Reptilian Death/The Dawn Of Consummation And Emergence/Old School Metal Records/2013 CD Review

  Reptilian Death  are  a  band  from India  that  plays  a  very brutal  and  technical  form  of  death  metal  with  elements  of  grindcore  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2013  album  "The  Dawn Of  Consummation  And  Emergence"  which  was  released by  Old  School Metal Records.

  "PrimEvil"  begins with  heavy  guitar riffs,  drums,  distortion  and  deep  growls  along  with  some  melodic  riffing  as  well  as  a  brief  use  of  high  pitched  screams and  serves as  an  intro  for  the  album.

  "Ichoate" begins  with  heavy  guitar riffs  and  drums  which  lead  to  some  death  metal  growls  and  blast  beats  and  the  song  goes  more  into  a  mid  paced direction  shortly  after  that  while  also  returning  to  fast  parts  at certain  times  along  with  a  small  amount  of  spoken  word  parts.

  "Stimulate  Hike  Impel Tear"  begins  with  heavy  guitar  riffs  and  high  pitched screams  which  leads  to  some  blast  beats  and  growls  before  slowing  down and  switching back  and  forth  between  slow  and  fast  parts  and  a  minute  later t here  is  brief  use  of  spoken  word  parts  and  the  riffing  also  utilizes  some  melody.

  "Soaked  With  The  Imperfections  Of  Puerile" begins with  some  heavy  and  technical  riffs  along  with some  drums  and  a  few  seconds  later  the  growls  start kicking  in  along  with  some  blast  beats  and  high  pitched  screams  but  focusing  more  on  mid  paced  parts  but  speeding up  in certain  sections.

  "Emerge,  Hatred,  Emerge" begins  with  heavy  guitar riffs,  brutal  drums  and  screams  as  well  as  some  growls  before  going  into  a  faster  direction  as  while  as  adding  other elements  to  the  vocals and  towards  the  end  the  song  goes  into  a  slow  yet  still  heavy direction.

  "Distorted  By  Bondage  Blood  And  Bestiality"  begins  a  spoken  word  part before  going  into  brutal  and  technical  guitar  riffs  and  drums  which  lead  to  some  growls  and  then  the  music  starts  slowing  down  for  awhile  while  also  using  some  blast  beats  in  certain  sections  and  towards  the  end  there  is  a  brief  use  of  high  pitched  screams  and  melodic  riffing.

  "Unnervingly  Perverted  At  The  Altar" begins  with  heavy  guitar riffs,  blast  beats  and  growls   before  slowing  down  and  going  into  a  more  mid  paced  direction  while  also  speeding  up  in  certain  sections  and  adding  in  screams  and  spoken  word  parts.

  "Patchwork And  The  Art  Of  Skinning"  begins  with  some  guitar  riffs  and  drums  before  adding in some  growls,  blast  beats  and  technical guitar  leads  and  then t he song  starts  switching  back  and  forth  between  slow, mid  paced  and  fast  while also adding  in  some  high  pitched  screams  in  certain  sections.

  'O"  begins  with  fast  and  brutal  guitar  riffs,  blast  beats  and  growls  before  going  into  a  more  slow  and  mid  paced  direction  but  also  returning  to  the  faster  parts  at  times  along  with  a  brief  use  of  spoken  word  parts  and technical  guitar  riffing  while  also  leads  to  some  guitar  solos  and  leads  coming  in  for  a  short  time  as well  as  some screams.

  "Now  You  Gaze  Upon  Me" begins  with  a  brief  spoken word  part before  going  into  heavy  guitar  riffs,  drums,  growls  and  screams  and  then the  song  goes  into  a  faster  direction  and  starts  adding  in some  blast  beats  while also  slowing  down  at  times.

  "Marvelous  Gods  -  The  Apple  Of  My  Eye" begins  with  some  melodic  and  technical guitar  leads  along  with  heavy  riffs  and  drums  which  leads  to some  growls  along  with  some  high  pitched  screams  and  blast  beats coming  in  as  well  as  some  thrash  influences  and  towards  the  end  the  music  starts  slowing  down  in  certain  parts.

  "Emergence  -  The  Word  Your  Playground"  begins  with  some  heavy  guitar  riffs  and  drums  before  adding  in some  growls  and  screams  along  with  some  blast  beats  and  faster  riffing  and  after  awhile  the  music  starts  slowing  down  in  certain sections  of  the  song  and  towards  the  end  there  is  a  brief  use  of  melodic  guitar  leads..

  Song  lyrics  cover  gore, violence  and  dark  themes,  while  the  production  has  a  very  strong, powerful,  professional  and  heavy  sound  with  the  bass  guitars  being  mixed  down  low  in  the  mix.  

  In  my  opinion  Reptilian  Death  are  a  very  great  sounding  technical  and  brutal  gore/death  metal  band  and  if  you  are a  fan of  this  musical  genre,  you  should c heck  out t his  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Ichoate"  "Emerge,  Hatred,  Emerge"  "Patchwork And  The  Art  Of  Skinning"  and  "Marvelous  Gods  -  The  Apple  Of  My  Eye". RECOMMENDED  BUY.
