flightoficarus (Metal Trenches)
With just one song from each band, it is still one of the most crushing things you will hear this month. Both both songs feature a brand of technical death metal that seems to reach slimy tentacles across time and space. This is interdimensional death metal, and it's not calling to anything friendly. Reverb-ridden growls, contorted riffs, and occasional dips into funeral-influenced jazz. Think Malthusian: a penchant for variety in the dark arts and malevolent vocals. -metaltrenches.com
