Death metal from the Netherlands, Bodyfarm subscribe to the tried and true principles of the genre on their second studio album "The Coming Scourge". The four-piece perform with the spirit of the early 90's European scene in terms of their tones, production quality, and riff selection. The eerie horror trilling within "Frontline Massacre" which rolls into an evil growling escapade for guitarist/ vocalist Thomas Wouters, the sneaky slow riff roll against steady Mathieu Westerveld bass plodding that starts "Vortex of Terror", the lull of doom that signals "The Frozen Halls" as each measured word matches the depressive feel of the arrangement - Bodyfarm exemplify solid mechanics in terms of writing and performance.
Bodyfarm are a Dutch death metal band who’ve been ripping flesh since 2009, and hot on the heels of their 2012 debut Malevolence comes 2013’s The Coming Scourge.The quartet is fronted by chief growler Thomas Wouters, who also plays guitar. Wouters is joined by fellow finger-shredder Bram Hilhorst, bassist Mathieu Westerveld and drummer Quint Meerbeek. The sound these guys create can best be described as old school death metal, although some may be rather irritated by the clear Swedish influences which literally erupt from those chainsaw guitars and Wouters’ gravelled rasps.
