There’s been some amazingly crafted death metal releases of 2022 that I keep coming back to on a daily basis and it seems to me that Pacific Northwest’s Triumvir Foul are back with a pulsing vengeance to create the third full-length recording of Onslaught To Seraphim which is handled by both Invictus Productions and Vrasubatlat. After releasing two full-lengths and a EP in 2019, this band have not only created the most violent, calculated and punishing albums they’ve done to date but they’re surely on their way to make the underground extreme music community loud and proud and Onslaught To Seraphim is so damn good that you never want to get bored of it front to back. The best way I can describe their signature sound is if you were to take elements of war metal melodies, death doom soundscapes and a raw, grindy and occultism theme style of death metal this is what Triumvir Foul is all about.
After releasing 2019’s fantastic EP of Urine Of Abomination, feasts upon the eyes of slaughtering innocent angels and summoning disgusting like beasts to forge a war into their own carnal demise with hatred, blasphemy and of course, corruption. These tracks are filled with such anguish power forcing the listener to be strapped into a much more cataclysmic, cavernous and descending themselves in a world full of destruction that these songs are containing with such filth, disease and the indigestible nature of divine source material giving the members of Triumvir Foul the finest creation they’ve ever sounded to be. Just when you hear songs being as possessed by a gesture profound such as Slither of Corruption (The Demise of the Three Serpents), Bašmu Enthralled, Horned Creations and Flesh Diocese making the skies ever so blackened and yet abrasive really matches the glorification and septicameic defiance which pushes these songs to give it a fetishistic violence approach which really perfectly captures the theme of this album so remarkably well done.
Everything aside from the arcane, atmospheric and cavernous decay styled vocals to commendable and apocalyptic blast beat sections from the drums and guitars providing a savage, brutalized tonality finds these members their finest achievements into making Onslaught To Seraphim the harshest, hard-hitting and nihilistic tantrum sounding albums they’ve done to date. If you want your death metal to be filled with dissonance, brutality and a malevolent, murky sounding of extreme music then look no further into Onslaught To Seraphim.
Overall Score: 8.5/10
