The name may sound a bit weird, considering that Tottenkorps are from Chile. But don't let yourself be deterred by that. Tharnheim: Athi-Land-Nhi; Ciclopean Crypts Of Citadels (yes, that's the complete title of the album, with the correct punctuation) is a masterpiece of death metal music.

Of course, a band that has been around for more than a decade has a certain understanding of how the music works, and instead of copying modern trends, Tottenkorps go back to the very beginning of time when death metal was still brutal, and crossing the genre with hellish grind core was something very common.

Even the song titles make you feel as if you were participating at a Black Mass, but don't worry, there's no black metal to this music, but rather death metal as fuck. Ever wondered if Brazil is the only South American country delivering good extreme music? Well, don't worry any longer, because Tottenkorps are just the right medicine to bang your head to.

Not really original, but very entertaining and not following any stupid trends. 8 points and thumbs up.
