aid to be the best selling act on Diehard Records from Denmark in the 90’s, Konkhra definitely had a huge potential to become the next “big thing” to come out of the death metal underground after Sepultura and Entombed. Basically nothing short of being a supergroup, this now American-Danish quartet created quite a stir in the underground press with their previous album titled “Spit or Swallow” (up for re-issue later in 2018). At that time their sound could be defined as “death ’n’ roll” which was popular
in Europe by the end of the 90’s. However, with the addition of ex-Machine Head drummer Chris Kontos and an omnipresent James Murphy, Konkhra had definitely moved in a more modern metal direction best defined by the drummer’s ex-band’s first album. Though much heavier and without lame attempts at becoming a new metal sensation, “Weed Out The Weak” could have been the breakthrough the band deserved. “Weed Out The Weak” was not going to be another typical Scandinavian death metal assault, that smashes you against the wall five seconds after you put the album on. Yet all the elements that we came to expect from the bands from this particular region are present: dynamic song writing, well-delivered and put together songs, catchy sound.
