These guys are fucking brutal. Vacivus have been drawing power from the blackened voids of the dark realms of chaos for a number of years now, and their latest offering is the two track ‘Nuclear Chaos’ EP. If it can create the same sickening darkness as their ‘Rite of Ascension’ EP from 2015, we’re all going to be in for a treat!

Opener ‘Unchaining the Winds of Uncreation’ crawls from the darkness with dripping water, ominous droning chants becoming a primal snarl, before a dense chainsawing riff drags an inhuman vocal from the void. Attacking like an enveloping fog, smothering each nasty riff with choking murk, Vacivus have excelled themselves once again. ‘Blind Idiot God’ has a bit more urgency about it, a blackened fury that writhes like a cyclone of hate. Challenging the darkest moments of Swedish death, Vacivus have taken that style a step further down into the depths.

I don’t think I’ve come across a Vacivus release I haven’t loved yet, and ‘Nuclear Chaos’ is no exception. This is music for the destruction of the world, sounding like the wrenching of the earth and the crushing of humanity. Ther’s no going back, and there’s no place to hide, for these riffs of ancient evil will find you…
