Although death metal has had several birthing points, a foetus squeezed out in Florida and Sweden with a Caesarion also done in England, death metal quickly became a worldwide phenomenon with countless bands climbing all over each other to be the best, the goriest and the most brutal. Recently, one band to throw their hat in the ring are Eyemaster as the German death metal band deliver their debut demo ‘Charcoaled Remains/Festering Slime’.

                Naming your demo that makes a big statement about what you intend to do as a band and that is burn the body and dissolve the remains in a vat of acid until its slime. Therefore, Eyemaster waste no time in getting out their surgical kit and scrubbing in for some dissection. As a demo release, the listener knows what they are getting with ‘Charcoaled…’, this is the body still on the table and it’s bleeding out raw. Yes, it is demo quality but that doesn’t take away from the integrity which Eyemaster put forward as they deliver some gnarly riffage that would appeal to fans of Autopsy, Entombed and Grave. Furthermore, there is a little bit of something else here and Eyemaster find that in the rock n’ roll drive of Motörhead, Venom and Midnight which really gives this demo some added firepower.

                This demo shows the world what Eyemaster are capable of accomplishing and with a bit of polish and a little bit of tightening up, it’ll be interesting to see what they can deliver with an EP or full-length studio album.
