Dismemberment - Arc Of Ancients

It's hard to believe that it's been five years since Dismemberment's full length debut. On their second record, Arc Of Ancients the band unveil the next logical step of their sound. It's impressive stuff. The Ohio wrecking crew has crafted something far more dynamic than their first record and preceding litany of splits and demos might have led you to expect. The overall execution on Arc Of Ancients is delicious and while there certainly are limitations, this is overall a very strong set of death metal songs.

While I wasn't necessarily expecting so much Carcass worship I won't say that I don't like it. In fact, the Heartwork-esque riffage on a track like Once Forsaken speaks to just how far these guys have come as players. The angular playing on a track like A Path Beyond speaks to a Death influence, as does much of the vocal delivery .That being said, these guys make a point of not aping the old gods. While there is clearly a lot of love for early 90s death metal here, Dismemberment are not afraid to bring in more modern ideas. In some ways this is sort of a early 90s death metal record done through a 2019 lens.

The straightforward attack of Arc Of Ancients is a lot of fun. This is a band who clearly understand what they want to do and have taken half a decade to create some of the best death metal they could possibly create. There is a methodical approach here that is admirable. everything was clearly thought out and put together for maximum sonic impact. Dismemberment have used this album to show there is a lot more to the new wave of OSDM than meets the eye, and if you're not ready to hit the pit, you best get going.

  1. Great Mother is Real... I am Aisha Kun and i want to testify about Great Mother how she cured me of hiv aids. I was diagnosed of this disease some time ago and i was worried. when i was searching the internet looking for a cure, i came across some testimonies of Great Mother how she has helped a lot of people and i decided to contact her on her info and explained to her. She laughed and told me that she will help me and i was surprised. She sent me the cure and it was a spiritual holy oil and water which is more than a medicine. She directed me on how to take it and i did. I took the cure for 3 weeks and i went to the doctor for check up and to my greatest surprise the disease was no longer in my system.

  2. When I found Dr. OKISIN I was desperate in need of bringing my ex lover back. He left me for another woman. It happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. He just dumped me after 3 years with no explanation. I contact Dr. OKISIN through his Whats app number +2348109374702  and He told me me what i need to do before he can help me and i did what he told me to, after i provided what he wanted, he cast a love spell to help us get back together. Shortly after he did his spell, my boyfriend started texting me again and felt horrible for what he just put me through. He said that I was the most important person in his life and he knows that now. We moved in together and he was more open to me than before and then he started spending more time with me than before. Ever since Dr. OKISIN helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. I highly recommends Dr. OKISIN to anyone in need of help.
