Welcome to Terminus Lite: half the calories but all the full-bodied flavor you know and love. Today's episode is on the shorter side- TBMG is off on a trip to Parts Unknown- but don't worry, we have longer ones planned for the future. We're playing with formats, introducing post-structuralist theory to the podcast realm- please keep listening (please.) Today is a tight, death metal focused episode from two very different sides of the spectrum:
Part one: sheer, uncompromising brutality. Indonesia's Cadavoracity recently released their second, self-titled full length, which elaborates on the New Standard Elite style of blasting ultra-brutal death metal with an intensely organic sense of rhythm and pacing. While Cadavoracity emerges purely from the realm of BDM, the overall effect of their withering attack is not unlike Impetuous Ritual, Grave Upheaval, or Antediluvian. Chalk another tally mark for brutal death accidentally becoming abstract art music, but way cooler than that because someone is gurgling the entire time.
The flip side: a more approachable but no less authentic new record by Swedish masters Vomitory. Comparable in many ways to the Defleshed record we covered last year, Vomitory plays a blend of Swedish and American styles of death metal augmented by large doses of thrash and grind. On this record, Vomitory's 30 plus year pedigree shows itself tremendously, effortlessly moving between melodeath riffs, Slayer-inspired thrash passages, and vicious downtempo stomp with an elegance far exceeding their contemporaries in nearly every dimension.
