SEEN AND HEARD (PART 1 OF 3): BENIGHTED, REAPING ASMODEIA, GOREPHILIA, DEIVOS
I find myself at the middle of the week, drowning again in new songs and videos from forthcoming albums. As I made my way through my list of discoveries this morning, it dawned on me that an even dozen of them could be conveniently divided into three segments, with the songs in each segment bearing a relationship to each other — at least to my twisted mind. So that’s what I’ve done.
We already have a big slate of posts planned for today, so I’m going to salt these three parts among the others, and keep my own descriptive verbiage to a minimum.
The first item is a NSFW video for a song called “Reptilian” from Necrobreed, the new album by the French gore-grind terrorists in Benighted, due for release by Season of Mist on February 24, 2017. I have two pieces of advice for you: First, listen to the song without watching the video, at least for the first listen. Otherwise you’ll have trouble paying attention to the music. Second, don’t watch the video on a full stomach; it will disrupt your digestion.
The video is disgusting. So is the song — though in the case of the music I use “disgusting” as a compliment.
Item Two in this collection is a NSFW video for the song “Of Talons and Teeth”, which appears on Impuritize, the new album by Minnesota’s Reaping Asmodeia, which will be released by Prosthetic on February 24.
I have two pieces of advice for you: First, listen to the song without watching the video, at least for the first listen. Otherwise you’ll have trouble paying attention to the music. Second, don’t watch the video on a full stomach; it will disrupt your digestion. Does that sound familiar?
Thankfully, for this next song you won’t have to fight the contents of your stomach to keep them from violently escaping, though the song will still violently violate you.
The track’s name is “The Ravenous Storm” and it will appear on the first album in five years from the Finnish death metal serial killers in Gorephilia. Featuring artwork by Raul Gonzalez, it will be released on March 3 by Dark Descent (and in a vinyl edition by Saco Un OjoRecords).
The final track in this collection is “Dust of the Universe” by the Polish death metal band Deivos from their new album Endemic Divine. The album is set for release on February 10 by Selfmadegod Records.
I’ve been a long-time fan of this group but haven’t had an occasion to froth at the mouth about them since they released their last album (Theodicy) in 2015. This song makes me froth at the mouth. I think I may have herniated a few spinal discs too.
Looking forward to all these releases
“Dust of the Universe” is a killer track 🙂
