Diskord – Oscillation (Hellthrasher Productions)

The old-school death metal ‘revival,’ as folks used to call it, has now lasted for about as long as the original golden era of death metal did. Unsurprisingly, it’s produced precious few indelible bands, but Norway’s Diskord are among that happy few who’ve taken the hoary, gory vibe of the old guard and made it their own. Oscillations is a compact burst of frenetic, American-sounding DM that has a way of wobbling wildly off-center before darting in for the killing blow. The techniques all come from various ’90s-era playbooks — Autopsy, Ripping Corpse, early Atrocity, and Human Remains all come to mind — but Diskord’s songs are their own, and they’re worth spending a lot of time with. –Doug [LISTEN]
