Inspired by death metal greats but aiming to surpass them and annihilate and dismember anyone that gets in their path is Boia. These monsters are loud, abrasive, caustic, blood curdling and aim to spread as much death and destruction as possible, so it seems. Chivalry of Death is the title of their very first recording and within this release you are subject to five tracks that total just about twelve whole minutes. Don’t pay too much attention to the run time though as Boia provides you with enough stagnant and stale death within those twelve minutes to last you an entire full length. Chivalry of Death is a raw, pummeling and eviscerating release that snaps your head back right from the get go never to relent until your limbs have been severed from your body.
Boia doesn’t give you too much time at all to get acquainted with their horrifying brand of death metal as they storm out of your speakers with the intent to maim and kill. After their ominous intro-and the signal of your death-Call of the Necromatter all bets are off as Boia blasts and chips away at your skull exposing your rotted and fetid brain. From the second track on you are treated to a deadly sonic assault that curdles your blood and drains the life from your eyes. Each track on this effort is a raw and unrelenting beast and they only seem to be out for blood and chaos.
Chivalry of Death is a blitzkrieg of a release as it hits you swiftly but just continues to beat you over the head with frenzied riffs, blood thirsty vocals and relentlessly blasting drums. Before you know it the entire release is over and you are reaching for the play button again and again for more and more torment and mayhem. As quick as this release is it is packed to the bursting point with solid, well constructed and performed death metal that you can’t get enough of. Chivalry of Death is an effort that you don’t mind listening to numerous times and re-snapping your neck to.
Boia takes what their death metal forefathers did so well and amplifies it to create something that is loud, shocking, accosting and all around venomous and purely deadly. For their very first recording this is a solid one and keeps you wanting more and more at the end of it all.
Chivalry of Death will be released December 18, 2017 through Caligari Records.
