Dead Rhetoric premieres new song of Greek death metal legends DEATH COURIER

Greek death metal band Death Courier‘s latest album has received a tremendous response. Their style of sharp, brisk death metal is highly addictive and the vocal delivery too is exceptional. For such an old band from the ’80s to have such a powerful, updated sound, it’s nothing but commendable. US site Dead Rhetoric premiered a brilliant song AT THIS LINK.

“it hits that old school death metal mark and it’s sure to wake you up from any Monday blues. Frantic riffing and thrashy tones meet death metal fury in all the right ways. It instantly hits the gas pedal and never lets up.”

Legendary death metal band Death Courier are one of the earliest bands from the Greek metal scene releasing a slew of demos from way back in 1987 and putting out an album and an EP in the early ’90s. More than three decades later, the band is on the verge of releasing one of the strongest albums to come from the Greek death metal scene. It’s hard to believe that this is the same band because the energy level is off the charts and everything has been amped up to match present day standards without of course changing the core sound and integrity. The music is still essentially the pulsating, rabid death/thrash metal kind and there remains that palpable hunger in the members to create memorable and gnarly music that they were known for. This is a lethal new album that throws down the gauntlet to the naysayers doubting the band’s prowess after so many years, who will invariably be forced to eat their words. ‘Necrotic Verses’ will grab you by the throat and won’t let go till the shockingly potent album is over. Death Courier have set new standards for themselves and others to look up to, all over again.
