Quick Reviews: Swine Overlord, Arkodaemik, Curseworship & Asmodey

swine overlordSwine Overlord’s debut album “Parables of Umbral Transcendence” is within the vein of Malodorous, Infant Annihilator and Splattered Entrails. Just that nasty brutal death metal that sounded like it was recorded in a buddies bedroom. Nasty production but it adds to the overall effect of the disgusting and sinister vibe these guys put out. Filled with drum groove, slam riffs and gutturals that would melt the face off of your dear ol grandma. 4 out of 5

Barely adding anything besides the one “instrument”, the music is bleak and soulless. Some of my favorite drone albums are typically emotional and it usually hits you hard with things that make you think but No Paris’ latest album is just dull.
