Cruciamentum: Paradise Envenomed

November 8, 2017

Coming off of their massive debut full length Charnel Passages, Cruciamentum is back with Paradise Envenomed. This brand new release is a two track EP that includes the title track as well as a cover of Absu’s Descent To Acheron. After gifting us Charnel Passages, you can’t expect anything less than stellar death metal from these morgue suppliers and with their new track Paradise Envenomed that is exactly what you get.

This new six and a half minute track provides you with more of what you have come to know, love and expect from Cruciamentum. This track is calculated, well constructed and ultimately skull grinding. Right off the bat Cruciamentum greet you with blasting drums that are paired with blood thirsty riffs ready to chomp down on your flesh at any given moment. Cutting through the dense wall of death are the gritty gnashing vocals that switch between virulent gutturals and hair raising screams. Paradise Envenomed is a blasphemous, blasting and life threatening track that chips away at your skull from the very first note on. The combination of doom and death metal here creates a devilish, end of times sound that fills you with a sense of dread and foreboding death. This is a dark and twisting track that grabs you immediately keeping you captive until the onslaught has finally concluded. Paradise Envenomed is a monster of a song, one that is well executed and crafted only to provide you with some of the finest death metal.

Paradise Envenomed is a nice follow up to Charnel Passages and provides you with a small taste of what is hopefully more to come. Before you know it, you are reaching for the play button again and again. Paradise Envenomed is an addicting track, one that you don’t mind listening to over and over again. It is a solid, well rounded and damning track that catches your attention immediately and keeps you coming back for more death metal punishment.

You can find Paradise Envenomed on the Profound Lore Records Bandcamp!


The King Is Blind: We Are The Parasite, We Are The Cancer

October 25, 2017


Forming in 2013, The King Is Blind has been consistently putting out content nearly year after year.  After a demo in 2013 and 2014, they released an EP titled The Deficiencies of Man only to follow that up with their debut full length Our Father in 2016. Now more than a year later, The King Is Blind has released their sophomore full length We Are The Parasite, We Are The Cancer. With such a harsh title, one can expect that the music will be exactly the same, harsh, cruel and punishing and that is exactly what you get within this brand new nine track release.

We Are The Parasite, We Are The Cancer is a grim and unrelenting death metal release that employs the use of thrash and even some elements of doom to create an even more chaotic and spine bending sound. The King Is Blind shoots right out of the gate right after the lead vocalist whispers to you that we are in fact the parasite and the cancer. From here on in The King Is Blind doesn’t look back as they lay waste to all parasites and useless vermin. From track to track you are sure to get an ear full of shredding and uncompromising death metal that does exactly what it should do, and that is smash your face until you are barely recognizable.

There aren’t too many “relaxing” moments on this record as The King Is Blind blasts and chips away at your skull only to expose your rotted brain. From track one until track nine you are provided with violent, grim and gritty metal that you are sure to revel in and bang your head to. We Are The Parasite, We Are The Cancer is an undeniably infectious release that gets right under your skin and makes a home there for some time to come. We Are The Parasite, We Are The Cancer as a whole is an entirely entertaining release that has all of the capability to make you lose it and thrash about like the pure maniac that you truly are.

Through flesh ripping riffs, blasting drums, ever prominent bass lines and rabid vocals, The King Is Blind gifts you one barbaric and unfiltered listen. We Are The Parasite, We Are The Cancer is a tightly knit and well performed record through and through. This release doesn’t leave you feeling as though there should be more to it as The King Is Blind packs so much in to this record that you leave the listen feeling satisfied as to what you just listened to.

We Are The Parasite, We Are The Cancer is a complete barn-and cross-burning record that is unrelenting and unwavering. Each track is just as solid as the one that came before it ultimately providing you with an entirely entertaining and blood boiling listen.

We Are The Parasite, We Are The Cancer is out now!
