Sepolcro: Undead Abyss

April 1, 2018


Rising from bloodied coffins in 2011, Sepolcro had released a demo in 2013 titled Festering Evocation, then in 2016 they released a split titled Horrendous Plasmation before splitting. Two years later-earlier this year-these mutilators reconvened to continue their rampage of sickness and death.

Undead Abyss is the title of their upcoming offering which features three brand new tracks that are grisly and rotten to the core. Sepolcro begin Undead Abyss with the wonderfully titled “Bone Totem”, which begins with an ominous doom centered sound that creeps slowly and ominously through your speakers. Bone Totem is the “slowest” track on this demo as it trudges forth at a slow to mid tempo providing you with an appropriate taste of what is to come, and what is to come is sickening and perverse death in heaping doses.

From Bone Totem on you are greeted with two more lacerating and maiming tracks. Nothing here is filler or fluff as Sepolcro blast forth with murderous and malicious intent. With buzzing riffs, ever pummeling drumming and blood thirsty vocals, Sepolcro offer up nasty and stagnant death in droves. In three tracks Sepolcro provide you with unfiltered, raw and blood drenched death that is intent on severing your spine before things are all said and done. The remaining two tracks after the opener are more uptempo offerings that blast and chip away at your skull from the very beginning never to relent.

As short as Undead Abyss is it surely packs quite a punch. With only three tracks to its name, Undead Abyss offers up sick, twisted and gnarled death that that seems to have it out for anyone that wants to listen. This is a solid demo overall and it will be interesting to see where Sepolcro takes things from here, but for now we are left with three defiling and deadly tracks to snap our collective necks to.

Undead Abyss will be released May 15, 2018

Bursting through their caskets and soon after, your chest, Coffin Rot supply gritty, grime, gore and bile filled offerings that are wonderfully bloodied and rotten. There are four tracks to the self titled release from these Oregonian monsters that are riddled with disease and entrails soaked death that lacerate and mutilate from beginning to end. No frills, no filler, no unwanted anything can be found within this release as you get an unhealthy dose of nothing but putrid stagnant death. Coffin Rot certainly doesn’t wait around too long for you to get comfortable in your tomb as they barrel straight out of your speakers with the opener Incubation of Madness, and from then on you are at their malicious mercy.

From Incubation of Madness on you are greeted with the three remaining tracks that are just as putrid and corpse defiling. Each of the four tracks within this demo have an irresistibly rotten sound. From beginning to end each of the four tracks pour through your speakers like blood spilling over an operating table. The overall sound of this offering is that of the ancient as this demo sounds as though it has been festering for twenty plus years only to grace our gnarled and chewed up ear drums now.

Coffin Rot rip, gnash and shred through your flesh from beginning to end with an unrelenting onslaught of pure death. These gore filled tracks are just as addicting as they are entrails ripping as they lacerate your flesh and pulverize you in to an early grave. Each track is potent as they blast forth ceaselessly to provide you with an ever wicked and vile listen. These perverse offerings of death are very well done and very well executed as Coffin Rot supplies you with some very sinister yet memorable tunes to sever your head from your neck to.

After the drop of the first note Coffin Rot charge forth with malevolence and murderous intent never looking back at who they have claimed as their next victim. This entire demo is done very well as you are greeted with four excellent death metal tunes. This is a great step forth for these crypt dwellers as they have put forth a very solid demo here.
