THE TRUE IDEAL REALIZED THROUGH THE UNDERGROUND
Part 2
Bloodbath Records / Underground Warder / Weird Truth, 2000
A 18 tracked, 10 band compilation Japan. This is one of the good showcase of Japanese death metal. It comes with an 8 page booklet with all info, except for some mistake on BASILISK phone number. About the band, 3 tracks from DECAPITATION (brutal death metal), MORTALIZED (brutal death/grind), HYDROPHOBIA (death) all of them contribute 3 songs each. 2 songs from EVOL (grind/rock, check out the review of their old demo in our previous issue. 1 song actually, the other one is only 40 sec intro) and CAVE IN DEPTH (atmospheric melodic dark/doom). And 1 tracks from; STILL BIRTH (death/doom), SACRED BLOOD (melodic death/black), BAKED BOMB, BASILISK, and CRYPTIC REVELATION. There are some good bands and also not-so-good bands but this is a good preview of the current Japanese death metal scene.
