Three years ago we had the ghoulish pleasure of premiering the debut album of the precocious Finnish death metal band Galvanizer, summing it up as “a full-throttle, titanically toned barrage”, with each compact song delivering “an electrifying death/grind rampage, each one spliced with grooves”. As we wrote then, “the music rips, romps, and pounds, and sometimes (but not often) it drops into a grisly, staggering lurch,” with the whole affair draped in “a morbid mantle of horror”.
Sanguine Vigil was indeed hellishly impressive, and so is their full-length follow-up, Prying Sight of Imperception. It’s so impressive that Me Saco Un Ojo and Everlasting Spew have again teamed up to release it, as they did the debut album, and so impressive that we’ve again signed on for a premiere in advance of the July 26 release date. Today’s revelation is “The Ever-Crescent“.
