PENTHOS
PENTHOS
Lifeless Haze
(Visceral Circuitry Records)
19:30min

PENTHOS is a good Death Metal act coming from the UK. “Lifeless Haze“ is their second demo, released independently on a digital format back in 2014 and now is available for the first time on tape thanks to Visceral Circuitry Records, run by the same guy behind Nihilistic Holocaust. The first track, ‘Black Death’, has some good riffs in OBLITERATION (NOR) style. Add some twisted and kind of melodic work on guitars and now you have an idea of how this sounds. The rhythm section isn’t faster as some contemporary acts but is fast enough for an old school Metal maniac. 'Bodily Shut Down', the second track here, sounds sometimes like TIMEGHOUL. Good work on guitars again. This track is faster and you can hear some blast beat here and there. The guitar solo section is great! The song ends with some slow patterns on a fade out. 'From The Womb', the next track, is another good Death Metal track adorned with some really intense parts plus twisted sounds on guitar from time to time. The last track here is ‘Lifeless Haze’. The OBLITERATION influences are evident again (mainly in the “Nekropsalms” vein). The way they close the songs is really interesting. You can hear some VOIVOD influences… “Dimension Hatröss”! PENTHOS’s music can be defined as old school Death Metal plus some semi technical intonations and a tendency to experimentation. Since this is a demo tape, the production is not so good as you may expect, but everything is perfectly audible. I really enjoyed listening to this demo. They are still active so now I’m waiting for their first full-length. If you’re into acts like the aforementioned, DISKORD, MORBUS CHRON, DISHARMONIC ORCHESTRA, O.L.D., etc., this can catch your attention.
