Blasphemy – Victory (Son Of The Damned) [UPDATE: SOLD OUT}
Blasphemy – Victory (Son Of The Damned)
By now, BLASPHEMY are basically THE cult metal band (Ross Bay Cult Eternal!6!6!6) Legend tells that fanzines and audiences at the time considered them in a different light – the drumming was grinding and the riffs were deathly – but history has them hailed as heralds of a blacker dawn. There has always been something reminiscent of punk in their delivery, a kind of blunt (BLUDGEONING) naïveté which has served in fastening them to the hallowed walls of black metal’s hallowed halls – far more dark and atmospheric than grind scum and less swanky than death metal virtuosos – which has them located in a realm not dissimilar to the South American extreme metal bands of the 80’s. The members’ monikers on Victory (Son Of The Damned) are as follows:
Nocturnal Grave Desecrator and Black Winds,
Three Black Hearts of Damnation and Impurity,
Caller of the Storms,
DeathLörd of Abomination & War Apocalypse,
Bestial Saviour of the Undead Legions
Simply put; Blasphemy’s music is as bad ass as it is terrifying. Seriously wild.
Also in stock are – Blood Upon The Altar demo, Gods Of War, Blood Upon The Soundspace demo.
Hardcore. Very hardcore. Boston hardcore. Japanese hardcore. Very hardcore. If you’ve ever heard Waste Managament, this debut long player still sounds a hell of a lot like Waste Management. There is a certain unwavering steadiness and confidence in ability which comes with years of experience, but there’s an element of subtle experimentation blended in, which mightn’t be noticed at first because - let’s face it - these cats are pros. It fucking drills and pummels like nobody’s business, and if we’re being direct there’s slamming riffs out the goddamn wazoo. Very hardcore!
