ANCIENT CRYPTS
ANCIENT CRYPTS
Devoured By Serpents
(Iron Bonehead Productions)
20:04min

Chilean Death Metal - you rule! Once again another gem from this brooding scene hits us and while the band members Nyarlathotep (vocals, guitars) and Cristobal (drums) are also active in INVINCIBLE FORCE and UNAUSSPRECHLICHEN KULTEN the typical scene-incest has not affected the musical quality in any way. Offering four tracks of dark often doomy traditional Death Metal this professionally produced tape is simply flawless material for lovers of ASPHYX, early IMMOLATION. Actually, whereas the vocals nod to Van Drunen a plenty, some lower growls and riffing not present in the Dutch legend's sound and rather inspired by the 90s American school add a welcomed touch of diversity and the overall heaviness grabs you by the balls in a split second. "Devoured By Serpents" certainly is not mind-blowingly new or sets the genre on fire with an inferno of inspiration yet its dedication and sinister feeling convinced me immediately and there is potential enough to make me wish for more tunes from these South American warriors A S A P!
