Anything blasphemous, sinister and utterly evil that you can think of, that is what Pathetic Divine sounds like. With this new release Mercyless is back to slay and cull as many people as they possibly can. Pathetic Divinity is ten songs of pure devastating death metal that is out for blood. Mixing old-school death metal with more modern death metal you get a sound that is incredibly heavy and damning. Each song is just as devastating and blood thirsty as the last and each song gives you your fair share of whiplash as well since you begin headbanging from note one.
After a brief intro you get uncompromising death metal in its purest most raw form. Every song is a blitzkrieg of metal as you get attacked from all directions all at one time. As soon as one song ends another picks up right where it left off and bashes you within inches of your life only for Pathetic Divinity to repeat and repeat until you are no more.
Pathetic Divinity is thunderous and incredibly barbaric and it won’t rest until everyone’s head is on a stake. This release rolls on with utter disdain and disgust for human life and yet when it’s all over you can’t help but to press play again and be beaten all over again. Mercyless has created an album that is terrifying as it sounds as though it will reach out of your speakers and slash your neck right where you sit.
As the blood curdling sounds pour from your speakers you still can’t help but to headbang until you decapitate yourself. Pathetic Divinity is an album that needs to be played as loud as your speakers will allow. Right from the get go this is album gets you headbanging and thrashing about until you end up burning your city and or heaven to the ground and straight to hell.
Throughout this release you will find shredding riffs alongside skin peeling solos, brain bruising bass lines and down hill drumming. Forcing themselves through the wall of death metal noise are the vocals that venom injected and entirely gruesome. Pathetic Divinity is a barbaric album to say the least as it in morbid, skull grinding heavy and packed with incredible amounts of neck snapping death metal.
Pathetic Divinity has a sound to it that would make Jesus shutter and make the angels burn. With their third album, Mercyless hits the nail right on the head as it hits all cylinders and hits on all of the right death metal buttons. There isn’t anything to dislike about this record as it supplies you everything you want in a death metal record. This is an intoxicating listen as just one listen isn’t nearly enough as it warrants many rotations. “Pathetic Divinity” is a hellish record that definitely should be on the top of every death metal head’s list.
