CONSUMPTION
Recursive Definitions Of Suppuration
(Iron, Blood And Death Corporation)
28:46min

CONSUMPTION is a new band from Håkan Stuvemark (WOMBBATH) and frequent collaborator Jon Skäre (CROSSBOW SUICIDE, REEK, PERMADEATH etc). So we’ve got a new band from Sweden and you know the history of the members, so you figure there’s more or less an idea of how this could possibly sound. I mean, is this a HM2 driven monster? Is this a new progressive take on the existing state of Death Metal? Well, CONSUMPTION has managed to surprise me, well, yes there’s a healthy HM2 obsession, however what this band adds in, is a complete aggressive approach to the celebrated sound, all the while adding in the melodic twists to the entire sound. The band is literally attacking from all sonic corners, the sound in itself isn’t the cleanest but who cares when CONSUMPTION is delivering the goods of this quality. At a running time of 28 minutes, “Recursive Definitions Of Suppuration” is a fantastic indulgence. This is one of the best mash ups of the HM2 and melodic Death Metal in recent times and I’m quite excited about this release. The riffs are endless, you’ve heard them all before but they’re packed with phenomenal atmosphere and brilliant drumming. A shout out to Jon Skäre for absolutely slaying it on the record. He’s not just keeping up with the riffs, he clearly stands on his own adding in some brilliant parts all through the album. Håkan’s vocals sound good, he swerves between different styles and they all pack in well. In all honesty, I did not expect to enjoy this album so much, I’m frankly glad to listen to this. ‘Ictus Cordis’, the last track on the album, is the longest track, clocking 4:26, otherwise all the other songs clock in between 3 to 4 minutes and pack in the right amount of heaviness, dirt and melodic touches. A total fun album and ought to be a definite addition to any enthusiast of Swedish Death Metal or melodic Death Metal. Get a copy!
