It saddens me that the most discussion I have been hearing around Eximperituserqethhzebibšiptugakkathšulweliarzaxułum's album, Prajecyrujučy Sinhuliarnaje Wypramieńwańnie Daktryny Absaliutnaha J Usiopahłynaĺnaha Zła Skroź Šaścihrannuju Pryzmu Sîn-Ahhī-Erība Na Hipierpawierchniu Zadyjakaĺnaha Kaŭčęha Zasnawaĺnikaŭ Kosmatęchničnaha Ordęna Palieakantakta... simply surrounds how long their name and album and track titles are. I mean sure, the Minsk brutal death metal band didn't exactly keep things short...but if Fiona Apple can make a number one record with an even longer name, why can't these guys?
More importantly, never judge a book by its cover. This is about the music, and the music is good. Conceptually the band states that the songs represent an "acroamatic cryptogram" narrating about "the structure of death and the dark side of philosophical-religious world outlook of ancient civilizations...ritual ceremonies and military marches of Ancient East braiding with the blackest metaphysics in the cosmic journeys of mind." And they recommend their album to fans of Hate Eternal, Nile, Decrepit Birth, and Origin. Now doesn't that sound intriguing.
Beginning with the vox, they are as brutal as the come. Croaky grunts are vomited forth in a ghastly display of guttural agility. The delivery is menacing and completely unearthly. Eximperituserqethhzebibšiptugakkathšulweliarzaxułum claim to be in favor of all things raw and repugnant, and this comes through in every element of their sound. The vocals are only the tip of the iceburg.
In terms of the arrangements, Eximperituserqethhzebibšiptugakkathšulweliarzaxułum form a nice union between the Florida death metal scene and more blackened, atmospheric groups like Adversarial. Like this band, the drums are often kept front and center. The volume of each snare hit threatens my eardrums exploding with every strike as the drummer plays with a number of blastbeat variations. Meanwhile the guitars chug, squelch, and otherwise annihilate the listener with frightening speed and dexterity. I am partial to tracks 4 and 5 with the Behemothy overtones to some of the chord structures and melodies as well as the chaotic soloing. But really, this album just seems to get better the further you get into it.
So don't let Prajecyrujučy Sinhuliarnaje Wypramieńwańnie Daktryny Absaliutnaha J Usiopahłynaĺnaha Zła Skroź Šaścihrannuju Pryzmu Sîn-Ahhī-Erība Na Hipierpawierchniu Zadyjakaĺnaha Kaŭčęha Zasnawaĺnikaŭ Kosmatęchničnaha Ordęna Palieakantakta...'s thesis paper of a title put you off, and ignore the haters. Give this thing a listen for yourself. I would be highly surprised if you end up hating it. Belarus continues to put out some of the darkest, heaviest bands I have had the pleasure of listening to, and Eximperituserqethhzebibšiptugakkathšulweliarzaxułum is no exception.
