Abhorrent Deformity – Entity of Malevolence (Review)

Abhorrent DeformityThis is the début album from US Brutal Death Metal band Abhorrent Deformity.

With an album cover that lets you know exactly what the band are going to sound like, Abhorrent Deformity proceed to brutalise you with 35 minutes of powerful USDM for fans of Cannibal Corpse, Suffocation, Deeds of Flesh, Dying Fetus, Defeated Sanity, Severe Torture, etc., as well a s touch of a more modern approach to some of the riffs, somewhat akin to Molotov Solution.

Savagely deep grunts are unrelenting in their vocal attack. The singer has a classic Deathgrowl that’s quite satisfying and utterly guttural, (say that five times fast).

Entity of Malevolence is ugly, brutal, full of blast beats and has just enough chug-and-squeal to be pleasing without getting boring. I imagine that some may have had their fill of this style and might want more from a Death Metal band in 2015, but it’s hard to complain when the band stamp a boot on your throat and knife your insides.

These songs use a good combination of speed and heaviness with which to beat the listener into submission. It’s music that’s not for everyone by any means, but then Brutal Death Metal never is. If you favour the style though, Abhorrent Entity play it with a purity and honesty that I haven’t heard in quite a while.

Definitely one for all fans of brutality, everywhere.
