Born from a vomiting crypt of death and disease comes Helslave and dragging up from the depths with them is their newest release Divination. Helslave hails from Rome in actuality and take inspiration from their death metal forefathers yet they make the old-school sound their own. They take what their forefathers have done and twist it just a bit to create a nasty, gnarled and scarred sound that aims to take your head clean off from the drop of the first note. Divination is a relentless, raw and blood thirsty record that charges at you knives wielded from the very beginning aiming to stain the streets with your blood.
Helslave introduces you to their new blasphemous record with a little bit of an intro in the opening track Summoning The Eternal Eclipse before really getting you acquainted with their brand of sickening death. Once that very brief-and I do mean very very brief-ominous intro concludes on the opening track, Helslave doesn’t let up for even a second. From then on you become submerged in sickness and hellish death for four straight tracks. Each of the four tracks that are present on this release are damning, sick, blood thirsty and down right nasty providing you with an intense and overall beheading listen.
Each track on this release provides you with excellent musicianship, production and vocals that get your head banging and your neck snapping within seconds. “Divination” is an undeniable record, one that grabs a hold of your throat never to let go until you have concluded your listen. Every song here is powerful and relentless leaving you with a life threatening listen that is oh so enjoyable. Each track is very well crafted and executed gifting you four tracks of utter death and despair to revel in and soak up.
Once you begin listening to this grizzly slab of death you just can’t seem to stop as you press play over and over again until your head falls right off of your shoulders. Divination is rumbling death madness at its finest and Helslave pull no punches on this release what so ever. What you get here is four great deadly tracks that get you headbanging feverishly for its entirety, and once the record is over you feel compelled for more and more punishment.
