Impressive. That's the word to define this first album by the Portuguese RAGEFUL,an extraordinary technical and brutal Death Metal album that will leave you open-mouthed.
Start with an intro of just a few seconds leading to "Inhuman Greed", the first track. An absolutely amazing Death Metal bulldozer with super fast parts mixed with half-times and heart attack.
I do not want to review topic by topic so as not to bore you, although I must highlight three for your excellence: "Slavery Ways", "Clouds Of Fear" and the theme that closes the album, "Portugal The Torch", a plea to the forest fires that occurred a few years ago in those lands and that took the lives of 144 people ahead of them. Reading the lyrics, RAGEFUL moves far from the typical theme of style, focusing on more social themes, giving the album a different air.
Musically, imagine a mix between HATE ETERNAL, VADER and some ORIGIN, all with a personal halo and a few acojona tes instrumentalists. Seriously, those guitars are just brutal.
Add to all this an incredible production and you have before you a very good brutal Death Metal record with almost surgical instrumentation. One pass.
Another point to keep in mind is that it's self-edited, more reasons to get it done. Support the scene, leave yourself a few euros and put on this fucking record now... 8/10 - Necromance Magazine
A Death Metal band from Lisbon (Portugal), initially formed in 2011, under the name "WALL OF DEATH".
Later in 2016, yet due to that line-up changes, and also because of some musical changes, they decided to change their name to "RAGEFUL", marking the beginning of a new era, and of a more mature sonority.
"INEPTITUDE" is the name that has been chosen to sum up in one word the whole lyric concept of the album. Parallelism is made with our current society, full of interests and corruption, in which, most of the time, we choose to be selfish and inept.
This debut record - Independently released in September 2020 - is the result of 4 years of a lot of sweat and difficult decisions. The band set the bar high and learned a lot along the way, so the quality that has been deposited on this record is undoubtedly something that fills the band with pride.
