Visceral Throne - Those Who Have Fallen Beyond the Grace of God

Indiana’s Visceral Throne bring the brutality on their new EP, ‘Those Who Have Fallen Beyond the Grace of God’, following up from 2012’s debut record ‘Omnipotent Asperity’. First off, I love this artwork, with incredibly intricate depictions of a hellish landscape. It pretty much sums up the kind of aural violence you are about to receive…

After the ominous Morbid Angel rumble of the title track introduction, the ravaging chaos of ‘Father’ hits with the force of a nuclear bomb. Blasting double kicks and brutal death riffs collide with guttural vocals, with devastating effect. There’s traces of jagged, Gorguts-esque riffing, but a crushing Suffocation influence looms largest. The battering laid down by ‘The True Sin’ turns into an epic groove, replete with brutal death breakdowns and a clatteringly hollow snare sound that is slightly offputting to be honest. Fortunately, it’s a minor complaint on an EP where the quality of death metal is high.

I love the relentless groove of ‘Indulgences’, and it’s probably my favourite track on here. Closing with the blistering Internal Suffering cover ‘Colossal Vortex’, Visceral Throne do enough here to merit repeated listens. ‘Those Who Have Fallen Beyond the Grace of God’ is a fine EP, and while the drums may feela little underproduced, the riff based carange underneath more than makes up for it. Crush. Kill.Destroy!
