Albums That Will #$@&%*! Your Face Off in 2016: Collision, Satanic Surgery


It’s January, and you know what that means — it’s time for MetalSucks’ seventh annual new year preview, Albums That Will #$@&%*! Your Face Off! As with previous years, we won’t be spotlighting all the great releases coming out this year, but, rather, concentrating on lesser-known bands whose new releases might otherwise escape your attention. Look for these posts by assorted MetalSucks staffers throughout the week. We hope you enjoy ‘em!

Satanic Surgery (Hammerheart)
February 19

Who the fuck are CollisionSatanic Surgery is apparently the Dutch band’s fourth album, but I ain’t never heard of ’em ’til now, and truth be told, I only checked out the promo because of the rad cover art by Luis Sendon:

Collision - Satanic Surgery

Ladies and germs, I am pleased to report that this is one of these instances where you totally can judge a book by its cover: Satanic Surgery is insane, and insanely good. The accompanying press notes claim that Satanic Surgery is “Surprisingly catchy for such a high octane and ballistic album,” and that’s not just hype. Grindcore with a particularly-noticeable thrash influence, Satanic Surgery has no fat on it — each and every song is a totally ripper, the kind of tune that makes you wanna get so drunk you puke on a stranger, get in a fight, and end up in jail. I can only imagine the intensity of the mosh pits this record will no doubt inspire.

Luckily, you won’t have to wait very long to hear Satanic Surgery for yourself: it drops next month! In the meantime, why not sample some of its wares via album opener and lead single “Cripple the Cross,” hm?
