Echelon are one of those death metal supergroups who make death metal nerds squeal with joy but who have more than enough to keep death metal nerds excited and in love with the possibilities that this music presents. The brutal grooves and punishing assault of their latest offering, the almighty The Brimstone Aggrandizement is the sort of Old School Death Metal that clearly gives no fucks but instead revels in the murk, forcing you to embrace the sheer darkness this music has to offer and reminding us of the cynical realities of the world around us.
The raw and vibrant energy of Echelon makes their music strangely addictive, as do the relatively short eight tracks. It means that The Brimstone Aggrandizement is an easy and straightforward listen that crunches forward without giving a single fuck. It means that the bands trademark stomp will capture your imagination and there willingness to dive into balls out and destructive riffs with powerful solos will crush your fucking teeth in. The Brimstone Aggrandizement is an album that reminds us of all that we love about classic death metal but which also has the nervous energy that keeps the genre viable.
Echelon know how to fucking tear it up and they stomp forward with the same swagger that has made this genre the sirens call for so many over the years. The Brimstone Aggrandizement is a release that presses hot coals into your skull and conjures demons straight into your brain. Rather than pussified clean vocals and hyper technical riffs The Brimstone Aggrandizement deals in straight death and will fuck your skull into oblivion. This is death metal at its finest, over the top and ready to feast on your sweet flesh.
