Rising from mounds of septic flesh and mutilated cadavers is In Obscurity Revealed and with them they brought a bleeding mass of death metal. The Spell of the Seeker is a four track demo that was released earlier this year and will be getting a reissue later this month. The Spell of the Seeker sounds as though it should be something of a doom or black metal release, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. What you get with this demo are four songs of purely brutalizing death metal.
In Obscurity Revealed starts fast out of the gate and never lets up for a single moment. For eleven straight minutes you get bombarded with skull grinding and entirely unapologetic death metal. This band is a steamroller of death and squashes you like a puny bug if you so choose to stand in its way.
The death metal onslaught is one that is raw and pure and sounds as though it should be dated back in the nineties. The mission for this brutalizing band though isn’t to play in the strain of old school death metal though. Their mission is to slay and rip organs from anyone and everyone that they come across.
From head to toe this demo is covered in a thick stench of death and drenched in the vile blood of their enemies. The Spell of the Seeker is a nail through the brain and an ax through the heart. Once these monsters are done with you, only bone and trace amounts of crimson will be found.
Their attack consists of pummeling and ripping riffs, destructive drum work, thick bass lines and a sickening vocal performance. These death dealers are exactly that, leaving a trail of bodies wherever they roam. If you are looking for something that is head caving and purely raw and visceral this should suit you well.
The reissue on tape comes out March 4, 2016 through Caverna Abismal Records!
