Label: Pathologically Explicit Recordings – PER 090
Released: May 24th, 2017
Style: Brutal Death Metal/Deathcore
Named after the classic Carcass track and just as brutal when it comes to both their music and subject matter, Italians Exhume To Consume release their debut EP Let The Slaughter Begin and blend the technical riffage of Carcass with an even more savage form of slamming death metal. After a spoken word intro of a cannibal cataloging his sinister deeds, Exhume To Consumes vicious metal spews forth into opening cut, the wickedly titled Bon Appetite and the band unleash a torrent of downtuned riffs, tortured rhythms and bloodcurdling vocals. The relative slowness of this opening salvo takes you by surprise initially but only adds to the suspense of the track and its heaviness is unbowed although it gains some speed later on in the track with the addition of some energetic leads but retains its attention to its brutality. At only twelve minutes long , this is a short sharp shock piece of murderous death metal and serves as a great starting point into the world of Exhume To Consume and if their debut album is half as good as this, it will be a truly murderous thing indeed. Recommended for fans of Exhumed, Napalm Death, Impaled, Haemorrhage, Pathologist.
