In all of their glory and filth, Majestic Mass come storming out of hell cloaked in midnight black to present you with a sound that is so wonderfully filthy and grimy that you cannot possibly deny it. Savage Empire of Death is the name of their new record and it sports seven total tracks of nothing but blackened rock for your sinister and twisted enjoyment. As grimy and filth riddled as this release is, it is just as addicting, catchy and memorable as you will be nodding your head along with each track as you roll along from one listen straight in to the next. Once the intro Triumphos Manifestum recedes back in to the ever bitter darkness, Majestic Mass kicks into high gear filling your gnarled ear drums with ever buzzing riffs, pounding drumming and savage raspy vocals that are not to be forgotten.
Savage Empire of Death is as filthy as you could imagine and sordid as you would want any record to be. From front to back, Majestic Mass put on a display that is beautifully dark and sinister as they roll from one unapologetic track to the next. The raw just crawled up from the crypt sound is a welcome one as it gives Majestic Mass that air of stagnant blackened stench that works so well. Through and through, Savage Empire of Death is a head nodding and soul stealing listen as each track is just as unkempt and devilish as the last. There are no breaks between sordid romps as Majestic Mass keeps on rolling supplying you with droves of blackened noise to sit and lose your soul to.
Not a single track on this record is a weak one as each of the seven within this offering are well performed and executed providing you with an overall well rounded and well formed sound that infects your mind whether you want it to or not. Once you begin listening you cannot escape the devilish magic that Majestic Mass supplies. Savage Empire of Death has a great ability to draw you in and keep you listening over and over again, and before you know it you are continually reaching for that play button. Savage Empire of Death is an infectious and addicting record, one that wriggles its way under your skin to make a nice fleshy home for some time to come.
This release took me by surprise in the best way possible. Not knowing what to expect, Majestic Mass outdid themselves and then some as they supply you with nothing but top notch blackened rock for seven straight tracks. Savage Empire of Death is highly entertaining, highly addictive, highly memorable and certainly not a record that should be skipped out on. In all of its madness and devilry, Savage Empire of Death is a wonderful record, one that surprised the shit out of me and hopefully will do the same for you. Caligari does it yet again with another entirely unique and incredible release.
