Matthew Toye Deathwards have a knack for that coveted 'Persecution Mania' sound. These tracks have a tightly focused approach and the band is still somehow able to sound raw and crude. I'm eagerly awaiting for their imminent full length's arrival. Favorite track: Impending Prophecies.

Sonny92 Five track demo of full-on thrashing mayhem in the vein of early Kreator / Sodom and Reign in Blood era Slayer. Favorite track: Epitaph From The Underworld.

dale jacobson jr. These 5 tracks are executed so well!
First off..the Persecution Mania era Angelripper vocals just fit so well with the music.
I personally hear more of a Canadian/European Thrash sound.

INVICTUS PRODUCTIONS is proud to present DEATHWARDS striking debut demo, Towards Death.

DEATHWARDS formed in 2017, comprising veterans of the metal underground, and within five months had recorded their very first demo, Towards Death. As aptly titled as their moniker, DEATHWARDS' Towards Death is a timeless, trend-bucking slab of thrashing Metal of Death. Across the five furious-yet-finessed songs here, the band conjoin the primal essence of '80s Slayer, Slaughter Lord, Van Drunen-era Pestilence, and Voivod's early work, but tweak it with a more technical aspect ala Sindrome, Sadus, and Obliveon, etc. It's a classic-yet-fresh blend between influences and authentic ideas, instead of mere copycat-ism or rote rehashing of older, better ideas. Altogether, including a reverential cover of Infernal Majesty's "Overlord," DEATHWARDS' opening salvo is as furious as it is catchy, iron-clad in its approach yet bespeaking more development to come.

And Towards Death is but the start: already, DEATHWARDS are preparing new material for their imminent debut album, also to be released by INVICTUS. Prepare to go Towards Death!
