Why: Because Body Void whips ass, obviously, and it turns out so do Graboids and Pillar of Light
Atrocity Machine is a revelation – an evolutionary leap forward for a band that has essentially a perfect discography prior to this album.
There is genuinely never a dull time on this album.
I’m a pretty huge fan of the band’s output to date, but this track tops the pile for me.
When leagues of black metal and sludge bands continue to narrow themselves into smaller and smaller niches in genres that are already well-trodden, sometimes a band scrambles the assumptions of genre enough to keep everything interesting. Rorcal is one such band.
Solar Temple is an absolute monster, a fantastic start for this new band, and another dark gem in the Transcending Obscurity list of releases.
These six tracks hit much like the sledgehammer in the hands of the Punisher in season 2 of that show – violently and repeatedly, with devastating effect.
The albums that hit you this hard are few and far between, but the Finnish trio give us another worthy entry.
This one is a face-ripper!
