INVOCATION SPELLS - Spread Cruelty In The Abyss CD (PREORDER)
NB! Restock item, shipping April
There's simply no stopping INVOCATION SPELLS. One of the hottest bands in the shit-hot Chilean black/death scene, this diabolical duo continues to unleash one punishing slab of filth 'n' fury after another, each one more concise and crushing than the next. Spread Cruelty in the Abyss follows hot on the heels of the critically acclaimed The Flame of Hate, released internationally last year by HELLS HEADBANGERS. Like that predecessor, Spread Cruelty in the Abyss wastes absolutely no time in igniting a sulfurous conflagration from the first few notes...except this time, it's more quickly apparent how daresay catchy INVOCATION SPELLS have become.
Lest anyone accuse the band of softening or selling out, be aware that Spread Cruelty in the Abyssis simply and 100% INVOCATION SPELLS through and through: no compromise, and no quarter. Like The Flame of Hate before it and Descendent the Black Throne before that, Spreads Cruelty in the Abyss possesses a special magick that eludes easy "blackthrash" categorization - namely, through an acute balance between the bestial and more classically speed metal tropes - but the molten, even martial pulse the duo develop further here turns these more deliberately hypnotic spells of possession into veritable anthems of minimalism, spilling poison and black blood in equal measure, and even more endlessly headbanging than before. And with this unselfconscious, even-more-pronounced emphasis on "catchiness" comes an even swifter and stricter sense of economy: Spread Cruelty in the Abyss clangs 'n' bangs with absolute authority in a mere 26 minutes. Get in, get out, get fucked.
