German death metal act Cytotoxin return after a five year absence with their third full-length offering Gammageddon. Captured in early-2016 at Kohlekeller Studios, Gammageddon centers itself on the city of Pripyat. Named after the nearby Pripyat River, Pripyat was founded on February 1970 as the ninth nuclear city – a type of closed city – in the Soviet Union, to serve the nearby Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. It was officially proclaimed a city in 1979, and had grown to a population of nearly 50,000 by the time it was evacuated the day after the Chernobyl disaster. The city is now a ghost town. Gammageddon serves as a soundtrack to the horrors leading to the evacuation with its unadulterated technical extremity. At a 40-minute run time, even the deepest, densest bunkers won't protect you from this massive overindulgence of radioactive brutality.
