EP Review: Deorc Absis – The Nothingness Transfiguration (Redefining Darkness Records)

Deorc Absis hears the breath of the oppressed creature and screams against all kinds of material and spiritual subjugation. Crafted in 2016 by members of Italian brutal death metal acts Logic Of Denial and Sickening, Deorc Absis gathers around a black metal aesthetic without forgetting its own stylistic origins, moving through Deathspell Omega’s revolutionary speech and death metal vehemence.

The Nothingness Transfiguration will be released on May 31st via Redefining Darkness Records.



Deorc Absis don’t give us much on this EP in regards to tracks but they certainly don’t let us down when it comes to wild sounding blackened death metal. The foulness of the vocals being regurgitated up while the guitars and drums sound off angry noise. Stasis would be perfectly fine if it wasn’t for the gothic oddness that crops up on occasion throughout it. It doesn’t sound great and really doesn’t fit with the fast and heavy noise that is produced.

Not the best start, it is expanded upon with Epanastasis and while the metal rhythm is banging here, every time that gothic effect comes up, it just sucks the life out of the song. I really don’t like it.

Finally we have Metamorphosis and it’s more of the same. Hyper blackened death metal, the kind that loosens the bowels. A strong finish.
