The Pitch: "Blackened death, slime-ridden sludge and abhorrent doom" from Wyoming's Casket Huffer via Hibernation Release.  

What I Like: Some people huff glue, others prefer the stench of the dead. I'm sure I'm not the first to make that joke, but then again with a name like Casket Huffer, I'm not sure that subtlety or innovation are necessarily part of the mission statement. As such, with Filth Ourorboros (basically an endless cycle of filth), you can more or less guess what to expect from this release. Ugly, unchained death metal reverberates throughout the cavernous production like the beasts from The Descent. The blackened riffs conjure as much Gorgoroth as they do Obituary. I also dig the very death n' roll portion of "The Antichrist Vessel" that kicks off with a very Tom G Warrior "Ungh!" But expect a few surprises here and there as well. There are some even notable moments of melodicism to be found as well on tracks like "Genocide Thralls." The solo sounds straight out of a Cult Of Fire release.

Critiques: The structure of the album feels a little clunky at times. I dig the breadth of different subgenres on display, but sometimes they bump up against eachother and others drag on a bit too long.

The Verdict: Filth Ouroboros is a solid blackened death metal release that delivers on its promises of depravity while also offering a few left turns to keep things interesting. I'd like the songwriting to be a little smoother in terms of transitions, but otherwise I'm pleased with the variety on display.

Flight's Fav's: Altars of Despondency, The Antichrist Vessel, Genocide Thralls
