I have no clue what is in the water or air over there in Italy but some of the heaviest music has been coming out of there lately. Here is Antropofagus‘ third full length release and this one honestly caught me off guard. MORTE or “Methods of Resurrection Through Evisceration” is a carefully killer blend of violent death metal and even more barbaric brutal death metal. If you like your riffs thick and heavy with a side of high speeds then you’ll love this one. Antropofagus delivers a proper death metal album here and every single song will make you snap your neck.
The wonderful thing about MORTE and Antropofagus in general is…well…everything. This release has everything I want in a death metal release. Fantastic writing and guitar riffs that cover my death, brutal death, slam, technical death metal needs and the bass/drums and vocals deliver on punishing levels to make it all come together for a thrilling music listening experience. Vocals are a lower mid range growl with some higher pitched screams delivered. The guitars are majestic and keep me on the edge of my seat. The bass is highly audible and packs quite a punch in terms of both rhythmic delivery and thunderous power. The drumming is to die for, as the grooves, fills, speed and sound is just incredible.
Antropofagus does not churn out music very often but they do not need to. This music is long lasting and will keep you headbanging for a long long time. “Methods of Resurrection Through Evisceration” is extremely violent, fast, brutal and wonderfully put together. There isn’t enough metaphors or words to put down that would match my gratitude and appreciation for this release. What an outstanding album.
