Lelahell-Al Insane​.​.​.The (Re​)​Birth Of Abderrahmane

Horror Pain Gore Death Productions

Active since 2010, Lelahell is a three-piece band from Algiers, Algeria. With a 2012 EP entitled "Al Ihtiquar" already to their name (featuring a cover of Mayhem's "Freezing Moon" nonetheless!) this death metal/extreme metal outfit now offers up the debut album "Al Insane... The (Re)Birth Of Abderrahmane". Featuring 10 tracks in total and falling just shy of the 41 minute mark "Al Insane... The (Re)Birth Of Abderrahmane" was mixed and mastered by Ivan of Anthropocide Studio (Abominable Putridity, Aborted Fetus) and features some cool cover artwork courtesy of Kaamos Illustration (Hypocrisy, Pain).While the 2012 EP* was a one-man project of Leahel (Carnavage, ex-Neanderthalia, ex-Litham, ex-Devast) this new album finds Lelahel (vocals, guitar) joined by bass player Nihil (Barbaros) and drummer Slaveblaster (Barbaros, ex-Devast, ex-Orcus (live) and ex-The Kult ov Satanåchiîa). Between the three musicians there is a experience and it most assuredly shows on the group's initial Horror Pain Gore Death Productions offering! To the music's advantage Leahel's vocals lean closer to the black metal side of things while the actual music in question is nothing short of brutal, technically-savvy Cannibal Corpse/Suffocation-style death metal! The guitar playing of Leahel is rugged and riff heavy. Dare I say it's almost thuggish? It hits the sense like a boxer hitting his target and when you add to that some sick & sinister bass playing and a billion-miles per hour drumming it turns into a hail-storm of extreme metal! The only downside is that some of the cuts here do tend to blend together, but that's such a minor complaint that it's hardly worth mentioning. All told this is some bad ass death metal for fans of aggressive, over-the-top and speed-enhanced extreme metal! If that sounds like you then drop what you're doing and snag a copy of  "Al Insane​.​.​.The (Re​)​Birth Of Abderrahmane" for your personal collection!
