EP Review: Ensanguinate – Entranced by Decay (Emanzipation Productions)

Ensaguinate is Slovenia’s entry into the death metal grimoire of old, performing sinister sounds inspired by Possessed, Morbid Angel, Grotesque and Nihilist, along with a somber tinge of black metal.

The mission statement behind Ensanguinate is to play death metal with an occult 80’s atmosphere that adheres to the original morbid vision of the genre before it experienced mainstream appeal. All of these traits are encapsulated within the group’s debut EP, “Entranced by Decay”, that will be released by Emanzipation Productions on May 14th, 2021.

Sickeningly heavy, filthy and rotted, Ensaguinate go digging into the graveyard of old-school death metal for their sound. Pulling out putrid and disease-ridden inspiration and spitting blood, guts and bile into the ears of everyone who should stumble across Entranced by Decay.

Playing at a blistering speed that has a thrashy edge, the growling riffs and guttural vocals make for an undeniable death metal listen. From the moment they burst forth, eyes burning with fire and let rip with the nasty sound of Ghoul Presence to the bulbous and pus-filled finale of Untended Graves, Scattered Remains. Ensaguinate rage and rage hard.


A strong debut.
