Roel de Haan : ‘Universal Hate Speech’ is the debut mini cd by the Polish act Terrestrial Hospice and it offers a very intense and brutal nineteen minutes of black metal annihilation. With a raw and brutal sound Terrestrial Hospice comes bursting in at breakneck speed with the ferocious opener ‘Celebrate (The Last Days of Sunshine)’ as a rawer version of Mayhem’s ‘Whore’ (with eerily close vocal line as well). Fast aggression or thrashy a la Darkthrone: Terrestrial Hospice are clearly confident in many black metal approaches and do not care for trends or emotions other than hatred. It is the strong and genuine execution that makes ‘Universal Hate Speech’ worthwhile, because in all honesty: there is nothing new here on display. However, fans of Mayhem, Anaal Nathrakh and Marduk sure have another name to look out for.
