EP (Blood Harvest Productions, September 13th 2013)
The platter opens with a bang with its shorter song “An Agonic Death”, that consists of almost 2 minutes full of a very simple death metal (also because there isn’t a guitar solo here) that is so furious to go through “ignorant” blast – beats without pity. But the very surprising thing comes from the frightful vomits and screams of the singer, he seems to be a beast and, in addition, he is supported by some reverb that makes the music in a more atmospheric way. His particular voice is very close to the bestial black/death metal standards, but you can hear this influence also as regard the music (as you will see soon).
The following one is the titletrack, that is the more structured and various song of the entire EP. Rhytmically, here the band ranges from anguishing doom tempos to crustlike tupa – tupas in typical Swedish style, not forgetting, as obvious, the blast – beats, emerging after a while thanks to an interesting crescendo structure. The riffing combines the Swedish approach with hysterical moments close to the
style, showing, finally, some good technical skills. Alas, the guitars are very crazy and disturbing during the doom passages. And still, there is also a very putrid solo. This song lasts 4 minutes and a half, and it sounds incredible since the premises of the opening track (that, anyway, is considered as an intro by the band). US
