CASTLEUMBRA
CASTLEUMBRA
Cthulu Wgah'nal Fntagn
(Nuclear Winter Records)
19:40min

CASTLEUMBRA is a new project of Antimo, the Mexican jack-of-all-trades who should be well known from bands such as DEMONIZED, HACAVITZ, PROFANATOR, BLOOD REAPING, DOMAIN, DISGORGE, RAVAGER and some more. I'm into a few of his projects but CASTLEUMBRA is definitely his best work so far. This is dark bestial Death Metal at its best. Damn it, this is so fuckin' brilliant, I'm totally blown away by the intensity of this recording. I always have said that the Chtulhu mythos is more than suitable for dark and brutal Death Metal and CASTLEBRUMBRA is here to proof my thesis. The combination of over the top obscure and brutal compositions with haunted demonic vocals combined with a Lovecraftian lyrical theme resulted in an utterly dark, sinister and twisted mood. "Cthulu Wgah'nal Fntagn" contains two short atmospheric intros / instrumentals and three unholy compositions of varied brutal old fashioned Death Metal with a wide range of speed, obscurity and brutality. The band knows how to blast, how to produce heaviness by slowing down and how to create gloomy and blasphemous hymns. And this is what Death Metal is all about, isn't it? CASTLEUMBRA absolutely does not sound like a Mexican band, this is Death Metal like it was played in Finland 20 years ago. There are reminiscences of DEMILICH, ABHORRENCE and DEMIGOD, especially the weird guitar leads and harmonies reminds me now and then of mighty DEMILICH. But also fans of US bands such as FUNEBRARUM (they definitely share the same sources of inspiration), DISMA and the likes should check out those Mexicans. Doubtlessly this is one of the best debut releases I've ever listened to. All hails to Nuclear Winter Records for releasing this mighty monument of obscure Death Metal supremacy!!! Can't wait for future releases from those Mexican beasts. I'm sure their full-length will kill. "Cthulu Wgah'nal Fntagn" is a must have for any self respected Death Metal lover and Cthulhu worshipper. "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!" http://soundcloud.com/galeria-de-muerte/castleumbra, www.nuclearwinterrecords.com
