Totten Korps are a band from Chile that plays a very brutal form of occult death metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Supreme Commanders Of Darkness" which will be re-issued on vinyl by Blood Harvest.
A very fast and brutal sound along with a great amount of blast beats start off the album as well as adding death metal growls and screams onto the recording and the riffs also bring in melodies at times and there is a brief use of ritualistic spoken word parts while the guitar work is very heavily influenced by Morbid Angel.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the solos and leads also remain true to a very brutal style of death metal and the songs also take a lot of influences from t he 90's without sounding out of date and the whole album also remains very heavy and brutal from beginning to ending of the recording.
Totten Korps plays a style of death metal that is very fast and brutal as well as being heavily rooted in the 90's, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Occultism, Satanism, Mythology, Lovecraft and Darkness themes.
In my opinion Totten Korps are a very great sounding brutal occult death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Supreme Commanders Of Darkness" "Hastur's Voice Echoes In Our Mind" "Amarduk" and "Tortured Souls From the Path Of Perdition". 8/5 out of 10.
