Bludgeoning, skin shredding, flesh melting and utterly destructive are only some of the words that can be used to describe Aenigmata. This release is the newest offering from death metal juggernauts Sin of God and this new record is comprised of nine total songs that drain you of your life and empty your veins of your blood. Aenigmata is a savage and barbaric death metal release that after a listen you end up looking like the unfortunate people you see on the cover art. With this record, Sin of God has created something that is entirely brutalizing and completely detrimental to anyone who listens as you feel as though your face has been sheered off after just one rotation.
Right out of the gate Aenigmata begins your beating and from then on you just end up getting pummeled over and over again until you are barely recognizable. This record comes at you with a great intensity as well as an intent to kill and it won’t be satisfied until its thirst for blood is quenched. Aenigmata is a deadly record that tears you apart limb from limb and flesh from bone until you are no more, and if you think that there may be a break somewhere in this release to catch your breath, you would be mistaken. Right after you press play the onslaught begins and this monstrous album begins tearing your head right off of your shoulders.
Through nine songs Sin of God makes sure that you do not exit the listen with all of you intact. After you complete just one listen you may find that you are missing limbs, and with all of the hyperbole aside this record really does make you feel as though you have been through the wringer a few times. Songs roll on one after another and since there is no filler or no intros to any of the songs-save for the few second intro in the opener-you don’t get a chance to catch your breath. Sin of God plays at mach five speeds all throughout this record and not only that but the sheer brutality of each song has the capability of ripping you clean in half.
Aenigmata is packed with eviscerating riffs and flesh flaying solos along with thunderous bass lines and skull splitting drum work. Just as monstrous as the musicianship are the vocals that are filled with venom and blood thirst themselves. With the tight musicianship and the great songwriting you can’t help but to headbang until you bruise your brain so much that you become a vegetable. Aenigmata is a tight, well produced and well put together album that is ridiculously powerful and bludgeoning and it gets you headbanging right off the bat.
This new offering is a great death metal record that any death metal fan should have on their shelf. You can’t go wrong with Aenigmata as it provides you with everything you could want and ask for in a death metal release.
