Formed in 2012 and hailing from Scotland Beckon quickly made a name for themselves on the local scene pounding venues to mere dust, leaving ears bleeding and have now started getting recognition further afield outside of their homeland and could be the next band to put Scotland on the metal map. Selected best new band by Metaltalk.net in 2012 and honing their craft to metallic perfection with this demo which presents three well oiled and refined metal tracks which pack a punch that is not for the faint hearted.
Savage and brutal like a possessed dog with rabies. Modern without being processed and crap for want of a better word. This is a band delivering primed thrashing death metal with forward thinking, relentlessly unforgiving and heavy riffs but with their feet firmly positioned in the solid foundation of metals foundations. The vocals are delivered with snarling intent and all the venom of a lethal bite but the singer can also sing when he wants to but not in metalcore whining way which makes you want to smash your speakers to a pulp for making you endure such sugar coated blasphemy but more in the way you would call Phillip Anselmo a great vocalist and singer. Even during the final track"Dirty Ape" I am reminded of Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden in fact the whole song reminds me of Maiden but in a very modern sense. For a demo this is a perfect and primed metal fix ready to detonate in your face delivering pure metal, this would even put the official releases of some bands to shame. What more can I say the riff likes it.
