ANALEPSY are a Brutal Death Metal band formed in 2013 from Lisbon, Portugal and play a unique style of Esoteric, Murderous, Alien Life Formed and Si-Fi themed of Brutal Death Metal. Prior to 2015’s Dehumanization by Supremacy, 2017’s full-length album titled Atrocities From Beyond was released on January 27th, 2017 and is the debut full-length from this Portugal outfit. Clocking in around 30:00 and 10 astonishing tracks, Atrocities From Beyond takes the listener on a wild journey into the deepest, steepest, imaginative and offers intense brutality throughout the Album’s conceptual lyricism and confidential craftsmanship these songs simply create creativity, thoughtful songwriting and engaging commitments within the album’s fascinating atmospheres that not only built naturalistic boundaries but keep the musicianship and crafted song variations up to par.
With tracks such as Ferocious Aftermath, Apocalyptic Premonition, Engorged Absorption and Atrocity Deeds, Atrocities From Beyond is a massive improvement over 2015’s EP of Dehumanization By Supremacy which showcases degenerated guitar melodies, disgusted drum fillers, perfected bass tones and visceral/ annihilating vocal deliverance are all mixed wonderfully within the album’s production to create sonic booming arpeggio solos and effective instrumentation are really one of my biggest highlights on the album. Perhaps one of the naturalist compliments on the album is the amount of triumphant confidence which enhances the sound perfectly crystal clear and keeping the musical progressions steady and rhythmical. But Any Brutal Death Metal will be in a surprising treat to hear Analepsy’s Atrocities From Beyond showcasing Slam instrumentals, perpetual cranks of slabbed and pierced heaviness and considerably be highly consisted within the band’s catalog to date. A incredible debut for any fans of extreme music!
Overall score: 8.5/10
