Debauchery
Germany's Next Death Metal
July 2011
Released: 2011, AFM Records
Rating: 3.5/5
Reviewer: Metal-Rules.com UK Team

Debauchery’s seventh album “Germany’s Next Death Metal” finds their very own interpretation of Death’n’Roll is perfected. In today’s TV shows presenters are casting new pop idols or search for the next top model. B-list celebrities eat maggots in the jungle. Entertainment culture spirals downward. But there is relief! “Germany’s Next Death Metal“ is a middle finger to the mass media.



“The Unbroken” is a comical start to the album. Its loosely follows another song and they have added in some fun twists along with heavy vocals. “Zombie Blitzkrieg” is more normal death metal style with growly vocals and guitars. ”Warmachines At War” is more mainstream metal than death metal, however it is a great sounding track with catchy bass line and guitars.



“Animal Holocaust” is done in old school thrash style. This will definitely be a great pit song played live! “Bloodslaughter Onslaught” is more mainstream however still delivers some brutal style guitars and lyrics. This brings us into the slower “Germany`s Next Death Metal”. “School Shooter” brings the speed back up a few notches and along with “Death Will Entertain” takes us back into the older thrash metal style. “Armed For Apokalypse” and “Genocider Overkill” both these tracks all start of slightly slower and speed up and pack a solid sound in the choruses. “Killing Is Our Culture” is back to old school death/trash metal style with some nice groove to the guitars.



I have to admit this is album that definitely appeals to a wide audience. Its comedy inspired death ‘n’ roll type lyrics along with solid guitar riffs, a few different style of music, making this a good album to listen.

Reviewer: JP

I don’t know how I missed these guys over the years. I suppose with 10-12 albums being released per day it’s hard to keep up but you would think I would have recognized this great band! There at least 10 bands out there called Debauchery so for the record we are talking about the German Death ‘n’ roll band who have just delivered album lucky number seven in a mere nine years. That’s a good pace!



First impression count and ya can’t go wrong with an image of a blood-splattered chick with a giant chainsaw on the front cover. This lady puts the Accept ‘chick with chainsaw’ to shame! I would not be at all shocked if Debauchery intended the cover as a loving tribute to Accept. The weird album title of GERMANY’S NEXT DEATH METAL might not help international exposure but at least the direct advertising approach works. Ya know you are likely to get…well…German Death Metal!



This is a really, really fun record. The vocals are low and guttural but fully distinguishable and vocalist Thomas Gurrath has lots of fun with the lyrics, which are simple and direct, kind of dumb and fun…like ‘Warmachines at War’. There are any number of stripped down simple Death Metal tracks fused with rock ‘n’ roll tracks here that hit directly into the groove center of the brain…’Zombie Blitzkrieg’ and title track work well! It’s not that fast or complex and for us older fans there is a very old vibe running through the album. The band display their obvious old-school influences by their choice of a cover tune namely Alice Cooper’s classic cut ‘School’s Out from 1972!



I could rattle off any number of bands who are in this style, Unleashed, Six Feet Under, Entombed etc and Debauchery for kill-factor is as competent as any of them. GERMANY’S NEXT DEATH METAL has a track called ‘Death Will Entertain’. It most certainly will. For old-school Death Metal fans with an appreciation of rock and roll and good times, truer words were never spoke.
