Creating a wholly dark, twisted and malevolent sound is Blooming Carrions and their debut tape is titled Sparkling Rotten Dreams. This tape is split up into three tracks, each of them just as vile and devoid of light as the others. Through these three tracks you are gifted with some rotting and fetid death metal for you to destroy your brain to. Blooming Carrions doesn’t waste any time getting you adjusted to their brand of hellish death metal as they shoot right out of hell with Crystalized Disembowelment. The drums kick in immediately to start this track and sooner rather than later everything else follows. Buzz saw riffs rip your flesh as the drums cascade down upon you like sledgehammers and the vocals ooze up from the metallic death to present you with even more ghoulish and gruesome noise.
The fun doesn’t stop there however, as Blooming Carrions carries on supplying you with heaps upon heaps of nothing but death. Before even playing this tape you get a tepid whiff of decomposing cadavers and after you press play you feel as though you are right in the middle of a pile of rotted cadavers. Sparkling Rotten Dreams seems to be fueled by nightmares and the ever quickening darkness to provide you with a terrorizing and flesh crawling listen. Each of the three tracks that are present on this release are brutalizing, bestial and completely raw presenting you with nothing but a darkened vortex of shredded flesh and stagnant blood.
Once Blooming Carrions begins they don’t stop as they roll out track after track of lobotomizing death. Sparkling Rotten Dreams is a decapitating listen in just three tracks. Now, three songs doesn’t seem like a lot, but the run times of each track is pretty substantial for death metal providing you with a nice and long and torturous listen. More than just being vile though, Sparkling Rotten Dreams does a great job of getting you involved early as it has you head banging non stop from the first note until the final one has been played. Each track is constructed well creating three blood thirsty tracks for you to enjoy and revel in all of their disgusting glory.
Overall, Sparkling Rotten Dreams is a great listen as it keeps you coming back for more and makes you want even more. This demo seems like a sign of even more malignant and malevolent tunes to come, but for now, Sparkling Rotten Dreams is what Blooming Carrions has put forth, and it is an overall great tape.
Sparkling Rotten Dreams will be out August 4, 2017 through Iron Bonehead Productions.
