HATESPIRIT – AGELESS WILDERNESS LP (Altare Productions)

Sunday, December 30th, 2018

Hatespirit - Ageless WildernessAcross their potent and pungent second full-length, ‘Ageless Wilderness’, Hatespirit invite us to imbibe the intoxicating splendour of Finland’s flawless, fecund forestry, partaking of a primeval passage through rich, fertile, enchanted woodlands, majestic natural landscapes where all manner of dark, organic magic resides, an orgiastic undertaking of pure, natural sensory overload, an ode to the ethereal, unearthly existences one will never encounter on human-raped parts of our despoiled planet, thankfully raw and grim with neither a barn-dancing troll nor folky breakdown in range.

CORPSESSED – IMPETUS OF DEATH LP (Dark Descent Records / Me Saco Un Ojo Records)

Thursday, December 27th, 2018

Corpsessed - Impetus Of DeathDeath Metal of the very highest calibre from Finland’s foulest filthmongers, ‘Impetus Of Death’ captures Corpsessed at their most punishing, pummeling, pain-bringing prominence, crunchy as crusty skin, catchy as Ebola, crushing as an osmium coffin lid, stabbing and hammering your futile face, wallowing in the stream of blood and mush that flows from the festered human malformation, a dead congregation rejoicing in majestic emancipation.

Sunday, December 23rd, 2018

Svartidauði - Revelations Of The Red SwordOn sophomore full-length, ‘Revelations Of The Red Sword’, Svartidauði transition seamlessly from the monolithic magmatic emissions that rendered ‘Flesh Cathedral’ one of Iceland’s most colossal black episodes to shorter, sharper solar strikes still scorching through the ether, sizzling sanity, sanitising psychosis and reaffirming their enduring essence, even with a man overboard.
