Heavily inspired by the history of controversy, Repulsive Vision is a relentless assault of punk fuelled old school death metal in the vein of Carcass, Napalm Death and Benediction. Formed in 2010, this vicious four-piece style is straight to the point and unapologetic, soaked in a punk-like aesthetic, while maintaining the emphasis on extreme metal composition.
After their debut album “Look Past The Gore And See The Art”, released in 2017, the Cumbrian four-piece is now back with its second full-length, “Necrovictology”, released on August 21st on CD, vinyl and digital formats by Emanzipation Productions.
It’s time to start paying attention to Repulsive Vision. It’s time to start acknowledging that they’re part of the ‘new’ school of death metal. A band that pays homage to the heady days of the past greats but are also forging their own intensity driven path. One that has the spirit of punk (short and very pointed), one eye on thrash and two feet firmly planted in the mire of extreme.
13 tracks might seem like a bit too much but that’s certainly not the case as several barely brush the 3 minute mark. Repulsive Vision like to keep things fast, passionate and furious. The likes of Exterior of Normality, Blind Loyalty, Selfless and Regret leaving the brain feeling like mush. These are just a handful of examples of when these noise-mongers show little restraint.
Although, that’s not to say they’re not absolutely smashing it on the longer and more involved efforts too. With Other Than Divine, Draconian Reprisals, Nepotism-Social Chameleon and To Delve the Depths we get a chance to really get down and dirty with Repulsive Vision.
If you like riffs capable of flaying flesh, percussion capable of grinding bones to dust and vocals capable of slicing the soft bits into pieces, then Necrovictology will be your jam.
