There's two songs on this single. Both of them are crushing pieces of blackened death metal where drums and vocals are barely audible behind the wall of sound the guitars and bass create. The riffs sound more like fierce drones with a sound that reminds me a bit of Dismember. Deep guttural vocals follow a similar sound and almost drown in this pool of distortion and brutality. This is hallucinant noise at its most vile and putrid.
Yet, I like it. In a way this single reminds me a bit of the Autokrater album I reviewed earlier. This is already way beyond death metal and it obviously makes me curious about the full-length. As crushing and devastating as this little gem is, it will be hard to keep a full-length interesting with this sound. However, somehow I feel that Altarage will do just fine and will be come a serious force in the world of death metal.
