TO FORGIVE IS TO SUFFER, The Best of New Death Metal – Volume 2 (October 2017)

As the cold of winter approaches and the hours of light become shorter every day, let us be captured from the darkness of the most heavy and obscure sounds we can find today in metal.

TO FORGIVE IS TO SUFFER is the periodical compilation of this blog with the best of Death Metal. I present today the second issue of the series which includes tracks from the latest beautiful works by The Haunted, Dyscarnate, Enslaved, Sun Of The Sleepless and Integrity.

The compilation develops around one of the best – and underrated – horror movies which I saw when I was a teenager. I let you find the title. Let me just say that it deals with a sinister secret which has been kept in the basement of an abandoned Los Angeles church, something that could mean the end of the world.

TO FORGIVE IS TO SUFFER, Volume 01 – The Best of New Death Metal (July 2017)

Edit:  a new volume of this mixtape series has been published on the blog. Check here for the full list of entries.


TO FORGIVE IS TO SUFFER is the newest enty in Guerino’s series of mixtapes, and this one is specifically dedicated to present and enjoy the new releases in Death Metal. You will find here the best and most recent songs, selected and mixed in a seamless flow of brutality and musical violence.

The first volume is clearly inspired by the beautiful album Anticult which has been released a week ago by Polish death metal masters Decapitated. This proved to be a very good LP and it confirmed all the expectations we had on this release. I’ve extracted a couple of songs from Anticult, which have been used to open and close the mix.

Decapitated are here accompanied by other great artists of the caliber of VallenfyreGod DethronedThe Project Hate MCMXCIX, and Infernäl Mäjesty. You can access to more information about these bands and their last albums in a recent post I published on the blog.

Enjoy the mix, and stay tuned for future releases in the series.
