Science fiction-imbued death metal here that’s mind-expanding and mind-destroying in roughly equal measure. Gloopy, complicated riffs squirm like strange new bacilli sucked from the core of a meteor and prodded blithely onto a microscope slide, while synth lines wobble uneasily just beyond one’s peripheral vision. The deep, gurgly vocals seem mixed to the point where they become one with the maelstrom rather than serve as any sort of clear, distinct focal point. While initial impressions might suggest a teeming, roiling chaos of sucking mouths and probing tentacles, longer exposure suggests warped intelligence and a deeply worrying design – the latest spawn of the same evil cosmic gunk that gave us Nocturnus, Massacre, Xoth and Blood Incantation.
