With their roots firmly planted in the rotting soil of old-school death metal, Crawl provides you with that familiar rotten sound with new dynamism and intensity. Rituals freshly bleeds out nine tracks of adrenaline pumping and grave digging death metal that snaps your neck from the very beginning of track one. This unrelenting release is just that, unrelenting and unapologetic as it rampages through nine tracks of sickening and blasphemous death. There is nothing that can stop this deadly bulldozer of bloodied death once you have pressed play. Crawl plays with such head caving and skin bubbling intensity through and through that it is hard to peel yourself away from your speakers even for a moment.
Each of the nine tracks that are harbored within the confines of the title are pure brutalizing and addicting death. Rituals is exceptional through and through as it provides you with droves of high intensity riffs, a purely rotten sound and vocals that call out from beyond the crypt. There is no fluff, no filler, and certainly no bullshit to be found throughout Rituals as what you get are nine full tracks of rotten putrefaction. From the opener onward, Crawl stomps forth with blood curdling track after track providing you with something that is highly volatile and incredibly entertaining.
Rituals is a wonderfully brutalizing and flesh shredding release that is packed with adrenaline and enough stagnant death to bury you alive. This gut churning release is something to behold as it is pure death metal done damn near perfect. Rituals is nine tracks of pure unrelenting death done in the collapsed vein of the old yet making its sound all its own. Each track is a bombardment of death and a blitzkrieg of rot that eviscerate and send you to an early and bitter grave. This is an unforgiving offering that is sure to tear you to shreds before all is said and done.
This is an all together pulverizing and skull carving release, one that you will have a hard time putting down, and one that you can say will be among some of the best death metal releases this year.
Rituals will be released August 20, 2018 through Transcending Obscurity Records.
