Godz Ov War Productions is proud to present Hereza's highly anticipated debut album, "I Become Death". Hailing from Croatia, Hereza are an anomaly: not only for playing death metal in a country otherwise barren for such, but more so that their brand of death fucking metal is so purely and authentically mid '90s, it literally sounds like a lost relic from that era.
Certainly, everyone's well aware of the Swedish death metal boom that kicked off the 1990s, but many overlook where that style went by the middle of the decade. While death 'n' roll became a passing fad, some intrepid warriors upped the speed and dexterity whilst losing none of the gutsfucking brutality and darkness that defined Swedeath early on - and that's where Hereza come in with "I Become Death"!
From the scabrous 'n' surging songwriting on down to even the production itself, "I Become Death" thoroughly accomplishes its titular namesake with a rollicking ride through death metal's past and recasting it in a rottenly fresh manner. And at 10 songs in 30 minutes, Hereza here don't waste any time with niceties: nothing but bulldozing filth and fury. The past is alive with "I Become Death"!
