Demonic Obedience – „Fatalistic Uprisal of Abhorrent Creation”
Satanath Records
Limited Edition – 500 Copies

After emerging from the ashes of Deceptive Incarnation, Demonic Obedience has steadily been building up strength from the inception of their debut „Morbid Supremacy of Evil”, from a primal blast of pure speed much in the same style as Deicide or Blasphemy, into the fire-breathing monstrosity which has now unleashed their third full-length assault of psychotic metal, this heathen war machine is now primed for complete global annihilation. „Fatalistic Uprisal of Abhorrent Creation” takes the foundation of extreme speed and spiked-club brutality of Demonic Obedience previous album „Nocturnal Hymns to the Fallen” and wraps it in a stellar production which provides much needed emphasis on the guitar riffs (something the previous album lacked) and gives the entire soundscape a slightly cleaner edge without sacrificing any primal rawness.
What we get here is 34 minutes of crushing, horrific death/black metal insanity. There’s not one blastbeat or grindcore-based riff to be found here – it’s pure, old school violence in the great Incantation/Angelcorpse tradition.They are truly amazing and they are able to take their influences from lots of extreme sides and bands. Their style is not simply brutal death metal but has also inside a great level of technique and the musicianship of these guys is just enviable.Since the opening track, “Conjuration” they show no remorse in martyrizing our poor ears. Incredibly, we can also find some Malevolent Creation influences in the riffage and the production is extremely clear. The blast beats parts are huge and relentless; just few times they are alternated to up tempo sections or fast bass drum restarts. The guitars solos are just amazing because they concentrate everything in few seconds, from technique to brutality and catchiness. There isn’t a moment to relax because when “Conjuration” comes, everything explodes. The tempo is always fast and now some Morbid Angel oriented riffs come to bring the sound a more dissonant and complicated sound. The riffage is precise and it’s amazing to imagine them playing in that way. The title track continues as a support in violence to the other tracks. Up until now we haven’t met a moment to chill out. Everything here is voted to the sheer power, to the speed of the instruments and the brutality of the vocals. Kruxator vocals belch over the top of the cacophony like some enraged ghoul,he’s vocals stink of rotting earth, its like they emerge form below the surface and seem undead, and go so incredibly low that I am convinced they use a pitch-shifter, which apparently they do not,while the guitars run through a series of ear-ripping riffs underpinned by fuzz-encrusted bass abuse and a neverending gamut of time changes.
Overall, one can’t help but be reminded of old Morbid Angel and Angelcorpse here. The blasting, ferocious drumming, snarled vocals, and classic old school death metal riffs pierced by the occasional tormented lead break all smack of both bands’ ability to seamlessly merge sheer violence with thrashing power and a good dose of chaotic melody where needed.This album has it all for any fan of extreme metal: Blasphemous lyrics, harsh-as-hell vocals, brutal guitar work, intense solos, killer and fast drum work, and an original sounding band. Any fan of speed, thrash, black or death metal, GET THIS ALBUM!
