Hells Headbangers has got to be one of the most expansive and diverse record labels I’ve been able to cover on Metal Purgatory Media for quite sometime and coming from someone who likes a handful of their bands on the roster, I have recently discovered a new band by the name of Cadaveric Incubator and their sophomore album, Nightmare Necropolis. Those unaware of Cadaveric Incubator, these guys been around in the extreme metal scene since 2004 and are residing from Finland which is home to the finest bands in that country from bands such as Sonata Arctica, Archgoat, Beherit, Anal Blasphemy, Krypts and many more to come. To describe Cadaveric Incubator’s music is taking Symphonies of Sickness era of Carcass, Mental Funeral from Autopsy, Slaughtercult by Exhumed and the sickening, blasphemous and death themed style of death metal with elements of grindcore here and there.
This release is incredibly embodiment of loud-hard in your face aggressiveness to have complex and progressive styled structures to keep instrumentals, vocals and production to be formulated and well toned. In terms of the musicianship, skill performance, more precise and diverse instrumentation work to heavily concentrate on thrashing, grinding and stirring the extreme metal arrangements aligned from one another, I can tell you for granted this album is heavy groovy at times and grindy to where I’m almost detecting a Exhumed-esque grindcore melodies and it just works beginning to end. And even though Cadaveric Incubator’s made some demos, splits and one studio full-length, Nightmare Necropolis might just be a taste test and featuring short songs but for a album clocking in roughly half an hour in length, these guys create vicious, catchiness and overall extremities to unleash carnage front to back, you shouldn’t pass it up at all as Nightmare Necropolis should be added in your collection for runner-up album of the year list for 2021.
Overall Score: 8.5/10
