七支亞洲死金勁旅逐一介紹!

Scroll down for detailed introduction & websites of every band!



Hydrophobia
日本首席死金團
Leading Death Metal Act in Tokyo


早於1996年成立,Hydrophobia受到Napalm Death和Carcass等碾核(Grindcore)經典樂團啟發,以短時間內急促爆發的路線,爬升到日本死亡金屬界頂尖之列,並與Vader和Carnal Forge國際知名歐洲樂團同台過,及參與亞洲眾多盛大音樂節。2008年時為推廣首張專輯《Human Shredder》,便曾經參與今次活動主辦單位舉行之Tomahawk Metal Fest I並大獲好評,一年後再次成為本港音樂節中壓軸表演嘉賓,錯過他們08年演出又或對上次意猶未盡,現在又有機會了!

HYDROPHOBIA is a three piece grindcore/death metal act that was formed in 1996 in Japan. Since their formation, they continually honed their music that they learned from the early grindcore classic releases of Napalm Death and Carcass mixed with their own touch of death metal. They are considered as one of Japan’s top practitioners of the genre and have already played/supported such high profile acts like Vader (Poland), Carnal Forge (Sweden), Kylesa (USA), etc. They have already toured and played some of Asia’s highly successful festivals just like the ones in Indonesia and Korea. After 12 long years they released their highly anticipated debut album entitled “Human Shredder” through WORLD CHAOS PRODUCTION last May 2008. They supported the album with an Asian tour with their fellow Japanese death/grind act, Defiled. The said tour included shows at Taiwan, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea. The tour solidified their presence in the Asian metal scene and had won them a huge amount of fans outside of their country.

In Oct 2008 they gave us an unforgottable performance in Tomahawk Metal Fest I. If you experienced their brutality and intense stage presence during that first show in Hong Kong, expect that you’ll be in for more the second time.

Cardiac Necropsy
新加坡「淫蕩死亡金屬」
Singaporean Porno Brutal Death Metal


這可能是其中一支新加坡最老死金團,始於1991年的Infernal Scum,同年底解散後便成為了Cardiac Necropsy,名字變兇了,音樂也更加兇殘暴戾,以結合死亡金屬、爆裂碾核和邪惡黑金屬(Black Metal)享負盛名。後來突然消失,十年後再現江湖,在死亡金屬中加進了淫穢的元素,再次震盪人心。為慶祝他們在當地的影響力和成就,2008年新加坡暴力音樂廠牌Vrykoblast Productions,將樂隊近十五年所有作品一次過收錄發行,今次來香港除了宣傳這合輯,當然就是為讓香港人見識「淫蕩死亡金屬」的魅力了!

The morbid history of CARDIAC NECROPSY started back in the early 1991 with the initial name of INFERNAL SCUM. Then somewhere in Sep 1991, they changed their name to suit the intense & brutal music they are playing. Thus, Cardiac Necropsy emerged in the local scene playing Black Death/Grind music.

After several years of silence, in the year 2000, the band resurfaced? with the? sickest & twisted line-ups the metal scene has to offer.? They shifted in playing more brutal grinding materials with a hell whole lotta porno influence. In 2008, Cardiac Necropsy released their 16 YEARS DISCOGRAPHY CD under one of the most brutal label in Singapore, Vrykoblast Productions. The cd included all the songs from 1993-2008. Since then, they have been working with other labels also for splits & compilations & always looking for any opportunities to bring their sick music across to listeners & fans around the globe.. Sick, Brutal & Perverted!!!

Nafrat
新加坡殘暴美學代表
Melodic Brutal Death Metal from Singapore


在北印度語中,憎恨一詞就是Nafrat,沒有多少名字比這更適合這支新加坡樂團了。2007年成立後迅速冒起,兩張迴響正面的demo後,《Through Imminent Visions》在國際間贏得大量支持者,成功因素是表演著最正宗的死亡金屬,要快要狠歌手死腔要深應有盡有,但同時沒有只顧追求官能刺激而忘記音樂性,大量充滿美感的結他演奏和殘暴歌曲形成強烈對比,也是他們個性所在。

NAFRAT is a Singaporean band who released their debut album last year entitled “Through Imminent Visions” after already releasing two highly acclaimed demos.? Playing honest Death Metal that’s all cookie monster growls and brutality—plus beautiful guitar solos—this South East Asian quintet represent the shape of things to come in their region.

Nafrat which formed in 2007 means ‘hatred’ in the Hindi language. They truly live up to their name as they are surely spitting hatred filled death metal upon us.

Revilement
中西合璧的台北樂隊
Taiwanese Brutal Death Metal Band with a Canadian Vocalist


台灣經常出現新的金屬團,但在茫茫中Revilment很易得到大眾留意,全因作為華人樂隊,卻找到個加拿大裔歌手Joe Reviled。成團至今已經三年,期間參加過不少演出,以重節奏感和高侵略度的音樂贏盡掌聲,並經常被拿來和美國殿堂級死金團Dying Fetus比較。但他們不是單純的複製別人,只要聽真一點,便可發現音樂當中有很多屬於他們自己的手法,而得以保持自己的風格正是樂團成功之處。

It seems that lately Taiwan is producing high class death metal acts and REVILEMENT is one of those bands. Formed at Taipei in the fall of 2006, they’ve been brutalizing the Taiwan metal scene since then with their brand of technical slamming death metal. Comparisons to Dying Fetus and the likes is imminent but if you listen carefully, you can feel that they’ve incorporated something of their own to their music which makes them not one of the clones but one of the purveyors of the genre.

Hermetic Silence
大中華地區最強華人死亡金屬樂隊
Hong Kong Death Metal Leader


本地死金老將之一,已有近十年歷史,並曾在內地表演多次,以技術和兇殘見稱的內地群眾,看過他們演出無不心深感動:要數全中國技術最高死金團,Hermetic Silence是個不能不提的名字!音樂塈鋮麭怬痋B最激和最慢各個極端,混合起來高潮疊起,難怪多年來仍是本地最受歡迎重金屬樂團之一。

HERMETIC SILENCE is one of the oldest death metal bands in Hong Kong. Formed in 2000, they keep their music not just as heavy and as intense as they can but they also keep it as true as possible that will remind us of the ugly truth about the society that we’re currently living in. Their diverse musical influences enable them to create a brand of death metal that they can truly call their own.

They are very outspoken regarding their stand about staying true to the music and playing it by heart and not for fame or monetary gain. That’s metal for sure.

Elysium
香港豬叫Grind Death
Hong Kong Grind Death Metal Newcomer


這支年青樂團,風格是香港罕見的殘酷死亡金屬,歌曲殘暴而爆炸力驚人,歌手更是香港難得能完全熟練地運用死亡金屬中「豬叫」和「嘔泥」等極端唱腔之人,是本地新一代中最佳死亡金屬樂隊!Tomahawk Metal Fest (TMF)至今已是第四場,Elysium曾在第一及第三兩場演出過並廣獲好評,在TMF4將擴充陣容和更多全新作品,再為大家帶來精彩演出!

ELYSIUM is Hong Kong’s take on slam deathmetal. Although fairly new to the scene, their original songs are clear testament that they know what they are doing. Their heaviness will put holes in your walls and the vocal delivery is competent enough to compete with the best in the genre. This is definitely Hong Kong’s future of death metal.

Thornslaughter
本地極端金屬新一代菁英
Hong Kong Blackened Death Metal


除Elysium外,另一多人留意之本地年青樂團是Thornslaughter。07年中出道時以節奏強烈之Death Metal/Deathcore作主打,很快明白到不進則退的道理,未有因為得到好評而卻步,反而研究結合黑金屬,年間努力創作,走出了自己的黑死金屬(Blacken Death Metal)路向。雖然這過程耗費了不短時間,但擁有自己個性很多時比單單演奏得好更重要,TMF4正好是個讓樂團開始新里程的起點。

THORNSLAUGHTER is one of Hong Kong newer generation of extreme music enthusiasts. Even though they still haven’t recorded any of their songs, they had already impressed metal enthusiasts with their blackened death metal tunes on some shows they’ve played. They’re definitely worthy of our support and already showing potentials to be one of Hong Kong’s top metal acts in the future.
