Stalwart are a five piece death metal band from the very cold St. Petersburg in Russia. Its stupidly cold there and by the sound of the nine tracks on their latest release Manifest of Ritual the guys in Stalwart are wanting to heat things up a bit.
With nine tracks of extreme doom ridden death metal Stalwart seem to rip up the rule book and put it all back together then. It has everything from the grooves, to the blast beats along with a side order of massive riffs and scary as shit vocals.
These death metal heavy weights have had the pleasure of touring with acts such as Amon Amarth and Vader along many more and have been together since 1999, giving them plenty of time to home their craft. Manifest of Refusal is a non stop rollercoaster of death metal thrills and spills.
If you want something extreme yet classic then Manifest of Refusal by Stalwart should be in your wish list. With superb tracks such as “Last Dawn of the Era” and “Its Just My Choice” set to become niche classics in the death metal scene Stalwart are onto a winner and hopefully bigger and better things. 8.25
