Seven years have passed since the modern Tech death/core pioneers have brought aggression and filthy riffs to our ears with Skepsis. Yet their most anticipated album Disomus , set to be released October 13th, has already captured the deathcore scene since their signing to eOne Music earlier this year. We were teased with the single Hate The Living released in August, after torment of new possible LP’s over a period that’s seemed like a lifetime; the new release solidifies their much awaited comeback.
For fans of The Black Dahlia Murder and Born Of Osiris, this record is everything you can expect from a solid technical death production: trem-picked guitars, blast beats and undying pace. The vocal range of vocalist, Danny Rodriguez, spits familiar low guttural tones as well as shrieked screams- unparalleled to core elements. Despite the lack of solitary, lyrical concepts span from dark mythology to extra-terrestial horror, song writing mastery at its bloody finest!
Admittedly I’m not a supporter of the deathcore scene, yet that aside I have the upmost respect to the South Carolina lads for remaining consistent with backbone aggression and pace throughout Disomus; they’ve certainly appeased current fans this time around. Most notably, the band has always been true to the sub-genre they set out to be- influenced by OSDM giants Cannibal Corpse and Suffocation. With each breakdown pace is restored without dampening or delay. The track that showcases the sheer complexity of the album from my perspective has to be Teras– the terminology used to describe a foetus with two heads and one body, it really speaks for itself. The invasive shredwork and chuggy breakdowns gives a nod to Suffocation’s ’95 production which will go down a treat to new conservative listeners.
