Kansikuva EP Cultivate our blood on Aeon.jpg

Rising up from Lucifer’s den and clawing their way out of the abyss below to provide you with nothing but blackened misery is Dark Archive. These blasphemers have been around since 2016, and since their blackened inception have released an EP in 2016 titled Abandon All Hope, only to follow that up with two more releases titled Closure of Empyrean Delirium and Godfear Eradication respectively. Cultivate Our Blood in Aeon is the culmination of both Closure of Empyrean Delirium and Godfear Eradication ultimately providing you with five total tracks of black metal destruction and malevolence. For five straight tracks you become acquainted with a blistering, hellish and hell fire soaked sound that rips and tears at your flesh until you are nothing more than bone.

Dark Archive lure you in to their brand of tempestuous black metal with a brief intro that ultimately leads you in to pure destruction and carnage. Cultivate Our Blood in Aeon is a savage and unrelenting release that charges at you horns first trying only to impale, maim and expunge you from this earth. From the very get go, Dark Archive is unapologetic in their approach as they riddle each track with tightly knit, razor sharp riffs that are supplemented by blasting drumming that picks away at your sanity for the entirety of the release. You never really have a moment to catch your breath or prepare yourself for the coming aural assault as Dark Archive swiftly move from track to track ladling visceral punishment upon you.

Cultivate Our Blood in Aeon is a turbulent release that never really gives you a moment of reprieve. Even in tracks such as Closure of Empyrean Delirium where they fade the track out with a more serene sound and with Godfear Eradication where they lull you in to a sense of safety; those moments never last all too long before Dark Archive rain scalding, ferocious and venomous black metal down from the sky draining you of your life. Each track is a monster all its own, gifting you with nothing but malevolent and satanic tunes for you to relinquish your soul to.

This release from Dark Archive is well strung together and well performed creating an overall sound that is clean and incredibly flesh peeling. Cultivate Our Blood in Aeon is a destructive force, one that is unrelenting and unforgiving. Ultimately, this is a great listen as it provides you with plenty of gnarled tunes to crank your neck to all while making you want more and more blasphemous tracks leading to you pressing play over again.

Cultivate Our Blood in Aeon was released through Inverse Records January 31, 2018.

Satanic: Architecture of Chaos

Satanic-Architecture-of-Chaos.jpg

When sewn together, thrash and death metal typically create a chaotic and mayhem fueled sound that does its best to peel your face back off of your skull and with Architecture of Chaos that is what Satanic tries to do. Satanic marries thrash metal and death metal together to create a wholly head bang worthy sound that is ripping from beginning to end. While the joining of both thrash and death isn’t something that is entirely unique or new, the entirety of Architecture of Chaos is an entirely entertaining and enjoyable listen. Throughout this release you are presented with eight tracks that shred right from the beginning never to look back at all of the mayhem that they have spread.

From beginning to end Satanic provides you with ripping tune after ripping tune. There isn’t one second of filler or fluff that can be found within this record as you are greeted with nothing but eight tracks of deadly thrash infused death metal that snaps your head back from the drop of the first note. From the very beginning Satanic pour their brand of hellish thrash tinged death metal on thick never to stop and never to let their foot off of the pedal. Each track leads right in to the next blistering track never really giving you much time to prepare or breathe.

Through each track you will be greeted with furious riffage that is complimented by spastic yet pin point drumming, rumbling thick bass lines and vocals that are bloodied and barbaric. Through and through each track is a sonic thrashing assault that gets your head banging nearly immediately after starting. The musicianship on this release is on point as are the vocals and production making for an entertaining high octane kind of listen.

The cross between thrash and death metal works well for Satanic as they balance both genre’s well throughout the entirety of their release. Death metal or thrash doesn’t seem to take complete control of any of the eight tracks and instead they work harmoniously together to create a chaotic sonic assault. Through and through, Architecture of Chaos is a solid release, one that you can listen to on repeat and jam out to until your heart is content.

This is a fast paced, adrenaline pumping release that will be a sure winner for fans of thrash metal and death metal alike.
