With one of the most sickening releases to come out this year, slam veterans Kraanium present ten tracks of disgust, gore and pure putridity within Slamchosis. These gore fiends have been burying bodies for nearly two decades now and with the addition of Slamchosis to their already brutalizing discography, they certainly aren’t aiming to stop any time soon. Slamchosis is exactly what you would come to expect from Kraanium. It is disgusting, perverse, malevolent, violent and riddled with enough gore and putrescence to make anyone vomit. From beginning to end, Slamchosis hammers away, chipping off pieces of your skull to expose your brain and slowly dragging your entrails from your body.
It doesn’t take Kraanium long before getting you acquainted with their sickening sound as Kraanium sets in nearly immediately. The first track Bound To Kill begins with an audio clip of a man speaking about how it isn’t easy butchering people before the track really sets in. This skin blistering and flesh peeling opening track sets the tone for the rest of the record as each of the nine tracks that follow are just as horrifying and gruesome. Bound To Kill just sets the knife blade against your throat, ever sawing back and forth until your blood spills through while the remaining nine tracks eviscerate and decimate your corpse the rest of the way. Slamchosis is vicious and relentless as each track rolls in to the next never giving you a moment of reprieve before the next slaughtering begins.
Slamchosis is suffocating as Kraanium relentlessly rolls from track to putrid track shoveling droves of fetid remains and stagnant entrails upon you. This release rips and tears through your flesh with ease, ever taking you apart with savage riffs coupled with machine gun drumming and blood soaked demonic growls. Among all of that, the slams are what this album is about-other than the gore of course-and they hit incredibly hard. The slams that Kraanium work in to each track are blunt force and skull caving and once they hit you won’t be able to recover.
This is an impressive bowel bursting offering from Kraanium and it might just be one of their best if not their best. Each track is a cohesive gore filled romp through the unfortunate remains of their victims, and it couldn’t be any heavier or more entertaining than it is. Through and through, this sickening record is a well sewn together offering that provides you with ten tracks of pure putrescence and putridity for your guttural entertainment, and man does it entertain and cave some skulls in the process. If you are looking for something with raw bludgeoning power, you can’t go wrong here with Slamchosis.
Slamchosis will be released October 26, 2018 through Comatose Music.
