Carlisle, Cumbria’s death groove battering machine Triverse Massacre have released ‘With Bared Teeth and Truths’, a new four track release that is chock full of riffs, aural violence and scintillating songs. This is the follow up to 2010’s ‘In the Jaws of Deceit’ debut, and continues this band’s evolution into a slick, instrument of destruction.

Opening with ‘Wolves at the Gate’, a juddering assault of groove and savagery. The crushing breakdown elements mesh well with the blasting and the mixture between low growls and raw screams shows fine versatility. They even throw in a cool melodic solo as well, which is definitely a pleasant surprise. So far, so brutal. ‘Exhale Betrayal’ is more surgical, reminscient of latter period Hypocrisy. There is less of a groove in it, and much more of a waspish intensity.

‘Bullets Kill Beasts’ comes out of the starting blocks with a much more subdued intro before some, almost classic metal riffs build under howling shrieks. There’s some excellent, galloping riffing here, again coupled with some blasting and some great melodies. Closing with the menacing ‘Torn from the Throne’, with its thick groove and uneasy atmospherics, Triverse Massacre show the kind of promise that is going to be worth watching in the next few years. Crushing, savage and thoroughly enjoyable.
