There are a lot of bands that are evil and sound like they came straight from hell, but not all of those bands have the potential to instill fear into Jesus and that is what Kratornas has the ability to do. The cover that you see above is for their new song Dead Burning Christ, however Devoured By Damnation is the name of their new blasphemous release and this ten track record is just enough to make the blood boil of Christ himself. Each song sounds as though evil incarnate has been pumped into them and when played they unleash a hellish fury.
With their brand of chaotic black metal combined with some grindcore, Kratornas aim to rip the faces off of anyone who comes within earshot. There is zero time to be prepared before you listen and since there aren’t any fillers in this record to give you a breather you end up suffocating under the volatile black metal. Kratornas rolls song after song with no space in between so you go from one pummeling song to the next and after a listen you look like you have been fed into a meat processor. Devoured By Damnation is a venomous and wholly violent neck twisting album that mutilates you and your soul beyond recognition.
Devoured By Damnation is complete chaos from the very second that the first note hits your shredded ear drums. What you get pouring out of your speakers is a complete barrage of blackened fury that pummels you straight into your cold dark grave. Devoured By Damnation is entirely unforgiving and doesn’t think twice before beating you into submission. Each track is blasphemous enough to make anyone turn in their grave especially Jesus, and if he had any plans of coming back and heard this record he would crawl back into his cave.
With lacerating riffs being coupled by spastic and bone shattering drumming you have no choice but to headbang until your skull cracks. Not only is the musicianship itself sinister but the vocals that force themselves through the wall of soul draining metal are just as potent and venomous. To make this record completely damning and visceral is the raw production. With everything combined Kratornas has created something with this record that is unbelievably sinister. This heaven corrupting album as chaotic and damning as it is is also intoxicating and hard to shake as one listen just doesn’t cut it.
Devoured By Damnation is a disgusting, filthy and damning record that would make any highly religious person jump off of the nearest bridge. With all hyperbole aside, Devoured By Damnation is a great listen that is just as violent as it is memorable and intoxicating.
