There’s nothing quite like feeling your brain squeeze through your ear holes, and Rotting Repugnancy does their best to make you feel that. Harbringers of the Last Judgement makes you feel as though you have been put through a meat grinder, minced up even more and fed to rabid wolves. Rotting Repugnancy’s new release is a powerful death metal onslaught to say the least, and with eight songs they brutalize you and dig you a shallow grave in which will be your final resting place.
There are plenty of things that stick out with this record, but one thing that really stuck out was the fact that it is terrifyingly brutal and yet it isn’t over done at all. Harbringers of the Last Judgement is gore filled, but it isn’t obscene and if it was it would ruin the record. The fact that Harbringers of the Last Judgement is brutalizing but not overly saturated in viscera makes for a better listen and makes the listener focus more on the music than trying to get the last bits of intestine out of their hair.
Through the entirety of this release there are no fillers which means that through eight songs you get tortured and relentlessly victimized by hate fueled death metal. Not only does Harbringers of the Last Judgement have no fillers, but there isn’t any over technicality either. What you get is bestial death metal that doesn’t back down until the marrow from your bones has been claimed.
Harbringers of the Last Judgement is barbaric and not only executes you with death metal but they had a tinge of thrash as well to really instill a whiplash feeling. The combination between old school death metal and thrash metal gives you an apocalyptic atmosphere and you feel as though the world is crumbling around you. Each song is thunderous and played at a pace that is wholly blistering and ear popping.
Filled with skull grinding riffs, powerful drumming, lacerating bass lines and vocals that sound as though the vocalist is drinking the blood of his enemies at the time of recording, Harbringers of the Last Judgement is a force to be reckoned with. This is a behemoth of an album and does more damage than you know, and after you are done listening don’t be shocked if you have some internal bleeding.
Harbringers of the Last Judgement is chaotic and leaves destruction in its wake no matter where it roams. From beginning to end you get a massive surge of gut ripping power and Rotting Repugnancy doesn’t quit until you have been completely decimated.
