With a wrathful and insane sound, that crushes everything on its way, with unforgiving strength and hatred, this album also presents extremely cohesive and balanced harmonies, that heavily contrasts with the more destructive and aggressive side of the music. A really insane and unbelievable album, very direct, incisive and delightfully obscure, Extraterrestrial Hardening features a very conspicuous and lancinating sound, filled with a majestic hostility, exacerbated by a furious aggressiveness, like you haven’t heard in your life before.
Although the sound manages to be somewhat a little meticulous, with a formidable cast of twists, the abrasive, exceedingly rapid and incinerating melodies dissipates the chaotic rhythms everywhere throughout the music, and you feel instantly deeply exhilarated by their explosive approach, in what concerns death metal, taken to a such a brutal and extreme level, that you feel literally without your head, all the way through.
A very solid album, with an interesting degree of originality, that goes far beyond the ordinary limits of heaviness without sounding crude, raw or primitive, nor being just another noisy record, Extraterrestrial Hardening really breaks up and destroys all the boundaries in a formidable level, giving the genre another degree of authenticity, being so impressive, that you feel instantly mesmerized and shaken by it.
An aggressive and very audacious album, Extraterrestrial Hardening opens a new chapter in the history of death metal. Convoluted, dismissive and hard, filled with strength, vigor and a hallucinating stream of marvelous sonorous hostility, displaying the most aggressive melodies ever heard in the history of the genre, this is highly superior album, that each and every enthusiast of extreme metal will listen, approve and appreciate, without a doubt!
