Perversion - Dies Irae

Dies Irae
by Ricardo Casagrande at 07 December 2022, 5:49 AM

Perversion began in 2008 and had their first demo in 2009 titled Metal is Death. After that, they put out split albums and two more demo’s in 2011 but it wasn’t until 2013 for them to release a full length offering called Storm of Evil. The next few years were riddled with two more, three track demo’s, before they put out an EP in 2020 called Archaic Death Metal. The band have built a reputation for a kick to the face, straight forward thrash metal with an aggressive death metal rage that engages multiple genres.

The album starts off with a cinematography like piece of music before descending into madness with the track “Baghaved Genocide”. The track is pure and raw with technical tendencies, a release of aggression from beginning to end. The vocals are impressive on the track and the album in general as they have a forced howl that seems to be easily sustained at will. The guitars are active and pushing the tempo and include a really solid soaring solo. The drums open up the next track “Decapitation” and are a decimating influence within the song. For the majority of the songs there seems to be a constant motion to the music, not much time wasted or slow playing the track which gives you a feeling that it is what the band is all about. “Axioms of Domination” is a top track on the release for me. The band creates a solid melody around an electric pace, with chunky guitars and lighting fast rolls the song is a solid death metal banger.

Barbaric Execution” is a fitting name for this track as it is a barbaric assault on your senses with devastating precise drums and tremored guitars. The low demonic growls haunt the track and the tempo changes are very well done given that they happen within ultra fast guitar work. It is the placement of varied riffs and tempos that give you the sense of strong song writing on this track. “Migration Into Darkness” follows the path that has been laid by the previous tracks by capturing the descent into madness. There is not much more to be said that hasn’t already been said, you get what you get and that is that. The drums are thunderously formed to create a lightning fast pace for the guitar and bass to work with, while the screeching and soaring lead guitar creates layers of sound.

Fans of pure speed death metal that have not yet been introduced to the band will be huge fans of this release. It is a none stop ride generating a massive sound that can not be ignored. Though fans of a little more variety to the song structures may feel like they get lost between the tracks and that they blend together, the writing is on the wall with these guys and there is no denying it. In terms of technical death metal, this is a very good album that holds nothing back.
