Bestial, raw, unholy, barbaric are all words that just might be understatements when speaking of Eggs of Gomorrh. Rot Prophet is the name of their blasphemous debut and this record sports seven songs of purely disgusting and filthy metal. Rot Prophet was originally released as a demo in 2011 and now in 2016 with new songs Rot Prophet has emerged from its musty tomb to terrorize and steal the souls of the innocent. This release is a sickening display of barbaric blackened death metal as this album rips your life from you one excruciating minute at a time.
There isn’t too much that you can do to prepare yourself for this cacophony of destruction and Eggs of Gomorrh doesn’t give you any time to prepare either. These heathens rip you to shreds right from the get go and feel zero remorse and if you are looking for some reprieve from the violence that fills this record, you won’t get any. There isn’t any filler in this record which means that you get pummeled and steamrolled into the ground by sickening blackened death metal. From one minute to the next you get attacked from all sides by bestial and soul absorbing metal and there isn’t anywhere that you can hide.
This is an aural and sonic assault that leaves you feeling as though you got mauled by a bear. With a barbaric style of play, gut ripping riffs, heavy head caving bass lines, spastic and harsh drumming and utterly sinister vocals, Rot Prophet sucks you into a tornado of blackened death. Rot Prophet doesn’t leave you any room to breathe either as Eggs of Gomorrh jump from one song to the next almost immediately. Rot Prophet is a loud ear drum bursting listen that ultimately pulls your skin right off of your flesh and tears your flesh from bone.
Rot Prophet is an incredibly grim, tumultuous, sinister and gnarled piece of metal, and even as chaotic as it is it gets you headbanging and snapping your neck right off the bat. This release is a damning, deafening and soul battering listen that can and will rip your head right off your shoulders and throw you in the forest without blinking an eye. Eggs of Gomorrh have created a record that is wholly volatile and addictive as one listen ends you press play and listen again. Rot Prophet is filled with hate, grime, and nothing but disgust for humans and those elements only add to what already made for a great listen.
This is one heavy debut that sticks with you long after you are done listening. Rot Prophet is a head caving album that is sure to please the mangled ear drums of war metal fans, black metal fans and death metal fans alike as this is one fuck of a destructive and good listen.
Rot Prophet will be out on November 4, 2016 through Vault of Dried Bones.
