Persecutory 1

Towards the Ultimate Extinction is filled with crushing blackened death metal with some great thrash based riffs & serious rawness to it. Opening with the intense Pillars of Dismay, it’s a hard hitting start with plenty of head-banging riffs. A killer direction change near the end is just outstanding & caps off a fantastic opener.

It’s followed by the title track, coming in at over 11 minutes long. Fast paced, the beat is so good & the vocals immense to listen too. The occasional screams & roars adding layers to an already deep sounding song. Incredibly heavy, it’s got a great drop that just brings in even more crushing riffs & hooks. The 11 minutes fly by in a whirlwind of inventive metal sounds that keeps the heaviness at the core.

Throughout Towards the Ultimate Extinction has a number of standout styles. The echoing shouted vocals, the intense hard-hitting drum beats…there is plenty of invention alongside the furious metal.

Till Relentless Salvation Comes, Along the Infernal Hallways & Awakening the Depraved Era are no screwing around blast of metal. Filth encrusted vocals & constant mind-warping riffs. It’s a non-stop brutal assault, one that is very welcome.

Towards The Ultimate Extinction has a real primal sound & that is showcased perfectly on Hegemony of the Ruinous Impurity. The marching drum beat at the end is hair-raising stuff.

An incredible album ends on one last furious attack, a re-recorded version of an earlier song, Maelstroms of Antireligious Chaos. It’s a great finish to a super-strong blackened death metal release. It’s constant furious heavy noise is appealing & exciting.
