SKELETHAL - Interstellar Knowledge Of The Purple Entity (12" MLP)
France | Death
Hot on the heels of their critically acclaimed Deathmanicvs Revelation debut, released earlier this year by IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS, French death metal cult SKELETHAL return with another new MLP, Interstellar Knowledge of the Purple Entity. Once again, the duo's aim is plainly stated - absolute DEATH WORSHIP - and once again, they wield the Metal of Death like a scythe, an axe, and blunt hammer simultaneously, all in obeisance to occult forces beyond the mien of man. Here on Interstellar Knowledge of the Purple Entity, however, SKELETHAL's rumbling, roiling tank-tread of a sound drives deeper into the catacombs, deeper into death metal's past. In many ways, one could hear this MLP and be forgiven for thinking it was originally released in 1991, so studied and authentic is its ancient crunch. Then again, SKELETHAL exude their own personality, and continue to expand it here with a respect toward traditions - including a gutsfucking cover of Carnage's "Torn Apart." And so continues the story of modern death metal's brightest new hopes...
