Wallow Within Terrifying raw black/death. It either comes crawling up to you or shatters you into a thousand pieces. Despite the overwhelming chaos I can tell these guys can actually play their instruments. There is even a slight blend of groove here and there. FFO Teitanblood, Altarage, Sacrilegious Impalement.

Ave Acer Mors Unholy fuck this shit rips. This tape totally blew me away; it's unrelenting savagery and malevolence from front to back. The production is great too, giving this music a solid, heavy feel that drips pure hate. Listening to Malefic Levitation will make you want to go berserk in an unquenchable blood rage, and I can't wait until these guys put out a full length. Favorite track: Savage Hunter.
Intro/Abyss 00:20

The band name sums it up: malefic and fucking levitating black/death madness from the bowels of hades. Fresno CA-based Malefic Levitation's debut demo/EP is an incinerating onslaught of bestial and pestilent war metal that is shockingly savage and unremittingly barbaric as it unfolds its malevolent spires upon the listener. Bringing together the structurally imploding and collapsing chaos of black/death stalwarts like Revenge, Archgoat, and Diocletian, and the most vile forms of grindcore, Malefic Levitation have created an instant classic in the realm of the most overwhelmingly violent strains of extreme metal, and birthed a sonic abomination whose feral ferocity is matched solely by its unforgiving cruelty.
