Depravity - Grand Malevolence

There's really something to be said for straight suffocation worship. The bands that lean into tend to be gloriously brutal, embracing disgusting slam riffs and leaving listeners feeling like their skull was just caved in. At least that's the impression I get from the masterful Grand Malevolence by Depravity due out December 4th on the always excellent Transcending Obscurity. This band is a potent and destructive force. Their allegiance to the old masters of death metal is clear and it makes for some truly thrilling listening. 

I think what gets me about this record is how nicely its structured. Yes there are a lot of moments that are just there for the sake of being heavy but they are nicely counterbalanced and timed in a way that makes for compelling listening. Perhaps the best example of this is the track 'Trophies Of Inhumanity' which places an emphasis both on the bands stellar execution of technical and terrifying riffs but also surprisingly tasteful atmospherics. The use of timbre here is impressive and it shows us that Depravity are much more than just Australian meatheads. They are Australian meatheads who know about arpeggios!

The super tight and devastating assault of Depravity is sure to capture the imagination and routinely speaks to just how good this band is. The playing is creative and the ideas devastating. The general approach never ceases to remind me just how talented Depravity are and how well they can execute at the highest levels. This is slamming death metal as it was meant to be, aggressive, evil and over the fucking top. Delve into the magic today and experience the pure bitter rage of a band devoted to grinding bones to dust.

  1. My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle.
