"If you are looking for a band that puts out straight up, raw brutality then you want Deeds Of Flesh. I have been a death metal, grindcore listener since I was 12 (for the last 10 years), and I am yet to find a band that comes close to Deeds Of Flesh in brutality. Although I think this is their weakest album, it's still heavier than any other bands material by far. "Gradually Melted", "Inbreeding The Anthropophagi", and "Trading Pieces" are their first three albums; all of which are beyond brutal to the extreme. It's hard to put into words just how extremely brutal Deeds Of Flesh is, but I hope I emphasized the point for you. I know over 1000 bands, and their is only two bands remotely close: Yattering, and Disgorge. Bands like Mortician, Nile, and Krisiun are jokes compared to these bands. Check out the underground."
THE MOST BRUTAL ALBUM EVER!!!!!!!!!

"Give it up for a great new band in the underground scene. These guys really destroy their instruments as they go along. The 9 tracks featured give you a dose of mind-crushing death metal. A constant storm of heavy guitars and drums as fast as you have ever seen. I gave it four stars because the album only lasts 33 minutes and sometimes, the vocals are a little hard to understand even with the lyrics. Anyway, give DEEDS OF FLESH a try. Maybe you'll be pleasently surprised! This one isn't for the faint of heart!!!"

"I had a chance to see these guys live, and was very impressed. I picked up the album, and I can say that it is one of the better death metal releases I've heard in quite some time. No frills, no gimmicks - just brutally fast death metal with cruel vocals. The music flows together exceptionally well, and even the lyrics are pretty creative. Every now and then, you just need to hear a death metal album that goes for the throat, and "Path Of The Weakening" does just that. Death metal fans, take note! If you haven't heard of these guys yet, you will!"

"As you may have noticed by my user name, I love Deeds Of Flesh. They are my favorite band not only for their incredible brutality, but for their consistency in putting out great albums. I have all of Deeds Of Flesh's albums, and "Path of The Weakening" is the 2nd best out of the 4. It's an incredible album, but clearly not their best. If you are unfamiliar with Deeds Of Flesh, they are in the vein of "Effigy of The Forgotten" era Suffocation and "Tomb of The Mutilated" era Cannibal Corpse; only twice as BRUTAL. They also are much more underground and associated with the death/gore/grind underground scene. They combine super deep guttural death vocals with the fastest drumming you'll ever hear and the most thick and brutal guitars ever. They will leave you pummeled six feet into the ground. They may not be the sickest band ever, but the make up for lack of gore with the extremity of their music. There are only two other bands at the same level in brutality, and they are Disgorge (of Mexico) and Devourment. Deeds of Flesh, Devourment and Disgorge are all brutal beyond anything you have every heard or could imagine. If you want some other sick and brutal death, then check out Deed's albums "Gradually Melted" and "Trading Pieces", both are excellent and ultra brutal death. Also check out Disgorge's "Chronic Corpora Infest" and especially "Forensick"; both are sick, disgusting and absolutely insane brutal gore/death. Devourment's "Molesting The Decapitated" and "Reincremation" are equally brutal. If you are interested in the underground brutal death scene then you would probably like; Yattering, Disgorge (of USA), Circle Of Dead Children, Blood, Agathocles, Death of Millions, Vile, Brutality Reigns Supreme, Sepsism, Eternal Suffering, Dehumanized, Odious Sanction, Brodequin, Pyaemia and Pyrexia... Deeds of Flesh new album "Mark of The Legion" will be released in June so check it out."
