Sometimes just by looking at the cover of an album you can tell that what you are about to hear is completely filthy and filled with plenty of grime, and that is what you get with Entrapment’s new release Through Realms Unseen. With this release you get eleven total songs that provide you with ripping, intoxicating and deadly metal. This entire album is cohesive as one song flows to the next giving you no time to come up for air beneath all of the filthy death metal. And out of eleven songs, zero are filler, so you get bombarded from beginning to end with rotting and flesh tearing death metal with no breaks. Good luck making it out alive.
As mentioned, from front cover to back you get pelted with purely sinister and detrimental death metal. Each song is fetid and filled with enough rotting flesh and death to put some serial killers to shame. As the songs roll on you end up getting buried alive under rotted soil and remains and when you press play again the process of live burial begins again. What is unique about these songs is that they are completely punishing and brutalizing yet they are smooth and highly memorable. There isn’t a song on this record that you would want to skip and there isn’t a song on this record that doesn’t get embedded in your brain like a bot fly.
All eleven songs are riddled with diseased and flesh tearing riffs, bone crumbling bass lines, solid acrobatic drumming and vocals that seem to have been resurrected themselves. Entrapment does a great job of making it feel as though the end is near for you by shoveling harsh and blood boiling death metal upon you. As soon as you begin listening you become buried under a wall of deadly noise that is wholly unforgiving and life threatening. And no matter how threatening these songs and this record is, this is a listen that you just can’t forget as well as put down.
Through Realms Unseen is a well crafted album that flows very nicely so it is a cohesive listen instead of sounding as though these are all completely different songs that sound as though they belong to different albums. The song writing, production, musicianship and vocals are all on point which makes this album one hell of a good head caving listen. These death bringers have created an album that gets your headbanging from note and keeps you headbanging until the last note is played. This is a deadly album that grips you from the beginning and doesn’t let you go very easily, and after one listen you feel the need to listen again.
This new release by these heathens is one that all death metal fans should keep their eyes out for. This album is a great listen and deserves to be played as loud as your neighbors will stand for because really everyone needs some death metal in their lives. And with that being said, you just cannot go wrong with an album that is as solid and as well executed as this.
Through Realms Unseen will be out through Pulverised Records November 25, 2016.
