I always look for those bands that are different. So many bands can do the same thing as others and get ahead that way. Subservience has taken influences from old school metal and newer extreme metal and tied it all together in a masterful way. Every one of their songs absolutely tears. Highly recommend this to any metalhead.
A pretty brutal technical deathmetal band. That alone is pretty much worn out and washed up. But these british dudes have some badass oldschool riffs, what makes this band so interresting. I want more, great job guys :)

"...‘Upheaval’ isn’t just hard, fast and generally uncompromising – it’s positively staggering. As you’d expect, it’s top-notch in terms of production values and overall sound, but also in the complexity and quality of the material." - RealGoneRocks.com
"There is nothing negative to say about this E.P whatsoever. The artwork is just as compelling as the heavy grooves contained within it. The production is finely polished to give the listener 100% quality and the tracks themselves offer resounding brutal death metal played at its utmost best!" 10/10 - Blackenedhorde.com
“I recommend this E.P wholeheartedly to every death metal fan that reaches the far flung corners of the globe. Brawling with overflowing madness it constantly feeds the emotions with equal persuasion that ignites vehemently with passion and energy!” 5/5 - Brutalism.com
"A new member can really have an impact on a band, especially when it's the vocalist, and that's what Dan Lofthouse appears to have done for Subservience on their latest self-released EP. Having joined this year, his style is in keeping with their groove-induced death metal, as it adds a further sense of despair to these four tracks. That's not to take anything away from the rest of the British band, who form some absorbing extremity that's indebted to Carcass, Bolt Thrower and all the usuals. There are enough unique segments for this to be more than a tribute work, though." 3.5/5 - Zero Tolerance Magazine
"...Subservience have proven they are a force to be reckoned with... guaranteed to please those with an insatiable hunger
for death and blackened metal that resides on the boundaries of slightly diverse and melodic without sacrificing brutality." Drunk in a Graveyard...more
This is not original nor is it innovative, but just like Nordjevel has taken the Norwegian second-wave black metal template and added more technicality, speed, and production value, Hyperion has improved upon Dissection’s melodic black metal formula in virtually every way. There is plenty of better black (and death) metal coming out of Sweden these days, but Seraphical Euphony is very impressive, goddamned beautiful, and an absolutely invigorating tour de force, worthy of your time and respect.
