Moving forth, the hooks, the grooves, the expanses of doom and desolation all conjure something inescapable and dread-tinged while the malignant hammering of pure old school violence is not lost or forgotten, as warped riffs and blast-beats meet gutturally spewed vocals and occasional lead oddities. Contrasting often nuanced moments with an assault of bestial ferocity, there is no predictability or obvious pattern, rather a chaotic and honest approach to all of the songs. These tracks move in a lumbering fashion with organically composed structures while not feeling formulaic or running in circles with the same idea. Dead Void fantastically curate their most vile elements into a cohesive and ultimately expansive experience that takes the promise shown on the demos to unfathomable new heights. This is not simple or easily pigeon-holed Death Metal to follow a tiny niche. This is barbarity, extremity and atmospherics in Death Metal contorted to a whole new template of their own, which isn’t followed easily, but this defining debut album certainly makes the vision clear, for those who seek it in the murk.
Mark the day, for it shall be your last, when you hear Dead Void’s definitively obliterating debut album. Additionally, catch their album launch show at Loppen in Copenhagen on 26th August.
