LABEL DESCRIPTION (Willowtip Records)

From the “Land of the Rising Sun” Japanese technical brutal death metal DESECRAVITY have returned with their newest and arguably most devastating album ANATHEMA. The record was mixed and mastered at Unisound Studio by the mighty Dan Swanö and shows the band returning to their filthy, pulverizing, classic and ultra-technical sound; a pure whirlwind of musical ferocity and auditory savagery that cannot be missed!

Tech-Death Tuesday: Early Stream of Anathema From Tokyo-based Speed Demons DESECRAVITY

Echoes and Dust (UK)

Technical death metal is one of the more maligned and ignored subsets of heavy music. It is frequently ugly, atonal and… too darn technical for its own good. At its worst it is like grindcore for people who think they are clever, or prog for over-caffeinated misanthropes.

Cadaver Garden

Having begun their terrorizing venture in 2007, Desecravity have been pushing the boundaries of technical brutal death metal. With two full length releases under their belt and a third on the way by the name of Anathema,

Brutalism (Netherland)

Holy Shit!!!!! Who gave Rush all the meth and rage? Tokyo’s Desecravity, is about to drop a killer follow up to “Organic Signs” by name of “Anathema”. With every album, they evolve in every sense of the word.

Desecravity are a Japanese death metal band and this is their third album.

Rock ‘N’ Load

Formed in Tokyo in 2007, Japanese band Desecravity began playing shows in 2008 and have shared stages with bands such as Exodus, Aborted, Megadeth, The Black Dahlia Murder and Dying Fetus to name just a few. These heavyweights of Technical Brutal Death Metal are now back, ready to lay waste with their new release.

Son of Flies (Italy)

Terzo album per la formazione giapponese formatasi a Tokyo nel 2007, un lavoro maturo e impreziosito da pregevoli parti strumentali che seguono le regole del death metal tecnico e feroce.

The Metal Gamer

Japan’s very own answer to Origin are back with their third full-length album! After a change in the line-up since their last critically acclaimed album Orphic Signs I was interested to hear what that would do to Desecravity’s sound. I mean not only is Shogo Tokita a great guitarist, he also did vocals in the band so it’s not an easy member to replace. Now the growling duty falls solely on Yujiro Suzuki (who plays guitar as well), while they’ve added Yuya Takeda (Deadly Spawn) on guitar to the band.

La tecnica al servizio di un metal estremo di matrice death devastante: dal Sol Levante, terra di grandi musicisti attivi nella scena metal classica e power, arrivano i Desecravity, band nata a Tokio nel 2007 ed arrivata al terzo lavoro sulla lunga distanza.

No Clean Singing

It’s been quite a bit since my last small review here at NCS. Nonetheless, I now have the opportunity to write about one of my favorite acts from Japan. That band is Desecravity, and they released their third album entitled Anathema via Willowtip Records this past 25th of January.

Deadly Storm (Czech)

Možná jsem to mohl jako vášnivý čtenář sci-fi knih vědět. Už jsou tady! Roboti z budoucnosti, kteří nás přiletěli zkoumat, dělat na nás pokusy, případně nás vyhladit. Koneckonců, nic jiného si stejně nezasloužíme. Tak proč to neurychlit. Jakoby zemi zahalila temnota. Nejdřív byly strženy veškeré modly, zesměšněni všichni svatí. Potom začala apokalypsa.


Mark my words: Willoptip Records is one of the most underrated labels in metal today. Their brand of unrelenting, uncompromising, and often weird death metal is unequaled today in its quality. Case in point, Desecravity, a technical death metal band from Japan who has now released Anathema through the aforementioned label, their first album in five years. These guys deal in the fastest, most absolutely jaw-dropping kind of death metal, effortlessly weaving between sweep, blast-beats and guttural vocals, dishing out track after track of punishing brutality.
