EP Review: Between the Killings – The Killing Quartet Vol. 1 – Reflection of Murder (Comatose Music)

Between The Killings take you inside the warped mind of a killer with the unsettling, unnerving experience of The Killing Quartet Vol. 1 – Reflection of Murder. Featuring current and ex members of Horrific Demise, Gorgasm, Lividity, Colossus, Mortal Decay and Rupture Christ.

Between The Killing will be releasing a series of four EPs, each one expanding on the tale of a serial killer, each one accompanied by a graphic comic bringing the twisted tale to life, with all artwork created by Karl Dahmer (Nunslaughter, Exhumed, Gutalax etc).

Under the scarred, skeletal wing of Comatose Music, Between the Killings will unleash Reflection of Murder on their innocent victims on July 1st, 2022.

Such a bloody and horrific subject matter could only come from the minds of those who play brutal death metal. Music to make you feel a little bit sick, even if your own blood-thirstiness rises upon hearing it.

Coming from an ensemble of ferocious musicians, it’s no surprise that Vol. 1 – Reflections of Murder is intense enough to tear strips of flesh from your body. Featuring 6 tracks of horrifying and heavy noise, Between the Killings embody the mindset of violence, suffering and pain. Resulting in an EP that slams hard enough to break bones and crush spirits.

From the moment we’re introduced via the sounds of someone crying while an eerie melody plays out, there’s no doubting this is going to be a harsh listen. Something that is realised by the unrelenting assault that follows, a cacophony of instruments and guttural vocals, it’s as brutal as brutal death metal gets. Yet, it is so very edifying. Fans of extreme, well constructed and well played extreme, will lap this up.

You don’t have to be a monster to enjoy the horror that Between the Killings unleashes but it probably helps.
