Vomitile - Pure Eternal Hate

Pure Eternal Hate
by Katharine Hassett at 28 July 2018, 3:43 PM

VOMITILE is a death metal band from Cyprus formed by Khatch Yildizian and Panos Larkou. The group first got their feet wet in the summer of 2007, soon releasing their seven song demo in 2009 titled "Rotting Life." After lineup changes and playing shows with the likes of veterans such as SODOM and OBITUARY, the band would release their debut album "Igniting Chaos" in January 2013, and a follow up in late 2014 titled "Mastering the Art of Killing." Following more lineup changes and a tour with KREATOR in support of the aforementioned album, the four piece headed to the studio to record their third full length, "Pure Eternal Hate."

Upon first inspection, the artwork resembles that of the so called "war death metal" genre, most often associated with BOLT THROWER, and the quartets sound also reflects this. "Mass Extermination" wastes no time at all to get to the beatdown, a slamming guitar riff behind a skank beat and raspy screamed vocals. A catchy "chorus" and varying tempos make this an overall powerful opening track. "Pestilation" is a groovy and dissonant assault, littered with blast beats, tremolo picking and murderous lyrics. "Labeled Dead" leaves the listener with no time to breath with a song bordering on brutal death metal.

"Glorify the Insane" employs much of the elements previously mentioned, with speedy, sinister sounding grooves and seamless transitions. "Executioner of Strength" reverses the increasing tempo of the album completely, with stomping, hypnotizing riffage, which is further exemplified on "Nothing But Pain." The stark contrast, bringing order to the chaos, is something that has also done wonders for BOLT THROWER. The throttle is brought back to full on the aggressive, sonically charged penultimate track, "Soulskinner." The album closes as raw and punchy as it began on "Carnal Surgery," another slamming track with melancholic solos that slowly fades out with the title of the song being oft-repeated.

Overall, "Pure Eternal Hate" is exactly as the title implies and while a lot of this is a throwback to other mighty acts of the genre, VOMITILE come into their own on this tantalizingly brutal release of galloping riffage and breakneck speed drumming. The audible screamed vocals make the fitting lyrical content all the more meaningful and you would be remiss to not look into the impressive musicianship found on this record.
