Rising from bloodied coffins in 2011, Sepolcro had released a demo in 2013 titled Festering Evocation, then in 2016 they released a split titled Horrendous Plasmation before splitting. Two years later-earlier this year-these mutilators reconvened to continue their rampage of sickness and death.
Undead Abyss is the title of their upcoming offering which features three brand new tracks that are grisly and rotten to the core. Sepolcro begin Undead Abyss with the wonderfully titled “Bone Totem”, which begins with an ominous doom centered sound that creeps slowly and ominously through your speakers. Bone Totem is the “slowest” track on this demo as it trudges forth at a slow to mid tempo providing you with an appropriate taste of what is to come, and what is to come is sickening and perverse death in heaping doses.
From Bone Totem on you are greeted with two more lacerating and maiming tracks. Nothing here is filler or fluff as Sepolcro blast forth with murderous and malicious intent. With buzzing riffs, ever pummeling drumming and blood thirsty vocals, Sepolcro offer up nasty and stagnant death in droves. In three tracks Sepolcro provide you with unfiltered, raw and blood drenched death that is intent on severing your spine before things are all said and done. The remaining two tracks after the opener are more uptempo offerings that blast and chip away at your skull from the very beginning never to relent.
As short as Undead Abyss is it surely packs quite a punch. With only three tracks to its name, Undead Abyss offers up sick, twisted and gnarled death that that seems to have it out for anyone that wants to listen. This is a solid demo overall and it will be interesting to see where Sepolcro takes things from here, but for now we are left with three defiling and deadly tracks to snap our collective necks to.
Undead Abyss will be released May 15, 2018
