Azooma are exporting death metal from Iran, and the act’s A Hymn of the Vicious Monster EP is representative of their wicked skills. Split into chapters, the EP delivers muffled gutturals that sit nicely within the pulverizing guitar riffs and rambunctious passages.

This is straightforward death metal, indulging only in the fundamentals that built extreme metal’s most prized possession into what it is today. At the same time, Azooma attack from several rhythmic directions that keep ears free of monotony. They even throw in some flavorful singing, give praise to the rich-sounding bass and offer a taste of a folksy feel. The bottom line is: This is substance. This is durable, polished death metal.
