Escarnium are a band from Brazil that has been featured before in this zine and plays an old school form of death metal with a blackened touch and this is a review of their 2016 album "Interitus" which will be released in October by Redefining Darkness Records and Testimony Records.
Spoken word samples start off the album and after the intro t he music goes into more of a faster direction along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats as well as a great amount of death metal growls and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording?
Morbid sounding melodies can be heard in certain sections of the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the solos and leads also bring in more of an old school death metal approach and some of the tracks are long and epic in length and some songs also bring in a slight black metal influence and horror movie samples also return briefly while a later t rack adds in a brief use of clean guitars.
Escarnium creates another recording that remains true to the darker style of death metal from previous recordings, the production sounds very professional while t he lyrics cover misanthropy, decadence and nihilism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Escarnium and if you are a fan of death metal with a blackened touch, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "While The Furnace Burns" "Radioactive Doom" "Genocide Ritual" and "Human Waste". 8 out of 10.
