Possession/Spite: Passio Christi Part I/ (Beyond The) Witch’s Spell

November 24, 2019
viralstampede

In a sickening summoning of all things damned and wicked, up from the cauldron of hate comes flesh peelers and soul destroyers Possession and Spite. Each playing a twisted brand of black metal, they merge their powers of venomous rage and destruction within this five track EP. Through and through, Passio Christi Part I/(Beyond The) Witch’s Spell is a blasphemous, venomous, potent and entirely life cleaving effort that leaves your soul to be consumed by the reaper once all is said and done. Without reprieve, without solace, Possession and Spite eat the light from the world as darkness collapses around you leaving you in a cold and bitter darkness as each second ticks off the run time.

The first three offerings within this split belong to Possession. Possession begins their half of the split with a two and a half minute haunting reverie before dragging you into their brand of shredding blackened death. Following the intro, Possession hits you with an eight minute blackened opus of destruction and despair. With flesh flaying riffs, ever tumultuous drumming, hellish demonic vocals and an undulating blasphemous atmosphere, Possession creates a sound that is all together piercing and life threatening. Through the three tracks that they provide for you within this split, each one is just as caustic, malevolent and malicious as the last as you are provided with top notch death tinged black metal through and through. Each offering is a summoning of malevolence and wicked spite that shreds through your soul and pierces your life leaving you as nothing more than a soulless husk once all is said and done. With their half of the split, Possession treats you to incredibly potent, venomous and damning metal that consumes and drags you asunder to where light does not reach.

Following in the scorched tracks where Possession leaves off comes Spite’s two tracks to round out the entire EP. Spite much like Possession plays a wicked and bleeding raw brand of black metal that is tinged by gnarled death. The two cuts that Spite provide here for this split are slicing maelstroms of black metal that trap you within their blackened vortex never for you to escape. Devoid of light and packed with malevolence and black magik, Spite treats you to two tracks here that tear straight through you only to lead you to an early grave. Ritualistic and soul cleaving, Spite rolls from one track to the next, conjuring up hymns of black magik and demonic essence. Each of the two tracks that Spite summons here come complete with razor sharp riffs that are supplemented by skull cracking drum work and hellish grit filled vocals that seem to have been summoned from the abyss. Both tracks are possessed, blood boiling rituals of damnation and destruction. Ever unrepentant and unrelenting, Spite ushers forth one track after the next of malice fueled black magik that sets out to consume your life, and once all is said and done, that is exactly how you will feel.

Through and through, this split is a wicked and heavy one that features two top notch bands at the apex of their genre. All five conjurations here are as wicked as the last as you are presented with nothing but five offerings of pure malevolence and darkness. This is a very solid split that features two incredible bands making this an EP that should not be passed up and looked over.

Passio Christi Part I/(Beyond The) Witch’s Spell will be unleashed November 29 through Invictus Productions.

Forte Ruin_EP_COVER.jpg

Three years have passed since Forte Ruin’s initial step in to the melodic death metal echelon. Now, three years later Forte Ruin is back with a five track EP by the title Rebuilding the Machinery. Forte Ruin continues on where they left off three years ago with their self titled EP as they supply you with incredibly catchy, heavy, melodic and of course memorable tunes. Much like other melodic death metal bands, Forte Ruin balance both the heavy and the melodic to provide you with an overall smooth and incredibly palatable listen.

Each of the five offerings within Rebuilding the Machinery are undeniably catchy, undeniably melodic and undeniably heavy. This EP will be stuck in your head for some time to come never able to shake any one of the tracks that appear on this release. Forte Ruin does a great job of constructing tracks that are easy to listen to and never stop listening to. With very solid musicianship that is backed with both gritty roars as well as pure angelic clean sung vocals, you become entranced never wanting to leave your listen or pull away from your speakers. Backing everything in melodic and serene fashion are ever present synths that tack on to the already melodious nature of Forte Ruin. These synths propel each track further, pushing them in to an even more melodious and wondrous soundscape than before.

As melodic and light as these tracks on Rebuilding the Machinery can be, Forte Ruin certainly does not skip out on supplying you with heavy head banging offerings. With melodic and serene comes the heavy and punishing as Forte Ruin provide you with rapid fire crunching riff after riff that are backed by ever blasting, somersaulting drumming. Forte Ruin balances the melodic with the heavy very well to create a sound that is wondrous, very infectious and highly memorable.

Rebuilding the Machinery is an all around solid effort in which each of the five tracks are just as good as the others. The balance of melody and heavy handed death metal here works so well gifting you with a cohesive listen that is hard to forget. With heavy riffing paired with the ever melodious synths and with harsh gritty screams paired with wonderfully clean sung vocals you are treated to a well rounded and well constructed effort. This is another great step for Forte Ruin in the right direction and it will be exciting to see what they have to offer when a full length appears.
