tornado0fnachos The first section of this album will crush your skull. The second section will melt your brain. The last section heals what happened during the first two sections. Favorite track: Opening the Gates to Blasphemic Domination.

Caleb Slay The fretless guitars make for a warped, disorienting sound. One of the better black/death releases this year. Favorite track: Opening the Gates to Blasphemic Domination.

PannionSeer Devastating, furiously paced war metal with a lot of technical guitar and drum work. The production on this is perfect, too--it's not as lo-fi and grainy as a lot of stuff in the genre, but it's not too polished either. Favorite track: Chalice of Conquering Blood.

Christopher Charlot If it’s on Sentient Ruin, you just buy it. The most reliable label for audial decimation. Also Diabolic Oath is fucking head removing.


On their harrowing debut album for Sentient Ruin, Portland OR extreme metal tormentors Diabolic Oath unleash complete hell on earth, unravelling one of the most unnerving and annihilating displays of sonic tyranny to have been vomited out of the West Coast of the United States in recent times. While the influences drawn from bands like Teitanblood, Immolation, and Bestial Warlust help trace a profile, the album remains an enigmatic abhorrence quite hard to fully define or categorize, with its colossal yield of destruction shaped primarily through an unorthodox mastery of the fretless guitar and bass accompanied by a triple and often simultaneous vocal attack, an unusual and free-form approach to the black/death craft which has resulted in an album of almost otherworldly destructive traits. Standing out as a peculiar defining trait are also the album's noticeably decreased tempos and dismal atmospherics which stem from the band's veneration of extreme doom, which, opposed to the intensity and brutality of the execution unmistakably descend from the most violent fringes of war metal, has resulted in an overall sound with tank-like resemblances, colossal and imposing in the form but unrelenting and perpetually perpetrating destruction in the deliverance. Further defining Diabolic Oath's darkened aural cataclysm is the wide array of aberrant philosophical and spiritual projections which permeate the music and become one with it, surfacing via the lyrics and aesthetic to shape a deeply mystical and esoteric abyss of abhorrent inverted transcendence. This juxtaposition of complete sonic cruelty and morbid ritualistic esotericism has made of "Profane Death Exodus" a profoundly transcendental ritual of indissoluble ruin and symbolism that will stand high as one of the most enigmatic and diabolical displays of supernatural sonic terror to be released all year.
