Emerging from Denver, Colorado’s fruitful metal scene, Angelic Desolation is ready to take the world by storm…. Or slit throats in the name of Satan, whichever opportunity comes first. The band’s combination of grind, thrash, and death metal, paired with outrageous horror-themed stage antics, makes for a musical presentation that audiences won’t soon forget.
Dubbing their sound “American Razorgrind,” Angelic Desolation released their debut EP Evilgasm in 2014. This was followed by the 2018 full-length Rumpus Time is Over and now the Quorum Of Unspeakable Curses EP. Released on the 25th September 2020.
It’s a short offering from Angelic Desolation but one that has a ton of impact thanks to the unbridled ferocity of the two new tracks. As well the band also delivering a stellar cover of Decapitated’s Names. Before that though, it’s the devastation caused by Cyborg Vampire and Necropotamus. The former is a vehemence-filled taste of grind speed, thrashy riffs and death viciousness. The latter, sickening in just how rough and guttural it sounds. A pairing for fans of disgustingly savage metal to chow down on.
Wrapping up the EP is the afore-mentioned cover of Decapitated’s Names and Angelic Desolation certainly do it justice.
