Burial Hordes - Extinction

Greek blackened monsters Burial Hordes have been going for about 15 yeaars, and their latest EP ‘Extinction’ is a continuation of their anti everything message. This four track EP is out in October on Folter Records, and it is going to be a recommended pickup by the time darkness graces our world.

When you think of Greek black metal, you automatically are drawn towards Rotting Christ, but Burial Hordes are a little bit more towards the deathly, morbid crawl than their genre peers. This has more of a Speticflesh feel about it; while the atmosphere is definitely dense and dark in opener ‘Demise’, the riffing is more death metal, more frenzied. Evil vocals spew upon the flailing blackened death metal riffs that crawl and lurch from the underground. The fiery ‘World Ablaze’ has a murky, Deicide-esque feeling about it which is pretty badass too.

‘Dawn of War’ writhes with a blackened energy, and is the most pure black metal track on here, bringing to mind the likes of Gorgoroth and Marduk. It is uncompromising in its blitzkrieg assault, and even when it does, the musical directions are fairly intense. Rampant blasting and horribly dense guitar work finishes us off in ‘Hatred’, leaving us battered, bloodied and ready for more. Burial Hordes are a band to cherish, as this release shows, because their art is true, dark and very very good.
