The first time I saw this band’s name I thought that they were Americans. Not in my wildest imagination had I thought them to be Colombian. Satanath keep rereleasing the back catalogue which gives me a chance to experience them for the first time. As much as I love brutal death metal as much do I have issues with “Supreme Knowledge Domain”, the first album originally released in 1999. It is not bad stuff. If you like that whole brutal US death metal that goes chugga chugga this will appeal to you. What I do oppose to is the sound. It is too weak to do the brutality any justice. I can’t help wondering where the guitars are in the mix. All I pretty much hear is the growls and the drums. But as a document of a band in its infancy this is cool (3/5). On ”Unmercyful Extermination” you get much more of the same thing you got on the debut. But this time it feels that the band has taken steps on the evolutionary stairs. This one feels a bit more matured. It is still brutal death metal the US way and with growls from the deepest pit of hell. The song writing on this one feels like it is going in the right direction. If you don’t know of the band, or you know of them but have not their records this is the time to get them (3,5/5). Anders Ekdahl
