A six-song live EP self-released by yet another Brazilian death metal band that seems to be populating my collection as of late. From the looks of things, Blasterror was formed by three former members of Necromanicider and a fourth guy to handle the drums. Sad thing, though, it looks like the reason Blasterror is no more is because two of the members have now passed on into Glory. Hope to see you two soon, my METAL brothers. But anyhoo...
The style of death metal that Blasterror play here on Demo (Live) is the kind of thrashy old school death metal that would put a smile on the face of any fan of Morbid Angel, Death, and fellow Brazilians Sepultura’s earlier albums. Really leaning more towards the thrash end of things, incorporating some intense rhythms and good leads, with growly vocals. The first five songs on the EP are the ones recorded live, and they do sound rather tight in a live setting, ending things with a decent cover of Iron Maiden’s “Aces High”. The last song – “Living On Lies” – is the sole studio cut on here, and judging by that one alone, it’s a pity they only released a four-song EP six years after Demo (Live) was released. The production on the live cuts are a bit rough, but still come off as competently done. Overall, not a bad release to try and get your hands on.
