PERVERSOR – Demon Metal CDEP
PERVERSOR/MORBOSIDAD – Invocaciones Demoniacas split 12’’
Nuclear War Now! Productions
Here’s a band I got into last year with their full length debut Cult of Destruction, which was released by Nuclear War Now! Productions. Unfortunately it came out in late 08 or I would’ve had it in my best of listings for 09. That release by Chile’s PERVERSOR, who started out in 97, stayed out of the rack ready to play at a moment’s notice for a year. So for now no new full length but instead we’ve got two worthy shorter releases. PERVERSOR are pure unholy blackened thrash that explodes in your face with the fury of a nuclear blast. This is demonstrated excellently at the ending of the cut “Detonate” which opens the Demon Metal CDEP. “Victory of the Legions of the Dammed” sounds like early MAYHEM crossing paths with SARCOFAGO. “Enthrone the God of Blasphemy” could be an outtake from BATHORY’s The Return. The song, “March to the Temple of Doom”, kicks up the speed and suffrage if you’re a loser, only giving a short mid period break. Listening to this I can envision some sick slam pit filled with demons chasing the unworthy (aka: whomever I hate this month). That cut bleeds into “Command” which sounds like blackened Hardcore or what the kids call “crust”. Five songs in seventeen minutes which will burn your sorry ass and hopefully make you drop that kiddie crap from your conscience. PERVERSOR bring back that danger to extreme metal which is surely needed.
On the split with MORBOSIDAD these Chileans are in full thrash and burn mode with six cuts worthy of giving the dark lord sunburn if not blisters. The first three cuts are complete insults to music in general furthering my respect for this band. Their latter three are more in the frame of what I expect aka: fast blasphemous thrash that’s semi understandable. “Metal Massacre” is a cut they could end their shows with and then watch as the club erupts in flames. The Awakening of the Ancient O” is more early BATHORY worship at 45 rpm speed. Finally “Obey” brings back the early MAYHEM. As far as the other side of this platter is concerned, MORBOSIDAD is a band from California who has been around since the early 90s although this is my first time hearing them. These guys are no slouches when it comes to their brand of punishing blackened death. Their side consists of six cuts, although technically it’s four since the second cut bleeds into three. MORBOSIDAD are a Mexican death squad in musical terms that is. The vocals are growled in Spanish while musically the band mixes death grind and some thrash. I like them alot because of their relentless pounding plus the lyrics being sung in Spanish, when there’s no death screams or growls, sounds sinister as fuck.
