Mexican/Turkish blackened death trio Sacrocurse follow up their debut full length ‘Unholier Master’ with a 7″ EP with three new tracks and a Bathory cover. It’s due out on Iron Bonehead Productions now!
Opening with ear piercing shrieks, and then a brutal relentless assault on the senses ‘Total Devastation’ is a razorblade whirlwind, with howling dark vocals and a raging black/death maelstorm of vicious guitars. It’s seriously intense, and even the slower sections have this malevolence about them, this barely chained rage struggling to be free. ‘Sacrocurse Temple’ is more of the same; bestial black metal atmosphere drowning a rabid, raw death metal riff. Sacrocurse have got some serious darkness flailing around under their cloak of murk. The savagery of the title track is the highlight here.
Closing with a suitably raw approach to the Bathory classic ‘Total Destruction’, Sacrocurse have made ‘Destroying Chapels’ into a great example of what can be done with with four songs, a shitload of hatred and some excellent riffs. If you can get this, get this!
