Fleshless – Devoured Beyond Recognition

Fleshless - Devoured Beyond Recognition
Even if there are thousands of bands in this world, I can’t help feeling that I should have at least heard of or seen the name of a death metal band that has been around since 1993 and has released eight full-length albums. Nevertheless, Czech Fleshless have miraculously avoided my attention entirely.

The four-piece come from grindcore origins, but have along the way shifted over to focus on death metal/gore. See the cover – sort of a hint of themes macabre. Not that you can tell exactly what the lyrics are about of course –  Vladimir’s vocals are as guttural as Dave Ingram’s and slightly less clearly pronounced.

Fleshless weren’t put in this world to create revolutions. There is nothing new here, just dark brutality, excellent execution and neck-breaking music played by a bunch of guys who’ve been around long enough to do that exactly the way it’s supposed to be done without necessarily being in the premier league of death metal.

When my old buddy Kenn Jensen asked me if I wanted to contribute to the new site he had created, then called powermetal.dk, I didn't hesitate. My love for metal music was and is great. I wrote my first review during the summer of 2004 (Moonspell's 'Antidote' album). In 2015, I took over the editor-in-chief role.
