Texas Murder Crew - Wrapped In Their Blood

Texas Murder Crew
Wrapped In Their Blood
by Craig Rider at 17 June 2022, 1:11 PM

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I am proud to present to you: TEXAS MURDER CREW; signed via Comatose Music, hailing from the United States of America - performing Brutal Death Metal, on their debut full-length studio album entitled: “Wrapped In Their Blood” (released May 20th, 2022). Since formation in 2017-2018 (as EVERYONE’S LAST BREATH), the sextet in question have a demo entitled: “Demo 2018” (released October 26th, 2018), an EP entitled: “Everyone’s Last Breath” (released August 7th, 2020), “Unleashing Echoes Of Iniquitous Torment” (released June 15th, 2021), and this here debut full-length studio album in their discography so far of which I am introduced to. 10 tracks ranging at around 35:17; TEXAS MURDER CREW arrange an intricately designed formula on some heavy-hitting Brutal Death Metal developments.

Opening up with this otherworldly yet ominously menacing shroud of static; this rampantly rompy frenzy barrages eardrums with monolithic snarls while sturdy thuds rumble speakers with reverberating malice within “Wrapped In Their Blood Pt. 1”, while “Murderous Intent” implodes heads with monsterously meaty trembles & slaying grinds in a distorted assimilation of tight rifts amongst a bombastic element in implementing punchy, skyrocking trailblazing which will pierce through heads into a rolling slab of solid seamlessness. Sonically stampeding a dexterously dynamic flicker of thumpy bass audibility from Tim Ratcliff on bass, also shredding wildly rushing ramifications on blast beating but rapidly nimble swiftness and devastating havoc from crunchy strider Kevin Clark, who rips his axe with sulfurous gnarliness in fierce firepower expertise which rivets with rampaging maliciousness. Scouring volatility bulldozes everything in its path with demolition and barbarity, bludgeoning heads with trampling impact and chunky pandemonium which ramifies with ruthless savagery.

“Nocturne Of Evisceration” distills a synthetic pianist hymn from keyboardist Skyler Turner, amongst a frolicking gallop from battering drummer Trevor Scott. Everyone injects an infectiously snarly mobility on riveting synergy, while piledriving furore blasphemously creates a killer laceration on rambunctiously tremoring vehemence while bleeding cords from Mike O’Brian & Brent Wells roar with gruesome gutturals amongst a shouty perseverance on yelling malevolence for all berserkers out there. "Mutual Combat" relentlessly unleashes progressively technical riffage while stompy persistence utilizes versatile blitzkrieg, as amplified adrenaline boisterously bouncies with slamming strength while pugnaciously salubrious smacks & soaring barks bellow with intense evisceration. "Apocalyptic Embludgeonment" belts a clobbering groove-bomb fabrication while smothering systematics rips souls new wounds of mosh pit etiquette in which will make one want to break chairs over other chairs in no time.

"Pareidolia (In Splatter Patterns)" revs up with hybrid experimentation with this outrè panache on malignant mayhem that materialises with brutal bestiality, vibrantly potent calamity and super towering strikes that pursuits with trampling descegration. This razor-sharp maelstrom stability within the "Ritual Disfigurement" swelters rhythmically with oppressive but blistering effect, furiously pummelling & pounding with sinister brutality, amongst a fierce meltdown of murderous songwriting musicianship while immensely hardened core attributes re-invents the wheel with rollicking yet radically wicked flexibilities in fundamental flamboyancies that will subjugate your being into full force but diabolical madness. "3 Feet Deep" continues to pulverize bones into dust with symbolic retribution & rigourous vigour, amongst an evil empowering domination to revel with speedy velocity which crafts a distinctively distinguished armament in riffing mastery while vicious tonalities obliterates you with aggressive headiness which procures this growing addictiveness tenfold.

The last 2 titular parts overall conclude "Wrapped In Their Blood" with beefy conundrums in spectral rebellion, while the first being another intrude but with this wrathful, battering beat that will make anyone go hard rather than home. Bottom line; I am compelled to say that TEXAS MURDER CREW most surely outdone themselves with this one, for a debut offering - this here band have a long road ahead in delivering bashful instrumental chaos which makes this one worth replaying and discovering for sure. Worthy of spinning a good bunch of times, while concrete grittiness surrounds you with beatdown finesse and brisk agility - do check it out, veterans & newcomers will definitely come back for more.
