Album Review: V/A The Legion Of TchorT Compilation #13

V/A The Legion Of TchorT Compilation #13 
Produced by Nitroatmosfericum Records
The Legion Of TchorT Zine
Reviewed by: Dave Wolff

Here is the latest volume of the Legion Of TchorT compilation series, active as ever when it comes to giving underground metal bands exposure to new listeners. Tchort aka Carlos Leo, the editor of Peru’s Legion Of Tchort zine who compiles and distributes this series, has been circulating these compilations for several years. For as long as he’s been doing so I’ve kept up with this series and the zine behind it. I can attest Tchort always delivers the most extreme music that world-spanning underground scenes have to offer. You can imagine the extensive roster of bands he has assisted since his undertaking began. On Volume 13 we have bands originating from the U.S., Spain, Germany, Brazil, Ireland, Italy, Turkey, Singapore, Iran, Sweden, South Korea, all unsigned and all uniquely promising. Another distinction is this volume is available on cassette as well as on compact disc, with the usual impressive packaging and a thorough track listing. You won’t find any mainstream-friendly pleasantries here, only the darkest and most creative music to push the envelope, courtesy of such bands as Anachronaeon, Succubus, Bode Preto, Nathorg, Nocturnal Damnation, Druid Lord,  Infernal Executor, Sirannon and many more. The list of bands featured by Leo’s zine is as extensive as that of his comp series. Links to information about the zine is available through his Facebook address offered above.
