Melbourne Australia has been a solid hub for producing hardcore and metal bands and everything in between. The Blackened Death Metal inspired Hardcore band MEREFLESH is the latest Melbourne band looking to stir shit up.
Their debut EP, The Nightmare Begins is four brutally heavy tracks spanning just under fifteen minutes. The band uses their influences of bands like Shattered Realm, Xibalba, and Integrity as well as Cannibal Corpse, Power Trip and Gatecreeper, to crank out their own blend of heavy. Down-tempo rhythms, combined with dueling guitars and guttural screams, The Nightmare Begins keeps you intrigued from beginning to end.
MEREFLESH are not trying to reinvent the wheel or be something they're not. Just an honest band doing what they do and doing it well. As promising as this EP is I expect bigger and better things for this band in the years to come.
