Today, Blood Harvest Records announces May 14th as international release date for a four-way split album among Blood Spore , Coagulate , Soul Devourment , and Gutvoid on 12" vinyl format.
Following last year’s cult four-way split with Perpetuated , Oxalate , and Vivisect courtesy of Blood Harvest , Blood Spore continue their ascent as one of the death metal underground’s hottest bands with their opening nine-minute epic “Olfactory Cordycipitaceae Ingress.” Utterly lurking, hulking dread, their aptly titled track here simmers with ungodly tension before building into a slipstreaming vortex.
Coagulate follow with their own nine-minute epic, “Up from the Vats (Coalescence of Metamorphic Human Flesh Within a Gelatinous Fetal Stew).” Likewise aptly titled, if not more so, Coagulate indeed coagulate with subterranean filth underpinned by a primitive pulse that takes obscene shapes as the track twists its innards.
Soul Devourment sport a spot-on moniker, and here offer “Veneration of the Ascended.” Their track kicks into a grimy gallop and proceeds to slaughter on command, going from slam to high speed with preternatural ease, opening and also closing with eerie feedback.
Climactically concluding the split is Gutvoid
, who caused quite a stir with Blood Harvest
’s release of their Astral Bestiary
debut EP and subsequent digital single. Going from strength to strength, Gutvoid
further finesse their spiraling, sorta-cosmic death with haunting leads across “Murmurations from Twilight Bodies,” itself an epic at nearly eight minutes.
Totaling 32 terror-inducing minutes, this four-way split among underground death metal’s most promising new hordes shows exactly where the slime live!
