Hacking and slashing their way from Japan is technical brutal death metal outfit Urobilinemia and in just a few days they will be releasing their debut recording titled Wriggling Chrysalis Of Metaphysical Grudge. This release is made up of ten unbelievably gut ripping songs. Even though they are new comers to the death metal arena, this album sounds as though they very well could have been honing their craft for a decade or so. Wriggling Chrysalis Of Metaphysical Grudge isn’t a normal brutal death album. This whole release is filled with mind bending and wholly unique savagery that you end up playing over and over again.
In a clogged up and cluttered genre it takes quite a bit to stand out and make a name for yourself and build up a reputation as one of brutal death metal’s front runners. There has to be something about your music that grabs the attention of others and never seems to let go, and with Wriggling Chrysalis Of Metaphysical Grudge that is what Urobilinemia has done. All throughout this bone jarring record you get quite a bit of variation and never really end up hearing the same thing twice. Each song sounds different than the one that came before it which breaks up any monotony and gives you something different to listen to and digest.
After a melodic and serene intro, Urobilinemia hits you square in the gut until your entrails spill out of your back. As each sickening and brutal hymn passes you can feel your bones crumbling and your brain bubbling inside of your skull. Wriggling Chrysalis Of Metaphysical Grudge is a relentless brutal-death-blood-crazed-juggernaut that tears your head off of your shoulders and revels in all of the blood and horror. As brutal as this release is though, you do get melodious and even progressive moments and elements in each song that give you all of that variation that ultimately gives you a more unique sound.
Wriggling Chrysalis Of Metaphysical Grudge-even with its melodious and progressive elements-is still a grinding and utterly destructive release. Each of the ten songs is played ear drum shredding and skin bubbling fast and sooner or later you won’t have any flesh left on your face after it is torn right the fuck off by these guys. None of the songs reach past three minutes, so the torture that you endure is quick but incredibly painful all at the same time. As one song leads into the next, you feel the life draining from your body and the blood emptying from your veins.
Through each song you get droves upon droves of sharpened and cutting riffs, inhuman drumming, thick bone crushing bass lines and vocals that are just as chaotic as the musicianship is. The musicianship on this record is insane and to match that the vocalist switches between many different styles of vocals such as: pure death metal growls, gutturals, pig squeals and a raspy ear splitting high. When listening to Wriggling Chrysalis Of Metaphysical Grudge you never know what you will be getting next, but what you can be certain of is that no matter what sound you hear next, it’s all entirely deadly.
Urobilinemia stand out among a lot of brutal death bands and with Wriggling Chrysalis Of Metaphysical Grudge they have also made an album that stands out from the crowd as well. What you get with this is a cacophony of destruction and something that is entirely brutalizing, unique, interesting and ultimately one heavy fucking listen.
