Since their hideous inception in 2000, Aborted Fetus have been dismembering, maiming and mutilating at an ever steady pace. With their newest offering The Ancient Spirits of Decay, Aborted Fetus show no signs of slowing down as they supply you with thirteen brand new brain mashing tracks. From gnarled beginning to putrid end, Aborted Fetus rampage onward as they shovel heaps of nasty, vile and twisted death upon you in unhealthy proportions. With nothing but terrorizing and dehumanizing tracks to its name, The Ancient Spirits of Decay offers up blood soaked track after blood soaked track that leave you lobotomized and rotting.
Aborted Fetus begins their new onslaught of death with their foreboding and ominous opener The Wind of Agonizing Spirits, which is the perfect track to set you up for what is to come. The Wind of Agonizing Spirits gives you just a little taste of the mayhem and carnage that you are about to encounter by cracking your chest with ever hammering drums and rotted riffs. From here on out you are supplied with more of the same inhumane and slaughtering sound that leaves you quartered. Once The Wind of Agonizing Spirits dies down, Aborted Fetus jumps straight into their first flesh gnashing and blood letting offering that immediately grabs you by the jaw, and then you are off on a nasty and perverse trek through the land of death.
From beginning to end Aborted Fetus grind away at your skull exposing your brain. They shift from track to track like a serial killer lumbering toward their next victim providing you with detrimental and gut ripping track after gut ripping track. The Ancient Spirits of Decay is an oppressive and flesh masticating force to be reckoned with as it scalds your skin and boils your blood. From the onset, this unapologetic release rips, tears and hacks away at you until you are no more than bone. This grisly and monstrous release is an unrelenting force of terror that grips you by the throat never to let go until the final blood soaked note has rang out.
Through and through, The Ancient Spirits of Decay is nothing but decaying and putrid death, nothing more and nothing less. And what you get from this release is thirteen very solid and very heavy tracks that aim for you to have your neck snapped by the end of it all. This offering is a highly entertaining and highly sickening record that is sure to have your brains mashed and your flesh torn before all is said and done, and really what more could we ask for from these death stalwarts? Overall, “The Ancient Spirits of Decay” is a well put together and well performed record that will surely please the chewed up ears of death metal fans all over.
