It has been twenty-four solid years since the disturbing inception of Lividity, and within those twenty plus years these heathens have been laying waste with their vicious and insidious brand of death grind. With numerous EPs, splits and demos under their skin stitched belt, Perverseverance is their fifth full length. Within this lobotomizing offering you are greeted with twelve offerings of perverse and insanely twisted metal that is sure to leave you covered in bile, viscera and copious amounts of smegma. You would come to expect nothing other than pure barbarity from Lividity and that is exactly what they deliver. From beginning to end you are treated to a skull grinding and gut slitting offering that is as relentless as you would want it to be and as you would imagine it to be.
Lividity begin their new offering with a crowd chanting, “No means yes, and yes means anal”, just to give you a little vile taste of what is to come. After the chant for anal subsides, Lividity gets in to the putrid meat of their record as they mash their pike through your skull presenting you with gut grinding metal. Chunky riffs, ever bone splintering drumming and unearthly blood stained vocals pour from your speakers one second after another as Lividity marches forth providing you with something foul and grotesque. As each minute passes you become buried further and further underneath copious amounts of gore and fetid viscera. Perverseverance is relentless from beginning to end as it gifts you with twelve straight gut churning tracks.
The slaughtering never ceases as Lividity rolls from track to track greeting you with nothing but sharpened track after sharpened track that is ready to gut. Never are you treated to reprieve, even when there is an occasional audio clip attached to the beginning of certain tracks as those are just as perverse as the rampaging grind that comes afterward. These tracks are perverse, wretched and down right putrid as Lividity offers up some of the most sickening death grind.
With great musicianship coupled with solid song writing and production, Lividity offer up their best record to date. Perverseverance is a well crafted offering that treats you to brutalizing grind around every corner, leaving you asking for more and having you reach for the play button as fast as you can. Each track is a well constructed lobotomizing machine that gets you bashing your brain against your skull and cranking your neck until your spine curves. This is a wicked and well done release by the masters of perverse death grind.
Perverseverance will be released November 30, 2018 through Metal Age Productions.
