that start taking the music into a heavier direction along with some blast beats, fast riffs and deep death metal growls and the songs have an early Florida feeling but updated for the modern day with the music having more of a brutal and technical style.
Throughout the recording there is a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the guitar leads displaying a great amount of talent and skill along with a great amount of melody on some of the later tracks and there are also some dark and atmospheric parts being added into certain sections of the recording and they also bring in a few brief instrumentals one which also brings in a small amount of clean playing before returning back to vocal tracks and all of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and a couple of the songs are also long and epic in length.
Heaving Earth creates a style of death metal that is very heavily rooted in the 90's Florida and Polish tradition but brings in enough melody, brutality and technical playing that also makes their songs have more of a modern day feeling, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark, blasphemous and occult themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Heaving Earth and if you are a fan of dark and blasphemous death metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Final Crowning" "Worms Of Rusted Congregation" "Into The Depths Of Abomination" and "Jesus Died". 8 out of 10.
