new video by metal giants Otargos, from the album "Apex Terror"
"Fleshless-Deathless" is the name of the video and track from the album "Apex Terror." Go here for the video. www.facebook.com/OTARGOSband Otargos: “Apex Terror” (Listenable Records) Otargos has brought its best game, serving notice to the modern/blasting death metal audiences that there is another player at the table. Otargos has been around for years, often seen as a black metal band. However, it’s time to change that assessment, I believe. In important ways, Otargos’ death metal template is, for reference purposes, Behemoth’s “Demigod.” Otargos epitomizes modern clinical death metal: thick guitars, perfect drumming and superblazing speeds. To balance out the blasting, Otargos adds grooves/midpaced moments. Sometimes it’s a fast song, followed by a groove one; or, a combination of both within a song. The black metal elements in Otargos nowadays are less obvious because of the death metal production, but there is no doubt that some of the guitar work is stamped with black metal origins, although, beyond doubt, it is more than clear that Otargos is in the Behemoth/Belphegor/Negator camp. In talent, songwriting and production, Otargos should be taken into account by those viewing this style favorably.
