Bleak, unfiltered and terrifying are only a few words that can be used to describe Escarnium. Their newest offering Interitus is all of those words and then some as Escarnium unleashes yet another head splitting offering to the masses. With this release Escarnium push you deeper and deeper into the abysmal darkness as they push the envelope for death metal. Interitus is undeniably heavy and undeniably savage and you will be lucky to escape with your head still attached to your body after just one listen. Interitus is ten full tracks of pure unfiltered death metal that does their best to gut you like a pig.
Right after a brief intro you get thrown into the cavernous pit of hellish death metal that Escarnium has become well known for. All throughout this record Escarnium lays the hammer down and doesn’t let up once in their unrelenting and savage attack. Throughout Interitus you get layers and layers of death stacked wall to wall and ceiling to ceiling as entrails and assorted viscera spew from this disc. Escarnium has an unmistakable sound that instills the fear of death into you and makes you feel as though a murderous psychotic is standing right behind you ready to take your limbs off at any given moment.
From cover to cover Escarnium ladles their sickening brand of death metal out by the truck load and bury you in the maggot infested corpses that they so far have collected. This is a rotting release of pure brutality that is out for blood and will stop at nothing to get it. The sound that Escarnium provides for you is massive and one that emulates death right down to the last note. As soon as you press play you can’t escape the monstrous wall of death and cadavers that rain down upon you. Before listening you need to prepare yourself for a terrifying and blood curdling onslaught that doesn’t quit until the final note stops ringing.
With this release, Escarnium push the envelope of darkness and push themselves as well as you straight into a pit of pure and utter bloody destruction. Interitus has a mission, and that is to wipe everything straight off the face of the map and cause as much mayhem and destruction as possible. Escarnium comes at you from every angle possible and slices and slashes your ear drums with savage riffs only to be coupled with ear drum hacking bass lines, downhill drumming and roaring vocals that sound as though they were recorded in that cavernous pit in which Escarnium came from.
Interitus is pure no holds barred and down right skull grinding death metal at its finest. When you press play you enter an album that is dark, sinister and savage and what Escarnium gives you with this record is an album that will be a death metal classic in time.
Interitus will be out through Redefining Darkness and Testimony Records on October 14, 2016.
