SCALPTURE from NRW present their 2nd studio album ''Eisenzeit''. Good old school Death Metal enriched with a pretty nasty mixture of GRAVE, BOLT THROWER or also TOTENMOND are on the menu of the five from the EVOKED environment. The material is really mature and even without knowing the first album, ''Eisenzeit'' is a real beast and shows that Germany has become a leading force in the European Death Metal underground. Various bands comes into mind with the 10 tracks, but the guys understand how to do their own thing from their influences, which are clearly both European and American in origin. The band deals thematically with the history of the First World War. SCALPTURE's meaningful stories are frighteningly relevant to the present & you only need to listen carefully to the album to see that humanity obviously does not learn from past mistakes. The damn thick production without a flimsy vintage character tops it all off. Be sure that SCALPTURE will actively shape the future of the scene, no matter how bellicose it may be in this country.
