Joining forces with Folter Records, Burial Hordes begins a new age of their sickening and twisting brand of blackened death metal. Burial Hordes is on the cusp of releasing their new EP titled Extinction and you can expect more of the same punishing brutality out of these heathens. Extinction is four tracks of blistering metal that does its very best to relinquish you of your very soul and cast you down to live in hell for all of eternity. What you get out of Burial Hordes through this listen is something that is raw and visceral and after a couple of listens you may as well be wishing that you were extinct.
Through Extinction, Burial Hordes provides you with a massive sound that seems to ooze death as soon as you press play. Each of the four songs that are provided for you are buzzing onslaughts that come straight for your jugular and are relentless until it gets slashed and you bleed out. There isn’t anything on this record that will give you any sort of hope that you will make it out of one listen alive. Extinction is dark, sinister, heavy and ultimately poisonous. Pumped full of hatred and a pure disdain for human life, Burial Hordes crafted an EP that is writhing and soaked in pure darkness.
Almost immediately after you push play hell fire spouts from your speakers and scorches anything and everything that it touches. Extinction is a display of unrelenting brutality and molten darkness that doesn’t let you off with a warning but instead it buries you in a shallow grave. One song after another crashes down upon you like sickening waves of shining crimson blood. Burial Hordes does a great job of creating an atmosphere for you that is utterly apocalyptic as there is no light at the end of the tunnel, only darkness that is here to collect your soul.
Extinction is a maelstrom of blazing skin bubbling blackened death. Each of the four songs are fueled by enough hatred, darkness and pure negativity to persuade even the purest of people to bow down to the Dark Lord himself. This EP is a chaotic release that bludgeons you without hesitation and leaves you bloodied and broken. Each of the four songs is riddled with serpentine riffs and acrobatic drumming only to be supplemented by lacerating bass lines and purely demonic vocals. Extinction sounds as though everything was recorded in a studio in hell and all throughout that is the atmosphere that you get.
You get pummeled within an inch of your life and if you’re lucky your life may even get taken. Sickening displays of brutality combine with an atmosphere that is thick with hatred and darkness to create a listen that is life threatening. Extinction is exactly what we have come to know and like about Burial Hordes. You get great musicianship, great production and overall what you get is a great listen that just about takes your head off.
You can expect your ears to bleed on October 10, 2016 when Extinction is unleashed.
