Featuring members of Triumvir Foul and Witch Vomit, Dagger Lust play ugly, underground black metal that’s been further polluted with murky grindcore and barbed noise. It’s relentlessly nasty and completely unwholesome. Continue reading
I like Triumvir Foul. I like Triumvir Foul a lot. Their debut release An Oath of Fire and Blood was something quite notable, but then they went and unleashed their monstrous self-titled debut album that was on another level entirely. Continue reading
Triumvir Foul’s first release, An Oath of Blood and Fire, was a blistering taste of the band’s Old-School Death Metal, and on this full-length they expand upon this early filthy promise.
It’s cold, it’s evil, and it’s fucking dark; it’s Triumvir Foul. One of the things I enjoy about this band is the aura of malignant darkness that they produce so well. They just seem to bleed malevolence and grim atmosphere. There’s no gimmicks, it’s just filthy, evil, Old-School Death Metal that’s positively rabid in its hunger for your soul.
For a band like this it would be too easy to just stick to the slow tempos and let the morbid atmospheres do the work, but thankfully they don’t take the easy route; they throw in some higher speed parts and some blast beats and yet still, amazingly, manage to sound nasty and sinister.
This is some top quality work from Triumvir Foul. Such a murky, corrupt sound should always be praised and Triumvir Foul have some damn good songs to go along with the vile atmospheres too.
Very highly recommended.
At just under 16 minutes in length this is a decent taster for the band that comprises 3 original songs and an Autopsy cover.
This is blistering Old-School Death Metal with a filthy disposition and vocals that sound like Satan gargling acid.
The putrid riffs and disgusting vocals combine to ensure that these tracks deliver the goods and at the end of the playing time you’re left wondering what just happened and why you feel soiled and sullied.
Grime-ridden guitar leads and solos are included for that extra bit of rotten flavour and the band successfully create a miasma of pestilence and sickness wherever they go.
It’s only a demo, and even though the sound could do with a few sonic tweaks here and there it’s still a great representation of a band who clearly know their style and intend to dominate it.
One to check out for sure.
