Special: Neurotic Deathfest (Part 3 of 5)

orderofennead

Since Neurotic Deathfest is taking place in our beloved Tilburg this weekend, we dedicate this week’s special to this very cool death metal festival!

Next: Order of Ennead, a progressive death metal band incorporating two members of the well-known Deicide (Kevin Quirion – Vocals & Rhythm Guitar and Steve Asheim – Drums, Acoustic Guitar, Piano).

What is the Ennead? The Greater Ennead consists of the 9 beings that gave birth to the universe and bestowed knowledge upon man in Egyptian mythology. Order Of Ennead has taken this term and used it as a representation of the potential creation that lies within. ” Through self awareness we will be enlightened. Through self discipline we will be ascended.”

Since Neurotic Deathfest is taking place in our beloved Tilburg this weekend, we dedicate this week’s special to this very cool death metal festival!

Since grindcore/deathmetal outfit Leng Tch’e played  ZXZW 2005 we’ll start with paying some attention to them:

LENG TCH’E aka death by a thousand cuts, is an ancient Chinese torture ritual where the victim has been doped up and is being cut into bits. The victim doesn’t feel a thing of this procedure until it is far too late and death is unavoidable.

LENG TCH’E the band formed in early 2001, basing their own hybrid of grindcore on bands such as Regurgitate, Hemdale, Nasum and Blood Duster and mixing it all up with some stoner / rock / hardcore influences, the band baptized their own unique style, now known as ‘razorgrind’.
