Formed in 2012 from Rome, Lazio Italy, Devangelic are a Italian brutal death metal band that’s been cooking up some disgusting, brutalizing and gory style of extreme music. Now being signed with Willowtip Records, Ersetu is the latest offering from Devangelic and is the follow-up to 2017’s Phlegethon which was my first introduction to this band. Musically, Devangelic borrows heavy influences from Disentomb, Disgorge, Embodied Torment and Back Door to Asylum which takes their style for brutal death metal into a submissive, ruthless and mental festivities that submerges into a manifested and infested world that’s circling every corner, step and songs provided within the album’s lyricism.
From blast beat drums, grotesque vocals, thick guitars and monstrous complements of death metal institutions, this album created a force that’s enjoyable, substantial, sentimental and very well interpreted. When you get blistering tracks such as Embalmed in Visceral Fluids, Sigils of Fallen Abominations, and Eyes of Abzû you’re gonna get brutal death metal fuses of originality and primitive signatures that’s wonderfully engaging. So crank up the volume, grab your torches and head bang uncontrollably because Devangelic are back with a redemption and marked a path so chaotic that this is what these Italians have been stirring pots for quite sometime now. For fans of Condemned, Infecting The Swarm and Septycal Gorge this is another brutal death metal treat you cannot sleep on.
Overall Score: 9.0/10
