Dipygus - S/T


There is something to be said for truly wicked, twisted and heavy bottom scraping death metal. Such is the magic of Dipygus. Their new self titled album is an absolute monsterpiece, a crushing record that revels in all of the death metal dungeon wizardry. This is a record that consistently speaks to the triumphant evil of the underground and which makes it hard to look away from. This is a triumphant and hectic car crash of a release, a record that indulges in its misery and seems to only push for every darker sonic pastures. There is no sense of higher artistry here, only crushing death metal riff after crushing death metal riff, slowly choking you out.

Dipygus is not for the faint of heart, it's gut grinding death metal of the filthiest degree. Their is something wonderfully vintage about what Dipygus does here. Their obsession with grinding nineties death metal is hard to deny and it speaks to the crippling power of what they consistently unveil. While the sound is certainly alienating for those not already possessed with a morbid fascination with death, Dipygus is just what the doctor ordered for those of us who are constantly searching for this kind of primitive grinding death metal. Malodorous and retro, Dipygus make no pretense, this is crusty, basement banished death metal that only the obsessed will love, but by god will we love it! 

Pre-order the album!
