Label: Unsigned

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑: 𝕲𝖚𝖎𝖙𝖆𝖗 & 𝕭𝖆𝖘𝖘: Within the realm of all full-lengths

there is a strong classic/Swedish old-school death

foundation; with overall of mixture off fast/slow -

catchy/groovy buzzsaw riffing & solos, crushing heaviness,

aggression and straight forward of brutalization...

As time creeps onto the last two full-lengths, the attitude of

the guitars are changed (a little) to a faster n’ roll sound,

creepy melodically & solo parts, but keeping the crushing

heaviness & brutalization… with ravaging pickings of the

bass from the ‘Repulsive Vision’ guitarist!

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑: 𝖁𝖔𝖈𝖆𝖑𝖘: Low deep (harsh)/brutal death grunts,

then later adding an unearthly noise and shrieks…

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖗𝖚𝖒𝖘: Bone-shattering beats, that are

mid-pace, fast, slow beats and top off with malefic

double bass beats

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: With twenty-six songs of torture and

pain, and clocking over an hour and ten minutes of pure

evilest of old-school death metal, with Internal Caustic

Torments (1993) taking the listener to a primitive/old-school

death metal sound, while Downfall Rising (2015) keeps the old school foundation, but with additional horrific sounds, giving the album a darker tone, then we have The Great Desolation (2018), with additional catchy melodies & technically thrown in the pit! But within the whole horror realm of their music, the underground, catchiest, crushing heaviness, brutalization and anger are all kept…

***brilliant songwriting/music ** full of energy ** very underground & old-school***

Pure Underground Death Metal act

with horrific & torturous of

old-skool of heaviness & brutalization!!

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁: 𝕬𝖗𝖙𝖜𝖔𝖗𝖐: The artwork in all three albums, is like looking through the pages of a horror book!! Full of darkness, nightmare, horror, gore, torture,  violence & Lovecraftian horror

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑: 𝕺𝖚𝖙𝖘𝖙𝖆𝖓𝖉𝖎𝖓𝖌: For me, is the second full length with the dark feel and the additional horror sounds and the artwork on all full-lengths

𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖁𝖑𝖑: 𝕯𝖎𝖘𝖑𝖎𝖐𝖊: For me, I have no dislike for this band or their music
