EPIDEMIA
EPIDEMIA
Leprocomio
(Satanath Records)
35:26min

EPIDEMIA's second album is a very aggressive affair, with massive production that enhances all the power of their relentless Death Metal. The most evident reference, for you to have an idea, is probably CANNIBAL CORPSE... with touches of other really aggressive stuff like VOMITORY or DEICIDE. But they have their particular sound, probably because of the very brutal vocalist that intones those Spanish words as if he were about to coldly flay you alive. The ferocity we have come to expect of South American bands shows, and indeed listening to this album it seems that extreme musical violence is truly the supreme objective of EPIDEMIA. Listen to the merciless onslaught of tracks like 'Cadaveres Poseídos' (possessed corpses) or 'Existencia Repulsiva'... or any one, really. You also get a good idea about what the lyrics are about from titles such as these. The cover artwork doesn't leave you much to wonder about as well, with zombies, corpses, fucked up creatures inside sci-fi glass containers in the middle of decrepit ruins... all with that 90s oil-painting tradition (the Painter software is truly a beautiful thing). If you are looking for the more extreme Death Metal you can find, yet without forfeiting technique and production, you can't do much better than this.
