viralstampede

Seething underneath the undulating darkness that is black metal are touches of death metal throughout Loputon Suo’s new offering Portti uuteen. Through four tracks you are greeted with sinister tones, darkened atmospheres and a pure blistering listen that is sure to creep your mind back in to the darkest of recesses. After the ominous and atmospheric intro Polku, Loputon Suo set you off properly through darkened corridors with Ääni Jään Alta, a proper rampaging opener that sets you up for the sonic torment that is to come. Ääni Jään Alta much like the two tracks that follow it is a wonderful mix of black and death metal, providing you with a proper atmospheric quality as well as a pure neck twisting sound.

The four tracks that are harbored within Portii uuteen are dark and sinister. They forever twist and tighten their grip around your neck, seeping their venom into your mind as you listen over and over again. Within this release, Loputon Suo find the right balance through four tracks with their assault of blackened death metal. They combine both genres together well to create an overall unholy and flesh searing sound that is hard to forget.

As one track fades in to the never ending darkness of the abyss, another begins to rain its malevolent intent down upon you. Through and through, Loputon Suo has created something here that is wholly devilish and poisonous. Each track is a memorable offering that provides you with undulating bass lines, forever charging drums, scythe like riffs and vocals that occasionally transition between unearthly growls and banshee like screeches. The three full tracks that follow the intro Polku are malevolent as they gift you with bleak atmospheres and completely ripping blackened metal.

Portti uuteen impresses with only four tracks as it is a cohesive and well put together effort that fully displays what Loputon Suo is capable of. This is a very solid release overall that is sure to please the ears of many.

Combining the likes of neck twisting speed metal and blasphemous black metal, Chaoshorde provide you with four darkened and purely skin blistering tracks within their debut EP Hordes  Arising. These speed worshiping maniacs play their brand of scalp peeling metal in the collapsed vein of the old, keeping the overall sound bleedingly raw and unkempt. This four track blitzkrieg of terrorizing metal is just that as from beginning to end Chaoshorde provide you with nothing but face melting and spine twisting metal. You don’t get an intro, you don’t get any fluff or filler, what you get is pure, unfiltered blasphemous blackened speed metal to crank to eleven.

From the drop of the first note, Hordes Arising is exactly what is described above. This release is hellish non-stop scorching metal that doesn’t stop the pummeling until your skin has been peeled back from your flesh. Each track is a ripping and damning offering that supplies you with a hellish amount of blasting drumming and scythe like riffs that are only to be coupled with rumbling bass lines all throughout. Hordes Arising induces whiplash nearly immediately as it sets off like a bat straight out of hell never to stop its twisting mayhem until the final bloodied note has rang through.

This is pure intensity captured within only four tracks. Right from the get go you get hit right between the eyes with a ceaseless onslaught pummeling you straight in to the afterlife. You get no time to breathe really as one track rolls almost immediately in to the next creating a damning vortex of shredding metal that just cannot be denied. Hordes Arising is a gritty and intense release, one that terrorizes you from front to back never to release you from its steely clutches.

Hordes Arising is a solid debut outing as it supplies you with four straight excellently crafted tracks that get your brain bashing against your skull in no time. Each track is a face melting ode to the blackened speed metal bands of old and yet Chaoshorde makes it their own.

Hailing from Athens, Greece is Eriphion and just unleashed is their debut EP Hossana. This four track EP isn’t something that you would expect a debut anything to sound like as it is well rounded, well constructed, performed and much more. Through four tracks you are greeted with nothing but top notch black metal that is sure to sink your soul into a bitter abyss. From beginning to end, Eriphion provides you with track after track of atmospheric light stealing black metal for your darkened enjoyment. I certainly was surprised by what Eriphion has to offer within Hossana as it is certainly a blackened gem of a release.

Eriphion doesn’t wait long before getting you acquainted with their unholy sound as they pour the darkness on thick beginning with the title track. Eriphion immediately greets you with slicing riffs and ever tumultuous drumming before spectral vocals pour in through your speakers haunting your mind. The opening track is a good taste of what is to come and what Eriphion has to offer, and what they have to offer is even more superb atmospheric devilish tunes. From the opener onward, Eriphion shift wraith like from track to track presenting you with a blackened assault through and through.

Each of the four tracks that are presented here are not just pure blackened sonic assaults as each track is riddled with plenty of atmosphere. These tracks have a great ability to steal away your mind and submerge it in the bitter darkness in which Eriphion provides. Hossana is steeped in malevolence and damnation and through the ambiance that is sewn in to each track that is very palpable. As sinister and harrowing as each track is, they are just as captivating and mesmerizing in their own twisted way.

Through and through, Hossana is an excellent EP. This release sounds as though Eriphion are seasoned veterans of the genre as this is a well constructed and highly intoxicating release.

In all of their dismal death glory, Destroyer Attack come storming out of the gates of hell with Solve Et Coagula. This twelve track release is a sinister skin peeling offering that rampages forth from one track to the next with complete disdain and disregard for life. From beginning to end, Solve Et Coagula is a ripping and barbaric release that never gives you time to breathe as it ushers forth blistering punishment from the very first second onward. Upon pressing play you become entrapped in a cyclone of blackened torment never to be released until the final gnarled note has rang out.

The first twisted track to grace your scarred ears is Communion of the Black Pest, a track that punches you in the mouth right from the get go never to relent until your teeth have successfully hit the floor. Communion of the Black Pest rips you open with jagged riffs and ever tumultuous drumming that ultimately is backed by savage blood curdling vocals that seem as though they are ringing through the bowels of hell. The remaining eleven tracks are much the same. The barbarity doesn’t stop with the first track as Destroyer Attack bulldozes from track to track supplying you with sickening tune after sickening tune.

Each of these tracks are bleedingly raw and savage offerings to the dark lord as they rip and tear into your flesh. Solve Et Coagula is a ceaseless bombardment of blackened death. Each of these tracks are relatively short, but even so they pack more than an explosive punch. Through twelve tracks you are treated to incredibly sinister light stealing metal. This is an abrasive offering, one that attacks without warning and is relentless until you are lying face down lifeless.

Through and through, Solve Et Coagula is a menacing and monstrous offering from beginning to end. There is no fluff, no filler and nothing here that will compromise the otherwise savage and blood letting sound. This is an engaging and chaotic record, one that is steeped in malevolent and malignant darkness that feeds you droves of  hellish metal that is not to be taken lightly. This mashing of death and black metal is fearsome and should not be over looked.

Solve Et Coagula will be released July 13, 2018 through Morbid Skulls Records.
