Masachist – “Scorned”

Masachist – “Scorned” (Selfmadegod Records)

Death metal all the way. Masachist was formed in 2005 by Thrufel (ex-Azarath, ex-Yattering) and Daray (Dimmu Borgir, ex-Vader, Vesania), and later on joined by Heinrich (Vesania, ex-Decapitated, ex-UnSun), Aro (Shadows Land, Torquemada) and Pig (Anal Stench, ex-Decapitated). With a stellar cast, “Scorned” doesn’t disappoint with driller killer riffing, blast beat drumming and evil wailing solos on songs like ‘The Process of Elimination’, ‘Opposing Normality’ and ‘Inner Void’. Pig certainly lives up to his name, providing some of the most guttural vocals I’ve ever heard on a DM album that bring life (or death?) to the blurring brutality that is Masachist. Brilliantly executed and coupled with an intelligent use of slower, heavier and even quieter passages, “Scorned” is premier Polish death metal at its best.
