    The Latin American underground metal scene is as alive and well as a jaguar that stalks its prey in the night. These countries are showing time and again that they are arguably some of the best apex predators of the scene. One of the behemoths of the San José underground are Savage Existence who are back with their self-titled sophomore album.

                As an album ‘Savage Existence’ takes its cues from thrash metal, but this isn’t your big-name thrash sanitised by a clean production, it takes a heavier, dirtier assault. Therefore, ‘Savage Existence’ embraces groove metal as one of its main prongs of attack whilst leaning on elements of death metal and metalcore too. Through tracks such as ‘Matricide’, ‘Enigma’ and ‘Steady Blows to the Head’, Savage Existence show that this band have all the guile of Sepultura and Incendiary, but also the pure groove assault of Pantera, Soulfly and Machine Head, particularly the former with a bass drum drive that would have made Vinnie Paul nod with appreciation. Furthermore, vocalist Anton Darusso stomps about the stage like Phil Anselmo in his prime, in fact, Darusso does a better job than Anselmo these days.

                ‘Savage Existence’ is a good album of groove and whilst it may not set the world on fire, it certainly drags the waters of what a groove metal album should do, and you know what… it does it well. Metal Digest
