Spreading their sickness and ultimately decimating anyone that just so happens to wander across their path is Corprophemia. Technical brutal death metal is the vein in which these sickos play and Abhorrogenesis is the title of their newest release. Within this new record you get eleven songs that are incredibly unrelenting and don’t stop pulverizing you until you are laying dead in your own cold blood. Abhorrogenesis is a raw and bludgeoning release that attacks you from all sides with just about anything and everything. As soon as you press play you become the victim to utterly devastating brutal death metal and Corprophemia doesn’t pick their boot up off of your throat until the final song concludes, and even then your neck still gets broken.
The only real times that you ever get a brief moment of reprieve is when Corprophemia leads you into a beating with an intro or an outro. Other than those few moments you get pummeled and pulverized by music that is entirely brutalizing and eviscerating. Whatever you do you can’t escape the onslaught as Corprophemia just keeps attacking and rolling one devastating song after another at you.
Abhorrogenesis is a deadly release as it plans on gutting you right from the get go and ultimately does so at the conclusion. Each song on this record is chaotic and pure madness and they all beat against your skull until you don’t have a skull to beat against. Abhorrogenesis is immensely heavy and you eventually succumb to the sheer weight as your bones crack and splinter as each song rolls along.
This album is fairly short so you feel inclined to press play over and over again if you can continue withstanding the beatings that you get every time you listen. Since this album is shorter it does warrant more listens so you can soak it all up and pick up on certain elements that you may have missed before. Even though each of the eleven songs are as short as they are, Corprophemia still makes you feel as though you have gone a few rounds in the death metal ring and have you leaving bloodied and bruised.
Abhorrogenesis is riddled with furious and lacerating riffs only to be coupled with skin shredding solos, skull shattering drumming, vein bursting bass lines and throat shredding vocals that are utterly demonic. This record is pure technical chaos and it provides you with minutes upon minutes of brain smashing goodness. Abhorrorgenesis is a blitzkrieg as it attacks you quick and fierce leaving no trace that you walked this earth.
This record is just about as technical as it can get as it leaves your head spinning. However, as brutal and technical as it is you get stuck on it and keep it on repeat for quite some time headbanging until you are left with no more brain cells. Abhorrogenesis is a solid release that packs an incredible punch and if you are looking for something fresh and bludgeoning, look no further than Corprophemia.
