Within the last 2-3 weeks, with the UK struggling to decide if it is going to be sunny or rainy (something that isn’t new for us here, but can be annoying lol), I have been listening to the new self-released album by Hungarian Technical Death Metal band Beneath The Void, called “…Into Oblivion”. As I write this review, the rock and metal world has been in mourning with the loss of three legends. But even at this sad time, listening to this album has brought comfort, no matter how the day is. Whether bad or good, “…Into Oblivion” has suited any day for me. If you would like to know more, please continue to read.
Beneath The Void were founded only a little earlier this year, after renaming from Kill With Hate, which was the active band name from 2007-2021. They hail from the Hungarian capital city of Budapest, and “…Into Oblivion” is the band’s debut album, with only 2 EP’s and a full-length album under the previous band name. “…Into Oblivion” gives the band a completely new beginning to start from, and with the quality of the technical death metal that they play, it shows you not the past, but the present and the future and I, for one, can’t wait to see how the future goes for Beneath The Void.
“…Into Oblivion” is an intense, in your face album, that has shown me the band put everything and more into the work they did to bring this album to fruition. In a way they remind me of another intense and in your face band, Dethklok. I mean this only as a compliment, as it can’t be easy to keep such a high intensity going for a whole album. Tracks 1 and 11, named “Elegy” and “Oblivion” respectively, begin with instrumentals that give off the feeling of a horror movie, similar to A Nightmare On Elm Street or Friday The 13th, which send chills down my spine each time I hear either song.
This album has so much to offer the listener that it actually makes it really difficult to choose a song that standouts more than the others! So, for this album, I don’t have a standout song! The album as a whole stands out, amongst many other bands I listen to, which is no minor feat, as they include Judas Priest, Megadeth, Dethklok and Slayer. Beneath The Void, with this amazing ‘fresh start’ album, can stand with the best of them.
