Erebus... Virtuosus... Alpha...
REXUL is an amazing old school Death Metal band that worships the greats of the genre and delivers ugly Death Metal via F.D.A Records. REXUL plays it close to their chest, they don’t deviate and don’t give in to the current trends, they have a single aim and it is fantastic! The riffs are precise, like a Katana cutting a paper whilst being quick and in-your-face. I looked around and found minimal information about the band, we need to know more about them. REXUL are all about the riff worship, think MORBID ANGEL delivery coupled with IMMOLATION’s ferociousness. With a brief intro titled ‘999’ we jump to the crux of the matter with track # 2 ‘Intergalactic Eyes’, the riffs hit you one after the other, the solo towards the end is magnificent, very atmospheric, very gentle yet not losing sight of the kill! I am thoroughly enjoying this release, these are the types of albums that engulf you within completely and leave you with no other thought but being crushed by a monolith. Frankly, if you sit back, think through what this exercise is all about, you realise this is what Death Metal is all about. Track # 3 ‘Reentry In Emptiness’ takes the game up by a notch, with impressive fretwork and vocals from the echelons of hell, REXUL march on with confidence of veterans whilst giving the sound a much needed kick in the ass! They mix this up with soulful melodic solos that just fit in delicately and yet add on to the experience with no burden, time and again, the band makes it clear, their destination is their message and there’s no compromise with that. For now, the band is 2 members, guitarist and one vocalist / guitarist. I genuinely hope they find an insane drummer to raise their game further and a bassist who deals with the low end monstrousness to accompany their approach. At any time when musicians get together to share a collective vision, their entire approach to music is elevated and frankly I’m very excited about this band and hopefully we will listen to more of their music sooner than later.
