Grisly death steeped in reaping malevolent doom come bursting through your speakers like fetid entrails. For four dominant tracks you are presented with something foul and flesh rotting as Grim Fate truly emerges from their crypt. After forming in 2017, Grim Fate put out a demo that same year titled Decomposition, and now they are on the verge of unleashing their debut EP Emerging From The Crypt. As mentioned, these cadaver hoarders present four brand new tracks within their new EP that are bone cleaving and flesh peeling. Each track is potent and treats you as nothing more than just another body to be thrown in to the fire.
Emerging From The Crypt is a dark and ever malevolent release that ultimately aims to put you in to an early grave. Grim Fate open with Decomposition that brings you in to their bleak world of death with bells that toll signaling your final day. Once the bells stop ringing through your ears, Grim Fate pours on a doom filled dirge that slowly drags on and slowly but surely begins gutting you, preparing you for the rest of the venomous onslaught. Decomposition ultimately picks the pace up around the three minute mark providing you with nothing but scalding marrow draining death. The remaining three tracks follow much of the same formula as Grim Fate guts and quarters you with a combination of pure blood thirsty death metal and wraith like doom to gift you with an unsettling and blood letting sound.
This EP is foul, raw and flesh peeling all the way through. Never once does Grim Fate lay off on their all out brutalizing assault as one track bleeds in to the next never giving you enough time to prepare for the next wave of putrid death. From track to track, Grim Fate bury you underneath droves of dehumanizing death and at the end of it all you become just another corpse added to the growing pile. Emerging From The Crypt with only four tracks to its title is a monster. Once you press play you feel as though death is looming and that is in part due to the deadly life swallowing atmosphere that Grim Fate provides. The overall sound of this EP is that of a reaper culling the weak only to drag them below to a cold, ever darkening abyss.
Emerging From The Crypt is a great EP. The sound is rough, raw and unfiltered through each track and through each of the four tracks you come face to face with really solid doom riddled death metal. This is Grim Fate’s debut and with only four tracks they put forth a great rotted release that is surely able to please the ears of death heads. It will be fun to see where Grim Fate takes it from here as far as releases go, but for now we have this flesh rotting EP to bruise our brains to.
Emerging From The Crypt will be released March 26, 2018 through Chaos Records
