The Pitch: 20 Buck Spin releases Surging Throng Of Evil’s Might, the debut album from New Mexico blackened death metal band, Superstition. FFO: Cultes Des Ghoules
What I Like: This 20 minute release, especially opening track "Death's Fuming Passage." demonstrate some serious potential for Superstition's future. The beastly, hellish production, skewering tremolos, and viciously pounding drums elevate the maniacal atmosphere to a level previously only occupied by legends like Cultes Des Ghoules. Compositions finely tread the line between black and death metal right down to the wretched vocals, evoking the fire and grimness of the former alongside the pummeling, raw nature of OSDM. Even the brief, organ interludes do much to unsettle the average listener with their insidious dirges.
Critiques: There's certainly general room for growth and innovation, but it's a strong and focused effort for a debut.
The Verdict: I feel like I've been simultaneously beaten with claw hammers and stabbed by thousands of little shivs. Thus is the aesthetic of Superstition. This New Mexico band has an opportunity to take over the underground blackened death metal scene with their menacing solos and blunt force approach. Help them make this a reality by sharing this with everyone you know.
