Cyanic - Litanies of Lust Unholy


From: USA
Year: 2012
Genre: Blackened Death/Grind

If, before you press play, you don't prepare yourself for the relentless sonic assault that these guys are about to unleash on your ass, don't say i didn't warn you. And while i'm obviously aware that i put "blackened death/grind" next to genre, don't bother trying to define this band. I mean, what was i supposed to write? Thrashing blackened brutal death/grind? This is like aural hate mail to the history of extreme music, sans Doom, because they simply don't have the inclination to slow down and take a break from punishing your eardrums. At breakneck speed they cycle through all these genres with technical precision without ever submitting to self indulgent wankery. As much as i'd love to sit here and extol all the virtues of this awesome album, i have shit to do today. If you are a fan of just about any form of extreme music I can't see you not enjoying this album. Support at Bandcamp.
