Taking the Head of Goliath, an American Christian Death Metal band originated in the twin cities, Minnesota in the year 2015. What started with Jake Martin, Matt Vangsgard, Nathan Sherman, Rob Blake became best known when they hired Bassist/Backing Vocalist Luke Renno of the band Crimson Thorn. The band signed up with Rottweiler Records when they were featured on the compilation called Kill the Ill a Benefit Compilation for Grave Robber singer and Rottweiler Records founder, Shawn Browning, to raise money for his medical expenses. By the way the compilation is a massive effort to gather 80 bands on to this mother of all Compilations. Do take a moment and check it out.

With caution and an open mind I take upon myself to review their first ever released EP, as it may set out the tone and expectation for the rest of the community. Starting off with “The Expulsion of Putrid Illusion” which has an array of blast beats with heavy guitar riffing and monster growls which are hard to miss at the opening of the song. The band is very tight and their crisp performance pulverises the grey matter of your head. Continue reading »
