Funeral Rites 8. Empire Of the Damned 9. The Curse Bestial Devastation Antichrist Necromancer Warriors Of Death Satanic and morbid occultist imagery pervade the lyrics and composition of this release, which in the style which bands from Havohej to Beherit and Darkthrone employ, subjugates the ridiculous to serve the abstracted lifestyle determinations the visions of mythos and living mysticism evoke. Sathanas invoke to destroys!!
Bestial Devastation!!! It's worth it. In the liner pictures, the band wore makeup at one point that can be considered proto-corpsepaint. Probably Wagner's doing. What an EP! When I listened to it few years ago I was amazed, astonished and completely shocked. Neither Kreator, nor Sodom or Hellhammer and Possessed. This is pure decomposition. It has been said by Max that once they walked into the studio they were more or less 16 years old and in Brazil there were no good studios to record a metal album, and for sure no good ones to record death metal!
The mid-paced parts are made by single notes and so, very simple and doom. Max's vocals are not completely thrash but more focused on death metal tonalities with a raw-Cronos touch. The drums sound is very raw, especially the bass drum.
This is total rawness with no compromise semi blast beats! The refrain has been made to be shouted to death. The solos are a total mess…in a mixture of shreds, whistles with hyper under produced sound…simply great! The song is more canonical thrash with the unfailing, rotten down tempo and even a better solo made of tapping parts! Overall, this is a piece of primordial death metal history and a must for any old school metalhead.
I like necro stuff!! This is a piece of history. Released inthere was nothing around this fast, or with riffs this brutal. Seven Churches by Possessed comes sortve close, but only because it had growling vocals. Bathory was probably the only band around this time that was as brutal, but they were in Sweden. The riffs are somewhat simpler occasionally. There are also a few crunching mid paced breaks and intros definitley influenced by Celtic Frost. The solos are pretty typical noise solos for Death Thrash bands around the time, and quite good for a band that had just started.
This EP is also probably the first recorded example of the blast beat in metal, on the song "Antichrist". So the first metal blast beat was on "Antichrist". So on to the album sound. Production qualities are quite raw. In a listenable way, but still raw. Very good production. The bass is once The Curse - Sepultura - Morbid Visions / Bestial Devastation (Cassette) lost in the mix but whatever, same in almost every other metal band. Guitars are dark, evil, and The Curse - Sepultura - Morbid Visions / Bestial Devastation (Cassette) Fast, low register tremolo picked riffs similar to Slayer, but with a much more vicious guitar tone.
It is almost chainsaw like, not quite Entombed quality, but close. Guitars are excellent. The drums are simple, but fast, The Curse - Sepultura - Morbid Visions / Bestial Devastation (Cassette), and done quite well, and as mentioned before, a blast beat does appear in the song "Antichrist". Not much double bass drum use, but overall the simple drumming does an excellent job at maintaining the brutality. The Curse - Sepultura - Morbid Visions / Bestial Devastation (Cassette) vocals are a raspy shout that is almost a growl, but not quite.
Still probably the fourth harshest vocals for 1. Done very well. The only thing i dont like about this EP is the intro, "The Curse".
It sounds like somebody crapily trying to growl some evil nonsense. Quite stupid, but it has a humour value to it. Kindve sounds like the Cookie Monster The songs are mostly all The Curse - Sepultura - Morbid Visions / Bestial Devastation (Cassette), with occasional mid paced breaks and intros. The best song is probably "Necromancer" for having the best riffs and some nice mid paced sections. However every single one of these songs is good. Really freaking awesome Death Thrash.
Check it out especially if you like Reign In Blood era Slayer. Months prior tae recordin wha wad eventually acome the Bestial Devastation EP, the baund decidit tae switch thair leerics frae Portuguese tae Inglis.
