Deeply mesmeric compositions drew us each into the depths of our souls, to the most contemplative layers, where we experienced epiphanies which are hard to put into words.
Death metal with a grindy sound, but not the grind speed. Nasty riffs that I’m pretty sure could actually cut you if you listen too closely. A nice mid-paced groove that gets the ole noggin’ banging. What’s not to like?
This album is a much needed throat punch to the decadence and oppression of modern society. Plus, it absolutely rips!
Detroit and thrash metal are a natural pairing. It follows that the city responsible for some of the loudest and fastest cars ever made would produce human beings with a propensity for loud and fast music.
The key ingredient on this darkly majestic album is riffs.
…it’s low-fi powerviolence in the style of California bands like Despise You but done up Detroit style, with all the added filth, fury, and weirdo tech-y sounds that the Dirty D would bring to such a table.
Think tearing yourself apart while still conscious, blood dripping, brain exposed, yeah, the death metal works.
Take note sludge fans. With Benthic, 1000 Yard Stare join the pantheon of the greats of the genre.
