Barreling out of Chile with murderous intent is Soulrot and in a short time they will be releasing their debut full length Nameless Hideous Manifestations. After releasing a demo in 2014 and an EP in 2016, this full length has appeared out of the fetid crypts to bless us with ten songs of bulldozing and flesh ripping death metal. Soulrot bleeds old-school death metal it seems as their sound comes straight from the nineties just to punish us twenty years later.
Nameless Hideous Manifestations is a malevolent, malignant and head crushing behemoth of death and it certainly has the kill now ask questions later mentality. Right after the twenty second intro Soulrot gets right into the rotted meat of the record supplying you with droves of gut ripping and entrail spilling death metal. Nameless Hideous Manifestations is a heavy and fetid slab of death and even when you hold the record in your hands you can get a whiff of putrefied death.
This entire record is as brutal as they come and it does its very best to rip you to shreds and stick your head on a pike somewhere. Not only is it brutal though, but Soulrot has a certain sound about them that makes each song sound just so fucking sinister and twisted. Each song is just as gnarled and bloody as the last and before you know it, you yourself are just as gnarled and bloodied. Nameless Hideous Manifestations is a sickening record that aims right for your throat right out of the gate and doesn’t stop until it has been slashed.
Each aspect of this record from the musicianship, to the demonic vocals to the raw production is entirely on point. With each element sewn together you get a chaotic and deadly listen that gets your head banging with ease until you break your neck. This release is death metal through and through with no fluff or filler-save for the intro-at all. You get ten straight tracks of demonic, blood letting and face melting death metal.
Nameless Hideous Manifestations is a solid record to say the least and for it being their debut full length it couldn’t get any more solid. Each track is great and so is the entire record of course. There is no way that I could imagine a huge death metal fan or a death metal fan in general being disappointed in this record. Keep your eyes wide open for Soulrot and their record Nameless Hideous Manifestations.
This release will be out through Memento Mori April 24, 2017.
