CORPSESSED – Abysmal Thresholds CD
Corpsessed traffic in dank, putrid atmosphere, with riffs just barely able to peek out from beyond the pale. Once you hit play, you may notice that the vocals and guitars often blur into a wall of sound, an unstoppable freight train bowling you over. Though they go for some stop-and start grooves a few times, such as at the ending of “Transcend Beyond Human”, the band by and large keep the heavy atmosphere omnipresent, never letting the Lovecraftian images their music conjures leave your headspace. To put it succinctly, these guys play death metal that sounds straight out of the abyss.
