Members of the esteemed bands Catacomb have joined forces with members of Affliction Gate to create something that is ultimately skin peeling heavy, and steeped in the sound of ancient death metal. Their debut EP titled Here The Dead Live features six total tracks that blend old-school death metal and elements of thrash metal together to create an unholy, ripping and entirely memorable effort. You will find no filler here as Nox Irae shoot straight out of the gate as soon as you press play to offer you something that will surely melt your face from your skull and boil the blood that courses through your veins.
Gnarled, nasty and bone gnawing, Here The Dead Live is a flesh tearing and skull rattling effort that gets you bashing your brain against your skull in no time. Each of the six tracks that are harbored within this title will worm their way under your skin and make their home among your brain for some time to come. As heavy and neck snapping as each track is, they are just as memorable and catchy all the same making you come back for more and more of your insatiable death metal fix.
With buzzing flesh picking riffs that are coupled with ever pummeling drum work and bass lines that will rattle the spinal fluid straight out of your spine, monstrous, grit filled vocals pierce their way through the wall of buzzing death to tie everything together. Here The Dead Live is a monstrous, impressive, gnarled, nasty, flesh peeling and brain bruising effort that you simply will not be able to get enough of. Each cut within this offering is pure death with elements of thrash thrown in the mix for good neck snapping measure.
Barreling forth from the drop of the first note, Nox Irae offer up a sound that is gritty, and dripping in ancient death, pummeling you within an inch of your life until all is said and done. Forever ceaseless and disregarding of human life, these death dealers march forth from cut one to cut six leaving you a bloodied and bruised mess once all is said and done. With that said, even though you will be left near lifeless, you still find yourself coming back for more flesh tearing, and lobotomizing, grisly death. This debut EP is a solid one and a stand out for sure, and it will be exciting to see what Nox Irae has to offer in the future based off of this excellent debut.
Here The Dead Live will be unleashed November 15 through Transcending Obscurity Records.
