Trevor Proctor's Top 25 singles, EPs and demos of 2018.



As with previous years we've been treated to a serious amount of lethal music during 2018, from bands releasing debuts to established bands we've had a hell of a lot to listen to during the year. The only downside with such a productive year is trying to keep this list to 25 which was a very difficult task - this year I've also included streams from every release so there's a lot of music for you to listen to below.

Pulverized (Chile) - Monuments of Misanthropy - Press Release + Album Stream.


Press Release by Zoheb  from Qabar – Extreme Music PR.

Article posted by Trevor Proctor.

Chilean cadavers Pulverized awoke in the city of Santiago in 2006. 
They perform death metal with a strong American influence from the early '90s, without leaving aside the essences of the glorious South American extreme metal scene. Their lyrical themes touch the thoughts about life, death, Christianity and its moral decadence in Western Society. Having two demo releases in their discography, they have already illustrated the sign of miasmic assault, that is uncontrollably fierce and absolutely petrifying.
