Fetid - Steeping Corporeal Mess

Oozing from the sodden, ancient Pacific Northwest comes Fetid, a band who is more suited to the bubbling, boiling pits of hell than that grand, tree swept landscape. Their ‘Steeping Corporeal Mess’ record is out now through 20 Buck Spin, and is a journey through the miasma of pure darkness.

The virulent, pulsing chaos of opener ‘Reeking Within’ is reminiscient of the more straightforward bits of Portal; a suffocating tidal wave of crushing death metal that bends and sweeps like prime Immolation. The whole record feels like a rumbling, lava induced death of this world. Everything is consumed in this dark, dense atmosphere that makes songs like ‘Cranial Liquescent’ feel murky and apocalyptic. The low end creaking through this record is ludicrous, with each chugging breakdown sounding like the cracking of the earth’s plates, best felt in the titanic ‘Dripping Sub-Tepidity’

By the time the end comes, through the magnificent pestilence of ‘Draped in What Was’, the poisonous suffocating magma is setting, and you are trapped in the hellacious realm that Fetid have created. A stunning record of the heaviest matter in the universe, highly recommended.
