A culmination of death and disease brewed in a blackened sludge of stagnant blood and torn entrails, Skullcrush offer up four tracks of foul death. Combining the likes of old-school death metal with murky doom passages, Skullcrush provide you with an incredibly raw, punishing and sinister sound that is not to be forgotten. Each of the four tracks that are harbored within this release are skin stripping and flesh gnashing odes to death itself. These bloodied and gut ripping tracks are unrelenting in their bloodletting assault as they climb out of their crypt with a thirst for blood and mutilation right from the get go.
Visions of the Firestorm Eclipse is the embodiment of death and death metal. There is nothing here to compromise the natural blood curdling sound that death metal has to offer. As soon as you press play on this release you are taken back thirty plus years to when death metal reigned supreme. From beginning to end you become entombed in a raw and filthy sound that is riddled with death and disease sending you to your own early grave. With each track being relatively lengthy-the longest being over seven minutes-it gives Skullcrush plenty of time to fully display their impressive death metal prowess.
There isn’t a track within this offering that is filler as what you get are four straight tracks of eviscerating death. Each of the four tracks are a wonderfully crafted onslaught of death that grip you right from the get go never to let you go until you have properly been mutilated and disposed of. Visions of the Firestorm Eclipse is an impressive release as the instrumentation is as grisly and raw as you would hope and the vocals are as undead and skin crawling as you would like. Couple that and more with an incredibly unfiltered and raw sound, you are treated to one hell of a deadly and entertaining listen.
Visions of the Firestorm Eclipse is a murky, drenched in entrails, foreboding and vile release that is sure to turn some heads. With only four tracks Skullcrush impresses and then some as they fully display their gnarled death metal chops.
